About Bullies:

The four types of abuse a bully uses are emotional, physical, verbal, and Internet (cyber).

More than 10 percent of all school-age children between the ages of 5 and 18 have been bullied on more than one occasion.

People, groups, or entities often bully because they are not happy or are insecure with themselves, and they want others to feel the same way.

A bully will use any means possible to target another person.

Bullies will often select their victims based on the community a person lives in or is from, education, gender, financial status, mental health, physical appearance, race, religion, and sexual orientation.

There are several ways to protect against bullying.
