Bullying is when someone deliberately hurts, harasses or intimidates someone else. Unfortunately bullying is a common experience for children and young people. It can take many forms including being called names, being hit or physically hurt, being ignored or having things stolen. Your child may find it difficult to tell you what is going on.
Childline have produced a leaflet for parents about what to do if your child is being bullied.
