No

No

I told my mom and she talked to the school and they did nothing.

5. How are ways we could stop bullying in real life?
I think most people know what physical bullying is but some of them don’t understand what others mean. So maybe making little lessons to teach kids these types of bullying to help everyone understand.

6. How are ways we can stop bullying on the forums?
Valuing people’s opinions. People (and the forums is no exception) get offended so easily or if someone’s opinion doesn’t apply they get defensive.

I have. Cyberbullying.

By ignoring. I believe that what I do, say or create is good. I can take criticism but I never listen to bullies. I keep on doing my own thing.

That’s what flagging was created for, I believe. But honestly, I have no idea how unfortunately.

Yup.

Yes.

No.

I would ignore it. Unfortunately, I would have to fight for them to leave me alone…
Which solves nothing.

Truth be told, you can’t stop a bully. However, you can try to prevent it from happening by telling authority or getting that person out of that predicament. But, whatever you do it won’t stop that bully from bullying.

The same answer applies to this question. However, stopping a bully on the forums is less difficult. You can talk to those who are bullying and tell them what they are doing is wrong and if that doesn’t get to them. You can flag them and you can report them to the mods.

I have. But, after explaining to them what they are doing is wrong. They eventually open their eyes and stopped the bullying.

I know, it’s going to be okay. Just ignore, or flag their post if it’s offensive or if it bothers you.

Yes.

Yes.

I don’t know. Sometimes I’m a bit too aggressive, and I feel like I offend some people. But all I really say is the hard honest truth.

I try ignoring them, and if that doesn’t work, I either stand up to them or if it’s too severe I tell an adult.

I think people should stop seeing bullies as this monster who doesn’t care about anyone but themselves and loves tormenting people. Instead people should try and understand why they’re like that, and get them the help they need.

Stop getting offended at the littlest things, and if they have nothing nice and productive to say, they just shouldn’t say it at all.

Yes.

Another major thing that has to do with bullying is suicide. I’ve known people who said they wanted to die and no one took it seriously because “that person didn’t look like a bully”. I think if adults listen to this they would see it as a warning. just the other day this happened. My brother has been bullied a lot and he’s 11. So we were in the vehicle and he said he wanted to die and my dad said it’s just kids being kids.

That’s very true. I remember once I tried to kill myself because this group of were bullying me every day after school. My mum caught me, but she didn’t take it seriously. She just said I was over- reacting and that they couldn’t have done anything that bad.

Parents need to make a bigger deal out of this. I was best friends with this girl and she started bullying me while we were still friends. My other friend told me it’s bullying and I didn’t believe her so that day I went home and asked my mom if it was and she said no. So of course I kept being friends with her and then some dude started bullying me and then my mom completely cut me off from people. I have one friend now and she’s not the best. Anyways that’s my bully story.

Yepzaz. It doesn’t feel nice. I actually got bullied, quite recently.

Yee. I tried to step in, but nobody noticed or cared about what I did to stop it.

I’ve said mean things, but never been a bully.

Idk. I’m strugglingz with that.

Respect, kindness, forgiveness.

Respect everybody. Don’t form exclusive cliques and don’t talk about others negatively.

Yeeyee. Until I found out how horrid they were being. I’m kinda struggling rn with a bully, well kinda. So many mean things being said behind my back, I sort of feel like I’m not worth it anymore. Part of me just wants to disappear for good, being such a 12vie. I feel so nauseous and terrible. Those messages :grimacing::neutral_face:
