Bullyfree Behavior
Bullying & Teasing
What Can I Do?
Treat others the way you want to be treated.

If you are the person being bullied (the target) you can:

  • Tell the bully to stop (make sure you don't act or sound
    like a bully when you do this)
  • Walk away - this takes lots of courage (watch out for
    bullytraps, like calling you a "baby" or a "wuss", that the
    bully will set to try and get you to stay)
  • Ignore the bully - this does not work all of the time, but
    it works some of the time
  • Get help!!!!! Talk to an adult you trust, and if they don't
    help you, talk to someone else. Remember, the bully is
    counting on you being afraid to get help or feeling like a
    "tattle-tale."

If you are the person watching (the bystander):

  • You can tell the bully to stop- or help the target tell the bully to stop
  • You can walk away with the target- this shows the target you are on their side and not the bully's.
  • Don't encourage the bully by giggling or just standing there watching
    Get help- ask the target what they want to do

If you are the bully you can:

  • Stop and think; how would I feel if someone did this to me?
  • Not feel like you have to be mean to certain kids so that you can be friends with others. If they are really friends they won't expect you to do something that is hurtful and mean and that just might get you in trouble. Find some new friends that know how to have fun without hurting other people.
  • Get help - talk to a friend or an adult about how you are feeling. If you are angry, try talking it out before you say or do hurtful things to someone else.

Remember, you are setting an example for other kids. Someone who you don't even know that well might be watching you and thinking bullying is an OK thing to do. Show them that it's not OK to bully!
