Talk to an adult figure that you trust, make an anonymous report to your school coordinator or make a counselling appointment with a social worker to talk about the issue and how it can be resolved.
Bullying is a very serious problem in our present society. The aftermath of bullying in school carries forward to the lives of many people when not treated correctly. I have had someone talked to me, saying that he has been to several psychologists/counselors, and they all say they don't know how to help him. Even his family and friends think he is mentally ill. However, in actual fact, he is having all these pent-up anger from the bullying he had during high school. Another fact is, the school management and teachers normally don't really look into the bullying issue that much until something very big happens. Each situation is different and I think the most important way to stop the bullying is to understand the cause of it and then work from there, or if there are other classmates or schoolmates who are experiencing bullying like you do, you can always gather and discuss what can be done. If your family is supportive, you can always bring your issue up to the school board or beyond and see what can be done.
That's a tough one. If I were in your shoes, I would try to be as active as possible when it comes to stepping in. Try to encourage others to stop being a bystander. I would also try to get it well known by yourself the best you can. Set up social media networks and tell people about them. Invite people in an out of the school, and you could start a whole movement. Good luck!
When it comes to bullying, I say to figure out how the situation started and to talk it out. It's clear that violence is never the answer. So, if my school or is anyone wouldn't try to stop it, I'd step in and help.
Completely ignore them, the bullies are just needing people to be frightened of them. I hope this did work for you as I would have done the same if I was in the same situation.
If that's the case than you can't stop it, but no matter what your problem is just smile, look at them and say don't judge me until you know your perfect, so don't judge me I'm not your human puppet.
Create a diary of the events. Learn from the bullies by becoming a better person. While it's never easy, think of it as forming a callus into becoming a stronger and more reasonable human. You will come out as a winner in the end.
Take a stand or run. But no one would think you're a coward for running to seek helps. That just means you are smart.
In high school, there was a boy in my class who was being picked on. These guys were throwing mints at him when he wasn't looking. The teacher was quiet and other students were giggling. One of those guys was sitting next to me. (I was a pretty quiet girl) but I was so disgusted with how everyone was acting. So I turned to him as he was about to throw another mint. "Why are you doing that?" His face was priceless. He was so shocked. He couldn't throw it. THEN the teacher told everyone to settle down. Sometimes, a simple question is all it takes. Someone stepping up can draw others out, who are too afraid to stand up first.
i think you should stand up for the person and tell an authority figure if the bullying continues.
I believe that it is important to call bullying to attention to people who love and care about you (parents) and to arrange a safe confrontation with the bully so the issue can be put to rest.
Try talking to the bully and convincing him or her to stop bullying wherever it is. If that doesn't work, tell a parent and ask them for help,
A supportive teacher, a meeting between your family and the other person Or his parents, staying in the company of supportive and assertive friends, and a conscious effort by you of telling that person that this is unacceptable and not funny at all are the steps that can be taken, if the scenario is literally threatening your physical well being or getting worse day, by day even after these measures, then it's better to leave that institution with your parents support.
Sometimes ignoring the bully and showing them their actions aren't getting you can make them get bored and they will stop. Other times bullies back down when you stand up to them. Of course, usually when someone bullies someone else it is usually an indicator that they are going through a difficult time, so offering support can also make all the difference.
First, tell the bully to stop, Second, Tell your parents or a friend to see if they can help. Third, Tell a teacher or another adult at your school that you trust. Foruth, Inform your principal or an admin at your school about the situation and how it has affected your life, or you can go to see your school's guidance counselor. And last but not least, if nobody has done anything. Talk to your bully again about the situation and if the bully doesn't comply teach them who's boss, but don't start the fight. You have to finish it.
