Bullying Myths And Facts Quiz! Trivia - Quiz

Bullying myths and facts quiz trivia! There are a lot of schools that have different rituals with bullying and call it tradition but this causes more harm than good. Most people who partake in bullying use the excuse that it hardens a person up but it in fact causes them emotional damage that is at times irreparable. The quiz below will help see if you have all your facts right when it comes to bullying.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Many times children will pretend to be in on the jokes made at them. This is a way for them to cope, and to still try to fit in. This does NOT mean they enjoy it or it's any less hurtful. This is still bullying.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    There is very little evidence to support this idea. This is what can make a bully so dangerous. Classmates often hold the bully in a positive regard because they appear "tough" or "cool". In addition, most bullies are found to have an inflated, positive, self view!
