    14. 15. STOP BULLIES <ul><li>Don’t Bully Others: If you are bullying people, you need to ask yourself why you are doing it. It isn’t funny and shouldn’t be fun. </li></ul><ul><li>Help Others: It is the right thing to do and it will stop if many people stand up to the bully. Standing up to a bully can start with you! </li></ul><ul><li>Speak Out: Bullies usually don’t want to talk out conflicts, but you should still let them know how you feel. </li></ul><ul><li>Ignore It: Bullies want a reaction from you. If you don’t give it to them, they will often find someone else who will react. Try to avoid bullies. </li></ul><ul><li>Get Adult Help: Very important. Stress this technique. The adults at school are committed to stop bullying. You are being strong when you get adult help because you are brave enough to take a stand against the bully. </li></ul><ul><li>Include Everyone: Try to include everyone in your class. If you see someone who is often by him/herself, ask them to do something with you once in awhile. You don’t need to be their best friend, but try to include them when possible. </li></ul>
