Bullying is aform of aggressive behavior, which may manifest as abusive treatment, the use of force to affect others,]particularly when habitual and involving an imbalance of power. It may involve verbalharassment, physical assault and may be directed persistently towards particular victims, perhaps on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability. The "imbalance of power" may besocial power and physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a "target."
Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse – emotional, verbal, and physical. Ittypically involves subtle methods such as intimidation. Bullying can be defined in many different ways. The UK currently has no legal definition of bullying, while some U.S. States have laws againstit.
Bullying ranges from simple one-on-one bullying to more complex bullying in which the bully may have one or more 'lieutenants' who may seem to be willing to assist the primary bully inhis bullying activities. Bullying in school and the workplace is also referred to as peer abuse Robert w. Fuller has analyzed bullying in the context of rankism.
Bullying can occur in anycontext in which human beings interact with each other. This includes school, church, family, the workplace, home, and neighborhoods. It is even a common push factor in migration. Bullying canexist between social groups, social classes, and even between countries (see jingoism).
I believe that bullying should be rooted as it is an attack on our individuality and physical andemotional , is a violation of our human rights of living in an environment of peace and harmony an to respect and any conduct that violates these principles must be prevented and punished.
