Are you being picked on or bullied?
Here are 5 things you can do to help avoid being a target.
|Stand tall and walk in a way that shows you are a person deserving respect. Your body language can help prevent you from being a target.
|Tell an appropriate adult. Telling to prevent a dangerous situation is not tattling.
|Avoid being in harms way. Getting away from a dangerous situation is not being a coward. It’s being smart.
|Say No to the bully’s demands from the start. If you appease a bully about small things, he’ll just demand more. (Exception: If you are in physical danger, you may need to go along until you can report it to the police. It’s not worth being injured over lunch money.)
|Develop friendships — people who will stand up for each other — a caring community. Support others and ask for support. If someone is being bullied, speak up. If someone is excluded, include them in your play.
