Bullying & What to do

Bullying - What to do.

Anti Bullying
What can you do if you think you are being bullied?

We all fall out with people and argue from time to time but a bully is unkind to you day after day over a long period of time. The bully is in control and you are the victim.

Standard excuses from a bully:

“It was a joke.” “It was an accident.” “I’m sorry.” “It was only a game.”

(Remember a joke or a game is something that all those involved in are enjoying.)

Who could bully you?

  • Another child.
  • A friend
  • An adult
  • An older brother or sister
  • A friend of someone you know
  • A relative
  • It could be anybody

Any or all of the following:

  • Call you names
