Witnesses – What Can They Do?

If you see someone being bullied, speak up!

  • When students are willing to say they think something is wrong, they can make a difference.
  • Let others know that you don’t accept bullying at your school, and others will be more willing to speak up, too.
  • If you see bullying, you can tell a grown-up. Telling is not tattling. It’s okay to tell. Reach out!
  • Tell the kid who is being bullied that he or she doesn’t deserve to be treated that way. Nobody does.
  • Ask friends to join you in being a kid against bullying.

Telling vs. Tattling

A lot of kids say that they don’t want to tell an adult about bullying because they don’t want to be called a tattle-tale. But there’s a big difference between “telling” and “tattling.”

Telling is done to protect yourself or another student from getting hurt. Tattling is done to get someone in trouble.

 

It’s okay to tell an adult when you see bullying.

In fact, it’s a really smart thing to do!
