The Physical Bullying

Physical bullying is a serious problem, affecting not only the bully and the victim, but also the other students who witness the bullying. Parents, teachers, and other concerned adults and young people should be aware of what a physical bully is and some of the ways to handle it.

There are many types of negative physical interactions that can occur between young people, including fighting, practical jokes, stealing, and sexual harassment. These things are not considered physical bullying unless:

  • The same victim is targeted repeatedly
  • The bully or bullies intend to hurt, embarrass, or intimidate the victim
  • The actions occur in a situation with a real or perceived imbalance of power, such as when the bully is stronger than the victim or has a higher social standing

In this context, physical bullying can take many forms:

  • Hitting
  • Pushing
  • Tripping
  • Slapping
  • Spitting
  • Stealing or destroying possessions, including books, clothing, or lunch money
