It depends on the person on the receiving end partly. One person may consider it teasing or just joking while the person getting teased considers it harassment. When hurt feelings are involved with teasing it is certainly bully behavior. A person who I would define as having bully behaviors is someone who systematically singles out an individual or group to make fun of, humiliate, spread lies about, physically or sexually abuse. This is certainly by no means covers all definitions of bullying. But bottom line if a child perceives that my child has picked on him or her more than once in a hurtful manor then I know that my child has an issue with being a bully and I will deal with it swiftly and seriously. I don't put up with that crap line, "Kids will be kids" or worse, "You know boys will be boys."
