What Should I Do If I’m Bullied?

How to deal with bullying:• Tell your parents or other trusted adults. They can

help stop the bullying.

• If you are bullied at school, tell your teacher,

school counselor, or principal. Telling is

not tattling.

• Don’t fight back. Don’t try to bully those who

bully you.

• Try not to show anger or fear. Students who bully

like to see that they can upset you.

• Calmly tell the student to stop…or say nothing

and then walk away.

• Use humor, if this is easy for you to do. (For

example, if a student makes fun of your clothing,

laugh and say, “Yeah, I think this shirt is kind of

funny-looking, too.”)

• Try to avoid situations in which bullying is likely

to happen. You might want to

• Avoid areas of the school where there are not

many students or teachers around.

• Make sure you aren’t alone in the bathroom

or locker room.

• Sit near the front of the bus.

• Don’t bring expensive things or lots of money

to school.

• Sit with a group of friends at lunch.

• Take a different route through hallways or

walk with friends or a teacher to your classes.
