24 What is Bullying? Bullying is a widespread and serious problem that can happen anywhere. It is not a phase children have to go through, it is not “Just messing around”, and it is not something to grow out of. Bullying can cause serious and lasting harm. Bullying takes many forms including: – Physical violence and attacks – Verbal taunts, name-calling and put downs – Threats and intimidation – Extortion or stealing or money and possessions – Exclusion from the peer group – Cyber bullying occurs when people use the Internet, mobile phones or other digital technologies to harm others

25 Types of Bullies The Name Caller Name Callers bully others by saying things that are rude, hurtful or embarrassing. They may insult people because of their race, looks, abilities, or religious beliefs. Some Name Callers use words to threaten or scare people.

26 Types of Bullies The Brute Brutes may threaten, hit, kick, trip or push others. Some brutes demand that people give them money and threaten violence if someone says no. Brutes may also take, hide or destroy other person’s belongs.

27 Types of Bullies The “Friend” The “Friend” can act nice one minute and mean the next. He/She may tease people, say bad things about them or boss them around. These bullies often make people feel like they deserve to be mistreated, calling them “touchy” if they complain about the bullying. They may also gossip or spread rumors, make up stories to get people into trouble, or pressure people into doing things they do not want to do.

28 Types of Bullies The Crowd The Crowd is a group of bullies, like a street gang or a social clique. A clique is a group of friends who share the same interest. The Crowd might tell people to ignore someone, spread false stories about a person to make him look bad, or to ask someone to do something wrong.

29 Types of Bullies The Jokester Jokester bullies love to get attention and make others laugh by insulting or teasing people about things like their size, race, religion, looks or grades. Some will even make fun of people who have a medical problem or physical disability. Jokesters usually excuse their bullying by saying it was “only a joke.”

30 Types of Bullies The Cyberbully Cyberbullying is similar to other types of bullying, except it takes place online and through text messages sent to cell phones. Cyberbullies can be classmates, online acquaintances, and even anonymous users, but most often they do know their victims.

31 Types of Bullies The Cyberbully Some examples of ways kids bully online are:  Sending someone mean or threatening emails, instant messages, or text messages  Excluding someone from an instant messenger buddy list or blocking their email for no reason  Tricking someone into revealing personal or embarrassing information and sending it to others  Breaking into someone's email or instant message account to send cruel or untrue messages while posing as that person  Creating websites to make fun of another person such as a classmate or teacher  Using website to rate peers as prettiest, ugliest, etc.

32 Types of Bullies The Cyberbully Both boys and girls sometimes bully online and just as in face-to-face bullying, tend to do so in different ways. Boys more commonly bully by sending messages of a sexual nature or by threatening to fight or hurt someone. Girls more often bully by spreading rumors and by sending messages that make fun of someone or exclude others. They also tell secrets.

33 Bully Fact: Each day 160,000 students miss school for fear of being bullied! Bullying can lead teenagers to feel tense, anxious, and afraid. It can affect their concentration in school, and can lead them to avoid school in some cases.

34 MYTH: – If I tell someone it will just make it worse FACT: – Research shows that bullying will stop when adults in authority and peers get involved

35 MYTH: – Just stand up for yourself and hit them back FACT: – Hitting back usually makes the bullying worse and increases the risk for serious physical harm

36 MYTH: – People are born bullies FACT: – Bullying is a learned behavior and behaviors can be changed. If bullying continues for some time, it can begin to affect teens’ self-esteem and feeling of self-worth. It also can increase their social isolation, leading them to become withdrawn and depressed, anxious, and insecure.
