Friends are in the best position to help bullies change their thinking — and their behavior.  Encourage your friend to talk about the things that are bothering him/her. Sometimes just talking things out and know- ing that you've been heard is enough to stop someone from wanting to hurt others.  Help your friend find alternate ways to resolve problems. Be creative and help your friend come up with positive ways to resolve problems and deal with difficult situations. Be a voice of reason.  Encourage empathy. Encourage your friend to think about the effect his/her actions and words have on others. “My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.” Henry Ford
