Bullying. Many people have been bullied by older people, stronger people, or just people who think they are better than everyone else. But what is the definition of bullying?

Well, it 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.

There are three types of bullying. One type is verbal, which includes teasing, name-calling, inappropriate sexual comments, taunting, and threatening to cause harm. With this type of bullying, not many people can say that it has not happened to them. I know that I have been bullied in this way more than once, but this type of bullying is quite normal with children these days.

Another type is physical bullying, which includes hitting/kicking/pinching, spitting, tripping/pushing, taking or breaking someone’s things, or making mean or rude hand gestures. This bullying is when children start to feel worthless. Being pushed and kicked around makes a person feel weak, and as if someone can’t defend himself/herself, which leads to depression, and in very bad cases, suicide.

And the last type is social, which includes leaving someone out on purpose, telling others to not be someone’s friend, spreading rumors, and embarrassing someone in public. These also make a person feel very lonely and as if he/she shouldn’t be alive.

So many people have been bullied and so many stories have been told, but people just don’t stop. Now they have come up with National Bullying Day, which was held on Oct. 26.

It makes me sad when I see people bullying others, but how can one person stop it? If people unite against this, then hopefully it can stop and people will see that it is a horrible thing. People should never feel as if they should be dead! Bullying should be stopped, so let’s stop it together.
