What is Bullying?

What is bullying? There is some confusion about what constitutes bullying.
Bullying is defined as something that someone repeatedly does or says things to gain power over or to dominate another person. The following are some of the common examples of bullying:

Name calling, put-downs, cruel teasing;

Saying or writing nasty things about other people;

Deliberately excluding certain individuals from activities;

Not talking to specific individuals;

Threatening anyone with bodily harm;

Taking or damaging things;

Hitting or kicking

Making someone do something they don’t want to do.

Kinds of bullies:
There are several kinds of bullies. “Proactive bullies” need no provocation and are naturally more aggressive towards others.

This group frequently has poor social and relational skills and compensates for this lack by picking on others.

“Reactive bullies” have often been victimized by other bullies who then retaliate by becoming a bully. A third group of bullies might be called “provocative victims.”

These people provoke fights or aggressive encounters with others. They are quick to become oppositional or defiant and cry or display exaggerated responses in conflict situations.

This group is the most rejected by peers and has the fewest friends (Marano, H., 1995).

Another recent study showed that it is often difficult for even peers to identify who are the bullies and who are the victims because the vortex of violence is so prevalent and so many participate in it. (Paulk, et al., (1999).
