  • Tell someone you trust, a teacher or adult.*

Bullying bystanders
Bullying Bystanders bullied:

  • Bullying situations usually involve more than the bully and the victim. They also involve bystanders—those who watch bullying happen or hear about it. 

  • An important new strategy for bullying prevention focuses on the powerful role of the bystander. Depending on how bystanders respond, they can either contribute to the problem or the solution. Bystanders rarely play a completely neutral role, although they may think they do.*

Hurtful bystanders
Hurtful Bystanders                          

  • Some bystanders . . . instigate the bullying by prodding the bully to begin.

  • Other bystanders . . . encourage the bullying by laughing, cheering, or making comments that further stimulate the bully. 

  • And other bystanders . . . joinin the bullying once it has begun. 

  • Most bystanders . . . passively accept bullying by watching and doing nothing. Often without realizing it, these bystanders also contribute to the problem. Passive bystanders provide the audience a bully craves and the silent acceptance that allows bullies to continue their hurtful behavior. *

Helpful bystanders
Helpful Bystanders                               

  • Bystanders also have the power to play a key role in preventing or stopping bullying. 

  • Some bystanders . . . directly intervene, by discouraging the bully, defending the victim, or redirecting the situation away from bullying.

  • Other bystanders . . .  get help, by rallying support from peers to stand up against bullying or by reporting the bullying to adults.  *
