Bullying in Schools Before we can discuss the different types of bullying, we must first have an understanding of what bullying is. Bullying is an aggressive behavior that involves unwanted negative actions; a pattern of behavior repeated over time and involves an imbalance of power or strength. Bullying has many different versions. It can include physical which consists of hitting, slapping, and shoving in a hurtful way, just to name a few. There's also verbal, and some examples of this are name calling, put downs, threats and intimidation.
Example: child X (being the bully) jokes with child V (the victim) and child V is offended by X’s joke. Such type of bullying affects both the victim and the “bully” – when this happens for more than once child V will start to feel less confident. However, as a result of a repetitive behaviour from the child X the “bully” will be excluded by the rest of the class or group.
