Bullying is being mean to another student over and over again. Bullying often includes: Teasing Talking about hurting someone Spreading rumors Leaving kids out on purpose Attacking someone by hitting them or yelling at them Bullying does not always happen in person. Cyberbullying is a type of bullying that happens online or through text messages or emails. It includes posting rumors on sites like Facebook, sharing embarrassing pictures or videos, and making fake profiles or websites.
Statistics released in 2010 are showing that bullying is still a problem among children and teens, but is taking on a different approach with cyberbullying becoming more and more rampant in school and after school among teens and children. Social networking has provided an entirely new environment for bullying to take place. According to bullying statistics 2010, there are about 2.7 million students being bullied each year by about 2.1 students taking on the role of the bully.
Family risk factors for bullying: A lack of warmth and involvement on the part of parents. Overly-permissive parenting (including a lack of limits for children’s behavior). A lack of supervision by parents. Harsh, physical discipline. Parent modelling of bullying behavior. Victimization by older brothers.
Peer risk factors for bullying: Friends who bully. Friends who have positive attitudes about violence. Some aggressive children who take on high status roles may use bullying as a way to enhance their social power and protect their prestige with peers. Some children with low social status may use bullying as a way to deflect taunting and aggression that is directed towards them, or to enhance their social position with higher status peers. Other Factors: Bullying thrives in schools where faculty and staff do not address bullying, where there is no policy against bullying, and where there is little supervision of students—especially during lunch, bathroom breaks, and recess. Models of bullying behavior are prevalent throughout society, especially in television, movies, and video games. When children are aggregated together, they associate with others who are similar to them or who have qualities or characteristics that in some way support their own behaviors.
