One of them is done with intentions to hurt<br />
Harmless teasing shouldn't have unwilling victims
Teasing is often the same as kidding. Though not meant to, teasing/kidding sometimes causes hurt feelings. But it is a mistakenly caused hurt. Bullying is meant to cause harm and fear, right from the beginning. Make no mistake about it.
Teasing happens all the time between people. It becomes bullying when there is an imbalance of power. The victim does not have the social skills to verbally retaliate, or the physical strength to defend himself....you're welcome...
teasing and bullying is the same thing teasing is only different if it ur friend who messing with u i personally hate bullies their nothing but an mean soul and i whouldnt care how tough or big they are if they bully me or my friends or anyone else then they will have me to deal with i may be a small slim girl but like my old saying im small but deadly
One talks sh!t and the other gets busy.
I think they both are abusive. A loving or friendly tease is one thing but relentless teasing is cruel and abusive. Bullying is extreme mental, physical and psychological abuse. Not much difference in my opinion
degree, more than anything. The others have said it, mostly. I'd only add that if the teaser's _intention_ is not to be cruel, but the teased person experiences it that way. the effect is the same. So it's critical when teasing someone that they know you like them and have good intentions toward them.
When the teasing or kidding becomes uninvited, yet persists and the reciepient can do nothing to stop it. Ofcourse, it can get a lot worse than that!
Bullying is physical mental and/or verbal abuse. Its when an individual or a group attack another who is usually viewed as weak or timid. Teasing is a little more harmless, where the group picks on each other, not just one individual that they constantly degrade & exclude.
