Is it Bullying?!?

Recently our counselors spoke with the school about bullying. Here is some of the information they shared with the kids on how to tell the difference between someone being RUDE, MEAN or a BULLY. 

Here are some strategies to use

*Ignore it

*Speak Friendly

*Walk Away

*Talk Firmly

*Report it

Remember when someone says or does something unintentionally hurtful and they do it once, that's RUDE.

 

When someone says or does something intentionally hurtful and they do it once, that's MEAN. 

 

When someone says or does something intentionally hurtful and they keep doing it- even when you tell them to stop or show them that you're upset--that's BULLYING.
