Bully Behavior Safety Rules - The 3 R's:
Recognize, Refuse, Report
Bullying is different from being mean or rude - Bully Behavior happens repeatedly and involves an imbalance of power.
RECOGNIZE that bullying includes: physical violence, verbal taunts, name-calling, threats and intimidation, exclusion, and sexual harassment (in person or through the Internet/through texting).
Try to REFUSE any bully behavior by being assertive. Stand up for yourself or stand up for the person being bullied.
One of the best ways to solve a bully problem is to REPORT the situation to a trusted adult.
Cyberbullying can be reported on each individual website, app, or game.
