What it is and how it can be stopped.

Defining it.

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among any kind of people that involves a real, or perceived power imbalance.

What bullying does.

Bullying victims are 2 to 9 more times likely to commit suicide.

1 out of every 7 students has been a victim or is a bully.

Around 160,000 kids skip school everyday to avoid their bullies.

90% of the teens that see social media bullying ignore it.

83% girls, and 79% of guys report being bullied at school or online.

Stop Bullies.

Tell someone- telling an adult or older figure that can help stop the nonsense will help the victims tremendously.

Ignore it- bullies only bully to hurt someone, if they are not hurting you, they will give up.

Stand up- tell the bully you are done with the abuse you are getting, do not fight, just stand up and the bully will not know what to do.
