Types of Bullying – Exclusion

The second type of bullying I will highlight here is ‘exclusion’. This form of bullying can be expressed openly in front of others (you can’t sit here) or discreetly (rolling of the eyes). With this type of bullying, the bully often manipulates the group. The group members can be referred to as bystanders. That is, they stand by and do nothing to help the person that is being bullied because they know that if they do intervene, they might be next.  This just builds the social power of the bully. This is a very sad state of affairs and teachers need to be aware of this type of bullying and encourage bystanders to not support this behaviour. It could simply be by encouraging the bystander to just  move away from the group when the bully is using this type of bullying behaviour.

  1. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
