- Young people fear

rejection. They crave

acceptance and will do just

about anything to get it.


Terrorizing is the use of fear to torment and manipulate.

  • Students who endorse negative activities like cutting class.

  • We don’t have to all dress the same or act the same.
  • We try to solve problems peacefully.
  • We treat each other the way we want to be treated.
