A LOT OF TEENS DESCRIBE BULLYING AS,
"WHEN SOMEONE TRIES TO MAKE YOU FEEL
LESS ABOUT WHO YOU ARE AS A PERSON, AND YOU
AREN'T ABLE TO MAKE IT STOP."
DONE TO PROTECT YOURSELF OR ANOTHER
STUDENT FROM GETTING HURT
DONE TO GET SOMEONE IN TROUBLE
Peer Support Makes a Difference!
Have you ever thought, "It's none of my business - I should just ignore it and walk away?"
Put yourself in the other person's place. If you were being pushed around, laughed at,
gossiped about, made fun of, or ignored on purpose, wouldn't you want someone to
there for you? Know that when someone is hurting, especially emotionally,
your support as a peer is incredibly meaningful!
