Help stop bullying others

we will address Talk about how to stand up to kids who bully. Give tips, like using humor and saying “stop” directly and confidently. Talk about what to do if those actions don’t work, like walking away.
by Work together to resolve the situation and protect the bullied child. The child, parents, and school or organization may all have valuable input.
Our Project Plan:

- Prepare children to recognize and respond effectively to early bullying behavior
We will increase my / our compassion by...
While one action or strategy will likely not be sufficient for solving all of the challenges that we face when addressing bullying, each of us can contribute in some small way to spreading kindness and compassion that can improve our schools and communities. I hope to see you at the International Bullying Prevention Conference to learn more about creating empathy and spreading kindness!
How will you show courage?
I will be Strong and assertive responses to a bully are effective countering measures because a child who is direct and a powerful communicator is a threat to the bully. Because this child is powerful enough to stand up for themselves and others, a bully will move often move on instead of provoking the new person.
How will you collaborate with others?
We will collaborate with others by asking for their understanding of bullying and working to reach out to more people. We will also encourage others to join in on our cause by volunteering, advocating for us on social media, and more!
How will you know you are moving in the right direction? (What are specific ways you can measure your impact?)
By gathering community input and guidance from mentors, I will ask them to assess our work. We will also self-assess by seeing if what we're doing is helping us reach our goals.
