Kids all over the world today are getting bullied. There are many different kinds of bullying like- Cyber Bullying, Verbal Bullying, Taunting, Physical Bullying, and being left out. Bullying can make many people feel hurt or even abandoned. knowing that they are going to go somewhere and be bullied is just a terrible feeling. Many people can become bullies because they are going through hard times at home and then they take their anger out on others. Some might’ve been bullied when they were younger or are still being picked on and so they choose to do it to someone else. All over the world there are bullies, they might know that what they are doing is wrong but they still do it so they can be pleased. Children want to fit in nowadays so they listen to what their peers say. Bullying is a horrible thing to experience or do.
But we can make a change- you can STOP bullying. You just have to speak up. People might put you down and call you a snitch, but would you rather worry about this or let somebody else suffer? A few more ways are to get an adult involved in the situation, having an older person can always help. If you are scared to tell anyone you can just tell someone you trust and maybe they can tell an adult for you. Always remember that there are many people who are here to support you if you are being bullied. Remember to always treat people the way you would like to be treated.
