The Sheriff’s Department is concerned with bullying among young people here in the Morongo basin. Z107.7 news is running a 4 part series identifying different types of bullying. Here is Sheriff’s Service specialist Anita Baker with part 2, verbal bullying…..
There are several different types of bullying. Some of the various forms of bullying are verbal, social/emotional, physical, and cyberbullying. Most of us have experienced verbal bullying. This happens when someone calls another person names, or otherwise teases them. Kids may tease a child who has red hair or is otherwise perceived to be “different” than everyone else. We need to value and respect each other’s differences.
