The girl who saw all of this happening approached Sophie...
I want to say sorry - I saw what those girls were saying about you but I didn't do anything because I was scared that they would do the same to me. I am a bystander and should have intervened more quickly and told them off when i saw what they did.
Its ok - what should I do?
What do you want?
The best thing to do is to first tell the girls that they are hurting your feelings and that they need to stop. if that doesn't work, you can go to the teacher or a trusted adult and they can do something about it.
Thank you so much for your help!!! I will try to talk to them.
Who cares about your feelings, fatty? I know I don't, and neither does my friend.
Hi there, I just wanted to let you know that you have really been hurting my feelings by called me fat. I would appreciate it if you would stop.
After Sophie showed her friend the text, they both decide that they should go to the teacher...
I think I am being bullied. Some girls have been repeatedly hurting my feelings by calling me fat in person and over the phone, and didn't stop when I asked them to.
I am so sorry Sophie! I will talk to these girls.
Hey girls, what's up?
I think that you both need to apologize to Sophie.
I am so sorry miss. We won't do it again.
Hi girls, some people have recently come to me to report that you two have been bullying Sophie by calling her fat.
The next day...
That's ok. It might take me a while to get over it but I think we can be frineds.
Hi Sophie. We didn't mean to hurt your feelings that badly. You are not fat at all.
