Just like a mean clown, I will shout at you and push you down. I seem big and bad, but I am really just small and sad. With words, I cut you deep and with my hands I hit to make you weep. But you have power over me, if you just brave enough to see. My weapon is your silence and fear- without it, I wouldn't even come near. Today I am talking to you about bullying and how we can stop it for good!

Social bullying includes bullying people in public, teasing, and purposely pushing people around. Cyberbullying is when people bully you on the internet. Verbal bullying is name calling and saying mean words to others.

Many people bully others because they don't know how to deal with frustrations, hurt, anger that they are feeling.  For example someone being picked on and doesn't know how to deal with it, they get angry and start bullying others.

You should talk to an adult or teacher you trust about why you are feeling like that or to your friend. If you think you have bullied someone in the past, just apologize and it will be ok.
