What is bullying?

Bullying may seem obvious, which is picking on other people. However, bullying can come in different forms. Many teenagers often cannot recognize when they are being bullied.

  • Physical bullying: Harassing others physically through hitting, pushing, and tripping.

  • Verbal bullying: Teasing and taunting.

  • Psychological bullying: Gossiping about others or excluding them from making them feel bad about themselves.

  • Cyberbullying: Posting information (comments, images, or videos) to humiliate others.

What should I do if I am being bullied?
