Bullying is defined as an occurring incident when someone or a group repeatedly and purposely say or do hurtful things to someone. •Bullying and bully victimization are associated with depression, low self-esteem, and suicide ideation. •Students who are both victim and bully demonstrate more external behavioral problems. •Left unchecked, bullying attitudes and behaviors become more serious and difficult to prevent and may be carried into adulthood. •Youth who bully or victims of bullying tend to lack appropriate social skills. •Students who provoke negative interactions with their peers are often perceived as social outcasts and are more socially avoidant compared to other students.
