Bullying is unprovoked, repeated and aggressive actions or threats of action by one person or a group who have (or are perceived to have) more power or status than their victim in order to cause fear, distress or harm. Bullying is not a childhood rite of passage. Research shows that on any given school day, approximately 160,000 children decide to skip school to avoid being picked on or bullied by their peers.
