I teach children how to be strong and confident to stop the bullying.

I learned that children who bully other children are often times very unhappy with themselves. The bullies are looking for ways to make themselves feel better by putting others down.

I teach children not to respond in order not to give the bullies the satisfaction of making them miserable.

I make the children understand that the bullies are using them as tools to make themselves happier.

This makes children see that there is nothing wrong with them, but rather it is the bullies who have issues.

I tell the children that they don’t have to be scared of the bullies, but they should stay away from the area where the bullies hangs out during breaks at school or in the neighborhood.

If the children make the effort to stay away and not respond, then the bullies lose interest in hurting them and they go look for other targets.

No child deserves to be bullied.
