Understanding Playful vs. Hurtful Teasing and Bullying Behavior
This pamphlet is designed to help parents and students navigate the unclear roadways of behaviors that
can be seen as hurtful teasing or bullying behavior. It is broken down into sections that will help the reader
understand various aspects of behaviors that can be seen as inappropriate. Additionally, we have thought
provoking questions throughout the pamphlet to help start a dialogue between you and your son or daughter.
When training students and staff in the area of harassment and bullying behavior, we broaden the definition
according to the research based programs we use. However, some of this language does not reflect Georgia state
law and our CCSD policy. Please know we take all alleged harassment and bullying reports seriously.
