Are you being bullied?

It is never okay for someone to bully or harass you!  If someone is, here are some things you can do to help handle the situation:

  • Report the concern.  If someone is cyber-bullying you, report it to the website or network where it is happening
  • Get help from someone you trust. Reach out to someone you trust, like a parent or teacher or youth minister, and ask them for help.
  • Talk to the person bullying you.  Sometimes talking to the person who is posting or saying mean things about you can help – they may not realize how much it hurts. you.  Only do this if you don’t feel threatened or scared.
