Help Prevent Bullying
1. You have power.
Bystanders have power to stop bullying. Bullying is often a group sport, it can’t go on if others don’t join in.
2. Speak up.
If it is safe, tell the person who is bullying to stop it. Make it clear that you don’t support what is happening. If you don’t feel safe speaking up, walk away and encourage others to do the same.
3. Tell an adult.
Go to a parent, relative teacher, counselor, principal or other trusted adult and tell them what is happening to another child.
4. Be a friend.
Befriend the student who is being bullied. Talk with them, sit with them at lunch or on the bus, walk home with them and play with them at recess. Encourage them to report what is happening.
