Who Gets Bullied?

First, know that bullying shouldn’t happen to ANYONE.

  • There is no one “type” of person who becomes the target of bullying. Bullying can be directed at anyone, from the shy, quiet student to the class tough guy. Girls, boys, first graders, fifth graders, kids who like art, kids who play sports, and everyone in between can all be the target of bullying.
  • Bullying is about how we treat one another.
  • Bullying is never justified and no one deserves to be the target of it.
  • But just because a lot of kids experience bullying doesn’t mean it’s okay or “something that just happens”.
  • The one sure thing is that no one EVER deserves to be bullied.

The most important thing to remember is that bullying is NEVER okay, no one EVER deserves to be bullied.
