How To Step Up To Bullying
Be A Friend
If you see someone being bullied, reach out to him. Invite him to hang out, sit with him at lunch, or just ask him how he's doing and listen to him.
If someone says something you don't think is cool and you feel safe, say something to him. It's not about starting a fight - it's about telling him you don't think what he's doing is right.
Help him get out of the situation
If you feel safe, you can help give the bullied a way out by saying "hey man, we're going to be late for class" or a similar statement. Or, you can create a distraction - bullying will often stop if the attention shifts elsewhere. Just remember to never put yourself in a situation where you feel threatened or in danger.
Tell an old person
If you see bullying in your school, alert a teacher, principal or guidance counselor. The more they understand the bullying climate in their school, the better they can adjust the school policy to make it a better place.
