Bullying is when someone does something on purpose to hurt you. It can be in person like name calling, teasing, taking your things, hitting you, ignoring you or threatening you, or bullying you on your mobile or e-mail. You don’t have to put up with it. Speak to someone you trust – a friend, parent or teacher.
The bullying won’t stop unless you take action. If you think this will be hard, you could write a note, or find a time to tell them when no one will notice.
If you see other people being bullied, don’t ignore it – get help. If you bully other people you can get help too.
