Student Action Plan Against Bullying

Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.

  • I think bullying needs to stop because people are taking their own life and they're depressed.

  • I've got a friend who was bullied. He was injured everyday, and nobody paid attention to this.I wanted to help him so much, and I was angry about the bullies. so I said him:"You should speak to the principal, and you shouldn't pay attention to them. They are just stupid."

Im being “cyberbullied” by some little kids in elementary school that barkey know me
Anonymous

One of my best friends, male friends and two of his friends have been “cyberbullying” me. They have been calling me “fat” and “big back” and other things like that for absolutely no reason. I barley know these kids and they have something against me. I have been struggling with thinking im fat myself and this is not helping. My best friend was private texting me saying “end their whole career” “roast them” etc and I cant. Normally being called names dont hurt but for some reason this really does hurt.
