Bullying, in contrast, is repeated aggression by peers (such as verbal taunts, physical attacks, or social exclusion) carried out at least once a week.

Peer bullying; Children and adolescents in the same age group are in physical, verbal and behavioral damaging behavior against each other or against a single person.
Bullying, a subspecies of aggression, is a type of aggression in which one or more learners are unable to protect themselves from the victim, resulting in deliberate and constant disturbance of students who are less powerful than themselves. Research conducted over the past 30 years reveals that bullying is a major threat to the healthy development of children and that they reach serious dimensions in schools. The psychological and sociological effects of bullying on children are not only limited to school years but also continue in the later stages of life, and the risk of adulthood is high. Bullying affects both bullies and victims. Students who come to the barbarian; Feelings of anxiety, anger and helplessness, depression, a drop in school love and academic achievement, enuresis, feeling unworthy and unhappy, exclusion and loneliness. Types of bullying are handled in five categories. These; Physical bullying, verbal bullying, exclusion-loneliness, rumor spreading and harming the individual's goods and property.
Surveys show that schools that are reported to be more violent by students are much lower than those in better schools.
Failure to take such trainings causes adults to view certain behaviors as bullying and often to apply traditional disciplinary punishments to bullying. And it all serves to make bullfight spread.
