Bullying is defined as REPEATED harm to a person either physically (i.e. hitting, pushing, punching, etc.), mentally (i.e. name calling, teasing, spreading rumors, etc.) or both.
What can you do if you are being bullied?
STOP, WALK, TALK!
STOP- Tell the bully to stop by using an "I Message" or telling him or her to stop assertively. This is a way of standing up for yourself.
WALK- If you have told the bully to stop and he or she doesn't then walk away!
TALK- If you walk away and the bully follows tell a trusted adult (i.e. parent, teacher, counselor, principal, etc. ) If the bullying continues tell the same adult again or another adult. Keep talking until the bullying stops!
Safe 2 Tell- An Anonymous hotline where bullying can be reported and will be looked into. 1-877-542-SAFE or safe2tell.org
