Bullying and Cyber Bullying

Alvaro Bueno

Bullying:

Is the use of force, threat, to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power, which distinguishes bullying from conflict

Cyber bullying:
