A complex form of aggression in which a bully routinely aggresses against one or more habitual victims.
HGD, Chapter 10 p. 259


Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that
involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has
the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as
making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and
excluding someone from a group on purpose.

There are many roles that kids can play. Kids can bully others, they can be bullied, or they may witness bullying. When kids are involved in bullying, they often play more than one role. It is important to understand the multiple roles kids play in order to effectively prevent and respond to bullying.

Bullies are typically lonely because most people try to stay away from them. Some are filled with anger and distress and they need make someone feel as much hurt as they do. "Research has shown that many children who bully, are bullied at home either by siblings or one or both parents."
