Bullying, What To Do, What Not To Do

By Guest Contributors Oli (16 years) Pupiline.net UK

Unfortunately bullying is very common in schools and in places of work everywhere. Most people think of bullying as physical - hitting, punching, kicking, and stealing; but bullying is anything that makes a person do something they do not want to do, name calling etc. The main problem is that too many people and too many schools stand by and let it happen.

You as a pupil have certain rights, your school must do certain things to protect you from bullying. The following information came from the UK Department for Education and Employment DFEE (US equivalent US Department of Education) - these guys are responsible for writing the laws that tell teachers and schools how to work. :

"Each school should have a clear school behaviour policy. It should make clear the boundaries of what is acceptable, the hierarchy of sanctions, arrangements for their consistent and fair application, and a linked system of rewards for good behaviour. It should promote respect for others, intolerance of bullying and harassment, the importance of self-discipline and the difference between 'right' and 'wrong'."

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee you will never be bullied. There are some things that you can do however, that will make you less likely to be bullied:

What to do:

Remember: You don't deserve to be bullied, it's the bullies' problem!

  • Talk about it to someone who will listen

  • Ignore the bullies themselves completely - The best thing to bullies about bullying people is seeing that they are hurting the victim. That is what gives them the kick. Simply learn to ignore them. If you shut them out and carry on, they will eventually get bored of not getting a response, and leave you alone.

  • Tell a teacher you trust

  • Stick to facts and bring a witness

  • Defend yourself only if necessary

  • Stay in a group

  • Be firm, if they pressure you shout "NO"; it'll get attention

    What not to do:


  • Don't confront the bully

  • Don't fight back except to defend yourself - it only makes it worse

  • Don't get into a slanging match

  • If you are scared or intimidated - get away and get help

  • Don't fight to keep your stuff - you are more important!

    Other Advice:

  • Stand up for yourself - do not become a doormat - if someone teases you do not stand for it; tell your teacher, friends or anyone. It does help.

  • Speak to other people who have been bullied

  • If your teachers do not listen or take action make a row - you have a right

  • Don't let anyone fob you off with the idea that your problems are not as significant as anyone elses! Everyone counts! Don't be afraid to show your individuality. If people around you at the moment don't like it, people around the corner will!

  • Bullies (although it doesn't seem like it) are only confident from the outside. I personally don't buy that crap about them already being scarred and having to take it out on others - They are cowards!
