Wow! So many of you have some strong feelings about bullying! Some of you have had trouble with bullies and some of you have acted like bullies. At some time in their lives, most people have hurt someone else, without meaning to, by acting like a bully. But some people act that way all the time. Those people do not feel very good about themselves and try to feel better by beating up on someone smaller.
We are learning in our classes things to do if you are bothered by a bully. First, tell the bully to stop. You can say, "Quit that! I don't like it!" Or, "Will you stop bothering me, please!" If that doesn't work, at least you have stood up for yourself and let the bully know that you can't be pushed around. Next, get away from the bully, if you can or get help from an adult.
In some of our classes, we will be doing some role plays to practice what to do. Good luck and remember ~ YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE SAFE AT ALL TIMES.
