What is bullying?
You can usually identify bullying by the following three characteristics: intentional (to hurt), it happens repeatedly, and there is a difference of power.
A bully does intend to cause pain to his victim, either physically or verbally, or behaviorally hurt, and does so repeatedly. Boys are more likely to experience physical bullying, while girls are more likely to experience psychological bullying, although the two types of course tend to be related.
Bullying is a pattern of behavior, not an occasional incident.
Children who bully usually come from a higher social status or position of power, such as children who are older, more powerful, or are considered popular so they can abuse their position.
