Introduction:There are different types of bullying and all of them are a growing problem in our society. It is one of the biggest problems that young people face today. It is mean and degrading and hurts the self esteem of all victims.
One of the different types of bullying is done for social reasons. This type of bully will go behind a person's back to destroy their reputation. They will spread rumors that harm the victim. They will not invite them to any social activities and will encourage everyone else to do the same. They are masterful at breaking up friendships.
Verbal bullies get right up in the victim's face. They will call them names and tease them. The name calling is demeaning and extremely hurtful. If they get a reaction, they will keep doing it. There is power that comes with verbal forms of bullying, especially if the bully can get others to follow in their cruelty.
Another one of the different types of bullying comes in the form of physical abuse. Bullies that use this method will hit, punch and shove. They will wait for the opportunity to physically injure a person. Once they have done their damage, they move on to the next unsuspecting victim. Everyone gets out of their way or they comply to the bully's demands. It is another way to gain power.
Cyber bullying is something that happens on the internet. These forms of bullying make it is easy to be mean and hurtful. It is easier to do while hiding behind something like a computer screen. There are hateful messages that are put up on Facebook. Mobile phones are also used to send these mean messages. Digital technology is used to attack someone with the intent of upsetting them.
There are different types of bullying that are a little more hard to detect. They are sneaky in nature. They can be in the form of a gentle put down. An example would be seeing a picture of someone and telling them something like, "I bet you were upset that you had a bad hair day when that picture was taken." These little snide comments are sly ways bullies use to get their point across.
Such an important topic you have brought to our awareness. I've written several articles about rampant bullying on the college campus. I give you a HI5 my friend.
I have suffered from bullies all my life. Thanks for the list. H5
I am sorry to say I know the bullies on your list are rightly described. My question is why do bullies get a charge out of hurting others?
