Bully behavior: Physical bullying: causes harm to another’s body or possessions e.g. hitting, shoving, kicking, stealing or breaking possessions Emotional bullying: causes harm to another’s self worth (hurt feelings) e.g. putdowns, threatening, criticizing, name calling, teasing. Social bullying: like emotional bullying except done in a public forum, it causes harm to the target’s group acceptance, publicly humiliating, gossiping, threatening to reveal personal information.

Bully proofing: Stand up straight, make eye contact, walk with purpose Find your strengths and develop your own interests Set goals and strive for them Make sure your “self talk” is always positive Have a positive attitude coming to school Hold in your mind: I will not be bullied anymore Make friends to build support for yourself Be with people who will protect you on the bus or the walk to & from school Act like a friend to the Bully—set a good example If a gang is bothering you, speak later to the gang members individually
