10 Being a upstander A upstander is someone who recognizes when something is wrong and acts to make it right. Stand up for the victim Talk to the victim, not the bully to put a end to the situation If you do or don’t know the victim, just make up a story saying you need there help and to get offline and call you. Tell an adult

11 Being a Bystander A bystander is someone who sees what is happening between the bully and the victim but is not directly involved in the bullying Seeing posts about someone Seeing a argument going on through comments

12 PAUSE BEFORE YOU POST Think of the consequences
Post in the right state of mind. Would you want your family to see what you post? Avoid being “guilty by association.” For example, if your friends are posting about illegal behavior you could be grouped with them. You’re not obligated to respond.
