    BULLYINGColourful crayons in a circle

    What is bullying?
    Bullying is when someone is being badly treated over and over again. Bullying can be things like being hit or yelled at or being teased or called names. Bullying can also be things like threats, people purposely ignoring or not including you, or gossiping about you.

    Tips for Kids

    • Tell a caring/trusting adult—teacher, parent, school nurse, principal, etc.
    • Telling is not tattling—bullying is a difficult problem and you need adult help.
    • Keep telling until you talk to an adult who will listen.
    • Ignore the bully, but tell if the situation does not improve.
    • Practice saying “No.”
    • Draw or write about your feelings.
    • Say nothing and walk away.
    • Stick up for each other.
    • Avoid walking alone when you can
    • Act confidently.
    • Avoid unsupervised areas of school.
    • Don’t bring your valuables to school.
