Bullying awareness: Your story
Bullying: Stand for Others
For all the bystanders who watch the torment these students get, interfere with this growing problem. Just saying "quit it dude" can help a lot. Standing up for the victims can be hard for some, fearing being beat up, or disliked. This is unlikely to happen and is necessary to help stop bullying from continuing.
Parents may think their son or daughter are perfectly fine, but most who have been bullied never admit it until the principal gets involved. Try hard to read their feelings, they don't want you to know because they think they'll be embarrassed and that the bully will bully them even more if they say.
It's easy to take any step of intervention. If everyone who has witnessed bullying intervenes, lots of change can be made.
