Understand what bullying is:
There are several types of bullying including physical, verbal, emotional, indirect, and cyber. It is important to recognize the characteristics of these types of bullying so it can be addressed in the proper manner. Recognize the signs that someone is being bullied:
In our research we found things like unexplained injuries, changes in eating habits, lack of friends, and avoidance of specific locations were signs that someone is being bullied. Our goal is to educate our audience about these signs so they can recognize them in their children and students. Report the bullying to a trusted adult:
Our last step emphasizes the importance of reporting bullying to the proper authority. We want to encourage students, parents, and teachers to report bullying to an adult they trust or a school administrator.
