Prevent 7 likes to hit bullying head on! We come into your school to educate and prevent bullying. We go to the HOT SPOTS and interact with the students. Teaching the kids about the effects of bullying and the harm it causes. Working in the HOT SPOTS with the kids, where bullying takes place gives us the opportunity to correct the negative behavior and prevent bullying from reoccurring.
A lot of young people have a good idea of what bullying is because they see it every day! Bullying happens when someone hurts or scares another person on purpose and the person being bullied has a hard time defending himself or herself. Usually, bullying happens over and over.
So you are being bullied, huh? That can feel pretty awful. But, no matter how bad it makes you feel sometimes, you should know you are not alone. That is right…there are plenty of kids and adults all over the world who go through the same things you do every day. Even though you may feel helpless sometimes, help is within reach.
So, you aren't someone who bullies others, and you haven't been bullied yourself. But if you see it happening to others, you can help put a stop to it. In order to stop bullying, everyone needs to lend a hand and get involved! And even though it might be easier to stand by and watch (or try to ignore the bullying), just remember, we all need a little help from time to time! Think about how you might feel if the bullying was happening to YOU.
If you've ever heard an adult - or anyone else - say that bullying is "just a fact of life" or "no big deal," you're not alone! Too often, people just don't take bullying seriously - or until the sad and sometimes scary stories are revealed.
