How do you feel? If... He stole my pencil. He does that to me everyday. He said if I told anyone he is going to punch me out. Youre a whale. Youre a fatty and nobody likes you. Everytime I speak in class, the boys make fun of me at recess because I stutter. They always push me out of the lunch line, saying, Move over Shorty, you belong in the back.
What is Bullying? Bullying is when someone deliberately makes you feel miserable or threatens you. Bullying makes people feel frightened or unhappy.

Is Bullying... Fair? Deserved? Funny?
Does it damage people?
Yes, Bullying is Harmful Bullying is just not part of growing up Bullying can make you feel: –Lonely, unhappy, and frightened –Unsafe –There is something wrong with me. –Not want to go to school anymore
Bullying Sometimes easy to notice Sometimes hard to see Both boys and girls bully Both boys and girls get bullied Bullying is not fair and it hurts
Why Some Bully? Way to become popular –Look tough and take charge Do it for attention To make people afraid of them May be jealous of the person they are bullying
Why Some Bully? May not understand how wrong their behavior is and how it makes the person being bullied feel. They may be being bullied themselves at home or outside of school.
If you get Bullied... Tell your parents or an adult in school –Your teacher, school counselor, or principal. Telling is not tattling. Dont fight back. Dont try to bully those who bully you.
If you see someone being bullied... Help the person by telling an adult you can trust Lend an ear to the victim, so they know someone cares
Lets Practice Stop Stop signal –Hold the stop hand signal firmly out –Give eye contact to the bullier –Use a clear voice and say Stop If the problem continues then...
Lets Practice Walk Walk Away –Walk away from the situation –Walking away removes the reinforcement for the problem behavior If the problem continues then...
Lets Practice Talk Talk: Report problem to an adult Talking is not tattling –Talking is problem solving –Tattling is when you dont use stop and walk away Tattling is when your goal is to get other person in trouble
Remember... Treat others the way you would like to be treated. Someone will always want to help. Someone will always care!
