Bullying what is it? What can you do?

Bullying is classed as using influence, force or coercion in order to make someone do something, usually against their will. Bullying comes in a variety of forms including:

  • Verbal (e.g. name calling, insulting, derogatory language)
  • Physical (e.g. punching, kicking, pushing)
  • Emotional (e.g. rumour spreading, isolating, teasing)
  • Cyber (e.g. online, phone, social media)

There are many websites and action helplines that can help both young people and parents/carers understand more about bullying, its effects and how to get help.
