What you need to know about bullying:
Bullying is different from conflicts, fights, or disagreements. Bullying is physical or emotional abuse that has three defining characteristics:
- It's on purpose
- It happens over and over again
- It's an abuse of power
Inflicting physical or emotional harm is never acceptable. But it's not bullying unless it meets three criteria: It's on purpose, it happens over and over again, and it's an abuse of power.
