Bullying is a form of pushy behavior used to cause harm and usually happens over and over. A child is picked on by one or more children with repeated negative actions over a period of time. These are intentional attempts to cause discomfort or injury and can include name-calling, making faces, nasty gesturing, hurtful teasing, being left out, threats, rumors, physical hitting, kicking, pushing and choking. Cyber-bullying is also a real and growing problem today.

Make no mistake, bullying of any kind is a form of violence that should not be allowed. Parents and Educators together should address bullying and social skill development within the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP).
