BULLYING IS NEVER OK.
DIRECT BULLYING is where you are confronted face-to-face with a bully. They may hurt you physically by pinching, punching or pushing, or they may call you insulting names.
INDIRECT BULLYING is where bullying is unseen but it can be just as hurtful. The bully hasn't the courage to confront you face-to-face - it could be by spreading rumours, lies, racial remarks or even graffiti
CYBERBULLYING is using modern communication technology like chat, text messages, email or social networking sites.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO STOP BULLYINGYoung people are the most vulnerable to bullying and can seek support from your parents, through school and from adults you can trust. You can also get help from the Kids Help Line
You can also get support from the Australian Human Rights Commission. This applies to adults as well.
If you see someone being bullied then they need your support. The Human Rights Commission has a Fact Sheet that will help you support the person being bullied.
