If someone is causing physical, mental or emotional harm constantly to you, then it could be considered harassment.
Martha Graham is a mom that speaks with experience, she says her son was harassed so much at school by teammates he quit playing sports.
"He finally admitted to us that he was being harassed," said Graham. "In his case, it was same sex sexual harassment. He was being called all sort of names he did not like."
Terry Case is a teacher at Keister Elementary School in Harrisonburg, she says children should be taught early about what harassment is and how to deal with it.
Harassment can be define as bullying, teasing and unwanted sexual comments or touches. And to find out if you are doing these things, Cary says you need to ask yourself.
"Am I acting like a bully," said Cary, "talking about others, destroying others property, am I respecting others privacy and am I using words or actions to hurt someone else."
