Knowing the Difference between Being Mean, Conflict, and Bullying

Acting Mean

This can be how a person feels on a particular day, not an everyday thing. These feelings usually are not targeted at specific individuals, but feelings can be hurt in the process.


Conflict

This happens when individuals have a disagreement with others. this can be over something they have done or said, and both sides play an equal role.

  • Can be remorseful
  • Happens occasionally
  • Equal emotional reaction
  • Not seeking power or attention
  • Effort made to solve the problem

Bullying

This is unfair and one-sided. It happens when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out on purpose.

  • Repeated hurtful actions
  • Seeking power and control
  • Trying to gain material items
  • No remorse - blames others
  • No effort to solve the problem
  • Imbalance of power - not friends
