The Different Types of Bullying UNDERSTANDING LEADS TO RESOLUTION
Six Main Types of Bullying Physical Taunting Rumor Spreading Social Isolation Cyberbullying Threats
Characteristics of Physical Bullying Physical acts of aggression include biting, punching and kicking. Also includes destruction of property. For example, destroying another child’s work of art. Stealing items from the victim, including lunch money and possessions.
Teasing and Taunting Verbal bullying makes up nearly half of all the bullying that goes on in schools. Includes name calling, nasty comments about a child’s race, religion, or socioeconomic standing, and any other cruel words designed to belittle a child. Often focuses on a real or imagined difference. Examples: taunting a child with a lisp, telling another child that she smells bad.
I Heard a Rumor… Spreading rumors about a child is designed to damage the victim’s reputation. Common in high school, especially among other girls. May include breaking a confidence. Example: Sally tells Julie a secret. Sally and Julie stop being friends. Julie tells the whole school Sally’s secret. Rumors are often untrue. Sadly, teens typically do not consider the source or verify information before latching on to a rumor.
Social Isolation Perhaps one of the most brutal forms of bullying, social isolation entails ostracizing the victim from the rest of the social circle. Victim typically sits alone and lunch and doesn’t get invited to parties. Other children may be bullied into avoiding the victim, told that if they communicate with him, they will be socially isolated as well.
Cyberbullying Relatively new form of bullying, therefore one of the least understood. Involves spreading rumors or stalking through social media. May even involve spreading embarrassing photos of the victim. Affecting children at younger ages each year.
Threats of Harm or Isolation The mere threat of harm or social isolation is an act of bullying. Designed to force victim to comply with bully’s agenda. In many cases, worrying about danger to come is just as emotionally traumatizing of dealing with the other types of bulling.
