    What Is The Definition of Bullying?

    A lot of young people have a good idea of what bullying is because they see it every day! Bullying happens when someone hurts or scares another person on purpose and the person being bullied has a hard time defending himself or herself. Usually, bullying happens over and over.

    • Punching, shoving, and other acts that hurt people physically
    • Spreading bad rumors about people
    • Keeping certain people out of a “group”
    • Teasing people in a mean way
    • Getting certain people to “gang up” on others

    Bullying also can happen online or electronically. Cyberbullying is when children or teens bully each other using the Internet, mobile phones or other cyber technology. This can include:

    • Sending mean text, email, or instant messages
    • Posting nasty pictures or messages about others in blogs or on Web sites
    • Using someone else’s user name to spread rumors or lies about someone

    Take a look at Webisode 5 to see an example of cyberbullying. There are many ways that young people bully each other, even if they don’t realize it at the time.

    Unfortunately, not everyone takes bullying seriously, including adults. This is one of the main reasons that the Youth Expert Panel has worked alongside the representatives of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) to develop the Take A Stand. Lend A Hand. Stop Bullying Now! Campaign.
