Bullying is an act of aggressive behavior, which may be ongoing, in order to intentionally hurt another person. Bullying behavior may include:
exclusion from activities
Bullies may behave this way to be perceived as popular, tough, or to get attention. Bullying may seem harmless, but it can be very painful for the person targeted. Being the target of bullying can lead to depression and school performance and attendance issues. Bullies select their targets for many different reasons, such as race, ability, appearance, sexual orientation, gender and gender identity, or are just perceived to be different.
