Bullying is another name for harassment. Bullying can be physical-one or more students hurting another. More often, bullying is verbal and includes persistent threatening, teasing, ridicule or gossiping-in person or over the Internet.


    How to handle cyber bullying

    Cyber bulling-bullying done online-has become common. If you or someone you know is the victim of cyber bullying:

    ·        Never respond.

    ·        Keep records. Print out everything and write down the date and time you found it.

    ·        Go to the authorities. Tell your parents or school officials.


    You aren’t helpless

    If you’re being bullied, here are some things you might try:

    ·        Tell a friend.

    ·        Walk away.

    ·        Chill out. Try hard not to show any emotion.

    ·        Try not to be alone in places where the bully picks on you.

    ·        Don’t fight back.

    ·        Write it down. Keep track of what happens and what the bully says

    ·        Tell an adult.

    ·        Report bullying at school to your teachers, school counselor, principal or you may use the We Care Box in the school’s library to report bullying.


    If you see someone being bullied, here are some things you can do:

    ·        Remember that it’s not the victim’s fault.

    ·        Don’t let the victim be alone.

    ·        Tell an adult.


    Bullying doesn’t have to be a fact of life. Adults don’t want it to go on in school. So if you’re the victim of a bully-or if you know someone who is-don’t wait. The sooner you act, the sooner the bullying will stop.
