Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.
i dont want people to feel down because of bullying because it will hurt them forever stand up to bullying
I care about bullying for many different reasons and some are because it is something that shouldn't be a thing in this society. I think this because it is something that hurts people on the inside and sometimes the outside.
I am a high school teacher and I see bullying daily. I do what I can in the classroom, but it's just not enough. I want to see change in the culture of my students. When I was young I too was bullied. I care because growing up is hard enough... I want to make a difference

I care because bullying can cause lots of damage to someone's life even when they grow up and bullying isn't right.
At age 12 all I wanted to be was myself. I had a few friends and was starting my final year at my school. Everything seemed fine at first but all of a sudden my life fell apart. All I did was score badly on a test. I’m overall a really good student and I get good marks. I managed to fix back the pieces and everything went back to normal but it didn’t last. Things fell apart again a couple of months later. I got harassed and tormented. I was called racist even though I wasn’t. As a member of the Asian community, I do get bullied a lot. It’s still currently ongoing and I’m desperate for support.
