Girls usually tend to share hurtful information about other girls about the victim. Girls may create names, gossip, send harassing messages. These are called " relational" bullying due to they attack relationships and friendships. On the other hand boys bully other guys due to they have learn it from home from siblings or parents. Guys generally want to feel more dominant and powerful than the other guy. This is done by exclusion, verbal assaults, online attacks and scare tactics.
Families can have a negative and positive affect to bullying. The positive effect is helping and supporting their children through the tough times and comforting them in anyway possible.

Family Wealth
Some bullies target those who are wealthy and to a bully a wealthy person looks stronger. This is why bullies dominant those who are more privileged and have more due to the bullies might not have what the rich have. By doing so the bully becomes selfish and very jealous of someone else wealth.
Community Population
The more people in the community the less bullying goes on due to more people declines bullying due to the number of people. The less people you have in a community leads to bullying due to the small number of people in a confined area such as a rural area. Other places such as the cities there are more people and more teenagers which there is not alot of bullying that happens.
Community wealth
Where you live and what neighbourhood you live in can impact you as you can become a victim for bullies. Bullies usually call wealthier people "snobs" and wealthier teenagers get dominated and be deprived due to their families wealth. The street and neighbourhood you live in can get criticized due to the upper class society which leads to severe bullying.
Starting from the beginning
By starting from the beginning we need to acknowledge our friends and family who are dealing with bullying, start sharing the grief and understand what they are going through, listen to them, give them advice/ seek professional help. Guide them and support them through their right decisions and give them positive motivation.
Increasing the matter
Increasing the matter includes handing out pamphlets or posters around Lennox or Ballina advertising the dangers and seriousness of bullying that affects a large portion of the teenage youth. These posters and pamphlets reflect the experiences and outcomes that bullying can do to a child and this awareness makes people more encouraging to help those who are faced with bullies everyday.
Fund-raising for the awareness of bullying at schools, local sporting events such as money collections or raising money, carnivals, contests, barbeques and raffling can all help to raise money to those people who are suffering from bullying and need help. Donating the money to local bullying centres and notify them that their are people in this community doing something about bullying and we are here to help is very supportive to those in your community. The money will go to those who are getting bullied and need professional help.
Bigger Expansion
Bigger expansion means advertising bulling at local sporting events, putting the awareness on local music channels such as Triple J. This will begin to acknowledge those people nationally that bullying is a big deal and we need to help those who are getting bullied and guide them through it with support from the local area, state and national level.
