What to Do When You Are Being Bullied?
If you are being bullied, don’t take the abuse:
— Tell them to stop.
— Walk away. Do not let them get to you. If you walk away or ignore them, they will not feel the satisfaction of getting a rise out of you.
— Protect yourself. Sometimes you cannot walk away. If you are being physically hurt, protect yourself so that you can get away.
— Tell an adult you trust. Talking to someone could help you figure out the best ways to deal with the problem. In some cases, adults need to get involved for the bullying to stop.
— Find a safe place. Go somewhere that you feel safe and secure, like the school library, a favorite teacher’s classroom or the office.
— Stick together. Stay with a group or individuals that you trust.
— Find opportunities to make new friends. Explore your interests and join school or community activities such as sports, drama and art. Volunteer or participate in community service.
