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 think bullying is an awful thing. No one understand how it feels unless it has happened to you. People lose self confidence in themselves, it causes depression, and it could cause the victim to cause self harm, or even go as far as committing. If you get bullied, contact someone please. Too many people care about you for you to harm yourself. Bullies are just hurt, and it's not fair to take it out on someone else. Be strong, nothing gets better without a fight.

I care because if you bully someone you could never know what they're going through And you can make their day worse and make them feel bad about their self. People can want to change their self or even hurt their self because they were getting bullied.

I care because bullying does immense harm to a person's psychological image of themselves and the world, and it is not worth harming a person in that way.

i care because i've been bullied before bullying people is not fun. People do it because something is happening in there life that is harming there feelings. If your being bullied try talking to them. be there for them. Be there and help.

I care about bullying prevention because bullying is a hurtful thing that happens frequently. Bullying can cause any person to look down on them self, feel unwanted, or even want out of the world. To prevent any of these things from happening, we need to show interest in bullying prevention, so everyone can be happy and feel loved.
