Bullying

Each
year there are more than 3.2 million students who are the victims of a bully.
Bullying is defined as hurtful, mean behavior happening continually in
any relationship that has an imbalance of strength or power. Bullying is
considered as the main problem for students at school, because aggressive
students use their strength to annoy, tease, or hurt young kids. There are
several types of bullies that mostly happen all around the world, but the most
common ones are physical bullying, verbal bullying, and cyber bullying. In fact
bullying has many negative impacts and effects on people, especially students
at middle and high school. However, bullying is not considered a problem or
issue that can’t be fixed or prevented. At school, teachers are responsible and
have the duty to inform and educate their students about the consequences of
bullying and its negative impacts on other students. Not only teachers, but
also students themselves can take an action and help prevent bullying at their
school area. They can either write an article for the schools newspaper or start an anti-bullying club or
prevention program. Bullying is linked to many negative
outcomes including impacts on mental health, substance use, and suicide. However,
we can all work together to stop this worldwide issue and problem before it
gets more extreme and intense.

Types of Bullying

Bullying’s around the world

          There are many types of bullying, but the common one’s are,
physical bullying, verbal bullying, and cyber bullying. Although all of these
types are really harmful for people, but the most dangerous type of bullying is
the physical bullying. Now physical bullying is one of the most dangerous types
because it hurts someone’s body or damages their possessions (Thompson, 2014).
It Includes physical touch, Kuykendall (2012) such as nudging, slapping,
kicking, pushing, spitting, tripping, tugging on hair, stepping on someone’s
toe, inappropriate touching, or throwing something at a victim (p.43). Verbal
bullying is
any bullying that is done by talking. Making fun of names, spreading rumors,
and threatening somebody, are all forms of verbal bullying. The main thing used
in verbal bullying is voice. Any type of bullying using technology is
classified as cyber bullying. Cyber bullying and verbal bullying are similar in
some ways, but cyber bullying is any type of disturbance, harassment, and
racism over e-mails, social media like (twitter), and cell phones. As shown in Figure
1, cyber bullying and verbal bullying are alike in some ways, so this results
in sharing the same percentage of victims being bullied around the world. For
instance, because physical bullying has to do with physical touch and it
requires strength and power, it is less common around the world and it occurs less
comparing to the other types of bullying.

bullying is just part of growing up and a way for young people to learn to
stick up for themselves, but an author disclaimed this statement. According to Thorpe (2015) “being bullied as a child leaves
you at higher risk of developing
psychological disorders as an adult “. As shown in
figure 2, a man was bullied since he was young and now after 52 years he is
suffering with physiological disorders as an adult. As shown in figure 3, Ryan Halligan, age 13, was an American student, from Vermont, who died by suicide at the age of 13
after allegedly being bullied by his classmates, according to the Associated
