Don't Stand by - Speak Up

What can you do if you see someone being bullied?

Ignoring or tolerating bullying makes the bully think what they are doing is acceptable. Believe it or not, when a bystander speaks out and tells a bully to stop, many times the bully actually stops. Follow these tips:
  • Don't join in or encourage the bully;
  • Do your best to calm the situation;
  • Offer your support to the bullied person;
  • When your support doesn't help, tell a teacher what's happening.
