    The incident you witnessed was mean and unacceptable behavior, and needed to be dealt with, but by definition it was not bullying. To be called bullying - that's when the agressive action is repeated against the same victim. Ideally, your quick action prevented a repetition of the same behavior before it actually became bullying. Interesting that statistics show an increase in the incidents of girls bullying, and it is much more often girls than boys who participate in verbal bulllying, put downs, insults, etc.
