Bullying prevention

Bullying explained

Who is involved in bullying?
Both girls and boys can be involved in bullying.

Where does bullying occur?
Bullying can happen anywhere. At school, bullying often happens in the halls, at lunch, and on the playground - especially when no adult is directly supervising. It can also occur on the school bus, in a child's neighborhood or on the Internet.

Telling is not tattling; know the difference!
Bullying affects everyone: the victims, the bullies and the bystanders. If you or someone you know is being bullied, TELL until you get the help you need.

Children "TATTLE" when they want to:

Get someone in trouble

Look good in someone else's eyes

Get attention

Have an adult solve their problem

 

Children are "TELLING" when they: 

Want protection for themselves or someone else

Want protection for their own or someone else's property

Are scared

Are in danger

Bullying is not okay. Keep TELLING until you get the help you need.
