1. Physical bullying encompasses kicking, punching, shoving someone into a locker, and so on.
2. Verbal bullying is all about name-calling and taunting.
3. Next comes social/relational bullying, as in the MEAN GIRLS type of torture. A
person gets abused not by another person but by an entire peer group. It is often a pack of girls or women, or bully-princesses. The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander.
4. The fourth and newest category of bullying is cyber-bullying, which takes verbal
bullying and social bullying to almost unimaginable extremes. Taunts and rumors, unflattering photos, and compromising videos can be posted on the web anonymously and circulated endlessly, wiht shattering results.
