What is Bullying? and Examples of Bullying

Boy suffers from bullying at school

Bullying happens when someone with power hurts another person over and over again. This is a big issue, especially among kids in the United States. It causes lasting problems for everyone involved, both the person being bullied and the one doing the bullying. Bullying can happen in different ways, like saying mean things, hurting someone physically, damaging relationships, or doing it online. Online bullying is harder to notice and stop. Besides causing anxiety, sadness, PTSD, and making people feel alone, bullying also messes up how people relate to each other in the long run.
