Dealing with social bullying

Updated: Nov 24, 2020

What is social bullying?

Social bullying is the persistent harassment of someone spreading rumours and made-up stories to humiliate a person and ruin that person's reputation. This is done behind the person's back.


How can a young person deal with social bullying?

The young person should:

  • Tell someone what has been happening - this could be a parent/guardian, a friend, a teacher in school.

  • Have good friends who will stand up for the person or sensitively tell the person if they hear any of the rumours.

  • Consider talking to someone at an organisation that can give advice and help with the bullying experience such as:

- Bully Busters

- ChildLine

- Kidpower

- Lifeline

- Samaritans
