Physical Bullying

Physical bullying is a serious problem, affecting not only the bully and the victim, but also the other students who witness the bullying. Parents, teachers, and other concerned adults and young people should be aware of what a physical bully is and some of the ways to handle it.

There are many types of negative physical interactions that can occur between young people, including fighting, practical jokes, stealing, and sexual harassment. These things are not considered physical bullying unless:

The same victim is targeted repeatedly

The bully or bullies intend to hurt, embarrass, or intimidate the victim

The actions occur in a situation with a real or perceived imbalance of power, such as when the bully is stronger than the victim or has a higher social standing

In this context, physical bullying can take many forms:

Hitting

Pushing

Tripping

Slapping

Spitting

Stealing or destroying possessions, including books, clothing, or lunch money

Physical bullying occurs most often at school, though it can also occur on the way to and from school and after school. Middle school is the age when bullying is most common, with almost all middle school students being affected directly or indirectly by bullying. This is an age where young people want more to fit in with their peers, making some students more likely to bully or condone bullying to fit in, while those who don’t fit in stand out more as victims. Bullying can also occur in earlier grades, as well as through high school and even into adulthood.

If a student is a victim of bullying, show love and support to the child and explain that the bullying is not their fault, and that what the bully is doing is wrong. Talk to the victim to find out when and how the bullying is taking place, then talk to teachers and school administrators about the problem. Bullying should always be taken seriously.

A project like this can help a lot of children. Bullying affect the everyday life of a children. Sometimes they are scared to go to school because they are afraid that they might get hurt. I hope this project can help a lot of victims and spread awareness so that bullying will be prevented. Bring the victim's "smile" back. Thank you for sharing this, I hope people are aware now of the happening.
