Knowing the signs: How do you know if your child is being bullied?
by Christina Schaefer | Monday, February 13th 2017
Nobody likes to be picked on. What can you do?
- Speak up against bullying. Say something like, “stop it.”
- Walk away. Act like you do not care, even if you really do.
- Tell an adult you trust. They may have ideas about what you can do.
- Stick together. Staying with a group might help.
Things to Remember
- You are not alone.
- It is not your fault. Nobody should be bullied!
- Talk to someone you trust.
- Do not hurt yourself.
- Do not bully back. Do not bully anyone else.
- Do not let the bully win. Keep doing what you love to do!
- If someone did the same thing to you, would you be hurt?
- Remember that making others feel bad is wrong.
- Know that everyone is different, but different does not mean better or worse.
- Try getting to know others who are not like you. You may find out, you are more alike than you think.
- Talk to an adult you trust. They may have good ideas about what you can do to stop the bullying.
You can help stop the bullying. Next time you see someone being bullied, try one (or more) of these ideas:
- If it is safe, speak up. Say something like, “Stop it!”
- Tell an adult. Kids who are being bullied are sometimes scared to tell an adult. That is where you come in–tell an adult who you trust, like your teacher or coach. You can tell them in person or leave them a note.
- Be a friend to the person who is being bullied. You can still help the kid who is being bullied. Talk with them, sit with them at lunch, or play with them at recess.
- Set a good example. Do not bully others.
