TMTM Tell the bully to stop his or her conduct in an assertive voice. Note: If there is any risk to your personal safety, do not take this approach. Tell someone who can help.

Note: Public schools are required by law to investigate reports of bullying. TMTM What if you observe bullying? Can you help and make a difference? Answer: YES!

Dont join in the bullying conduct! Befriend the victim. Remember, bullies tend to prey on people who are alone. Walk with the victim to class. TMTM What else can you do as an observer?

Tell the bully to stop. Note: As with a victim, if there is any risk to your personal safety, do not take this approach. Make an excuse that gets the victim away from the bully. (Example: Hey Steve, the principal wants you to come to her office NOW.).

Report the incident to an adult. TMTM TELLING IS NOT TATTLING

Tattling is when a student tells an adult about another students actions simply to get him or her into trouble. Telling is when a student speaks to an

adult about another students actions because those actions were unsafe or hurt another person. TM There are many reasons to be concerned about bullies even if you are not the victim of their attacks. You can help stop bullying in your

school! TMTM
