We all want bullying to stop. Right?
So one way to help it stop is to figure out how we can stop bullying others, too.
See, it’s true. Once in a while, we all can become the bully. See for yourself. See if you say yes to any of these questions:
Surprising, yes? Well, if you said yes to any of these questions, you are like most of us. We aren’t perfect! Sometimes, even the nicest peeps can be unkind. The important thing is to stop now, and think about other ways you can choose to treat others.
If you answered yes to more than half of these questions, take some time today and talk to an adult you trust to come up with better ways to treat others.
Remember: try and respect each other, be kind and speak up if you see anyone around you treating another in an unkind way. We don’t all have to be best friends. But we do need to be kind and to respect each other.
Together, we can put a stop to bullying.
