Indiana anti-bullying laws include the following definitions of bullying:

“Bullying” means overt, unwanted, repeated acts or gestures, including verbal or written communications or images transmitted in any manner (including digitally or electronically), physical acts committed, aggression, or any other behaviors, that are committed by a student or group of students against another student with the intent to harass, ridicule, humiliate, intimidate, or harm the targeted student and create for the targeted student an objectively hostile school environment that:

    (1) places the targeted student in reasonable fear of harm to the targeted student’s person or property;

    (2) has a substantially detrimental effect on the targeted student’s physical or mental health;

    (3) has the effect of substantially interfering with the targeted student’s academic performance; or

    (4) has the effect of substantially interfering with the targeted student’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, and privileges provided by the school.

Burns Ind. Code Ann. § 20-33-8-0.2 (2013)

When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time. 

Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.
