Tips to share with your children
- If it’s hard to stand up for yourself, ignore the bullying, walk away and tell someone who can help.
- Get funny! Humour shows you’re not bothered.
- Be assertive, not aggressive. Fighting makes the bullying worse.
- Remember that telling is not tattling.
- If you walk away and get help, you are part of the solution. If you stay and watch, you are part of the problem.
- Put yourself in the other kid’s shoes. Would you want to be picked on or left out?
- Apologize to the kids you have bullied.
- Be a real leader. Treat others with respect.
- Remember that no one deserves to be bullied.
