Bullying is any type of repeated, aggressive behavior that one person (or a group of people) directs at someone else with the goal of causing physical or emotional pain. Bullying behaviors are also purposeful. Accidents happen and they may result in physical harm; however, bullying is not accidental or unintentional. Bullying (or the threat of being bullied) is a repeated behavior; although hurtful, a one-time incident is not considered bullying.
