Bullying can happen anywhere and at any time. In fact, most people get bullied at some point or another in their life. It’s not just something that happens at school. It can be at home, at work, even somewhere like a football club. You might not even realise you’re being bullied.
Bullying happens when you or others around you behave in an unwanted aggressive way to others. Bullying can happen anywhere: at school, in the community, online, or anywhere. This webpage from The Children’s society contain information about different types of bullying, how to deal with bullying and extra information that might help you if you are being bullied.
