Definition- What is bullying? Types of bullying Effects Of Cyberbullying Bullying Alex-do you wanna hang
out today? Direct and Indirect Cyberbullying By: Kaitlyn Spina and Melissa Harris In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include -An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access
to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances
can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people. -Repetition: Bullying happens more than once Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among children in elementary school, high school, even college and some adults. It involves a real or perceived power imbalance.
The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems. Did you know that bullying isn't just someone punching you in the face or a peer calling you a name that you don't like? Bullying isn't just violence or verbal abuse, its a lot more than meets thee eye. There are 4 main types of bullying. Cyberbullying- Cyberbullying is done by sending messages, pictures, or information using electronic media, computers (email &instant messages), or cell phones (text messaging & voicemail). It is using the internet or text messaging or any other technical device to intimidate, put-down, spread rumours or make fun of someone. * Verbal bullying- Verbal bullying is name calling, sarcasm, teasing, spreading rumours, threatening, making negative comments on someones culture, race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation/unwanted sexual comments.It can also include a bully making verbal threats of violence or aggression against someone's personal property. * Physical bullying- Physical bullying Includes any physical contact that would hurt or injure a person like hitting, kicking, punching, etc. Even unwanted sexual harassment. Taking or damaging someone else’s belongings may also count as physical bullying. Social Bullying -Excluding others from a group, humiliating others with public gestures to put them down . Verbal negativity directed to ones self with the intent on making the victim self conscious, embarrassed, or feel any negativity towards themselves. * Cyberbullying A long time ago, cyberbullying was not such a problem because they didn't have the technology that we have now. As the years increase the world comes up with more and more new technology. Cyberbullying can be expressed in many different ways such as telephones(home phones), cellphones(bluetooth), ipods, tablets, computers(computer sites),Video games, and many more. Cyberbullying can effect anyone at any time. My older sister was bullied growing up. She had virtually no friends up until high school and used to get in the car after school and cry nearly every day. It was beyond painful for me to see her deal with that and I would never wish it on anyone.

I went to the same school my sister did and my best friend, Bekah, and I decided that we were going to eliminate bullying in our grade. We started by finding the kids in our class that were tortured the most by our classmates and ate with them every lunch.

Then we started to partner with them on projects, talk to them outside of class, and hang out with them after school. Some upper classmates saw what we were doing and joined in with us.

Together we formed The Table, a group made up of a mix of the most popular and most bullied kids from 7th grade to Seniors. The people I met by forming this group are some of the best people I have ever met and are all still my friends today.

The youngest of the original group all graduated last year, but my sister, Bekah, and I passed on the legacy to our younger brother and to this day bullying in our school has all but disappeared. I want to encourage everyone that it can be done.

We can stop bullying in schools. Take a stand, and never give up. You are more brave than you give yourself credit for. Taking a stand A life story ~Rachele~ Sarah-NO! why would I
wanna hang out with you?
your fat, ugly, and worthless
nobody likes you! Alex-...oh:(
Sarah-I think you would be
better if you killed yourself ur
gonna get nowhere in life. There are lots of ways the bully can effect the victim by making them feel bad or act in a negative emotional way. Some ways the victim can feel or act are:
-Angry -embarrassed
-increased thoughts on suicide
-afraid - stress this may lead to depression(anxiety)
-miss, skip or drop out of school
-health problems
- The victim could get into drugs and alcohol.
-cant sleep or decrease the amount of food they eat. "Direct" cyberbullying is using text, email, or IM to communicate directly with the victim , and "indirect" cyberbullying, which includes using sites like MySpace and Facebook to post negative information about the victim. The difference between direct and indirect is that the bullying is illustrated by the fact that "direct cyberbullying" is the intent of the bully to cause direct harm to the victim.It is easier because the harassing communications were sent directly to the victim. As with indirect
it is hard to show the information that was intended to cause some sort of harm. How to stand up to Cyberbullying There are many ways you can stand up to cyberbullying.

STOP/TALK-It might be tempting to respond to the text, post, or email but it’s better not to. Take a breath and count to ten. If you do want to respond, the best thing to do is to say STOP. The best way to get through the awful feelings that cyberbullying can cause, is to talk to someone about what you are going through. Talking is also the first step in getting the help you need to solve this problem.
SAVE-If it’s a text or email, don’t delete it. If it’s a post on Facebook or another social networking site, take a screen shot. Having a record can help you prove what happened.
BLOCK-Block the sender from your inbox. Move the message to your Junk folder. If you don’t know how to block a sender from your phone, contact the service provider (your cell phone company).
TELL-It’s important to tell someone you trust about what’s happening, especially if it continues. If you are being threatened, you should contact the police.

- A way to stand up to cyberbullying or any other type of bullying is to get help. You could ask a peer or a family member to ask for help. You can also call kids help phone. The number is simple and easy to remember.
