    In this project I will be talking about bullying, the different types, and my own experiences. What is Bullying? Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involve a real or recognized power imbalances. The six types of bullying are physical bullying, verbal bullying, relational bullying, cyberbullying, sexual bullying, and prejudicial bullying. Physical Bullying is when kids use physical actions to gain power and control over their targets. Verbal Bullying is when perpetrators of verbal bullying use words, statements and name-calling to gain power and control over a target. Relational Bullying is ostracize others from a group, spread rumors, manipulate situations and break confidences. Cyber Bullying is when a tween or a teen uses the Internet, a cell phone or other technology to harass, threaten, embarrass or target another person. Sexual Bullying is consists of repeated, harmful and humiliating actions that target a person sexually. Prejudicial Bullying is based on prejudices tweens and teens have toward people of different races, religions or sexual orientation.
