Why do People Bully?

Bullying is something people do to have power or control over other people. Some people bully and harass for other reasons, too. For example, some people bully…

  • Because they have been bullied, so they think this behavior is ok or “normal”
  • Because they think it is funny
  • Because they think other people deserve it
  • Because they think it will make them popular
  • Because they think they can get away with it

For some people, bullying is a way for them to feel like they are no longer a victim because they might have been bullied themselves.
