What is bullying? Is there a definition?

Bullying is behavior that is:
Imbalance of power – real or perceived
Repeated, or potential to be repeated, over time.

It is rare that a one-time event or episode will constitute bullying. 
Parents should report to the school authorities/administration every instance of their child being bullied, and the reporting should be via e-mail.  If parents merely tell someone at the school or phone it in, there is no record.
