Bullying.org states that bullying is the assertion of power through aggression. Its forms change with age and can start with playground bullying.
“Bullying is not about anger."
It is not a conflict to be resolved, it’s about contempt –a powerful feeling of dislike toward someone considered to be worthless, inferior or undeserving of respect. Students may feel they have the right to hurt or control others, an intolerance towards difference, and a freedom to exclude, bar, isolate and segregate others” (Barbara Coloroso “The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander)
“If I tell someone, it will just make it worse."
Research shows that bullying will stop when adults and peers get involved and students stand up and tell.
