is a girl at my school who seems to enjoy bullying people.
I have seen her bullying my friends as well as myself. I know
what anyone is going through if they are being bullied. The
helpful hints I give them are: if you are being bullied stay
strong and don't let the bully beat you. Even if you feel
intimidated, face the bully and remember that it is maybe
because the bully has a problem. You and your friends should
all stick up for each other, that way the bully will be defeated.
for your email with your advice to young people who are being
bullied. Sorry to hear that you and your friends are having
a hard time with another girl at school. Have you spoken to
teachers about this? As you say, having the support of friends
and facing things together can make a big difference if you're
being bullied. Indeed, studies have found that having friends
who are prepared to support you and stick up for you can positively
discourage bullying. Sadly many people begin to think that
bullying is somehow their fault and they can begin to keep
things to themselves. It's so important to talk about things
with others. Thanks again for the important points that you
make - we'll be delighted to post your comments.
