How to stop bullying

If you are being bullied you may feel as though you are alone. Your life may suffer as a result of the bullying because you are always worrying about what might happen to you.

Remember you are NOT alone. There is always something you or others can do to help the situation.The key is to tell a parent, carer, teacher or adult you trust.

Telling a responsible adult means you don't have to carry the burden all by yourself.

A responsible adult can ask the bullies why they are behaving in this way and can make sure it doesn't happen again. If it does happen again then the bullies must suffer the consequences.
