Bully Free How do you define Bullying? Bullying is aggressive behavior that: (a) is intended to cause distress or harm (b) exists in a relationship in which there is an imbalance of power or strength (c) is repeated over time.
Today we will learn a specific set of skills to deal with bullying behavior. This will help everyone in our school to be on the same page and to know the steps to take if you are a victim of bullying or are a witness to bullying. Bullying in any form will NOT be tolerated at our school. Tell me how "fire" and "problem behaviors/bullying" are alike? Problem Behavior needs "peer attention" to keep going just like a candle needs oxygen to stay lit. In your group, come up with 3 ways we provide the oxygen to problem behavior and bullying situations. The fact is "WE feed the fire" and if we want a fire to go out, what do we need to do? We can TAKE AWAY the OXYGEN that keeps bullying going by:
Telling someone STOP
WALKing away from the problem behavior
Helping another student to say STOP or WALK
TALK to an adult At Whittier, we will all learn and practice these
techniques to help end bullying! If someone is directing bullying behavior to you, or someone else, tell them “STOP”

Ask the person bullying to stop. Tell them that you don’t like it, that it makes you feel bad and that what they are saying is not true.
You can also deliver the “STOP" signal if you are feeling intimidated, harassed, bullied or see someone else being bullied. Let's Practice! Sometimes, even when you have said "STOP" the bullying continues...Your next step is to WALK away When you WALK away, you remove the oxygen.

Just remember, if a flame doesn't have oxygen..
it can NOT burn. There are times when you say "STOP" and "WALK AWAY" and the behavior does not stop....It is now essentail to "TALK" to an ADULT. Let's TALK about how to TALK
Let an adult know immediately
Fill out an "incident report form "at your counselor's office
Be specific
Leave the form in the box provided.
Be prepared for the counselor or principal to process with you If you feel you are someone else is in DANGER, you must skip "STOP" and "WALK" and go straight to reporting IMMEDIATELY to the nearest ADULT and to the OFFICE Two big problems we need to work on:
"I was just kidding"
"being a bystander"
How do you know when it is teasing or bullying? What is a bystander? What keeps kids from doing the "right" thing?
At your table list 5 reasons. Is it your job to help? If not YOU, then WHO? This year I am going to challenge your character by asking "WHAT IS YOUR LIFE GOING TO BE ABOUT?" MAKE it about SOMETHING Important From this day forward, I promise to respect those around me as well as respect myself. I am SOMEBODY and I CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I can make another feel loved. I can be the helping hand that leads another back to the path of hope and aspiration. I WILL NOT STAND SILENT as others spread hatred through my community. Instead, I pledge to lift up these victims, and show them that their life matters. I WILL BE THE CHANGE BECAUSE I AM SOMEBODY.
Let's talk about different kinds of Bullying that can happen
