Although there still is no legal definition of bullying, mental health professionals describe it as physical or verbal abuse, repeated over time and one that involves some sort of a power imbalance. There exists no specific context of actions, abuse, comments, or slurs that amounts to verbal bullying. Therefore, any aggressive behavior or verbal abuse can be called bullying. Society no longer tolerates many aggressive attitudes acceptable in previous times. This is because of the devastating effects of bullying and abuse which children suffer at school now being realized by medical professionals and parents alike.

Bullying and the role of schools

 Bullying occurs mainly in schools. It has now become a menace, and school authorities must strictly deal with it. Even minute actions from overpowered pupils at schools can leave long-term impacts on the bullied children. They will be left emotionally scarred and unable to grow mentally at an average pace. Many teenagers, victims of bullying, may even attempt to harm themselves. There are frequent reports of suicide attempts and resulting deaths where their peers bully children at school. The pressure and stress start to develop when the bullied victims are mocked, jeered at, insulted, or isolated. This can further take the form of online bullying too by the same peers. An unwanted behavior in a pupil that causes unease or discomfort amongst his peers must be taken notice of and must not go unattended. Schools across the world are now spreading awareness about bullying amongst their students. 

Ultimately, to save the children, safe and confidential reporting of bullies and a no-tolerance policy towards all bullying acts must occur.

Imposing liability upon the schools

On the one hand, where most states still lack clear-cut legislation criminalizing bullying, there have been no significant efforts obligating schools to counter instances of bullying on the other. Despite the absence of explicit laws, you can bring a school to account for any harms sustained by the disadvantaged children. 

Parents have a legal right to sue the school for grievous negligence where the child suffers any damage, as long as they can prove it through evidence. Claims against the schools find their basis in the premises liability laws. By law, owners or occupiers of premises are responsible for ensuring the safety and protection of those present in their premises against all harms. Schools further have an additional responsibility to observe the well-being of the children.

Parents whose children suffer (or have suffered) an injury or have attempted suicide or have died can bring in legal claims against the school in most severe cases. They can sue for damages and compensation covering medical costs, mental agony, emotional pain, etc.
