Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because I know how it feels to feel as if you are alone, and no one cares about you or your feelings. My brother has been bullied, and no one deserves to be mistreated because they are different. I am very much against bullying. Speak kind words, and treat others with the same respect you would like to be shown 🙂

  • I was never bullied, but I think that bullying is mean. It really brings kids down. A lot of my friends were bullied and they didn't like it. I am lucky not to be bullied but I feel bad for those who are. Many kids are scared to come to school because of bullies. I don't want this to happen anyone. LET'S END BULLYING

  • I care because bullying is not nice 🙂

  • No one deserves to be bullied. It is unfair that there are people in this world that get brought down because they are "different". There are so many beautiful people in this world that are being bullied, because they feel insecure, lonely, lost, and afraid. If we can all learn to just be our amazing selves, then I think some of this bullying will decrease. Also, remember, be yourself because everyone else is taken. xoxo

  • I care because a student used to bully me I told my mom and nothing worked you should never bully someone who never bully you. If you bully you're going to hurt that person's feelings. Do not hurt the other person's feelings. If you do not want do be bullied then don't bully others trust me if you don't bully then you are not going to bully by no one.



    Jazmine — 10
  • Through out my elementary years I was bullied for being really skinny and tall. My "friends" were making comments of my appearance when i walked past. I brushed it off and bottled it all up inside. I didn't like myself at all they made me feel alone, but thankfully I wasn't. I found a true friend that stood up for me against them in the end. But it does get better.

I am not a teenager but I was badly bullied right through school. Today something happened that brought it all back. 20 years ago I was one of those kids that always seemed to be the target of bullies. No matter how hard I tried to fit in I always seemed to be getting it wrong. I swear I could not go a day without something happening, not a single day without somebody making it clear how ugly, useless, stupid, unpopular and basically worthless I was. The worst part was how adults facilitated it. In fact they were that bad they may as well have joined in, from the teachers “oh no that child would never do that” to the parents “my precious little angel it the kindest creature on earth and would never bully another child”. Then there were the adults who saw what was happening but didnt want to get involved, on buses, in the street, in school so many just walked past and pretended not to see anything. Its hell am not going to lie to you and prattle on about sticks and stones because I remember having that garbage said to me. What I can tell you is that if you are anything like me you will be better people than these kids will ever turn out to be. I know because I have seen how the kids who bullied me have turned out. Because you know what it is like to be treat cruelly you won’t become cruel yourselves. You won’t be an adult who thrives on the misery of others because you know what its like to be made miserable by others. You wont be one of those adults who sees a kid being bullied and walks on by because you know how it feels.
I would love to give you some amazing advice that will make them stop but you cannot be responsible for or control other peoples behaviour. I look back now and honestly wonder how I made it through but I did and became a far better person than the kids that bullied me and so will you. Oh and the thing that got me thinking about it was a few bullies from my childhood tried to cyber bully me today. Yep sometimes they don’t grow out of it but they become more and more ridiculous with age.
