What is bullying?
Bullying is any behavior that is:
*Deliberate and hurtful
*Repeated over time
*Characterized by a relationship involving an inequity of power, such as size or popularity.
What is conflict?
Not to be confused with bullying, a conflict is a disagreement between two or more persons of equal power.
99% of what we see on the playground is conflict, which we resolve using a variety of strategies. Conflict usually happens during group games such as soccer, football or handball.
