Bullying can happen at home, at school, online (cyber bullying), etc. Bullying is basically the process in which one (or more) individuals antagonizes another individual or group of people for attention, or in an attempt to rid them of a self conscience feeling.

Bullying happens in school but it also happens in neighborhoods, workplaces, and even can happen in churches or other places. Bullying is something to be aware of and can happen to children as well as adults.

Bullying does not only happen in school. Bullying can happen at any moment, in any age group, and in any place. It isn't secluded to young adults in a school setting. Different types of bullying can be verbal, physical, or even cyber. Bullying is something that cannot be ignored because it can happen literally anywhere to anyone.

Bullying happens everywhere. In school, work, bullying can even happen at home. It has happened that way for me also. It's mainly known to take place at a school. There are other types of bullying. An example of another type of bullying would be Cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is when someone bullies you, but they don't do it verbally or physically. They do it online or in text messages. Pretty much anything that is electronic. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, chat, and websites such as Facebook.

There are definitely more types of bullying, the most common one is cyber-bullying, this happens on the internet and sometimes it can be worse than direct bullying, but it mostly depends on the situation. There is also bullying between family members, outside bullying, they can all be very bad and equally as effective to the individual.

Bullying can happen anywhere, at any time. Including online. It can involve anyone, or any group, regardless of similarity or differences. Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. Bullying is often repeated or habitual. Bullies can attack by abusing any form of human communication. It's universal.

No, it doesn't only happen in school. There's cyber-bullying, which can be people talking about you online or something like that (which is bullying, even to adults). Some people might even call abuse "bullying". Both physical and emotional. So yes, there are other types, but all those types can be prevented through asking for help.

there are other form too. people do not just get bullied in school, you can get bullied at work, at home. pretty much everywhere where you interact with other people i suppose. although in school is probably the most common one, because there are a lot of people, especially young people, on clsoe space. and often younger people do not know what is appropriate and what is not. they also often think things are funny, when they clearly are not funny.

No, bullying doesn't only happen in school. There are also other types of bullying. There is workplace bullying too, where bullies can be either bosses, co workers and even subordinate co workers can bully their boss. At school there can be a type of bullying where students bully students or where students bully their teacher or professor. Also teachers or professors can sometimes bully the students (sometimes they give better grades to someone who like and worse grades to someone who dislike - it is considered bullying). Even in families there can be bullying where there can be bullying among siblings or in relationship parent - child. There are also many other types of bullying.
