What You Can Do When You See Others Being Bullied:
1. Get There First
2. Step In And Take Charge
3. Distract And Redirect
4. Leave And Report
What You Can Do To Avoid Being A Target For Bullying:
• Rule 1 - Use your mind. Think about all the things you can do to stay safe.
• Rule 2 - Use your words. Use words to talk yourself out of trouble. Use the C-A-L-M technique-Calm down, Assert yourself, Look the bully in the eye, and Mean it!
• Rule 3 - Use your legs. If you can't talk yourself out of the situation, ignore and walk away if you can. Pretend the bully is invisible. Try to look unfazed or you can look at something else and laugh as you walk away.
• Rule 4 - Ask for help. It's OK to ask for help if you need it. It is NOT tattling. Reporting is letting someone know that you are being treated in a disrespectful manner.
*Don't Be A Bully...Be A Buddy!
