What is Bullying?
Bullying is defined as the unwanted, aggressive behavior among school-age children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is reasonably perceived as being de-humanizing, intimidating, hostile, humiliating, threatening, or otherwise likely to evoke fear of physical harm or emotional distress. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.
