Bullies In School: What To Do
Dear BeingGirl Experts, I am being bullied by a few guys in my class. They tease me and pick on me. They are only nice when they are alone or want something. How can I make my bullies stop? Ellie --- Dear Ellie, When you are faced with any of these behaviors, recognize you have the right to do something about it. If you ignore it, this might convey this kind of behavior is acceptable. Understand, in no way, are you to blame. Since you mention a few guys, get someone to be with you when you speak to the guys bothering you. Ideally, state very clearly that you don't appreciate this behavior. Say, "I don't like what you're doing. Don't do it again." This is ideal. If this is too hard, or you don’t feel like you can do it this way, enlist the help of a trusted adult. Parents, counselors, trusted teachers, and friends can all help. Remember adults don’t know this is happening unless you tell them. Taking care of yourself is most important. Good luck! Your BeingGirl Experts
