Bullying is when someone repeatedly hurts or threatens another person on purpose. Bullying comes in many forms- name calling, spreading rumors, phsyically hurting someone or even leaving people out.
Talk to your parents, teacher or someone you can trust to stop the bullying. Saying a few kind words to the person who was bullied makes a huge difference. You can volunteer to help with your school's bullying program!
