What Is Bullying?

An intentional behavior that hurts, harms, or humiliates someone either physically or emotionally at school, in the community, or online. Bullying occurs at much higher rates to children with hearing loss. 

What to do if you're bullied:

DON'T FIGHT BACK

It can be hard, and some may tell you to fight back, but it’s never the answer.

CONFRONT
THE BULLY

If you feel safe, confront the bully and tell them, with confidence, to stop.

TELL
AN ADULT

 It may be scary, but an adult can help stop bullying and make things better. 

STAY
STRONG

Even acting like you aren’t afraid can help, and maybe next time you won’t need to fake it. 

How to help someone who's being bullied:

  • Become upstanders

    • Do not watch the incident and say nothing or do nothing at all

  • Report incidents to a teacher, school counselor, school principal, or parent

  • Confront the bully and/or group of bullies

    • If you feel safe

  • Help the remove the victim from the situation in any way you can 

  • If you notice someone being alone from others, invite them to join you

  • Discuss how the bully's behavior makes you feel with friends
