Bullying VS Teasing

One of our Grade 5 teachers, Mrs. Karen Tufano, presented a workshop entitled Bullying VS Teasing to explain the difference.  She shared the 4 Ps formula to determine whether a situation is bullying or teasing.   

Pain - Did it cause pain to someone?
Power - Is there an older person using involved?
Persistent - Is it something that happened the first time or has it continued a few times?
Permission - Was permission given for the actions?

Our parents were very pleased with the information she shared.
