or her know you are available to talk or even help. A child who is being bullied
may struggle talking about it. Consider letting the child know there are other
people who can talk with him or her about bullying. You can also give the child
advice about what he or she can do.
Bullying never makes you seem good by doing it. You always have a choice. Be the
person that is smart enough and confident enough to be friends with everyone you
meet. By doing so you are sending the message that you are self assured enough
not to care what others may think. This is an issue that's been costing lives.
As a student you can change that.
