Take A Stand against bullying

 

 

If you are being bullied at school, the mall, at home on your computer or anywhere, TELL A TRUSTED ADULT.  Research shows bullying activities diminish over 50% when reported. 

 

 

If you witness someone being bullied, report it to a trusted adult.

 

A trusted adult can be your parents, teachers, the school principal or councilor, family doctor or family friend- or even the police.

If you are being bullied:

 

 

 

  • Don't blame yourself- no matter what someone says about you NEVER be ashamed of who you are
  • Be proud of who you are- everyone is different and you have many unique and wonderful qualities that make you a great person
  • Get help- talk to a trusted adult immediately.  Silence is a bully's best friend.  By talking about the problem you have taken the first steps to solving it
  • Learn to deal with the stress- there is no denying being bullied is stressful. Find positive ways to rechannel that tension and energy through exercise, meditation or other positive outlets

 

 You are not alone! 

 

There are many resources to help you deal with bullies and understand the problem better

No child should be afraid to be who he or she is or be afraid to go to school.  By uniting our voices and pulling together as a community we CAN stop bullying once and for all!
