V.Recommendation for expulsion (in severe cases) Bullying is a direct or indirect, physical or psychological intimidation that occurs repeatedly over time to create an ongoing pattern of harassment and abuse. It's our collective belief that everyone wants to feel safe and secure at school. No one wants to be teased, picked on, harassed, shamed, or humiliated, so we have some ways to help prevent these types of behaviors, as well as innovative interventions for those times when we find ourselves in a bullying situation. If you are a witness, a victim, or the bully, we will teach you strategies for dealing with bullying on this campus. “Bullying is an aggressive behavior that causes a person physical injury or psychological discomfort” (Definition, 1).

Beside the aggressive behavior, bullying also includes:
-Imbalance of power: kids who bully use their power to control or harm others
-Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once. victim bystander "Stop Bullying. No one deserves to feel worthless" Help 1st presents: Why are you the TARGET? “Makes bullies feel stronger, smarter, or better than the person being bullied” (Characterizes, 1). Bullies want to be accepted by a certain group
They see other people do it, so they think its okay
Some children feel that violence is an okay way to interact with others
Fight to defend themselves or to show that they’re strong Race
Personality characteristics
Social Status Are you a Bully? Name Calling
Rumor Spreading
Making up stories to get others in trouble
Hitting, Kicking, tripping, or pushing one another
Intimidating others
Picking on other people, even when they’re upset
Manipulating others, getting them to do things that they may not want to do Are you a victim of bullying? Children who are bullied usually don’t tell others about it. They’re afraid of what can happen. Below are the signs of victimization:

-Loss of appetite
-Excessive trips to the school nurse
-Feels lonely
-Inability to sleep, bad dreams, crying in sleep.
-Repeatedly loses clothing, money, or other valuables
-Sensitive or withdrawn when asked about his or her day Evidences
“1 in 7 Students in Grades K-12 is either a bully or a victim of bullying” (Wartik, 3).
“56% of students have personally witnessed some type of bullying at school” (Statistics, 1).
“54% of students said witnessing physical abuse at home can lead to violence in school.” (Statistics, 1).
“39% of social network users have been cyber bullied in some way, compared with 22% of online teens who do not use social networks” (Big, 1). “Nearly two-thirds (60.8 %) who experienced harassment or assault never reported the incident to the school” (Wartik, 2).
“Of those who did report the incident, nearly one-third (31.1 %) said the school staff did nothing in response” (Wartik, 2). Solution Walking with Awareness, Calm, Respect, and Confidence People are less likely to be picked on if they project a positive, assertive attitude. Leaving in a Powerful, Positive Way Setting a Boundary If a bully is following or threatening you in a situation where you cannot just leave, you need to be able to set a clear boundary. You need to say “Stop!” in face of these situations. Using Your Voice “If you do get into a situation where somebody is trying to push or hit you, you should say “Stop! I don’t like that!” Meanwhile, you should to look the bully in the eyes and speak in a firm voice, then leave and go to an adult for help” (Zande, 1). Protecting Your Feelings From Name-Calling Schools, youth groups, and families should create harassment-free zones just as workplaces should. Parents can teach children how to protect themselves from insults. Being Persistent in Getting Help Solutions are effective because... “Bullying prevention skills can protect kids from most bullying, increase their confidence, and help them to develop positive peer relationships” (View, 2). The What Help 1st! has been commissioned to train underclassmen on bullying prevention and intervention. People are less likely to be picked on if they walk and sit with awareness and confidence.

These solutions are ways to help people projecting a positive, assertive attitude, therefore, their chances of being bullied will reduce. Why are you the TARGET? Why are you the TARGET?
