What is Bullying? Definition from Stopbullying.gov


Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have

serious, lasting problems

In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:

  • An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.

  • Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.

Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.


Determine if it's Bullying

There are many behaviors that look like bullying but require different approaches. It is important to determine whether the situation is bullying or something else.


Here are some suggestions to determine if this is bullying or something else, consider the following questions:

  • What is the history between the kids involved? Have there been past conflicts?

  • Is there a power imbalance? Remember that a power imbalance is not limited to physical strength. It is sometimes not easily recognized. If the targeted child feels like there is a power imbalance, there probably is.

  • Has this happened before? Is the child worried it will happen again?

  • Have the kids dated? There are special responses for teen dating violence.

  • Are any of the kids involved with a gang? Gang violence has different interventions.

Remember that it may not matter “who started it.” Some kids who are bullied may be seen as annoying or provoking, but this does not excuse the bullying behavior.


Bullying vs. Teasing


Bullying & its outcomes are always intended & typically repeated.

Teasing & its outcomes are often NOT intended; may be isolated or repeated; & center on a lack of awareness regarding potential outcomes:
                           Inappropriate conduct
                           Hurt feelings, embarrassment
                           Hostile environments
                           Broken rules
                           Potential consequences for self

If teasing is repeated over time, then it may become bullying
