Sooner or later, most teens will have a conflict at school with a bully. Someone who teases, calls people names, hits, pushes, shoves, or steals from others is a bully. There are some things you should know about bullies and bullying.

  • Most bullies lack self esteem
  • A bully usually chooses a victim that is shy or stands out in a crowd
  • Boy bullies often use physical threats
  • Girl bullies often use verbal put-downs
  • One out of 4 people who bully others by age 8 have a criminal record by 30

Bullying occurs more frequently among boys than girls. Teenage boys are much more likely to bully others and to be the targets of bullies. While both boys and girls say others bully them by making fun of the way they look or talk, boys are more likely to report being hit, slapped, or pushed. Teenage girls are more often the targets of rumors and sexual comments.

How does bullying affect teens who are the targets of bullies?

Bullying can lead teenagers to feel tense, anxious, and afraid. It can affect their concentration in school, and can lead them to avoid school in some cases. If bullying continues for some time, it can begin to affect teens' self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. It also can increase their social isolation, leading them to become withdrawn and depressed, anxious and insecure. In extreme cases, bullying can be devastating for teens, with long-term consequences. Some teens feel compelled to take drastic measures, such as carrying weapons for protection or seeking violent revenge.

If you ever feel like your being bullied, you need to seek out help from others that can help you.
