Preventing Bullying

We can prevent bullying in our community through our words and actions. We can prevent bullying through our words by telling a bully to stop his or her behavior. For example, if we see a bully pushing someone else, we can insist that the bully stop. By speaking up and demanding the bully stop, we prevent bullying, and our words inform the bully that we do not tolerate pushing others in our community. Also, we can prevent bullying through our actions by being an upstander. An upstander is a person who chooses to take positive action to help others and make the world a better place. For instance, if we see bullying, we can walk away. By being an upstander and removing ourselves from the bullying situation, we prevent bullying because we do not give the bully an audience. This halts bullying because bullies like to show others their power and strength. To conclude, we can eliminate bullying in our society by telling the bully to stop and by being an upstander.
