Many kids get bullied in school, over the internet, or even on the streets. Name calling can be one of the things bullies do. Bullies also can say hurtful things or try to make the kid a joke in front of all there kids. Bullying needs to be stopped. Bullying can cause many problems. Kids can get emotionally hurt or even physically hurt. I have been a victim of cyber bullying. It can cause people to hurt themselves or even worse. Some people ended up killing themselves from it. People need to work on stopping bullying.

This is any bully that is done with the intent to hurt somebody's reputation or social standing. Social bullying often happens between friends. It can happen in two ways: either by trying to exclude somebody and make them feel unwanted, or by gaining somebody's trust and then breaking it. Social bullying could include spreading a friend's secret all over school to damage their reputation, or encouraging others to ignore, chastise, or threaten a friend. The movie Mean Girls (2004) shows many examples of this kind of bullying. This type of bullying is most common among girls, but can certainly happen with guys as well. In social bullying, the main weapons the bully uses are relationships.
