There are 3.2 million victims of bullying each year that's a lot of bullying and so little upstanding, upstanding is when someone sees bullying and tries to help the victim. Bystanders are people who see bullying but don't try to stop bullying. If bullying is so bad why do people become bystanders? The number one reason people become bystanders is because they are afraid that the bully will bully them. Some strategies to stop bullying are to bring a group of more than 2 people and confront  the bully will most likely stop bullying people for the day.

Another tactic is to avoid the bully and the last strategy is if the bully won't stop tell adults.

The main thing bullies do is harass people. Harassment is pretty much the main form of bullying. Harassment is when someone says or does something you don’t like and they don’t stop when you say stop. There are four types of harassment. Cyber, verbal, sexual and physical.

First cyberbullying is when a bully uses electronic devices to hurt someone's feelings or bully someone. If this happens tell an adult do not touch anything.

Next verbal bullying is when someone is saying mean things about you or calling you names that you don’t like. If this happens, again tell an adult. They will help you work things out.

Third sexual bullying is when someone is touching places that make you uncomfortable and not stopping. Example when someone touches your bottom while walking by and they keep doing it after you say to stop.

Finally physical. Physical bullying is when someone hits you (or kicks you, slaps you E.T.C), and after you say to stop they don’t.

That is why we need more upstanders. One more thing. If you're an adult please show this to your kids. Also make sure that your kids are not being bullied. If they are please inform the school principal.

Children should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.
