Each and every single type of bullying is harmful to the one being bullied, and in many cases can lead to suicide. Let’s take a better look at some of these. Physical bullying can be anything from a slight push to a devastating and potentially fatal strike to the head. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s all physical. Physical bullying can also include the bully along with other friends, cornering you up against a wall, or maybe vandalizing your belongings, or even making threatening gestures. All of these are still attributes of Physical bullying whether direct physical contact is involved or not. This type of bullying is most likely the most known form and has been around for the longest. It can also be stated that this is the most harmful form of bullying there is. This form of bullying is a lot of times displayed in films and television as well. If your son or daughter is coming home from school with bruises or damage to his or her property, then this can be a BIG indicator of Physical bullying. Males are also more likely to commit an act of physical bullying than females are. Physical bullying is a very common type of bullying but Emotional bullying is probably the second biggest form of bullying there is, and nowadays, it is often related or performed through Cyberbullying. The real difference between the two is that Emotional bullying is more verbal and Cyberbullying is done through electronic devices or the internet. Though they are different, both are equally as bad and damaging to the community.
