Girls who bully other girls may use psychological intimidation, social aggression, or verbal aggression. Bullies will repeatedly tease with the deliberate intent to humiliate, embarrass, and hurt someone else.
Many girl bullies tend to be attractive, popular, well-groomed, and good students. These girls spend a great deal of time spreading gossip to help retain their status, often at the expense of newcomers and members of their own group.
Bully girls target outsiders as well as their friends, planning ways to humiliate their victims. They create and spread rumors, make threats, give intimidating looks, and sometimes laugh and point at their victims.
Bullies act physically aggressive, display quick tempers, hurt others emotionally or physically, spread rumors, exclude others, and engage in repeated teasing. Children can learn to stand up to bullies, even as bystanders.
Victims of bullying should know that they are not alone, remain confident, and turn to trusted friends and adults for support. Telling other people, standing up for others, and seeking adult intervention can help stop bullies.
