           Types of Bullying
•   The four major types of bullying are...
•   Exclusion bullying
•   Physical bullying
•   Cyber bullying
•   Verbal bullying
    A 13-year old girl was once bullied in
school. She was a bi-racial student in a town
with very few people of colour. She was
verbally bullied in and outside of school. She
was teased, made fun of and had racist
comments made towards her on a regular
basis. When she’d felt like there was nothing
else to do and no one to help her she tried to
take her own life by cutting her wrists. All it
takes is for someone to stand up and stop the
     This type of bullying occurs when a person
is excluded or isolated from a group or group
conversation. It can be a direct attack at a
person’s self-esteem.
        Physical Bullying
Physical Bullying occurs when a
person is harmed physically. Some of
the ways you can bully or be physically
bullied is slapping, hitting, punching,
pinching, kicking etc.
         Cyber Bullying
Cyber Bullying is a kind of bullying
which utilizes web pages, emails, text
messages and other electronic
devices to abuse, intimidate, and or
threaten others.
                     Verbal Bullying
This is a type of bullying that occurs when a person’s feelings are hurt by verbal or oral attacks.
Some examples of verbal bullying are taunting, teasing, spreading rumors, as well making racist or
homophobic comments.
                                Cyber Bullying
What is cyber bullying?
       "Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated,
       embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet,
       interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones.

How does cyber bullying work?
       There are two kinds of cyber bullying:

I.     Direct attacks (messages sent to your kids directly)‫‏‬
II.    Cyber bullying by proxy (using others to help cyber bully the victim, either with or without the
       accomplice's knowledge). Cyber bullying by proxy often gets adults involved in the harassment, it
       is much more dangerous.
III.   The adults who can help you stop this have not yet been told by you that you need help or that
       this is happening. Adults don't know everything that is going on and often need to be told and
       asked by you for help.
IV.    You may not know who is bullying you
V.     You don’t know who else has seen
       the hurtful messages since the Internet is public
VI.    Once the bullying stops, it could start again very quickly
       if someone forwards a mean message about you
VII.   Bullies can reach you any time and any place
       as long as your computer or cell phone is on
                              Cyber Bullying
 How can we prevent cyber bullying?
     Educating the kids about the
     consequences (losing their ISP or IM
     accounts) helps. Teaching them to respect
     others and to take a stand against bullying
     of all kinds helps too.
People who are cyber-bullied might:
I. Feel scared to use the Internet or cell
II. Worry that everyone is against them
III. Wonder who else knows that they have
     been bullied
IV. Feel alone
V. Feel ashamed
What we can do about cyber bullying?
     Guard your contact information. Don't
     give people you don't know your cell
     phone number, instant messaging name
     or e-mail address.
                            Cyber Bullying
                                              If you are being harassed online, take the
                                                   following actions immediately:

                                              1.   Tell an adult you trust - a teacher, parent, older
                                                   sibling or grandparent.

                                              2.   If you are being harassed, leave the area or stop
                                                   the activity (i.e. chat room, news group, online
                                                   gaming area, instant messaging, etc.).

3.   If you are being bullied through e-mail or instant messaging, block the sender's
     messages. Never reply to harassing messages.

4.   Save any harassing messages and forward them to your Internet Service Provider (i.e.
     Hotmail or Yahoo). Most service providers have appropriate use policies that restrict
     users from harassing others over the Internet - and that includes kids!

5.   If the bullying includes physical threats, tell the police as well.

6.   Take a stand against cyber bullying with your peers. Speak out whenever you see
     someone being mean to another person online. Most kids respond better to criticism from
     their peers than to disapproval from adults.
