Bully Advice for Kids


Bullies can make you feel:  Sad, depressed, angry, vendeful, scared, confused.

How a Bully Becomes a Bully

  • He is angry.
  • Someone might have bullied him in the past.
  • He has a low self-esteem. He thinks controlling you will help him feel better about himself.
  • He might have been exposed to a lot of violence in the media. (TV, books...) A lot of movies make violence look cool. But if you look closer, the "good guy" is always cooler!
  • His caretakers might have lacked in supervision. They might have been too busy to teach him how wrong it is to hurt others. Or maybe they spoiled him, making him think he can do anything he wants, including bullying!
