Bullying Definition

An unhappy teen boy walks away from bullying girls. Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.

In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:

  • An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
  • Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.

Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

Types of Bullying

There are three types of bullying:

  • Verbal bullying is saying or writing mean things. Verbal bullying includes:
    • Teasing
    • Name-calling
    • Inappropriate sexual comments
    • Taunting
    • Threatening to cause harm
  • Social bullying, sometimes referred to as relational bullying, involves hurting someone’s reputation or relationships. Social bullying includes:
    • Leaving someone out on purpose
    • Telling other children not to be friends with someone
    • Spreading rumors about someone
    • Embarrassing someone in public
  • Physical bullying involves hurting a person’s body or possessions. Physical bullying includes:
    • Hitting/kicking/pinching
    • Spitting
    • Tripping/pushing
    • Taking or breaking someone’s things
    • Making mean or rude hand gestures

Where and When Bullying Happens

Bullying can occur during or after school hours. While most reported bullying happens in the school building, a significant percentage also happens in places like on the playground or the bus. It can also happen travelling to or from school, in the youth’s neighborhood, or on the Internet.

Frequency of Bullying

There are two sources of federally collected data on youth bullying:

  • The 2010–2011 School Crime Supplement (National Center for Education Statistics and Bureau of Justice Statistics) indicates that, nationwide, 28% of students in grades 6–12 experienced bullying.
  • The 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) indicates that, nationwide, 20% of students in grades 9–12 experienced bullying.Research on cyberbullying is growing. However, because kids’ technology use changes rapidly, it is difficult to design surveys that accurately capture trends.

You are the light- just let em’ know that they have done a GOOD JOB

“I do not know the answer to the violence, evil and darkness in the world but I do know the response.

It is your warm, unexpected smile as you pass a stranger on the street. It is speaking up and standing up for those who are being discriminated against and letting them know we are much more alike than we are different. And it’s offering not only a kind word but a warm hand to those struggling to find their way, earn a living, feed their children and make a better life.

The response to darkness is your compassion, your kindness, your love and the very light of your heart and soul. As dark as it may get, always remember that you are of the light and the light will always, always prevail.”

Paul S Boynton


Polce Officers— GOOD JOB






When two Michigan policemen were notified that a woman parked at a local McDonald’s was holding a baby in her lap, they came ready to issue a citation. But after spending a few minutes with mom, they decided to donate a car seat instead.

Officers Jason Pavlige and James Hodges learned that the couple, who were new to Fruitport Township, did not have the financial means to buy a proper car seat—and had no family or friends in the area.

To ensure the 10-month-old girl’s safety, Pavlige and Hodges not only used their own money to buy one, they installed the car seat and instructed the family on its use.dachsund ABC-7

“The father was, I think, almost in shock,” Hodges, 26, an almost two-year veteran of the force, told ABC News.

A lieutenant on the force, Bruce Morningstar, said the good deed was brought to the department’s attention by a clerk at Walmart, who wanted them to be recognized for their kindness.

Both men were hailed for their action in a letter from the department that read in part, ‘This certainly goes above and beyond what is expected of you in serving our community.”



arrested Florida teen saves officer

A teen, who was hand-cuffed at the time, will be honored next week for saving the life of the Fort Lauderdale policeman who had arrested him.

On September 10, 2014, Officer Franklin Foulks was alone with Jamal Rutledge in a holding area filling out paperwork, when he suddenly collapsed. According to a police statement, the defendant “immediately began to kick the security fence and yell to alert officers in the area.”

They reported that medical staff said later Rutledge’s actions were largely responsible for Officer Foulks surviving the incident.When other officers heard the teen, they found Officer Foulks lying on the ground clenching his chest and notified rescue services before using CPR and a defibrillator to keep him alive.According to the Fort Lauderdale police department, Rutledge was being booked on a violation of juvenile probation. The teen and the three Fort Lauderdale police officers will be commended at a ceremony next Wednesday.


On Monday afternoon, a cop in New York named Patrick Hildenbrand pulled over a 20-year-old guy named Matthew Morgan for speeding.

But it turned out Matthew’s two-year-old son, Matthew Jr., had just had a SEIZURE, wasn’t breathing, didn’t have a PULSE, and they were racing to the hospital. So Patrick told Matthew to jump in the back of his police car, and they took off together.

Then he called ahead to let doctors know what was up, and told Matthew how to do CPR on a child. But Matthew was too freaked out to follow his directions.

So Patrick held the steering wheel with his left hand . . . reached into the backseat with his right hand . . . and HE started doing chest compressions WHILE they were speeding to the hospital.


It saved the boy’s LIFE. When they got to the hospital he started breathing again, and it looks like he’ll be okay.


And lets add this one with a GOOD JOB.
