What to Do If You’re Bullied?
There are things you can do if you are being bullied:
* Look at the kid bullying you and tell him or her to stop in a calm, clear voice. You can also try to laugh it off. This works best if joking is easy for you. It could catch the kid bullying you off guard.
* If speaking up seems too hard or not safe, walk away and stay away. Don’t fight back. Find an adult to stop the bullying on the spot.
There are things you can do to stay safe in the future, too: * Talk to an adult you trust. Don’t keep your feelings inside. Telling someone can make you feel less alone. They can help you make a plan to stop the bullying.
* Stay away from places where bullying happens.
* Stay near adults and other kids. Most bullying happens when adults aren’t around.
