Stand With Us to Stop Bullying

Friday, October 4th, 2013

If you’re a student and you’re concerned about bullying, here are some things you can do to avoid a bad situation:

  • Before you assume, learn the facts
  • Before you judge, understand why
  • Before you hurt someone, understand what it’s going to feel like for them
  • Before you speak, stop and think about what you’re about to say
  • In a stressful or already heated situation, calm down before you act; take a deep breath and count to 10
  • Don’t say anything in anger that you’ll regret. Your mood will change, but your words can’t be taken back

If you’re a parent and not sure what to say, here are some great conversation examples (click to download this PDF).
