Bullying is a serious matter and it should NEVER be ignored. Bullying leads to severe psychological damage, in which victims of bullying come to see themselves as worthless.
The Definition of A Bully
Bullying is a specific type of aggression in which (1) the behavior is intended to harm or disturb, (2) the behavior occurs repeatedly over time, and (3) there is an imbalance of power, with a more powerful person or group attacking a less powerful person or group. There may be psychological or physical differences in power between the bully and the victim.
