Many children experience bullying, or show bullying behaviour to others. While it is a common behaviour, it’s not something you should ignore or accept as a normal part of life. 

Perhaps you’ve heard these messages about bullying: 

  • “Everyone gets bullied at some point. It’s just a part of growing up.”
  • “You should ignore it and they’ll soon get bored.”
  • “It makes a man of you.”
  • “It never did me any harm.”
  • “You need to stand up for yourself.”
  • “It’s just banter/ teasing.” 

For a long time, bullying was dismissed as a natural stage of childhood, but it can have a significant impact on children’s health and wellbeing and should always be taken seriously.
