"OMG! Look at her! She's such a cry baby! She's so anoying!"
"You guys don't even know her."
"Yeah. Your totally right!"
"Hi Makenzie. Are you okay?"
Explanation of the cause Did you know, that 3/5 students have experienced some form of bullying? Bulling is when words or actions are used to hurt someone more than once (Kurzius 12). This shows that when somebody is cruel once, it is not considered bullying. Though this does not mean that the issue should be ignored.
"I guess I'll be okay."
"She looks so sad."
"Don't pay attention to her. Who even cares?!"
My Opinion Watching bullying take place and staying quiet, is just as bad as being the bully. Many people have to face bullying alone. Stand up to bullying and help those who need it.
"Mia, you were mean."
"Well I'm definitely NOT yours!"
"AVA! AMELIA! I am your friend!"
"What are you doing! Your NOT her friend!"
*Sobs* "I didn't even do anything! It was all her fault!" *More sobs*
Teen activist "Nalalie Hampton, 18....decided to take action to spread kindness at lunch. Two years ago, Natalie launched a free app called 'Sit With Us' (Kirziuz 12)." She is one example of a teen activist.
This isn't fair!
*Sigh* "Mia, I will see you in my office now. As you know, we don't tolerate bullying at this school."
More than half of bullying situations stops in about ten seconds when a bystander steps in (Kurzuis 12). This is what scientific studies have proven.
Standing up to bullying "Bullying can happen to anyone, and everyone has the right to stop it (Rooney 7)." If you see bullying going on, step in or tell an adult.
Organization The PACER center in Minneapolis also frowns upon bullying. PACER informs kids and adults on the effects that bullying can have on people (Kurzius 12). The PACER center has similar activities as DARE for those who have participated in it. A lot of bullies have something going on in their life behind the scenes.
