  1. 1. What is Bullying? 1. Bullying is intentional aggressive behavior. It can take the form of physical or verbal harassment and involves an imbalance of power (a group of children can gang up on a victim or someone who is physically bigger or more aggressive can intimidate someone else, for instance). 2. Bullying behavior can include teasing, insulting someone (particularly about their weight or height, race, sexuality, religion or other personal traits), shoving, hitting, excluding someone, or gossiping about someone. 3. Bullying can cause a victim to feel upset, afraid, ashamed, embarrassed, and anxious about going to school. It can involve children of any age, including younger elementary grade-schoolers and even kindergarteners.

  5. 5. What is Cyberbullying? • Cyberbullying is just what it sounds like - bullying through Internet pplications and technologies such as instant messaging (IM), social networking sites, and cell phones. • It can start easily—with a rumor, a photo, or a forwarded message—and just as easily spiral out of control. • An embarrassing video posted to a social 
networking site by someone in Kansas tonight may be watched by someone in Japan tomorrow. • Cyberbullying victims may be targeted anywhere, at any time. http://stopcyberbullying.org/

take screenshots of comments and images. Also, take note of the 
date and time when the harassment occurs. •  • Contact your Internet service provider (ISP) or cell phone 
provider. Ask the website administrator or ISP to remove any 
Web page that was created to hurt. •  • If harassment is via e-mail, social networking sites, IM, and chat rooms, “block” bullies or delete your current account and open a new one. •  • If harrassment is via text and phone messages, change 
the phone number and then only share the new number with 
trustworthy people. Also, check out phone features that may 
allow the number to be blocked. •  • Get the school involved. Learn the school’s policy on 
cyberbullying. Here is the NYCDOE policy •  • Make a report to www.cybertipline.com, and if you feel something illegal has occurred, inform law enforcement.
