What is bullying? It's more than just a fight or disliking someone.It’s being mean to someone over and over again. Bullying is when someone or a group of people who have more power than you repeatedly use words or actions to hurt you. Bullying can happen anywhere – at home, with friends, online, at school or on the bus.
