WHEN AND WHERE


DOES BULLYING
USUALLY OCCUR?

COMMON TIME AND PLACE


WHERE BULLYING OCCURS

At the start of the schoolyear, bullies


begin looking for easy targets

Can occur virtually everywhere especially


where there is no adult supervision but
mainly in hidden areas

Can happen where teachers and students


accept bullying or are indifferent to it.

WHY DO STUDENTS
KEEP BULLYING A
SECRET?

REASONS FOR SECRECY

They think telling someone about it is


wrong.
They have told or heard someone else tell
adults about bullying before, and nothing
was done about it.
They are afraid adults will make the
situation worse.
They are embarrassed because they feel
no one likes them
They feel shame because they are weak
and cannot stand up for themselves as
they are taught
They do not want their parents to worry.

ARE THERE
DIFFERENT TYPE OF
VICTIMS?

PASSIVE OR SUBMISSIVE

Generally quiet, cautious, sensitive,


and perhaps easily moved to tears
Insecure, and have little selfconfidence
Have few or no friends
Very afraid of getting hurt or hurting
themselves
Find it easier to associate with adults
than peers

PROVOCATIVE OR FIGHTER

Have tempers and may try to fight back if


bullied, but usually without success
Restless, clumsy, immature, unfocused, and
generally perceived as awkward or tiresome.
Some are hyper-active; they may be fidgety,
impulsive, or restless and have difficulty
concentrating.
May have reading and writing problems.
May be disliked by adults because of their own
irritating behavior
May try to bully weaker students and therefore
may be both victims and bullies.
Some are popular and some are not. Ones
popularity does not assure ones safety from
bullies.

WHY MUST
BULLYING BE
STOPPED?

STOP BULLYING

Makes the lives of its victims miserable


Undermines their confidence and
destroys their sense of security
Can also affect children and young
peoples attendance and progress at
school.
Can cause sadness, loneliness, low
self-esteem, fear, anxiety, and poor
concentration, and may lead to selfharm, depression, suicidal thoughts,
and in some cases, SUICIDE.
