Anti-Bullying Campaign!    

 

Approximately 160,000 children stay home from school every day because they are afraid of being bullied!
What is Bullying?

 

Bullying is a form of emotional, social or physical abuse that is harmful and has three defining characteristics:

 

1  Deliberate—a bully’s intention is to hurt someone

2  Repeated—a bully often targets the same victim again

and again

3  Power Imbalanced—a bully chooses victims he or she perceives as vulnerable 

 

 

Bullying can have long-term effects on both the bully and those being bullied.

 
REMEMBER....get a parent or adult if you think there is a risk of someone being hurt.  And you can always call 911 if you feel there is a real threat. 

 

 

Speak Out and Stand Up Against Bullying-tell someone if you're being bullied.  If you can, find a trusted adult to tell, or find a friend and share with them! 

 Bullys target those they perceive as weaker than they are, show them they chose wrong-use your voice, speak out and stand up for yourself!

 

Don't Be a Bystander-don't stand by and watch bullying occur.  If it's safe to do so, stand up to the bully, if it's not safe to do so, go get help!
