Relational aggression, Aquino said, uses relationships to control or hurt others. This includes talking behind a person's back, spreading rumors, etc. Cyberbullying is in the use of social media, instant messaging apps, and any information technology. Sexual bullying, Aquino said, involves humiliating words that target a person sexually, making vulgar gestures, uninvited touching, name-calling, and the likes.

How can parents identify if their kids are being bullied? If they say a lot of "drama" at school or if they say that others are "messing" with them. Take note of what happened and how they felt. Assure the kids that they did not cause the bullying, and give them tips on how to overcome the experience.
If you notice that some of them are vanishing or the kids are no longer inviting them to your house, that can be a sign that the kid is being bullied.

Students and teachers crossing the line | The LaSallian
Most of us get into the business of helping partly to satisfy our own narcissistic needs. We need to be needed, and that sometimes makes it hard to let go of our charges. We may be experiencing difficulties in our own personal relationships, and it becomes tempting to reach out to a student who, at the very least, respects who we are and what we do.
Even if we do not take such an initiative, we may find it harder to resist the initiative made by a needy or seductive student who hopes that we can fill personal needs that transcend our role as mentors.
Finally, there is a set of risk factors that are inherent in the professional or institutional setting itself. For example, a faculty member experiencing little collegial support from other faculty members, may depend excessively on the loyalty, sympathy and support of a devoted student. We need to be honest with ourselves about whose needs we are meeting, when we invite a student to work with us, when we decide which students we may involve in a special project or in a social engagement, or to whom we tend to disclose certain kinds of personal information.
We may sometimes need to see if there are other ways for us to get certain of our own needs met, whether at home, in therapy, or through our colleagues.

We also need to treat the challenge of maintaining appropriate student-teacher boundaries as an open issue. This should be done both in the orientation of new faculty members and as a part of the training and supervision of our students.

The maintenance of healthy boundaries is not only something that teachers need to do in their own relationships with students. We need also to prepare our students to monitor boundaries with their own students, patients, and clients. We can help them develop this awareness by exploring this issue as a part of their training and by modeling appropriate professional behavior in our own relationships with them. Finally, we can help develop institutional guidelines and policies that reflect a commitment to the maintenance of appropriate student-teacher boundaries.

New York, Alfred A Knopf, Institutional resources for medical students in committed relationships. The characteristics of a helping relationship. If the student makes the first move, is it okay?
But once the student is no longer under the scholastic supervision or any influence due to the teacher's position, then it is okay.
As long as it will not affect their respective roles it should be acceptable. However, whenever they are in that situation, be cautious and decent. It could be justifiable when both remain discreet. We cannot fault human emotions. Let the student graduate then start off formally with the relationship if the teacher loves the student. This is for the benefit of the student to be spared from campus gossip and for the sake of the teacher as well.
An existence of a vertical relationship is always a relationship that is prejudiced by its inherent nature. Lovers are typified by parallel relationship i. The involved are equal. The presence of a former superior-subordinate by virtue of teacher-student is one that is not only frowned upon but inherently an issue of power.
It does not matter who made the first move because the power relationship is unaffected regardless of who made the first move. By its inherent nature, it is flawed.
A teacher should always be professional.
