people think that if they tell someone about a bully, then the bullying might get worse. This is
not true! We give a bully more power by accepting their
behavior and not doing anything about it. Research has
shown that bullying will stop when adults in authority and
friends get involved!
Bullying is wrong
and when people do things to hurt others, it needs to be talked
about. If you or one of
your friends get bullied then you should tell an adult right
away. Bullying is done to gain power over someone by
hurting them or making them feel bad. It could be calling
someone bad names, making threats, spreading rumors, teasing, excluding
them, or even hurting someone physically by hitting them or
pushing them down.
It is never your
fault when you are being bullied and you never have to face
bullying alone... there are people who can help stop bullying.
