To be a target of a bully can be a frightening experience for a child or teenager. A bully is most likely hoping to get this type of a response from their victim. It gives them a sense of power.
If someone is bullying you, tell your parents, teacher, principal, or a responsible adult immediately – even if the bully tells you not to. Never attempt to handle the situation on your own or keep it secret. Trained adults are available to help you.
If you see or hear of someone being bullied, find an adult and tell them what’s going on.
Parents should contact school administrators to learn how to deal with the situation.
We all need to work together to stop bullies and keep our schools and children safe.
