How Do I Deal With Bullying?

More than once this week, I have read about children getting bullied by their peers or older children? What is going on?
This is something that needs to be dealt with head-on by all parties- parents/guardians, teachers and school authorities, and of course, the victims. I don't mean to say that school is the only place where bullying takes place. Of course there are religious places and social gatherings where children can be bullied.
However, don't let anyone turn your life into a nightmare. You have to know that playful, friendly teasing isn't bullying. Bullying hurts you emotionally, is unkind and usually constant. It can involve violent threats, property damage, or someone getting seriously hurt. It can also happen during face-to-face meetings or on the internet(cyber bullying).

You must take it serious enough and tell your parents or teachers about it. It's not your fault. It's not because you look, talk or dress a certain way. It is the person bullying you who is not being nice, and you shouldn't take it.

Speaking out will ensure that you get the issue resolved. Don't keep quiet about bullying!
