Different Types of Bullying
Talk to the bullying child if it feels safe. Look him or her in the eye and say strongly but calmly, "Leave me alone" or "You don't scare me”. • Walk Awayfrom the bullying child or children. Children who are being bullied should not run (even though they may want to). It may strengthen a feeling of power in the bullying child. • Tell An Adult about the episode. It might help for children to identify an adult at school to tell if incidents occur. Children who see another child being harmed also should seek help from an adult right away. What To Do if a Person is Being Bullied
My conclusion is that people have a big say in bullying. Most people choose to be a bystander, but those who are up standers are the ones making the difference. If we could just get everyone to be a up stander, then we might have a shot at stopping bullying. My Conclusion
