If you are dealing with a bully, try doing the following: Speak up and speak out. Look the bully in the eye, remain calm, and speak in a confident, respect- ful voice. Be assertive, and tell the bully to stop. Walk away. Calmly walk away and ignore the bully. Don’t show fear. Fear, anger, and other reactions give bullies what they’re looking for. Use humor. Say something funny to show that you’re not upset. For example, smile and say, “That’s a good one.” or “Wow, you got me.” Keep a record. Include the people involved, dates, times, places, and the specific things that were said, done, sent, or posted online. Tell an adult. Talk to a teacher, counselor, coach, parent—or to another adult you trust. Explain what’s happening and ask for their advice. Get involved in one or two school activities. You’ll have fun, make new friends, and you will be focusing on something positive. What to Do
