- these are all things that young people shouldn’t have to deal with, but do. We use the term ‘bullying’ to describe this kind of behaviour. Other people might call it ‘harassment,’ ‘abuse,’ ‘meanness’ or ‘drama’.
Being the target of bullying can be hurtful, scary, and isolating. It can also be upsetting to be a witness to bullying. Even though it’s difficult, remember: you’re not alone, and there are ways you can keep bullying out of your life.
In this section, you’ll find out more about what bullying is and some strategies that can help you if you are being bullied at school or in your community. You’ll also learn about what to do if you’ve witnessed bullying, or if you are bullying others.
