Harassment, intimidation or bullying (HIB) is any intentional written, verbal, or physical act against another individual as a show of power.

Hib as abuses of power

HIB as Abuses of Power

  • Involves one person or a group of people with power over another.

Staff responses count

Staff responses count----

  • Teachers need to understand that their response to bullying makes a difference.

  • Teachers need to validate a child’s pain and concern when a child comes to them for help.

  • If you minimize the problem we are sending a message to that child that their fears don’t matter.
