Take Action Today: Preventing Bullying from the Very Beginning

Sesame Street has always been there to provide concrete information to children and the caregivers in their lives. This includes the topic of bullying behaviors in preschool-aged children.   Statistics have shown that many children will encounter bullying as they grow up - as one who bullies, one who is bullied, or as an observer. Bullying can look different, among different age groups. For children under the age of five, bullying can take the form of physical aggression (hitting, pushing, taking something), relational behaviors (exclusion) and verbal aggression (talk of hitting or pushing).

 


What Is Cyber Bullying?

Cyberbullying is when someone uses technology to send mean, threatening, or embarrassing messages to or about another person. It might be in a text, e-mail, message, or in a post online. Cyberbullying can be anonymous, which can sometimes make it even worse. It also has a wider audience, and can spread quickly. Finally, targets of cyberbullying often feel like they can’t get away from the bullying.
