Bullying

What do I do if I'm bullied?

How to deal with bullying:

  • Tell your parents or other trusted adults. They can help stop the bullying.
  • If you are bullied at school, tell your teacher, school counselor, or principal. Telling is not tattling.
  • Don’t fight back. Don’t try to bully those who bully you.
  • Try not to show anger or fear. Students who bully like to see that they can upset you.
  • Calmly tell the student to stop…or say nothing and then walk away.
  • Use humor, if this is easy for you to do. (For example, if a student makes fun of your clothing, laugh and say, “Yeah, I think this shirt is kind of funny-looking, too.”)
  • Try to avoid situations in which bullying is likely to happen. You might want to
    • Avoid areas of the school where there are not many students or teachers around.
    • Make sure you aren’t alone in the bathroom or locker room.
    • Sit near the front of the bus.
    • Don’t bring expensive things or lots of money to school.
    • Sit with a group of friends at lunch.

Take a different route through hallways or walk with friends or a teacher to your classes.
