A Definition of Bullying
There is no legal definition of bullying. But it is usually defined as repeated behaviour over time which is intended to hurt someone either emotionally or physically, and is often aimed at certain people because of their appearance, religion, behaviour, disabilities or illness, family, even how well you are doing at school or how popular you are. It is always best to try and dismiss bullying remarks. If a bully sees that they can upset you then they will keep trying. Many people are the victim of bullying and it is important to remember that no-one should be bullied.
