    Explanation
    Bullying refers to the act of deliberately hurting someone or making them afraid or upset. It involves repeated aggressive behavior, either physical or verbal, that is intended to cause harm to another person.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is C because parents can play a crucial role in supporting their child who is being bullied. They can help their child cope with the situation by providing love and support, which can boost their child's self-esteem and resilience. Additionally, parents can take action by talking to the school or relevant authority about the bullying problem, which can lead to interventions and support for the child.

    Explanation
    Bullies tend to suffer in the long term because they often have poor academic achievement, indicating a lack of success in their education. They also tend to have poor social skills, which can lead to difficulties in forming and maintaining relationships with others. Additionally, their behavior as bullies can negatively impact their adult relationships, as they may struggle to establish healthy and respectful connections with others. Overall, the evidence suggests that bullies do suffer in the long term due to the negative consequences of their actions.
