  1. I think the reason people bully each other is because they want to be cool. Also maybe because they were a victim themselves. By Monish Prasad

  2. If someone was getting bullied and needed help I would tell them to tell a adult, parent,or your teachers.

  3. People think it's okay to bully others because they don't feel as though it effects them in anyway. If someone needed help, I would do whatever I could to help them. Personally, if I was getting bullied and I wanted it to stop, I would take myself out of the situation and/or I would talk to my friends about it and try to see if they know of something I could do to stop it.

  4. If I was ever being bullied, I would tell an adult and make sure the adult kept everything confidential. I know that in a lot of bullying cases, if the victim tells an adult and the adult makes the case public, this leads to retaliation and the problem could get worse. If you are being bullied, having people to stick up for you is really helpful. Striking back against the bully is not a good option because it sparks inner anger and passion. If you wallow in your anger for too long, it will overwhelm you and you will want to release it, which could cause you to become a bully as well. I think most bullies become bullies because they spend too much time thinking about their internal anger and focusing on the negatives of life. Additionally, bullies tend to be insecure people who feel that it is necessary to push others down to bring themselves up. If someone needed help, I would offer to listen to them talk about the problem, since talking it out is a large factor in alleviating the problem.

  6. Bullying is something that, as of right now, is a huge issue and hard to completely try and stop. Today we now have technology where majority of bullying is happening. If I was a victim of a bully and I wanted it to stop, I would try and brush it off. I personally have never been one to just sit back and take it. If I feel that I am being attacked then I would say something but for those that dont have as strong as a voice, I would probably talk to my parents so I could have that support that I would need coming from home. The main reason I think people bully others is because they themselves are insecure or they think it is funny to bag on others.If someone came to me and needed help, I would be there and support them. I would be there to listen and make sure they knew that I am there for them.

  7. When I was in elementary school I used to get bullied a lot. The bullying didn't stop till I was in middle school. This didn't end until I finally maned up and stood up for myself. That's what i had to do in order to stop the bullying. People think its okay to bully others because they most likely used to get bullied as well.If someone needed help from a bully, id help him stand up to the bully and tell them that that is the only way to get rid of the bullying.

  8. I think that the above suggestions are helpful, but only up to a certain point. The above article assumes that surrounding adults are completely unbiased, and in some cases (such as being LGBT in a conservative state such as Texas) the adults may side with the bully without even hearing the victim's point of view. In that case, there is one option that might still work: Take it online. Since there aren't any local children or adults that will take your side, you can write about it online (Reddit) in the hopes that someone else will find it and support you, giving you hope that maybe not everyone is as hateful towards you as you initially thought. My guess is that other "traditional" methods such as telling an adult may not work due to the fact that adults who will fight for your side of the story may not be available.

  9. If I'm in a a situation that I am being bullied, I would first tell my parents to let them know what is happening on me, and I would also tell the school staff to help myself from being bullied by someone. I think people think is okay to bully other because they never think on other people's side, and they don't care the feelings of people who are being bullied by them. And people like to bully others because they want to make fun of other people, and they think that is fun. If someone who is being bullied and he/she needs help from me, I would listen to their story first if they want to tell me. I would help them contact people who can help them, and I can go through everything with them if they need me.
