THE BYSTANDER’S ROLE
Even if you don’t participate in bullying, you can still
be part of the problem. One of the main reasons a
bully bullies others is because it makes them feel
good about themselves. By watching someone get
bullied, you are giving the bullies positive attention
and showing them that they are interesting when
they bully others.
Don’t be a bystander!
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
You don’t have to be a bystander. There are many
ways to help stop bullying, like:
• Tell an authoritative figure, and give them all the
evidence you have of it
• If you know someone who gets bullied, let them
know that you support them no matter what
• Avoid, and encourage other to do the same,
participating in conversations that slander someone
• If, and only if, you feel comfortable doing it, rally
your peers and let the bully know that what he is
doing is not okay
