7 Refuse Bullying Safely Ask yourself, “Is it safe for me to refuse by speaking out?” These things might make it unsafe to refuse on your own: The person bullying you is older or bigger than you. More than one person is ganging up on you. You have no friends who can help you. You feel trapped. If this happens, what should you do?

8 Things to Do When You Refuse Bullying 1. Check your feelings. 2. Use assertive behaviors. 3. Walk away calmly. You can join another group, find a friend, or tell an adult what happened. Say, “That’s bullying. I want you to stop!” You need to decide what you’re feeling and whether you need to calm down.
