They may develope thoughts of suicide or hurting themselves. They may also begin to have trouble with schoolwork or problems with mood, energy level, sleep, and appetite.

    If you or someone you know is being bullied you can:

  • Talk with a trusted adult. Adults in authority can often deal with bullying without the bully knowing how they found out about it.

  • Don’t get physical. Work out your anger in other ways such as exercising, talking to friends, or the use of coping strategies.
  • Practice confidence. Use body language that sends a message that you are not vulnerable.
  • Stand up for others being bullied. Help the victim feel supported and seek help.

  • Directions: How would you respond to the following bullying situations?
