WHAT IS BULLYING?
Bullying is a widespread and serious problem that can happen anywhere. It is not a phase children have to go through, it is not "just messing around", and it is not something to grow out of. Bullying can cause serious and lasting harm.
Although definitions of bullying vary, most agree that bullying involves:
Imbalance of Power: people who bully use their power to control or harm and the people being bullied may have a hard time defending themselves
Intent to Cause Harm: actions done by accident are not bullying; the person bullying has a goal to cause harm
Repetition: incidents of bullying happen to the same the person over and over by the same person or group

“Sexting” is generally defined as “the sending or receiving of sexually explicit or sexually suggestive images or video via a cell phone.” In Texas, the definition is much broader. Sexting includes any possession and/or electronic transmission by a minor (age 17 and under) of visual material capturing a minor engaged in sexual conduct which includes still photographs of private body parts.
