Speak Up To Stop Bullying

This week in class, we discussed what to do if you are being bullied, or if you see it happening to someone else. One of the most important things that you can do is to talk to a trusted adult about it. Tell your teacher, your parents, even your guidance counselor and principal. Bullies are usually sneaky and if adults don’t know there’s a problem, they can’t help fix it!

A few other tips are:

  1. Be confident. Make eye contact and speak firmly, telling the bully to back off, while keeping a safe distance.
  2. Play/ hang-out near a teacher if you suspect trouble.
  3. Try to stay in a group. there’s strength in numbers, and a bully is less likely to confront you if you’re surrounded by friends.

Well, that’s it for now. Stay tuned for our next lesson, and be safe!
