Discuss several reasons children might become bullies.
What are some reasons children might be picked on?
Some kids might be picked on simply because they aren’t like the other kids. They might not have as much money as others, or wears a different style of clothes, or might not even hang out with the “cool” kids. That shouldn’t give anybody a reason to pick on somebody. We were all born differently, raised differently and are all around just different. We don’t all like the same music, movie or food, but that’s what makes us all different.
What are three things a person can do to stop bullies? What is good about each of them? What are the drawbacks?
Who else could stop the bullying? What are some ways they can help?
Anybody can stop the bullying. Start a bullying prevention program at school. When you see somebody bullying others, tell them to stop. You might not just be doing that victim a favor, but everybody who has ever been bullied. Don’t be afraid to stand up for others. Go to an adult and report them for bullying, don’t let somebody call you a “tattle tale” because you are doing what you need to do. Get the victim away from the bully, tell them you’re sorry they did that to them and give them company.
