A bully is defined as a blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people (“Bully,” 2012).

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.

This ongoing bullying drives children to depression and self-harming themselves to get rid of the pain. The victims of bullying don’t realise that there are others out there that are in the same position and
This phrase simply means if you don’t give the child a spanking when they deserve it, you’re teaching them that their behavior is ok. A typical spanking (a couple swats with a hand) may be physically harmless; however, it can get out of hand. When a spanking is given out of anger or with a belt, stick or other instrument, it becomes both physical and emotional abuse (Ciccarelli & White, 2012 p.188). This is why spanking is considered a severe form of punishment. Severe forms of punishment have many drawbacks associated with them. Severe punishment can cause the child being punished to avoid the punisher instead of the behavior being punished, so the child learns to respond the wrong way (Ciccarelli & White,

The test subjects showed to be impulsive, to be danger seekers, and rejected traditional values, had aggressive attitudes, as well as having the feeling of alienation.

Bullies seldom zone in on others that can potentially stand- up to them or challenge them. A bully will exercise their power on individuals that may: be from a different race or religion, a different socioeconomic background, be over or under weight, have a disability or even be an introvert- type within the workplace. Part of the bullying dynamic is the power imbalance between the bully and the victim, which is a guarantee that the bullying is unlikely to be reported. Bullying is a social process that can have a detrimental effect on our future. Similar to other forms of abuse, bullying is often hidden, thus creating the unlikelihood of finding a
Other children may laugh at and bully the overweight child, which results in low self confidence and the child being embarrassed about himself. Obesity and being overweight is very often a consequence of bad diet and a low energy lifestyle, which has a negative effect on the physical, emotional and social development of a child. Disability in children is a factor which can hugely affect a child’s development. For example, being unable to walk would be a detriment to the child’s physical development, but be advantageous to his/her intellectual development as they would be more inclined to read or engage themselves in learning new skills. However, the child may also be left confused as to why he/she is different to the rest of the children which would affect the emotional, social and behavioural development of the child.
* While smacking was the most feared form of punishment, it was the emotional distress and humiliation that can be caused by smacking, rather than any physical pain, which children feared. * Children felt that methods such as restricting access to television, toys and so forth were more effective than smacking as they were longer lasting, inconvenienced them more, and gave them time to reflect. * Smacking was often associated with parents being out of control, not setting a good example, and not supporting communication between parent and child. * Some children felt smacking sent a message which
