Stand tall, be confident, and tell the bully to stop. “Hey, cut it out.” “Leave her alone.”  Distract the bully. “It’s late, we have to get to class.” “Come on, let’s get something to eat.”  Speak to the person who’s being bullied. Ask him/her to come with you, and then walk away together.  If there are weapons present, or if you sense the situation may be dangerous, leave immediately and find an adult.  If you do not feel comfortable speaking up, walk away. Do not give the bully an audience. Later, find the student who was bullied and offer your support. “I’m sorry that happened to you. You don’t deserve to be treated like that.”  Report any bullying incident you see to a trusted adult. “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” Martin Luther King, Jr. Bullying InfoGuide Bystanders and Bullying – Item 741 Copyrighted Material 2015 Edition WOODBURN PRESS ©Copyright Woodburn Press LLC all rights reserved This digital publication was presented by:
