Teasing is a word with several meanings.
The most common kind of teasing is verbal taunting, mocking, ridiculing or making fun of somebody. In mild cases, and especially when it is reciprocal, teasing can be viewed as playful and friendly. However, teasing is often unwelcome and then it takes the form of harassment. In extreme cases, teasing may escalate to actual violence and may take the form of bullying and abuse.
Children are commonly teased (and commonly tease other children) on such matters as their intelligence, knowledge, appearance, weight, behavior, abilities, and clothing. This kind of teasing is often hurtful, even when the teaser believes he or she is being playful. Children who are caught teasing others are therefore often reproved and/or punished for hurting their victim's feelings.
