Definitions:

  • “Approximately 10 to 15% of students experience bullying severe enough that they suffer psychological harm” – Hoover
  • Bullying: Acts of aggression, physical or emotional, that harass a weaker individual.
  • Weaker can mean physically, emotionally, or socially. Victims usually lack psychological resources to handle to their bullies.
  • “The majority of school bullying is not overt violence; rather, it is covert psychological warfare. It comes in the form of social ridicule, psychological intimidations, and group rejection.” – Brendtro
  • Specifically can be name calling, excluding, rumor spreading, dirty looks, mocking, demeaning notes or pictures, or pushing or physical aggression

    • Bullying is natural part of growing up
    • Bullying \'toughens up\' the victim
