A common myth is that all bullies are boys. This is not true. Both girls and boys are bullies, but boys are more likely to admit to being one and are also easier to spot and identify because of the tactics they generally use.
The common stereotype of a bully is physically large, low achieving and insecure is also not true. Bullies are not typically children who are failing academically. They are usually not the top students in the class, but they are likely to be average to just slightly below average in their achievements. Nor are they insecure and friendless. Bullies have friends, especially other children who empower them and are empowered by their association with the bully.
