Welcome to today's chat on bullying. Did you know that bullying can take lots of different forms including physical assaults, name calling and threats or cyber bullying.

Do you know what to do if someone is bullying you?

If you are being bullied the best thing to do is talk to someone. It is always a good idea to tell your parents and a teacher if the bullying is happening at school. They can then help you and make sure that the bullying is stopped.

Cyber bullying is any form of bullying which takes place online or through smartphones and tablets.

Bullying UK identified that in a survey 56% of young people said they have seen others be bullied online and 42% have felt unsafe online. Cyber bullying can happen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and it can go viral very fast.

It is important to tell an adult if you are experiencing any kind of bullying

You can help someone being bullied by helping them to talk to someone about the bullying. You could let them join your group if they are being left out.

How else could you help someone who is being bullied?
