A family lives next to the man. The man makes their lives bad. He does bad things to them. He says very bad things to them. He screams at them and puts dog poop on their house. The man does this for 15 years.
Now, the man is punished. He must do a few things. He goes to prison for 15 days. Then he must clean the streets for 100 hours. Then he must have a special sign. He must hold the sign on a street. Everybody can see the sign. The sign says, “I am a bully”.
Difficult words: bully (somebody who hurts other people), poop (dogs put it on the grass, people put it in the toilet), punish (the man must do something because he did bad things).
