Stand up for yourself. After the first time they tend to leave you alone.
Show confidence, then they have nothing to exploit and make you feel bad.
Well I've worked as a teacher for many years and even had bullies bother me at times when I was a kid.
The first thing to understand is they bother you because they are insecure so putting others down makes them feel better about themselves.
Second watching you suffer is entertaining for them. The more upset you get, the funnier for them your reaction the more they are going to bother you.
So first thing to do is (if you can) to not react. Don't let them get to you and don't ever let them make you feel you are lacking in some way. They are the ones who should be ashamed of themselves not you!
But also realize when you stay quiet they take this as a sign of weakness and will keep pushing things further.
I hope the bullying is just verbal teasing and name calling. Usually just having very clever answers to their often stupid taunts especially if you respond to them in front of everyone else such that they all start laughing at the bully's stupidity and make him/her look like an idiot will be enough to stop him/her.
If its more serious and physical abuse ( actually even if not) its good to tell a cool teacher ..someone who is very caring and well liked and has the sense to know to take this seriously and how to help you out a bit without making you look like a cry baby.
Sadly most people don't take bullying seriously at all.. which is crazy! kids need to be protected even more ..As an adult if you are harassed at work or something the laws protecting you and the consequences can be very big!
You don't want to be known as a tattletaler but when it comes to your own safety and peace of mind .thats definitely more important then what other people will think!
Bullies always pick on quiet easy targets. Also If you are pretty popular ( for the right reasons) because you are nice, honest and always good to others it's gonna make them look really bad if they bother you in anyway. Find the things that interest you most, your talents etc and try to get more involved in fun social activities in school. Even if you're shy its ok ..find the stuff you like to do and others with simular interests ..you'll make friends so fast!
At this age you should be having fun ( and studying too ;) ) and not have to worry about being harassed by some idiot every day!
I hope this helps! Do let us know how things turn out!
Im in 7th Grade so Ill help. Well first never pick the fight let them hit you first if they do, dont touch them, they will get all the trouble. Secondly, if you have a consloler or trusted adult tell them and have them handle and ask for your name not to be mentioned. Have your friends with you, the ones who stick by your side. Your friends would stay with you and that would make the bullie not to attempt a insult or fight because of witnesses and your size of group. This helped me and Im bullie free.
Are you a boy or a girl? And what kind of bullying situation? If you're a girl, tell your friends and they can help or you can tell the teachers. Also, try talking to them, like asking why're they bullying you. Or ignore it. If you're a guy, same with ignoring, getting friends to help, or telling a teacher. I don't know if compromise helps, though. You can ask them to stop, but make sure you have someone behind you who you trust, in case they might do something to you.
