The Issue of Bullying

We're focusing on the issue of bullying this week, with reports on some students' solutions to the problem and how some people intervene when they see it.  We're looking for your take as well:  How do you think students should respond when they see bullying?

    If I were to see someone getting bullied by another person the first thing I would do is try to stop it. I would first tell the bully that what they were doing wasn't right and how would it make them feel if someone treated them that way. I would also try to make the person that was being bullied feel better If that didn't work I would tell an adult or a teacher so that adult could try and make the bully stop. You should never do nothing because if you don't do something you're a bad as the bully.

    I think people should try to stop it and if they're too scared to stop it they should get and adult to stop it.

    i think that people should step up for people getting bullied and then tell an adult.

    When student are being/see others being bullied, they should first try to work it out calmly with the bully. But if that does not work, tell a parent or teacher. They can help get the point across to the bully.

    Bullying is a serious problem, that needs to be handled by the victims and the culprits. Basically bullying can only be stopped when everyone gets proactive and takes a stand against bullying.

    First, if you have a school counselor, then you should advise them. Otherwise, just contact a teacher or principle and talk to them about that situation. You should also try to stand up for the victim.

    I think students should like talk back to them like say stop or whatever so the bully knows that they're not scared of them also if they can't do solve the bully problem themselves theyshould tell an adult.

    If you see a students being bulled you should tell a teacher or someone you trust. Yes some students don't wont to tell teachers or parents but if you wont the bulling to stop tell a adult.

    October 11, 2011 at 6:17 pm |
  11. DAVID

    I think students should tell a parent or a teacher to stop the
    bullying and try to cheer up the person who got bullied. I will
    would personally stand up to the bully or bullies and tell them
    to stop bothering other people both verbally and physically.

    October 11, 2011 at 6:18 pm |
  12. Audrey

    Carl, How would you like it if you saw your friend or someone being hurt? Take that into perspective! I would stand up for my friend, no matter who the bully is! It doesn't matter if its your friend or not! Stand up for yourself and others!

    October 11, 2011 at 6:20 pm |
  13. Abby

    I think whenever a student sees a student being bullied they should first off stand up for the victim. And whether that works or not they should still go to a teacher or principal and inform them.

    well bullying is for people who think they have power over a single person who may be weaker and should stop and for people who are just standing whatching bullying going on they should tell as soon as they could because they could be next

    Bullying is a constant issue everywhere. Sadly, sometimes students do it without even being aware of it. Not only students either, sometimes adults do it too. It's not much to ratiocinate about. If you wouldn't want it done to you, don't do it to others. If you see someone being bullied, why would you just walk by and ignore it? How would you feel if you were the one being harrased and someone looked at you in the eyes and just walked away? Moreover, there shouldn't be any need to harass someone in the first place. Everyone has the right to be treated equally and you don't just take that away from someone. Not everyone is the same as you, of course. Just because someone is a different religion, tedious, smart, or anything else doesn't mean they can't be treated with respect. Thus, bullying is not needed anywhere at any time.

    I think that when kids see bullying they should either tell an adult or they should go over to the kid bulling and say hey why are you bullying him/her how would you like it if I did that to you. Or they could just go over and say please stop bullying him/her.

    October 11, 2011 at 7:03 pm |
  17. Sammy

    I concur with most people with the fact that bullying can only be stopped if you stand up for yourself (if you are being bullied), or stand up for other individuals who are being picked on.

    Actions speak louder than words. Reactions speak louder than actions. Think about it before you do anything.

    When a student sees another student being bulied instead of just ingnoring it they should go to a teacher or another adult in the school to and tell them what they saw and ask them to stop it.

    October 11, 2011 at 7:46 pm |
  20. callista

    bullying should not happen. they should put more teachers in the hallway to make sure bullying shouldnt happen. even at my school the bulling is terrible and i really want to stop it

    I get bullied in school pretty much every day. As the students in yesterday's show stated, a lot of it is social-based. Bully to not be bullied. If you bully others, 'popular' people seem to like you more. I tend to ignore the bully, and I go straight to guidance counselors after every incident. Being bullied is not acceptable behavior, and schools should start taking it more seriously.

  22. Shreya

    Carl, how would you feel when one of your best freind gets bullied and you don't do anything about it? Wouldn't you feel bad for him? I think you should stop bullying if you see one happening that second, because you could save a life and a feeling by doing this. You should first tell a teacher or a adult and then you can fight for them!

    October 11, 2011 at 7:52 pm |
  23. Keshal

    I think bullying is a worldwide problem. First of all bullies sometimes do this to people to make themselves better. THe victims didn't do anything to the bully to deserve it so it should be stopped. But how? If you see someone bullied, you should intervene and try to stop it. If the bully keeps going, tell a teacher, parent or a counselor. This could really help those that haven't done anything wrong. It bothers me personally to see someone bullied because when I was younger I was bullied because of my religion. So if you see bullying, stop it from going further. If you laugh at the person, it's as bad as being a bully. Please help with this issue.

    October 11, 2011 at 7:56 pm |
  24. Alex

    When students see bullying they should only intervene with the situation, but they should tell an adult or nearby teacher to stop the bullying that is occuring.

    October 11, 2011 at 7:59 pm |
  25. melina

    If someone is getting bullied tell one of your friends or someone it's better if someone is next to you,not by your self.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:07 pm |
  26. Lauren

    Bullying is a very bad situation that keeps occuring, time and time again. Where ever you go, there is always a form of bullying. When people witness bullying, they should try to intervene. Being worried about your own safety is also crucial, so if you don't want to be put into danger, then get someone with more power than you. Defending the victim shows the person that you care, and they are not alone. Fortunately, in schools everywhere, there are teachers and staff always available. They can be very helpful in these situations. Clearly, even the smallest action can help in a very big way.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:12 pm |
  27. Leta

    i think when a student see someone bullied they should go for a audlt and tell them what going on. then leave it up to the teacher to deal with the bully

    October 11, 2011 at 8:15 pm |
  28. Rebecca

    They should tell a teacher or parent , and be careful if they interfere or step in for the person being bullied to try not to make matters worse for the kid but most of all they should always tell a teacher or a trusted adult.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:22 pm |
  29. Aman

    When you look at something like bullying most people would never take a second look at it. When it happens it front of you or to you that's when you understand.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:23 pm |
  30. divya

    If you're a person witnessing someone being bullied you should go get an adult. You should do it not because other people tell you to, but because its the right thing to do. If you are being bullied get an adult a.s.a.p

    October 11, 2011 at 8:23 pm |
  31. Clare

    Go to an adult, a grown up can help in any situation. These problems shouldn't be left alone take action when you see it or are apart of it. Don't leave it alone, something big could happen with the child being bullied, they could commit suicide and ruin their precious lives.

  33. Doha

    well, you should defenitely stand up for the person who is being bullied and if you are the one being bullied YOU should DEFENITELY not take it and stand up for yourself. Some people might say laugh it off but in my opinion that shouldn't even be an option!

    October 11, 2011 at 8:26 pm |
  34. Austin

    Hey, I've been bullied too and I think that teachers should do more to stop bullies. So should students.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:44 pm |
  35. Katherine

    I think that there is bullying that can be stopped and some that can't. First of all the teachers at my school are way to jumpy about this situation. Like lets say one of my friends was poking another they concederate that bullying and I think that ridiculous. Also I don't think its just the students bullying other students I think the teachers bully to. So next time a teacher wants to yell at someone for poking someone they need to look in the mirror.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:49 pm |
  36. Robin

    I learned this trick from my younger sister. if someone insults how you look, what you are or your I.Q. there's one simple answer- agree with them. Saying "why thank you" or "really? i haven't noticed!" or even "AWESOME! I hope I stay like this" will anger the bully. All bullies have the same thing in common- to make you unhappy. so enjoying what they say and agreeing with them, will make the bully get upset and annoyed until finally, they'll leave you alone.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:50 pm |
  37. Katie

    I agree with Katherine I think that too. At the same time as thinking well if I walked passed someone "bullying" someone else if its not like there scared for life or crying or like upset after I don't think its that big of a deal. Like I still think it maters but I think that the teachers need to stop watching for the funny stuff and start watching for the serious stuff.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:54 pm |
  38. Qinn

    I Think that bullying is wrong and that kid should stand up for other KId around them.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:57 pm |
  39. Matthew

    If you are being bullied step up for your self or walk away and tell at least an adult. See what other people can do. If it's really getting in your way at least tell the person who is bulling you tell their parents they should try and talk to he/she to stop.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:58 pm |
  40. evan

    i think bullying is the worst thing that can ever happen to you so if you ever get bullied or see bullying tell someone your friend, your teacher, and most of all your parents.

    October 11, 2011 at 8:59 pm |
  41. Spencer

    I think bullying is unfair to other people and what if the bully says "I dont care how people treat me everyone in this school is whimps!"? I think the bully should be expiled from the school forever no matter what.(or the district)

    I've been bullied before. It makes me feel like I want to move to Africa. It is not a good thing.

    October 11, 2011 at 9:10 pm |

    i think there should be more people standing up to the bullys

    October 11, 2011 at 9:10 pm |
  44. max

    I think people should tell a bully off if they are or aren't the victim. If they are not trying to stop the bully, they are being almost as bad as the problem itself. Stand up for yourself and others.

    October 11, 2011 at 9:12 pm |
  45. sasha

    Students should stand up for each-other and not just be bystanders, if every-one always stood up for each other we wouldent have as many bullies.

    October 11, 2011 at 9:12 pm |
  46. Reese

    Bullying is a huge problem. It is that simple, and we should do what we can to stop it. Everybody has bullied or been bullied, so it is everybody's problem to solve.

    October 11, 2011 at 9:17 pm |
  47. melissa

    I think that who ever got bullied should stand up alone or with friends .The bully needs to be taken care of.

    October 11, 2011 at 9:35 pm |
  48. javier

    You should tell any adult as soon as possible. They can help the victim if you tell them. If you don't tell any adult you can have many consiquences.

  52. Natasha

    I believe people need to learn to get over bullying and that a lot of the time it's just words of people "sticks and stones may break bones but words will never hurt me". People are very selfish thinking that other people will worry about their problems when everyone has their own problems to worry about,

    October 11, 2011 at 11:04 pm |
  53. Joey

    I think they should go tell the authorities, or an adult to report bullying. It's not cool to bully someone if they are different, they could turn out to be really nice and want to be friends with you.

    Hi everyone, hi JACOB
    I do not understand your idea in video clip CNN Studentnews
    " In school, I`m - it`s pretty much a race to the top of the - of the social ladder. By getting to the top, you have not only self- confidence (ph) but you view yourself as one of the important people of your school. And that is - that`s the reason why bullying occurs."
    Would you like to explain to me?
    In my past, sometimes i was bullied when i was 8 years old. I think that children should be near other children, their friend, their sister and brother. Necessary, every parents should keep a keen eye on their chidren and prevent them from danger.
    We must aware that bullying is the worst thing affects whole us life.

    (I'm from South Korea)
    All schools over the world has many situations related to bullying. I think we should respond that bad kind of happening. Bullying students can hurt us when we respond, but if we not respond to them or don't care about bullying, there will be more hurting situations. We need courage to respond to them.

    October 12, 2011 at 8:02 am |
  56. mary

    I think sudents should respond to bullying by ignoring it because they will see it does not bother them then they will get tired of it and they will stop,but if it goes too far they need to tell.

    October 12, 2011 at 9:17 am |
  57. Mrs. Knopf"s class

    If you see someone getting bullied, get a group together and stand up to the bully. Make it clear that it is wrong and that they won't have any friends left if they keep it up. 🙂

  58. Knox

    I think that the school board has raised the bar on bullying and is blowing it out of proportion. I've been "bullied" before(someone called me a name), but I always shake it off with a slick retort. When it gets violent, then, and only then should someone intervene. This nation's school board are softening up their kids. I think that you may not agree with me, but when a kid starts crying when someone calls him "stupid", don't you think that kid's in for a hard life? Moderation should be practiced, and toughening up is no exception.

    i think thast bullying is not ok some kids bully because they had a bad day or some thing it is not ok because what if the other kid did nothing

  60. cassie,chelsea,alex,saholly

    We think that the best way to handle a bully is to act as a united front. There's a possibility that the bully will turn on a single person, but less of a chance if a group of students stand up against the bully. An important thing to know about bullies is that most of the reasons they bully is because they could be seeking attention, or they are trying to use you as a way to feel better about themselves. If you stand up against the bully together as a group, the bully will feel weakened and stand down.

    My brother is a bully to all my friends.They tell their mom and he gets in trouble, but he still keeps bulling. When I tell my dad my brother gets scared and stops.

  63. Mr. Sienko's Class

    Tell the teacher first, if it continues, go to a counselor or principal. If it continues in or outside of school, tell a parent or adult. To avoid bullying, you could travel in groups, walk away when being bullied, or stand up for yourself by telling them that they are being mean and rude.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:11 pm |
  64. Students at The Vanguard School

    You should always try to help someone that is being bullied. Bullying needs to end.
    Teachers also need to be more aware of bullying and need to be willing to stop it and advocate for victims as well.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:19 pm |
  65. Ms. S's Class from BTE

    My class is having a discussion about what we can do to stop bullying. Here are our ideas:
    1. Don't join in on bullying, tell someone who can help

    2. When you see someone is getting bullied, you could say:
    "Stop bullying them, it is not nice."
    "Treat others you want to be treated."
    "How would you feel if someone did this to you?"

    3. Keep the bully away from the victim.

    4. Ignore the bully. Don't give them the negative attention.

    5. Never take the first hit. Only protect yourself if you have to.

    Also, our class wants to say that we think you are great!

    October 12, 2011 at 12:19 pm |
  66. Nathan

    You should just tell your principal and the might just go away if others step in and help you,the victim.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:31 pm |
  67. Arely

    I think that people should stop bullying when they see it . Carl, How would you feel if you were bieng bullied and every one just kept looking at you and never stopped it? People Have no right to be worried about something like this , especially if they didnt do anything.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:31 pm |

    one good solution is fighting back ok thamk yu

    October 12, 2011 at 12:32 pm |
  69. Haley

    I think that anyone that is a witness of bullying shouldn't step in but should go tell an adult. It is important to remember to:
    -see no hate
    -hear no hate
    -speak no evil
    Bullying is evil!

    October 12, 2011 at 12:32 pm |
  70. Noah

    I think they should use self defence and fight back

    October 12, 2011 at 12:34 pm |
  71. Will

    A person does not bully someone because they have a personal vendetta against the person being bullied, they bully someone for personal reasons, to increase their social standings or to seem tough. They abuse others for they're own gain and the victim is usually just the easiest target.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:35 pm |
  72. Andrew

    I think bullying is wrong in all ways, if there is a kid being bullied then try to stop, then tell a their parents/get a teacher/or try to get them some sort of help to prevent future bullying.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:35 pm |

    Bulllying is bad.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:36 pm |
  74. Macy

    To me the only reasons people bully is because they are jelous of that person, they do it to make themselves feel good, or they do it because they are being bullied at home.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:37 pm |
  75. Russell

    I get bully two a week and i think we need teacher's to stand in the hall and kids stand up for each other i hate it when I'm bulled or my friends are bulled it makes ne mad.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:37 pm |
  76. Corina

    I think its wrong because I have been through it and its not a good feeling. I think everyone should be treated with respect and those bullies dont know what their getting into. They will have serious consequences.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:38 pm |
  77. trent

    I think that they should fight back and walk away. Most kids that have been bullyed have gone through life hateing it or it gets so bad that they cant take it any more and kill themselfs.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:38 pm |
  78. Emma-Lee

    I am your typical bullying target. Braces, glasses (sometimes), overweight, unpopular, and i have been bullied. There was actually a boy who bullied me, my friends, and my family, and we never let him get to us so he stoped targeting us. My friends, my sisters, and myself have all vowed that if one of us ever starts bullying, than we'll tell each other to cut it out and not stop, because we don't want to be like the people who bullied us. We also always stand up for the ones around us being bullied because we know how it feels and we wish someone had stood up for us. I think bullying is bad because 1) you hurt another person who has done nothing to deserve the way you're treating them, and 2) someday, you'll look back and seriously regret hurting someone like that.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:40 pm |
  79. Bailey

    Whenever someone makes a bad verbal comment to someone and everyone laughs, I'm the one who doesn't laugh. But some bullies really are intimidating. But if you have been bullied, just remember that you are always stronger if you keep what you want to say to yourself. If it never wears off, always tell a teacher, or your parents. They will always understand. If your friend is being bullied, help them out but revenge can't always work. You hurt someone, they'll hurt you harder. On the last note, remember it's one person! -Mind over matter.-

    I think when kids see kids being bullied they should try to stop the bulling and if the bully doesn't stop then call an adult for help.

  81. Jason

    I think that when a bully bullies it means that they have had nobody in their life. If theydo have somebody in their life... they must not be a very good influence.

    bullying is something that is a physical and mental issue colliding in many children's lives. in stead of telling people about it we should help the ones that are suffering in the problem. many commit suicide because they are afraid of telling thier parents. bullying should stop because believe me i was bullied once and its not a good expierience.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:45 pm |
  83. Andrea

    the issue of bullying is very common but usually when you see somebody getting bullied you want to jump in and protect who ever the person is. in my opinion i think that there shouldnt be any reason to be sacred , it happens but thats why you always protect yourself at all times no matter what the case may be. if your scared let an administrator or ur mom know. NEVER LET YOURSELF GET BULLIED AROUND. NO MATTER WHAT ALWAYS STAND UP FOR YOURSELF.

    October 12, 2011 at 12:46 pm |
  84. Brittany

    How can you stop bullying? Well if I see a child being bullied then of course i will try to stop it immediately. Being bullied is not nothing to laugh about. You may never know you can be put in the same pradicament and then you won't think it's funny when people are laughing and picking at you. So how can bullying be stopped. Well i was thinking there should be a program for the bullies. The cause of bullies is a child in either junior high or senior high pick on other people for their self-confidence. Seminars should be held for these children with low self-esteem and confidence.

    Every day thousands of teens wake up afraid to go to school. Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students, and it has everyone worried, not just the kids on its receiving end. Yet because parents, teachers, and other adults don't always see it, they may not understand how extreme bullying can get out of hand. Two of the main reasons people are bullied are because of appearance and social status. Bullies pick on the people they think don't fit in, maybe because of how they look, how they act (for example, kids who are shy and withdrawn), their race or religion, or because the bullies think their target may be gay or lesbian. There are many ways bulling can be stopped ,find a friend and talk to them let them know whats going on. Usually the bullier is going thorugh there own problems at home so try to find out why the person is doing this. Really Some bullies attack their targets physically, which can mean anything from shoving or tripping to punching or hitting, or even sexual assault. Others use psychological control or verbal insults to put themselves in charge. For example, people in popular groups or cliques often bully people they categorize as different by excluding them or gossiping about them . They may also taunt or tease their targets Verbal bullying can also involve sending cruel instant or email messages or even posting insults about a person on a website ractices that are known as cyberbullying. Talk to someone you know and fight for yourself.

    I was bullied when i was younger and i didnt do anything about it. But i am glad it stoped. I am really glad that people are trying to put a stop to bullying. I just encourage that people do keep on trying to put a stop to bullying. i think the main reason for bullying is that there jelliuos of someone else so they chose to be mad or of what happens in their life and around. i just think that bullying is just pure rude.The person who is bullying should stop because whatever is going on in their life is something that they need to take care of theirself .

    I Believe that bullying should be stoped at the momment because if you dont step up or talk to someone about you getting bullied it will continue and it can get worse. People arent meant to be treated like that no matter where your from, your race or sex. Step up to the person whos bullying dont stay quiet about it and if your afraid of doing so find someone you trust that can help you out, either a close personal friend, family member or teacher. Dont ever let someone abuse you verbally or physically no matter who it is, adult or teenager they have no right on abusing you because if they do something like that, they have no respect for themselves or their family and friends.

    Dont be afraid!
    Have hope!
    Speak up!
    and
    Never take yourself for Granted.

    Doing nothing is being a coward. Don't just sit and watch. Instead stand and help. Console the victim and guide them to tell an adult. No one deserves to be bullied or harrassed!!!

    Bullying is never a good thing, kids should better understand what they are doing to others when they bully and how it feels. Parents should take a better part in the raising of their kids and not leave it to teachers and school, when bullying happens the parents should be informed and brought in to try and curb the problem.

    I have been bullied before. One way you can cope with it is to tell someone you trust and they can help you deal with it.

    It I saw bullying, I would try to help him or her out by telling the teacher. It's just wrong to bully others.

  93. Essie

    Kids that see bullying in school should tell a teacher what they saw. If they try and stop it then the bully may start bullying them and could cause problems. They should also tell their parents so the parents can get involved to see what is being done about it.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:10 pm |

    i think that the shool districs should, and can put forth more effort into helping the schools permenantly get rid of bullying. and i really like that they made october anti-bullying month.

    I think people should atleast try and help the one that is being bullied not physically, but also mentally as well. Kids that are bullied may not seem as if they are because they hide it. They are scared of saying something to someone for they think it may make their situation worse. If anyone notices a kid being bullied, they should go and tell someone about what is going on and what the situation is.

    i think people should stop bullying because its mean, hurt full, and it could be deadly. i was bullied before and it hurt me a lot. it also felt bad for me very much. i watched a video, last year.it was called Bullied. i felt how the boy felt, i felt it in my soul. the whole video made me cry so much.

    My solutions to this issue is when your getting bullied just walk away and go tell someone.Also when you see someone getting bullied go stand up for the victim.And victims when your getting bullied just walk away dont fight back.Always tell someone.Don't get upset if someone pickes on you just walk away and act like you dont care and they will stop.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:24 pm |
  102. Lylah!

    Well first I think that kids should not get involved they should tell a parent or just tell a tell your favorite teacher even if you don't get in there in there and get in a fight the person will know you put effort into helping them.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:25 pm |
  103. Alexa

    I think bullying really needs to be stopped and ways to do that are: tell an adult you fully trust, stand up to bullying, and never become a bully if that has happened to you.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:25 pm |
  104. Leanne

    If someone is being bullied, you should try to help the kid being bullied, and be nice, or try to make friends with him/her. Because no one wants to see the issue excel to where someone gets seriously hurt.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:26 pm |
  105. Dawson

    My solution if you are getting bullied, Is to immediately to go and tell adult. because if you do, it can be solved a lot safer. Also if you get bullied you can just walk away. Always, you will want to tell an adult. If you never want to bullied then don't bully others and you wont get bullied. Because, after all you don't want bullies around you or anybody else.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:26 pm |
  106. Kaylan

    I think that anyone can prevent bullying by not being a bully, and standing up for victims. If people see bullying in action they should tell an adult, and support the victim. When everbody does this bullying will be reduced.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:27 pm |
  107. Rebekah

    If students see someone being bullied, it doesn't matter who it is, they have to stand up for ther person being bullied. It is not fair for anyone to be bulied and it is not fair for them to be defenceless. Some people can't stand up for themselves and that is where bystanders come into play. You see the CNN Heros segment on CNN student news. Anyone can be a hero by standing up to bullying.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:27 pm |
  108. Katya

    I think if you see someone being bullied, you should first try to find an adult. If there isn't an adult around then you should try to talk to the bully and convince them bullying is uncool and unpopular.If that doesn't work than you and the victim of the bully should walk away with your head held high.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:28 pm |
  109. Cristal

    If you see someone getting hurt you should tell a teacher or a freind.Sometimes you can talk to the bully and tell them to stop.Stand up for the victum.Don't just sit there and watch someone grt hurt.I am sure the victum will say thank you to you for standing up for them.

    October 12, 2011 at 1:30 pm |

    I think if you see someone getting bullyed you should tell an adult,or stand up for the victim,and also try to talk to the bully.If you jest stand there and cheer or do nothing your as bad a the bully.

    Being bullied is not ok. If people are being bullied other people should stand up for them. Carl what would you do if you saw one of your co-worker getting bullied? I will stand up and help my friends get thought it and hope it doesnt happen again.

    To stop bullying we need to give a bigger punishment to the bullies. They probably will not do anymore if there is a terrible punishment put on them.

    When a student sees bullying, I think that they should stand up for the person being bullied. Students should also use the golden rule; "Treat others the way you want to be treated".

    Carl, we think that students should try stopping the bullying or intervening right away. Stand up for that victim! Don't be afraid if they will retaliate against you. Even if it's your close friend, it's still wrong and still needs to be addressed.

    October 12, 2011 at 2:05 pm |
  121. Merkys, Ashwakh, Josephina

    Students have to stand up for themselves and others. At the very least they need to tell a teacher or an adult because if they don't, the problem will get bigger and BIGGER!

  122. Rylee

    All around the world, children, teens, and even adults are getting bullied. And it is not ok.! Children and teens deal with it more than than adults, but it is a serious issue. You can read news stories on the internet about how some kids get bullied to the limit and they kill themselves.! These kids are suffering about of pain and hurt. A lot of children will come home crying their eyes out because of being bullied. A lot of them will say to themselves "what did i do.?"
    I will see kids around school getting bullied and i will go up to the person bullying them and i will tell them to stop.

    October 12, 2011 at 2:20 pm |
  123. ~ Emily

    When someone sees bullying i think they should go tell a adult who has authority and/ or go up to the bully and tell them to stop. Even though if they arent actually touching them there words and there actions do hurt them in the inside and out. They should go up to the bully and tell them that they should stop and it isnt nice to bully because of their apperence, or etc. Ask them why? Ask them why are they bullying someone when the victiam didnt do anything to them in the first place.

    I think kids should stick up for themeselves. Its not right for someone to get made fun of and just let the bully get away with it. If i was the person getting bullied i would say leave me alone and just stop. Don't start a fight just say what you think is right.

    October 12, 2011 at 2:27 pm |

    October 12, 2011 at 2:27 pm |
  127. Alexus

    I think to stop bullying is to figure out the source. To see why some people don't stand up or think that it is okay . To get to understand the bully and why he/she might be bullying these people. You need understand the issue. Talking to kids see if they know, and what they are doing. Don't have those long lictures about this topic thats boring and it just won't teach us anything or understand what is going on. You can talk to our parents ,but our parents can ground us, take away stuff, but stopping us, they won't have a certaintly about this topic. It won't make us stop bullying. It might evern make it even more worse. Directly to the kids and understanding their reasons why that let it go on and why they don't say anything? Why in their minds it was okay to do all of the thing that they are doing now.Understanding the Kids and getting the ideas from what their point of veiw is. Educating them will help resolve this issue. Make it even better.

    First off, i belive that if a child is being bullied for ANY reason, they should tell a Teacher. The wrong way to stop from being bullied, is to get back at them, by bullying them. Always tell a Teacher at school, or an adult you know in public bullying. I know that, because i was once bullied.

    October 12, 2011 at 5:05 pm |
  131. Elizabeth

    Bullying is just wrong! If you want to bully you are just asking for trouble .
    If you can not stop it you should tell an adult . If you are afraid to tell an adult tell a friend or a really close relative. Let me ask you this Carl how would you deal with bullying?

    October 12, 2011 at 5:05 pm |
  132. Abi

    Bullying is an issue in all schools, no matter what. Everyday I see people putting others down. If you see someone being bullied you should speak up and let an adult know. You should also stand up for a person being bullied because it helps if they see that their peers actually care enough to help them out.

    I think that it's good that other students stand up for kids who are bullyed and it's not fair that kids have to get bullyed even thow they didn't do anything to start it.

    After attending multiple bullying trainings, it has been made clear that a student should tell an adult, a teacher, or an administrator if they see any bullying situation go on. Although it may seem pointless, it can make a difference. Unfortunately, many kids commit suicide every year due to bullying situations that weren't reported or known of. Being a bystander is not helping anyone. Depending on the severity of the situation, it may be possible for the student to simply talk the the target and the aggressor and ask them to stop. Intervening and telling an adult can help make a difference in someone's life. Obviously, stepping in and reporting a situation can make a huge impact in someone's life.

    If you witness someone getting bullied, you should tell a close family member, friend or teacher. However, at the moment just ignore it or if you feel comfortable, by all means, stand up for yourself!

    October 12, 2011 at 9:18 pm |
  163. Sam

    Bulling makes you stronger, or weaker. You have to make sure it doesn't go wrong. You need to confront them as soon as the bullying occurs. If they know your defensive they back off, feeling violated. If you take it an make your self look weak, you've lost the war. Your fear feed there fire.

    After reading the blog post, kids should first get an adult or an administrator to stop the bullying from occurring. They shouldn't intervene themselves because hey can get hurt and be another victim. The victims also have to play their part and tell their parents when they're being bullied so they can talk to the principle about it while the student is in class. Staying silent is never an option for the victim or the bystander because if the kid doesn't talk then the bullying won't stop. Although, if a kid is mentioning to a teacher or principle that they are being bullied, the student has to make sure that the adult will keep the complaint anonymous so the bully doesn't take revenge out at the student later on. Clearly, standing up to bullying is the only way to stop it.

    Hey Carl, i have dealt with bullying since the 4th grade. If you know kids who have experienced bullying like I have, help them out, talk with them, show them that you care. Because all it takes for bullying to end for one kid is to a have a friend you can count on.

    If i ever saw a bully, then the first thing i want to do is to stop it and not let it happen again. I will try to make them feel good about their self. After everything is done will then tell the teacher so that less bullying happens.

    People should suck up their pride and start to work together with kids that are ostracized everyday, even the popular kids, and they should become friends with them to let them know and feel that they are not alone.

    If you're there when a kid or someone is getting bullied you should at least help the person in trouble and if that doesn`t work tell an adult as quick as you can

    When I see children getting bullied, it hurts inside. Don't be shy...I know most everyone has been bullied/been a bully. Since most of us know how much it hurts, you should tell a teacher, supervisor, or guardian. This is better than going over and telling the bully to stop. If you did that, you could be the one ending up getting hurt or in trouble. Whatever you do, just remember to stay on the safe side.

    October 12, 2011 at 10:36 pm |

    Bullying has a long term effect on somebody emotionally as well as mentally. Any kind of bullying is wrong. If you see bullying put yourself in that persons shoes. What if that happened to you? how would you feel? Tell someone immediately if you see bullying. Don't be scared. Bullying is not cool and its not funny. It hurts people in a bunch of ways! And don't be scared to help that person being bullied. Take a stand!

    October 12, 2011 at 10:38 pm |

    I think the reason students bully other students is because someone has bullied them them and if someone would go to a parent or guardian and tell them the have been bullied than they can bring in the bully and see what is going on and stop the problem right there.

    If a student witnesses another being bullied, they should put themselves in the victim's shoes. Nowadays, bullying isn't just physical bullying; It's cyber bullying also, on turfs like Facebook or wherever the students like to gather online. Whether it's online or in real life, you should always tell a trusted adult before you intervene, because, in the end, it solves the problem faster than if you intervene right away.

    I think people should not just stand there and watch it happen what good does that do stand up and show the bully that we are not afraid to stand up for our classmates and friends.

    I believe that bullying is wrong, and that schools should crack down on bullying. Bullying can harm victims feelings which can lead to issues outside of the original problem.
    Teachers and parents can help correct this issue by addressing it as soon as it is brought to their attention. However, most of the time the victim attempts to hide the problem. If the victims of bullying would just step forward, the issue could be addressed properly and would minimize the damage done to both the bully and the victim.

    No matter if it is 'Phisical' or 'Mental' bullying, you should always stand up for one another. Wether its a gossip, punching, or even notes, you should take defence on the bullied. If you are the bullyer then you will suffer high consiquences. Stand up for one another, think of how the victam is feeling, and DEFEND! Yell, call for help, do anything to help get and adults attension. If you hear any gossip from anyone, don't pass it on. Be kind to the new (new students), help them when they need it. Always be ALERT!

    If the teenagers successfully stop bullying people, this may cause a ripple effect and help the entire country, making the bullying stop almost entirely.

    I've been bullied before and what i do is to tell an adult. This is called repoting. Once i told an adult everything went great after.

    If you are getting bullied is to say stop and stand up for yourself. If you see someone getting bullied tell them to stop or tell an adult. An adult will take care of the bully and give him or her conequences. If you are the person being bullied after the fight tell an adult. When you are getting bullied don't act scared or the bully will have more power to do more mean things to you.

    When a student sees someone bullying, they shouldnt just stand and stare. They should at least walk up and say "please stop bullying him/her" Or even better tell your school principal about the bullying issues. they just have to think what did they do to you,

    October 13, 2011 at 12:03 am |
  185. Laura

    When you see someone being bullied do whatever you can to stop it. Tell your teacher, principle, counselor, or any adult. Nobody deserves to be bullied for any reason. The bullies of today could be the ignorant, and violent people of our future! Every person alive has the same rights as everybody else whether there gay, African American, mentally challenged, or "uncool." A simple act of hey leave him alone" could really change someones life. Think of all the teenagers who have taken their lives do to bullying.

    I think the person who sees the bullyyng going on they should just go quickly and go and get an adult or teacher or the person who see bullying going on should go and help they should help each other/

    I currently attend high school and i believe our generation needs leaders to help mold us into a positive generation. With people standing up to such social injustices as bullying we present true Patriosm. We help give others voices by defending them and we set the bar for everyone else to "step up" and challenge a social ladder based on destroying others to win. Hopefully people will stand out of their comfort zones to stand up and therefore make our generation better and make America better. And that is worth all the power in the world.

    i think that bullying is all about feeling good about yourself and most people who bully have either been bullied or are just so insecure to the point where they feel the need to be bigger than their peers. I feel that if everyone took a stand and stood up to the people who are bullying them, and if you stood up for them they might feel there is a need for them and that someone really cares about them. There could be a lot less suicides and more people would have self confidence.

    At school we learn we should tell the adults who can help.
    In my case I don't think I'm brave enough to fight against the bulllies. So I tell the student, who's being bullied, to not get along with them. But I also think it's really important to tell the adults.

    I think that whenever someone sees a person being bullied. they should tell someone. Teachers and prinicpals are perfect because they want to help and make things right. Bullying is a very bad thing Carl, very bad.

    I think the issue of bullying is if a parent never bonds with they're child or if
    a child is shy and doesn't know how to act social around other kids.

    If a student sees someone being bullied the student should try to stop the bully because what if you were being bullied would you like someone to help you? I'm pretty sure the answer would be yes!!

    If you see someone being bullied ask for help or you should at least tell the bully to stop. its not fun to be bullied so all the bullies should just leave who ever your bulling alone in less you want to be picked on yourself.

    I really think if people see bullying going on then they need to tell someone that way it doesn't get fatal... if you are being bullied you need to tell someone before it leads to everyone picking on you

  199. Brody

    I think that bullying is just a thing that people do to look cool. So those who think bullying is bad, try to stop it or go to a teacher. If you see somebody who looks sad, ask them why and if they were bullied. Ask them to go report it. Enforce this and stop bullying everywhere.

    If my friend or I had a bully, I would try to figure his/her reason for bullying. At the same time I will tell him/her that what he is doing is wrong. If the attempt fails and he/she continues to bully my friend or I then I will bring it up to an adult.

    October 13, 2011 at 8:21 am |
  201. Megan

    Students shouldn't stop bullying physically, punching, hitting, ect, but they should verbally intervene. This will show the person who is being bullied to stand up for themselves, and know they can do the same thing by verbally interacting in a situation where they want someone to stop. Simply by saying " Come on, just stop it."

    October 13, 2011 at 8:25 am |
  202. Jade

    When seeing a bully in action, you can do a lot to prevent it. One thing you may do is tell any adult around you, a parent, teacher, administrator. Anyone. Secondly, you can try to intervene by pulling the victim away from the bully. One thing you should never do is start bullying the bully! That just leads to more conflict.

    When someone sees bullying I think they should react very strongly. First you ask the bully to stop. If the bully doesn't stop then you should tell someone you trust or the nearest adult.

    I think that students should stand up for their friends and their peers when they see bullying. I've been bullied before and I wished some one would have stood up for me. Now when I see kids being bullied I'm not going to be the person watching the whole thing go down. I would stand up for others, and hope they stand up for me if I'm being bullied. This is a perfect example of the golden rule. If you would want some one to stand up for you, then stand up for them first.

    I think bullys should stop it's not only hurting other people but also their grades they go from a straight a student to c's I think it should stop.Also the victims don't tell an adult because they get teased about it.

    October 13, 2011 at 10:15 am |
  213. Rosalinda

    I think that the kids that are watching someone being bullied should stand up for that person.They should tell a teacher near by or just by your self go up to the bully and say to leave the kid alone.

  214. Jordan

    I think that bullying is a big issue for middle and high school. And when students see other students being bullied, they usually ignore it and don't think about it. Students should stick up for each other, because if they stand up, the bully will back down.

    October 13, 2011 at 10:16 am |
  215. Alexis

    When somebody is being bullied it usually is really hard to speak, and stand up for themselves. But they should try to reach out. Tell a teacher, a parent, or even a friend. They will support you and work to stop the problem.

    My friend was being bullied once so I stood up for him and told the bully to back off. After that he told the teacher. Then, when I was being bullied he stood up for me. I think that you should treat people how you want to be treated

    October 13, 2011 at 10:24 am |
  222. Taylor

    Well, seeing bullying is a federal offense, if you witness bullying, telling an adult would be a good choice. However, it would be better off to call the police and leave an anonymous note or call. The person bullying someone else should be arrested, NOT just suspended, because bullying IS against the law.

    October 13, 2011 at 10:33 am |
  223. Carli

    Kids don't understand that the little things are the things that hurt the most. Bullying doesn't make you cool, your making yourself look bad. If you see someone getting bulled, step up and try to help. Treat others how you want to be treated.

    I think that bullys have no brain! If you are being bullied or see someone being bullied stand up for them or if that dosen't work, tell a parent or teacher that you know. DON'T TELL A STRANGER!!!

  225. Gabe

    I think students who witness bullying both cyber bullying and bullying at school should try to intervene in some way. They can go tell their parents and have their parents call the school and tell them what their child has witnessed. The quicker way would be for the student who witnessed it to go right to a teacher, coach or a school staff member and tell them. If there is no one around and no one to go to the only other thing you could do is try to stop it yourself and help the kid that is getting bullied.

    October 13, 2011 at 11:18 am |
  226. Chris

    I think whenever you see someone being bullied, you should go tell an adult. If you are being bullied non-physically you should just ignore the person and walk away, if the person starts to follow you try to go to an adult you know and tell them what the person has been saying to you.
    If a person starts do physical things either try to get out of the situation or yell for help. If that does not work try to defend yourself until either someone comes and helps or the beating is over. Usually if it's physical it's not going to be much of a beating, but if it is bad try to get adult after. If you think you are a potential threat travel in packs of friends the more the better because if a bully see's that there is a lot of people they might back off or just say rude things to you.

    Well I think that being bullied is horible. Also cyber bullying because once its on there its not going away,but at least its non-physical. physical bullying is bad to and if you see someone getting bullied get a teacher or if its you when they walk away go get a teacher or if its out side at home some were get your mom or your dad to help. So if you are a bully or a victim you know how it is or how it fells to do if someones getting bullied step up and help, these are some tips.

    I do not like bullying because it can hurt many people and thier feelings. In our school we talked about Rachels Challenge which talked a lot about bullying. I at my school we are tyring to prevent all of the bullying going on in our school. Our school is very against bullying and hope to stop it. So all in all bullying should really stop, and for those who are bullying should rethink thier actions.

    I do not like bullying becuase It's just not right. At our school we are trying to get rid of all the bullying. Our school is doing rachles challenge and its all against bullying. I think of bullying as picking on someone.

    the truth of the matter is that everyone gets bullied no matter what. but only the people that take it to heart, or the ones that take it to far are the ones that end up having problems.

    Carl, The reason why Bullies well, Bully is because it makes them feel better about themselves. A way to STOP that is to tell them to stop or go tell a parent/teacher! In today's society that is probably the best way to stop bulling! Don't let Bully's bully you around. It's time to stop bulling!!!

    If you see a problem with bullying happening, tell a teacher that you trust and don't the the person being bullied believe what the bully is saying about them. Don't intervene unless the bully is only insulting the victim and not doing any violent activities.

    October 13, 2011 at 12:38 pm |
  239. Deanna

    With the amount of violence in television today, bullies probably believe they are making themselves "cool" by insulting and hurting people. At my school, when we see people being bullied, we stand up for them. In my district, we have a hotline for people being bullied, and you can call in, being completely anonymus and report a problem. We have busted our shool's bullies by using this hotline. If there is a lot of bullying going on at your school, suggest that the school have a certain phone line for the victems of bullying.

    October 13, 2011 at 12:47 pm |

    i think that the school should give referrals to the bullies, also i think that the school should make an anti-bulling club at school, also the school should make stricter rules!!!!!!

  241. Charlee

    I used to be a bully until someone stopped me and stood up for the victim. At first, I resented her, but now I see that everyone in my school is much happier now! So, if you see someone bullying others, stand up for their victims!!! And remember, even if you think that you're just "playing around" with your friends, you could be hurting someone, emotionally!

    October 13, 2011 at 12:52 pm |
  242. Donte

    i think that people who bully should get one of three things the first is a warning tell them to stop and tell them why; the secound is the schools rules should be way more strict and suspending after the warning if is dosent help; the third should be a ticket becuse the bully is physicly and emotionaly abusing some one and a ticket would get the point across

    October 13, 2011 at 12:56 pm |
  243. DAISY

    I think that bulling should be stop and here are some ways it can: they can make an anti bullying club that is that they can show kids how they defend there self if they get bullied; another way the schools should give zero talorance no buling rule; another way is to they should be some student police or staff that should walk aroud campus and if they seen bulling they should get a ticket.

    I think students should intervene. Bullies will never take adults seriously and they think they can always get away with it. They sometimes do it for the thrill of trying not to get caught. If a student intervenes it can take away some of their enjoyment. Even if they don’t admit it they may be embarrassed and it might motivate them to stop. Even if it doesn’t you will give a person being bullied a confidence boost and show them that someone does care. That alone can be a big help to someone. Just making their day is an improvement and is worth it.

    If a student see's or know about someone who is being bullied should report it before it gets worse. I think something should be done to lessen bullying in schools, especially in high school.

    The best way for students to intervene is to tell the bully that what they're doing is wrong. They won't know how to respond.

    Bullying is sick and wrong. People who do it are so scared of being pushed down themselves that they try to act superior by harming others. People who bully should get in trouble, and suffer consequences for their actions; and those who are bullied should get help from others who will support them.

    When students see bullying I think what they do about it should be based off what kind of bullying. If it is cyber bullying I feel that the students who sees it going on should stand up for them but not report it to anyone because it can get out of hand if many people get involved, but it also depends on the severity of the bullying. Over all the actions you take to prevent bullying should depend on the severity of it.

    When a student sees one of their peers being patronized or made fun of, they should stand up for their fellow student. It means more coming form someone like you than an older teacher figure that you can’t identify with as easily.

    October 13, 2011 at 1:55 pm |
  259. Hailey

    When students see bullying I think they should take action then and there when it happens. They should step in and try to help the person being bullied. If they wait until it’s over then somebody’s feeling could be hurt already and it would be to late. You can't take back what you say and you can't take back how someone feels.

    As a student myself, when I witness bullying it makes me angry. It gets me to wonder why people are so insecure with themselves that it makes them make somebody else feel bad about themselves. To be honest, bullying in any form disgusts me, and whether my friend is being a bully, or a stranger is being a bully, I always step in and try to show them what is right.

    October 13, 2011 at 1:56 pm |
  261. Patrick

    Any student that sees bullying should do their best to stop it, whether directly or indirectly. Obviously a direct confrontation of the bully would be the best option, approaching the bully and telling him/her to stop. The least a witness can do is report the act, whether to a parent, teacher, counselor, or other adult.

    October 13, 2011 at 1:56 pm |
  262. Sophie

    You should stand up for the person who is being bullied. Then, if it gets to a point where you cannot handle it tell a trusting adult because if we don't come up with a solution now it could become a much bigger problem later.

    October 13, 2011 at 1:56 pm |

    Students need to actually start standing up for each other so it will catch on. Realistically, in most schools, students turn a blind eye when they see someone else being bullied because it wouldn’t be ‘cool’ to intervene or they would be deemed a ‘tattletale’. Bullying affects everyone – the person being bullied and the one doing the bullying (because they are obviously unhappy themselves) – and students need to take a stand against it together.

    I think that people should stand up for those they see being bullied. So much of it could be avoided if people would just step in and let the bully know that what they are doing is wrong.

    When students see bullying they should get involved. Most people think that when something bad is going on and it’s doesn’t affect them that they shouldn’t intervene but they should. Bullying can have a vital impact on people for the rest of their lives and sometimes can end people’s lives. If you see someone being bullied either you should help them or aware someone else of their problem so they can.

    The thing with bullying is when one student sees any type of bullying they will not do anything to stop it. The reason for this is they are worried they will be judged and are too afraid of getting a bad reputation. They should not worry about this, they should only worry about their fellow peers getting bullied. They should stand up for them and not worry about what people will think, because most likely everyone will be inspired that someone took charge against bullying. So it’s time for you to take a stand!

    Carl, in today's society, there is only one sure way to get ALL of the buillies off of your back; stand up for yourself! If you let bullies push you around, your gonna deal with bullies until you graduate someday.

    When students see bullying, they should definitely respond by trying to help the situation. I think they should do this either by separating the people involved or defending the person getting bullied. I don’t think students, however should impose in such a way that they could escalate the problem. So if there is not a way to involve yourself without making things worse, you should inquire help in someone else.That somebody else could be a teacher, parent, or even a friend. Essentially anybody who has the same helping intentions. Bullying, if not stopped, can possibly hurt the bullied and leave deep emotional or physical scars for the rest of their lives. I think students should try to educate one another about bullying and spread the word about just how serious it can be.

    First, if you have a school counselor, then you should advise them. Otherwise, just contact a teacher or principle and talk to them about that situation. You should also try to stand up for the victim.Ya

    I absolutely think that bulling is wrong but a lot of it doesn't happen face to face anymore. Yet it is mostly all on Facebook or starts out on the internet then progresses to face to face. Girls are very catty and will try to not make contact with their victim yet they can still hurt someone very mentally and emotionally. If you see someone getting bullied in that way try to deal with it yourself until it turns into a bigger problem because maybe it was all a misunderstanding and you just need to talk it out. Other situations can be different but go with your gut feeling. You have to deal with bullying your whole life so surround yourself with good people.

    yes, i have been bullied many times actually. Iv'e said this many times, if you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all.
    Choosing the friends to be around is smart because they respect you and look up to you. When i'm with my real friends i'm a leader. I act all goofy with them and i'm really funny. But when i was in 6 or 7 grade i was getting bullied by this girl, she was very mean and said pretty offensive things to me. i said something like i love your shoes then walked away, after that she was very confused.

    tell an adult if you are being bullied only kids can make the diffrince

  274. Melody

    First, I think you should go and tell a teacher. If that does not work, you should fight back. If all else fails then you should not fight back and just show no weakness.

  275. Ashlie

    Bullying should not be tolerated anywhere!!! There is a new law that if you bully, you will face a more severe punishment than you did before the law came to order. Bullying should not be tolerated anywhere, even if there is a law!

    October 13, 2011 at 2:32 pm |
  276. Melody

    First thing about bullying you should just go tell a teacher. If that does not work then you have to fight back. And if all else fails the you do not fight back and show no weakness@!

  277. Adrienne

    I think bullies have no sense in what people think.They tend to not have a care in the world for other kids.I think other kids who are not being bullied should stand up for kids who are being bullied so that kid has a friend to be dependent on. Bullies need to stop what they are doing and think about how they treat people because innocent kids shouldn't have to suffer for the bullies mistakes.

    October 13, 2011 at 2:34 pm |

    I think that bullying is not okay because if you see somebody being bullied you need to tell the teacher imiditly so he dose not get bullied

    in my opinion i say the first thing to do is tell a teacher when you are getting bullied.Or you can go up to the bully and talk to him/her. kids should really stop bulling its a big issue in school.

    Kids can make the diffrence to stop bullies. Stop them before they get to you. There are many ways to stop bullies fight back, tell an adult , tell a freind and they' ill help you.I say the best way is to tell an adult.

    Being discrimated is horrid, I have seen it happen, and I always wanted to fend the bullies off for the person because I felt so sympathetic. You should always inform someone when it's happening, because otherwise everything will worsen sevens-fold. Remember that your friends and family care about you, so you can always explain to them. Bullies need to be stopped and eventually prevented. You need to tell someone who can help the child who is being bullied, and sometimes, the best you can get is acting up to the bully yourself. It may not always work, but it shows you truely care about mankind and other people, and understand why we shouldn't abuse or torment other people just because we feel like it.

  284. Tori

    The thing I hate the most is bullying. People only bully so they can feel bigger then you and they pick on more people who can't defend yourself. So just turn around and don't make a fuss or they will keep picking on you.If you see people getting bullied you should help them.

    October 13, 2011 at 2:39 pm |

    Yes I think bullies are mean but I've never gotten bullyed before.If I was bullyed I would tell a teacher or a parent.I would try talking things out If there was a problem.

  286. Josalynne

    Bullying is not right.People do it because they think they are more powerful than anyone and that they rule the world.They put people down and treat them like they are nothing and it not acceptable.Bullies think is cool to do that to weaker kids.To all the kids out there who get bullied 24/7,when you get bullied try not to cry because it satisfies their bullying and their job is done.When someone is fatally injured that is when you cross the line BULLIES!!!So if you see a classmate or another kid getting bullied do the right thing and tell a teacher or adult and stick up for that person don't just walk off think if it was you.Do the right thing:)

    I think bullying should be a law for the united states.One day we all will reunite and become friends. i was bullied befor and got realy hurt! soo those of you that have got bullied i promise every thing will be all right..! those of you who bully your killing hurting people.

    Hello my name is Daniel and I would like to state my opinion about bullying. Bullying is unacceptable and shouldn't be tolerated anywhere. I have never been bullied but Ive seen younger kids getting bullied by kids my age. I usually stop it, but if someone my age is bullying a younger kid whats going to happen when I'm not there to stop it? Bullying is wrong and i hope it stops soon.

    October 13, 2011 at 2:42 pm |
  289. Ashlie

    There is a new law that if you bully someone, then you receive a more severe punishment than you did before the law was put into place. It shouldn't have been tolerable in the first place.The only way to stop this is to work together and if we're bullied, we shouldn't bully others, even if they're much more weaker.We should also be aware of others, just to make sure that no one is feeling down because of another classmate.

    October 13, 2011 at 2:42 pm |
  290. Dillon

    I think bullying is not right and that you shouldn't bully just because you feel like it or are having problems at home.If you are being bullied try ignoring the person bullying you or tell a teacher or parent also try avoiding the bully.Also bullies lay off of bullying and you will find you're life all that much better.

    October 13, 2011 at 2:43 pm |
  291. christina

    when a student sees another student getting bullied they should try to a first stop it. then if this does not work then they should try their best to find someone who can stop what's going on. lastly if this doesn't work then they should call the police because this is a matter happening all over the country. thats what i think they should do if they see someone getting bullied.

    October 13, 2011 at 2:44 pm |
  292. Mikaylah

    I think bullying unacceptable.When you bully you are just trying to be cool well guess what bullies you're not.They put down people and tease people but most of all push people around.I think if your getting bullied tell an adult even if the bully says don't tell an adult I will punch you in the face tell an adult he said that to.So that is my opinion on bullying. p.s:bullies stop trying to act all cool and put people down try to help people feel good so we can make the world a better place.Do the right thing:)

    To stop bullying we should all stand together , as one. We should become friends not enemies, this world has too many as it is. I do think bullies should be punished , but in the right way.Don't be a bully to stop a bully.If you see a bully bulying you should go tell someone not just stand by.

  297. Sydney

    I think that the issue of bullying is the fact the nobody really see's how bad that it's hearting the person that's being bullied except the victim.I think that they should really take bullying seriose.There are so many people that commite suicide because of bullying and that is just not right people should not have to give there lives away because of one person that keeps mentaley or phisicalley hurting them.I don't think they take this issue seriousley it's almost like they dont even really care about the person thats being bullied and it's patthetic.The bullie should have to be exspelled or even taken to juvey or have to talk to the cops depending on how seriouse the probleme is. And i think that if you are being bullied you need to either stand up for your self, tell an adult or teacher or talk to the bullie and ask them to stop and how whould they feel if they were bullied everyday or even every other day I just really dont think you should fight because that chould lead to other problems.

    October 13, 2011 at 2:47 pm |
  298. Kaylee

    I believe that kids should help to stop bullying because people will become depressed from bullies and will be afraid to go to school and if they choose not to go to school then they won't learn and if they dont learn than when they grow up they won't be able to get a job causing them not to get money for a house or food or even a family.Bullies are the cause of this and so we need to stop them from bullying people.If we need to we should have stricter schools and if we see other students getting bullied we need to help them and tell a teacher or a parent.

  299. Meredith

    Bullying is definitely a problem. If you are a victim or even a witness, it is your responsibility to let someone know or at least stand up for yourself or another, so that the problem can be stopped at the root. Problems like these can go on for ages and the bullies will only get stronger. I hope everyone can take a stand against bullying and hopefully the problem will go away. And to all the bullies out there, just be nice!:) Follow the golden rule and treat people how YOU want to be treated!

    I think people should really stop bullying because if the person does not like and you see it and keep it a secret then you could really feel bad so I would just tell some one that the other person is being bullyed. I would know because I have been bullyed...

    Student are afraid to stand up for someone because they fear it might injure their social status, which would put them in the position of being bullied. Students shouldn't fear the bully they should nearly push him off
    all he/she is looking for power over someone or just do it cause its what
    the "popular" are doing. Students should approach bullying with strength, stand up for the student that is being bullied.

    Bullying is a serious problem and can have a lasting effect of kids. Other students/friends should stand up for the kid(s) being picked on. It's not something to be learned, it's just common sense.

    bully are no more then the person they are picking on it is because they are or have been bulled and do not know how to act to others. i believe that if you see something that not right go and try to stop it or get someone to help and do not try to act like it ever happend. step in and make a change!!

    If I someone being bullied I tell a nearby teacher or adult.
    If I see it is getting out of hand and there is no teacher or adult around I would stand up for the victim myself and tell someone else to go tell a teacher or an adult.

    i think that the bullies are bulling people, because its for a reasons like some thing they are mad at like something at home or something/ someone said so i think they are going to need to go to a anger manage classes. I also think that if u are a bystander just waching go call a adult for help. and if u get bullied u have to tell some one to do some thing not keep it bundled in side.

    bulling is such a bad problem during these times the last thing we need is for more kids committing suicide due to cyber bulling and face to face bulling and it is stupid when people pick on you for what you look like because my best friends are not the most prettiest people in the world but sure are one of the most nicest

  313. Roddy

    I am saddend to here that bullying has become such a big issue here in the United States. I hope that they can come up with a program that can stop this from happening. We need to make the younger generation realize that it is not ok to bully another person. If this isn't stopped, it won't only be the ones being bullied that are effected, but it will effect the entire nation. Its time to rise up, and make a statement. Because this is a very crucial situation, that needs to be controlled, before it gets worse.

    Bullying is bad for everyone. It should not happen at all. Bully's should be punished. Bullying is against the law in 47 out of 50 states. It should be against the law in all 50 states and all over the world. A lot of bullying leads to suicides we should all work together and be friends to stop bullying. We should not be enemies.

  318. Michaela

    I deffinantley understand the issue of bullying, so I understand how important it is to stop bullying because I have had experience with being bullied, and it is not fun at all, and some people have or have tried to kill themselves because they are bullied. Like last year for exampel, I had a friend, and she got bullied everyday on the bus, so she would start to cry and she would start thinking of ways for her to kill herself, then one day it finally got so bad that she started crying really hard and was pretty much trying to kill herself on the bus. So finally i just couldnt stand it anymore, so i stood up in my seat on the bus and yelled at the girl who had been torturing her, and she got real quit then after I sat down she started making fun of me. So I got into the same seat with her then i told her, "Tommarow, we are going to go talk to the principle, and im going wether you are with me or not." So the next day she didnt show up to the office so I filled out an incident report. Then her and the girl that was being mean to her had to go to the guidance counciler, and when she got on the bus that afternoon she told me, "Michaela, I didnt want you to do that because I was scared, but after I got out of that guidance room, I felt a lot better, thank you so much, you are a great friend!" So her and the girl made up and she got alot of friends.

    I think that the shools should have hall monitiors stand in the hallways and watch for bullying. Then the hall monitor should take the bully to the prinsipal and the bully should be punished.

    The way I think students should react to bullying is I think they should try to help the person who is being bullied and if there is an adult around I think they should go start to the adult and tell them what is going on.

  322. Emily

    I think it is good that people do,or try to stand up for others. If it were me I woud get help or try to stop it. Maybe you know how bad bulling hurts people, but I have been bullied before and it hurts ( emotionally, sexualy, and painfully).

  323. Heidi

    all students know not to bully, but some choose to do it anyway. it can be from minor name calling to serious abuse. some kids commit suicide because of bullying. students should think about this when they see bullying. they should step up and confront the bully but not alone because when your alone your just as likely to be hurt as the abused, or you just need the support. it's those who step up and face the bullier that have a true heart.

    I hear stories every day about students geting bullying and see them on TV but that seems just to make my mom woried.She always tells me not to commet suicied because thats what these people did.So my solusion for bullying is make it more world wide. Then make laws about it bullying is a very harsh thing and I stand high against it.What else i think we should do is everyone to have a day were they play with someone lonly or help someone if they are geting bullyed.Make a holiday were every one does a good thing.one by one we will make the world better.One of the reasons that child is a bully is they might be lonely or have been bullyed,so all I'm saying is to give that child a chance.STOP BULLYING

    I think that students who are getting bullied should tell a teacher or a trusted adult about the problem. Most kids think that if they tell someone what the bully is doing, the bullying will just get worse. It won't. Kids need to speak up for whoever is getting bullied – if it's them, a friend, or maybe even someone they don't like.

    All student know not to bully, but some do it anyway. Wether it be basic name calling or too often physical abuse, bullying always hurts. In some cases, bullying can lead to suicide. Students should always think about this when they see bullying. Either when they see it they should confront the bully or TELL a teacher, parent, or responsible adult. No matter what they do, they should never let bullying go unnoticed.

    My opinion is to stop teen bullying and all kinds of bullying. I don't get why people bully we are ALL people in the same world and we are all people. So lets stand up to bullying and BE A BUDDY NOT A BULLY!

    I want to turn the question on you Carl, what would you do if you say bullying. Would you step up and tell who ever the kid was bullying to stop, or would you walk away because its none of your buissness because they are only kids. I am asking you this, because you only mention students, but bullying accours to not only kids, but also adults. I already have my answer, I would step up, tell them to stop and help because it is not right to do that to people, no matter who they are. So Carl what are you going to do the next time you see someone being bullied?

    October 13, 2011 at 6:14 pm |

    When we see bullying we tell the bully politely to stop, we also comfort the victum. We think if you can't get across to the bully that bullying is mean we tell an adult. Simple, if you let bullying go un noticed your are no better than the bully. Al we can say is stick up for yourself.

    In my opinion they should take the series of steps listed below in the order written.

    1. They should stop and take a moment to look at the situation and think “what is the best way to intervene in it without make it worse.”
    2. They should use the tactic they think will work and apply it to the situation.
    3. They should ask both sides about their perspective of the situation and ask if there is a way to solve it.
    4. If the situation becomes worse get help.
    5. If the situation becomes better you have done your job.

    There are many ways to stop bullying: standing up for yourself, turning what the bully says into a compliment, getting a teacher, walking away, ignoring the bully, and hanging out with friends instead of being alone, are a few ways you can stop bullying.

    If some is being bullied you could:get in the middle of it, get a teacher, stand up for your friend, and tell the bully to cut it out. Calling the bully out would also work, "Why do you like to bully others?"

    Bullying is an important thing to talk about because people can be hurt physically and emotionally...Think about it, do you want to be bullied?

    All be a friendly and kind person so things won't get out of hand.You can also end up as a bully if you make the wrong choices.Do not underestimate the people who really care for you.Bad demonstrations equals bad reputations.

    I'm from Germany, and after I came to America, I've had a rough time with bullies. Everyone thinks all pure germans are bad because of WWII. 'Nazi' they call me sometimes. When I get bullied, I stand up for myself the best I can. If someone is bullied, I think they should try to stand up for themselves to try to make the bully stop, and if that doesnt work, you should tell an adult

    Bullying HAS to stop! There have already been too many deaths because of bullying. I'm still one of the victims of bullying. People are being bullied mainly because of their race or if they're straight or not or whatever the reason why they're being bullied. And the results of being bullied aren't pretty. Cutting or other self-harm, suicide, anorexia or other eating disorders or anything else. Bullying is obviously wrong and the bullies should be punished or at least lectured.

  348. Aoi

    So many kids and teens wake up and are afraid to go to school. Bullying is such a strong action. Even just the LITTLEST insult can hurt or scar someone. And the result of bullying are very heartbreaking, self-harm, anorexia, and even suicide. If bullying scars could show they would be a big open wound. I stand up to ANYONE who's being bullied. Be careful of what you say. Don't be the cause of the results of bullying.

  349. Caeli

    I think that kids that are getting bullied should stick up for themselves and if that doesn't work go tell an adult. But also the kids that see the bullying going on and don't do anything about it need to stick up for the victim. If they don't they're just as bad as the bully!

    October 15, 2011 at 7:56 am |
  350. Brielle

    When most students see a person being bullied, they don't think twice to walk away. But what they don't see is that by helping this person once, they can save their life. look at all the kids who commit suicide because of bullying. if somebody would have stepped up,those kids wouldn't have died.

    i think that we should stand up for each other there should not be bullying , we should not have to have a month to realize how bad this really is . so stand up for your peers like you would for family

  354. Mel and Em

    We think that when someone is being bullied then they should stick up for themselves. Read a how-to piece to find out how to turn an insult into a compliment. Or ignore them because bullies want you to feel bad so just act like it doesn't bug you. Or just say "so are you!" to the bully.
    Bully: You're ugly.
    Victim: So are you.
    Bully: You're stupid!
    Victim: So are you.
    and etc…

    I think that when someone is being bullied their friends should be the first ones to help them. If their friends see that there friend is being bullied and do not stop it, then maybe they are not really friends.

    well when you get bullied you should talk too someone very close to you and tell them your problem if you dont take a stand other people should.

    I was bullied for a long time, and it's not right. And anyone who thinks that it is, is clearly messed up. It don't matter if it's minor or big, it is wrong, and it hurts people deep inside. Verbal, physical, mental, online, or whatever, it needs to stop.

  359. Kristin

    I've been bullied before. It's hard to stand up for yourself. It's also hard to get a friend involved in fear of them getting bullied too. What I did, was secretly talk to a trusted adult and together, we thought of a plan for me to not only avoid the bully on my way to class, but also so that if I ever incounter the bully, I know that the teachers are keeping a watchful eye.

    October 15, 2011 at 1:20 pm |

    I'v been bullied and i just let them do that but i think no one should be bullied and it just shows that their sad or hurt and they don't know how to express it only by making others feel their pain

    The first thing you should do is try to ingore them.If they just cant get out of your head try to think of somthing else or just walk away.The most important thing is to just not care what they say or think, and just go on with your life.

    If someone is getting bullied or if you see someone getting bullied, then you should talk to guidance counselor or teacher and they will help you and your bullying problems.

  364. Rickera

    I think students that see a fellow peer being bullied should intefere. My reason being is that, if they themselves were being bullied they would want someone show a random act of kindess and help them out. If I was the one being bullied I would tell the bully that their petty and imature comments don't bother me in any which way or form then walk away. BE A FRIEND TO ONE ANOTHER NOT A FOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think that more kids should stand up for each other. Bullying effects so many people, some say they care but never really show it. Don't be afraid to speak up and be herd.

    Bullying can not stop itself! People have to do something about it! If you see somebody being bullied do something! People who just stand and watch because they think that it would not be cool are just as bad as the bullies themselves!

  367. Heena

    After ratiocinating about the question, it occured to me that everyday kids all around the world are bullied but not everyone trys to intervene and stop this behavior. Moreover, when seeing someone being bullied it is ideal to tell the bully to stop or tell an adult. However, not everyone has that kind of coarage and usually will ignore the situation. Without a doubt, it is pivitol to stop a bullying situation as soon as you can. Usually the problem can get much worse over time and it is better to quickly put a stop to it. Clearly, bullying happens everyday all across America to innocent children and with the help of others, we can put a stop to it.

    October 15, 2011 at 7:54 pm |
  368. Cailynn

    I think they should got get help or try to stop it. I would stick up for the person that is being bullied. Also it would help if me made it more worldwide. When people see bullying their scared of stopping it me though I would stand up for the victim. Bullying is very mean and cruel.

    Being bullied, isn't the first choice when your in school. People only bully other's because they were bullied once. Several people go home, thinking about killing themselfs' because they don't want to worry about being bullied. I myself know that being bullied, won't be a option in my mind. Always tell an adult, before the bully get's to far and you can't handle it anymore.

    October 15, 2011 at 8:06 pm |
  370. Laura

    With an issue as serious as bullying is, there's no messing around. Those kids should be proud that they try to stop bullying from happening. Because we all know that takes guts. Most people, would just sorta watch it happen, and ignore it. There have been incidents when kids that are bullied, feel so bad and feel like they've done something truly wrong to deserve this. Truth is, they didn't. Most people didn't do ANYTHING to deserve the kind of treatment they are getting from their peers. I've been the subject of bullying before; and I know how it feels. I'm still going through teasing and bad jokes, and sure, it hurts; it stings like a slap in the face sometimes... But if I don't want it done to me I step up for myself. My friends step up for me, and they got my back. That's why I'm feel better, knowing there ARE other kids out there who try to stop bullying in it's tracks.

    Just go till a Teacher or talk to your parents.Do not listen to the Bully.If that does not work just stay away from the Bully.

    I believe that kids should stand up for themselves but if somome else else should also help the person being bullied.Also if you don't want to be bullied find some thing in common with him or her or at least be polite and don't make it a huge deal onless it was severe

    When somebody is bulling you is because maybe the bully has problems at home.You can talk to the bully and ask him what are the problems then maybe you can end up being his or hers friend.

    i think that an adult should be told, but it isn't always that easy. i have been bullied bu wast to afraid to do something, and i don't know what it was; but i said something to one of my friends and they got help. It wasn't as bad as i thought it was going to be so if you are being bullied, don't be afraid to tell someone even if it is just one of your friends willing to help because if you don't get help it may never stop.

    October 15, 2011 at 11:46 pm |
  376. samanatha

    As much as kids may want to stand up to the bully for the person that is being bullied, don't. Get a responsible adult to break it up. But, a witness that doesn't do anything about bullying is just as gulity as the bully theirself. I think bullying is a big issue. Now it is bullying, then drugs, then jail. We need to try our best to eliminate bullying. But, it will take people to step up and start the chain reaction to end bullying.

    October 16, 2011 at 12:05 am |
  377. Bethsua (beth)

    I think we should stand up for each other. Not just because it's the right thing to do and everyone is telling us to do it. But because in our hearts we know that we don't want to be in that same situation and have no one help us.

    October 16, 2011 at 12:55 am |
  378. Savannah

    Personally, if I were to see bullying going on, my first instinct would be to say something to the bully. If that didn't work I would take the issue to an adult. I feel that people who bully are insecure about themselves, and obviously very immature. Never should one walk away from the sight of bullying. It doesn't matter if it has nothing to do with you, stick up for others. We're all human, there's no one human being better than the next. Stop it; don't ignore it or you look just as bad as the low-life bully!

    I have seen bullying everywere! it gets old but then i realized if you stick up for the victim you will get a new really cool friend and the bullying stops! it works! promise....

  383. Katie

    I think for a lot of kids it is difficult to stand up to a bully, whether it be themselves or someone else getting bullied. What ever the case may be, I think that kids should not care what others think no matter what. Although it can be extremely hard to do this sometimes, try it. You will find your life to be less stressful and you will be more content. BUT, if the bullying gets severe, really mean, or physical, I believe that absolutely you need to tell a teacher, parent and/or friend.

  385. Jyssica

    I think being bullied is not fun, the person that is being bullied needs to tell someone about it and the bully needs to stop being a bully because a bully isn’t someone that makes cool it make you a jerk and if the person is just minding its own business and not doing anything to the bully the bully should just leave him alone and just mind his own business and leave the kid alone. Sometimes bullies doesn’t listen and we need to protect the people that are being bullied from the bullies because no one should be bullied if you can’t be nice to others then just don’t bother talking to them be nice even if you don’t like the person.

  386. Justin

    After viewing this segment on CNN Student News, one could obviously see that bullying is a growing issue in many schools. A cogent solution to solve these conflicts is to simply tell an adult like a teacher or even one’s parents. The mentioned "verbal combat" may not seem as cool as portrayed in the video. Confronting the bully yourself could lead to more problems and break out in fights between students. This is because the victim may lash out from his/her latent anger when trying to end the conflict. Thus, the easiest most effective way to stop bullying in schools is to consult an adult.

    October 16, 2011 at 3:06 pm |

    If I see a bully picking on someone. I would get a teacher to stop him

  388. Annika

    At my school, this is how you stop bulling if you your self is getting bullied. First, saying an I message. Next, walk away. If that doesn't work, tell an adult. I think that all kids should follow that way of how you can take care of a bully.

    October 16, 2011 at 4:39 pm |
  389. Aaron

    I think an issue that gives bullies the upper hand is the teacher's take and reaction on bullying. There are too many statements like "i don't care who's fault is was" or "I really don't want to have to deal with this" and not enough justices, witch allow a bully the upper hand. A victim of bullying is to afraid of fowl marks on one's educational record while one who's main objective is to put down another student has nothing to lose.

    October 16, 2011 at 4:50 pm |
  390. Dajah

    Bullying is wrong & such a cruel thing . I also think if you stand up for yourself you would not get bullied . If you dont do anything then the bullier know that you wont & will continue . But picking with someone is very harsh , you never know what that person is going threw , i think if you have to bully someone you have a problem with yourself .

    October 16, 2011 at 5:11 pm |
  391. Gabriel

    If I was to see bullying occur, the first reaction I would do is to go to the nearest adult. It can be anyone a teacher ,principle ,parent ,janitor ,ect. If there was to one to confront the situation, iI would try to stop it myself, and intervene with the situation. I would also tell the bully about how he should not be doing this and how it is not a correct solution for anything. Every bully should think about his/her actions before commiting them, and also think of the consequences.

    October 16, 2011 at 5:38 pm |
  392. Ciara

    When students see another peer getting bullied , they should report it. They should report the victim , report the bully , and report the by-standers. Sure, you may seem like your being a tattletail but the victim can be hurt physically and mentally. You never know , if the next day the victim can admit suicide. Also, you can also help the victim out. I know if i was getting bullied i would want someone to tell. In otherwords, the victim should stand up for him/herself to the bully. No one should ever be a victim of bullying. If you ever see someone being bullied please report it to an adult .

    I feel bullying needs to be STOPPED!!!! this is not a subject to mess around with my old school had a hotline. Carl imagine you were being bullied by a co-worker like the camera guy. You wouldnt be the cheerful happy guy you are.

    October 16, 2011 at 7:11 pm |
  394. Jessie

    I believe that the kids should all be aware of this issue and stand up for the victims. It doesn't matter if the bully attacks you next, they can't focus on two targets.

    October 16, 2011 at 7:23 pm |
  395. Jessie

    If you see someone being bullied but are scared of being bullied, find a teacher or other adult and talk to them out of sight. Then the bully will have no idea who it was and will realize that there are caring people who look out for others.

    October 16, 2011 at 7:25 pm |

    I think students should respond to bullying by telling an adult.I also think students should respond by telling the the person thats being bullied to calmly walk away.

    The issue of bullying has be if someone just comes up to you and just start bullying you can go and tell a teacher about whats going on with you and that person or you can fight that person yourself.

    you should get an adult to get them in trouble because if you handle it your self it will get you in more trouble then the person that is bullying you

  400. MiCayla

    I think the student that is getting pick on should stand up to the bully and said look at here why are you picking on me it not going to make you look cool. People are not going to like you they are going to stay alway from you and you will not have any friends at all. You are just going to be lonely and thinking to yourself , saying why me , why I have to be the bully. What do You Think Carl

    October 16, 2011 at 10:10 pm |
  401. jesse

    I think kids are too scared to step in but definitely should do so. Bullies sometimes go way too far, shouldn’t be an issue in the first place, but there are times kids are killed or beaten severely bad. No kid should go through this, bullies think they need to feel bigger and better than everyone else. If kids see this happening to anyone, their friend or not their friend. They should tell a teacher or faculty member, even a parent. If it is more serious than verbal abuse or a little shoving they should even go to the police. Bullying is way too serious not to do anything about it.

    I think when students see bullying they should think to themselves "Can I do something to stop it?" If they can then they should do it. If they can't then they should go get a teacher or principal to stop it or interveen.

    October 17, 2011 at 8:10 am |

    I think students should say something, even if it's there best friend doing it.
    you should stand up for people who are being treated like that.

  412. Gaelon

    I was always told in school that if a kid was being bullied then you have to tell an adult or stand up for the kid, but so many people are scared to because they think that it will ruin their reputation. We all need to get over it and try as hard as we can to stop bullying before it becomes worse than it already is.

    When kids get bullied they usually dont tell an adult, but when other kids see it they are more inclined to tell an adult and it usually stops, so if you see it you should tell an adult.

    I think that students should not be taking their life because someone is bullying them. Life life the fullest... They just want to make someone feel bad because they need help... Be the bigger person and stand up..

    i think people should if they see bullying they should stand up for the person getting bullyed and tell the bully to stop. what you also could do if you see a kid getting bullyed then get a teacher and have them stop it.

    There is tattaling. Then there is telling. Tell a teacher if their is any type of bullying. Just tell an adult. Dont keep it to yourself. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. It all starts with you.

    The issues on bullying are serious. MAny teens commit suicide because of them being bullied; the reasons they're normally bullied are from their sexual oriantation, the way they look, act or even where they come from. People are cruel and they won't stop until they're confronted, and even, sometimes, they won't stop then. Stop bullying and save lives.

    When people see someone getting bulled they should tell a teacher. They should just stand by and watch what they are doing to the kid. If it was me and i was being bulled i would try to get away and tell a teacher or my mom or my dad, and if i was the preson who just standed there and watched i would not of been a good preson. So if someone is getting bulled the best thing to do is tell a teacher or your mom or dad that is the good thing to do.

    Bully is just wrong. NO body should have to go through it. We are all the same on the inside. What matters on the outside?

    I believe bullying should be adressed as seriously as a fight. It is not right to bully people, you do not know what they are feeling when you are doing it. You should put yourself in thier shoes for a day if your're a bully out there.

    I think kids should tell a teacher so that it can be stopped. You would not be tattling if you told a teacher. There is a difference between telling and tattling.

    If you see someone getting bullied I think you should go over to the whoever is getting bullied and stand up for them. Also I think you should go over to the person that is getting bullied and ask he/she if they want to be friends. You should get a grown up or a teacher if you see someone getting bullied. Millions of kids get bullied every day and someone needs to stop it.

    October 17, 2011 at 10:35 am |

    I think that you should go up to whoever that is getting bully and stand up for them . I also think when you see someone that is getting bully go get a growen up or a teacher or whoever is watching you. Bullying is world wide and need to be stop. million of kids are ending up in hostipals or hurting so much they cant move a inch. the bullying that had gone to long. The people that is watching the bullying happening need to hepl the person that is getting beat up or need to get a person that is watching you. That is all i think about bullying

    It is extremely important to tell someone you trust because if something isn't done about it, it will escalate into something that will be more difficult to stop. It doesn't make you a coward to tell someone, it means you are brave enough to stand up for yourself. We all need to make an attempt to stop bullying because everybody needs to love everybody.

    October 17, 2011 at 10:53 am |
  428. Terry

    I think students should look for signs of bullying and take the student being bullied under their wing. A victim of bullying needs someone that they ca go to, and one person taking notice and being their friend could really have an impact on the situaton and also on the victim of the bullying.

    October 17, 2011 at 10:54 am |
  429. Kristin

    I think that when a student sees someone else being bullied they should step in and stop it immediantly, even if they don't know either of the kids. There is never a time when bullying is right and it needs to be stopped right away.

    October 17, 2011 at 10:58 am |
  430. Jenna

    Bullying something that is becoming a huge issue in high schools everywhere. Teachers, as well as students, should do all they can to prevent bullying before it happens. When bullying does occur, teachers should step in and make it stop. Students need to stand up for one another. Bullying is more than the physical side, the emotional aspect can really do as much, if not more, damage.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:00 am |
  431. Samnick

    Bullying is just a outlet to gain attention or power. For the most part, the bully is someone who isn't the "coolest" by high school standards. If kids realize that these set standards don't matter then it will be easier to cope and find friends.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:01 am |
  432. Kaylee

    When bullying is occurring I would go and find some of my friends so it's a group ordeal and actually try to scare the bully or bullies so it shows ur not the only one that wants to stop the bullying. But if I'd be the only one that cares I'd say my piece and take the victim with me. That's just my opinion.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:02 am |
  433. Lacey

    I think bullying might not necessarily be an issue of someone standing up for the kid getting bullied right at the moment of the incident but rather someone in a peer group should stand up for the person being teased when he or she is not around. It will put less pressure on the situation at hand.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:03 am |
  434. Em

    I think students should stand up for people getting bullied. It is a pretty big issue and can lead to sadness and suicide. Helping someone that is being bullied can make their day and you could acctually make a friend in the process.

  435. Taylor

    Bullying can really make high school and every day life torture for people, when high school should be some of the best days of a kids life! So, if you catch a bully in action stop them. Imagine if you were the victim of the bullying – wouldn't you want someone to stand up for you?

    October 17, 2011 at 11:05 am |
  436. Jimmy

    Surround yourself with good people. Avoid bullies and find people who you like and who like you for who you are. There is no need to even acknowledge bullies, and if they are persistent even when you avoid them, seek help because there are people who can help you, especially if they make it obvious to others that they are bullying you.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:06 am |
  437. Chelly

    I think more peeple should actually stand up for others being bullied. It's drilled into you from Elementry school all the way to highschool that bullying is mean, it hurts feelings, etc. You never actually know what is goin through the victims mind, how bad they are hurting or what they may be thinking. Nobody ever takes it seriously until something bad actually happens. It shouldn't have to ever come to that.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:09 am |
  438. Michael

    To all the bullies who may be reading this, bullying isn't cool. If you think it's going to make people like you honestly it does the opposite, people are going to notice you, but they wont think of you as cool. Bullying hurts not only the victim, in the end its going to hurt you as well. If you want friends, or if you want people to look at you as a cool person try being a friend yourself, trust me it's definitly a better option. To those of you being bullied know that others do see it, if you need help ask for it. Theres more people than you'd expect that would stand up for you. And for the bystanders, don't wait for someone else to do someting, if you see a problem with bullying stand up and say something about it, you can make a difference.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:09 am |
  439. marshal

    Well, first of all they shouldn't just walk away. Just stay and help them out so that way they won't be alone. 2 is better than 1.

    they should stand up for one another and either tell an adult or try to stop it yourself.

  441. Noah

    I think bullying is wrong in so many ways. It can go from kids just getting just mad to going out and shooting themselves. You never know what you're doing to a kid or how you affect them.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:19 am |
  442. Kayla

    When you see someone bullying the first thing you should do is stand up and say something. In my experience, when someone stands up for the victim, the bully usually stops. If the bullying continues, then tell a teacher or parent that's nearby. They should be able to resolve the issues.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:19 am |
  443. Fill

    I feel that kids should never be afraid to stand up for what they think is right. So i think kids should go tell a teacher, but the question people are probablt asking themselves is what if I am not at school. Then you should tell an adult or better yet stand up and do wh at you feel is right. If anyone has enough courage to do that, that person is great.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:19 am |

    If a student is bullied, they need to tell an adult. not like shouting, but in private, so it could be anonymous.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:20 am |
  446. Micah

    I think that people that are bystanders and dont do anything to help the person being bulied, are also bullies. Bystanders need to be brave and stand up for those who are being bullied. The bystander either needs to go tell a teacher or just stand up for him.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:21 am |
  447. Samantha

    When people see bullying they should stand up for the person who is getting bullied. If the person does not even know the kid that is getting bullied, they should still stick up for that person. That kid could get really hurt. You never know what could happen with the bullied person.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:21 am |
  448. Clara

    I believe that people should stand up when they see bullying. If they do not, then it will only get worse/continue. Bullying will never, ever stop, no matter how hard we all try. But we can help kids getting bullied by standing up for them. It tells them that they aren't alone, and that they aren't hated or disliked by everyone. Someone still cares. By standing up against bullying, you could save a person's feelings... even save them from committing suicide. Many, many teens suicide due to bullying. We can lower that number by stepping up.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:21 am |
  449. Madelyne

    When students see bullying instead of being a bystander they should think to themselves would I want that to happen to me? Wouldn't I want help from someone? When bullies are faced with having to deal with someone standing up to them they start to become insecure and hopefully realize what they are doing wrong. If we dont have people standing up for these abused children that have been builied, then we are going to have a bigger issue then we think.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:22 am |
  450. Justin

    i think that bullying is really bad, i have been bullyied before it is really mean and hurts people inside and outside. People that are bully victims will start to hurt themselves and even kill themselves. They just need help to get through it with friends and family.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:22 am |

    How do I think we could respond to bullying? Well, I don't know Carl maybe PEOPLE could stand up for those PEOPLE who are getting bullied. Maybe you could talk to the person bullying. Go to a teacher. Report the person. Please! Bullying is NOT nice!

  454. kaitlynn

    When kids see bullying they usually try to stop the situation. There is times when kids get others to help but the bully or bully's will find ways to bully that person. For example: After school when there are no teachers or students around that is a perfect way for them to bully the kid that they want to bully.Kids dont stand up for other kids getting bullied because they could be getting bullied by that same person who is bullying the other kid

    October 17, 2011 at 11:24 am |
  455. Preston

    I think that if another kid is being bullyed and there is another kid watching he should run to a teacher right away and if the teacher does not act right away pull him to the crime scene. If the kid does not react then that person should feel bad about himself.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:26 am |
  456. Blake

    If anyone were to see or even think they see bullying, they should step in and help right away. If you are part of a group, lets say the football players, and someone is getting picked on by one of your teammates you should make the stand and help that kid, set your teammate straight. If you are captain of the team it would make that kid feel great to know that the football captain is a nice guy and will help him out.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:26 am |
  457. Shelsea

    To stop bullying we should speak to get help whenever possible. If you see a bullying situation, don't ignore it, stand up and get help! In my school, we have this thing group called No Place for Hate, this raises awareness against bullying and hatred towards each other.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:27 am |
  458. Karla

    Bullying is a serious matter. If you see someone getting bullied, or if you're getting bullied, then go to a teacher, parent, or any adult that you can trust. If you don't report it, it will never ever stop. & you know it!

    October 17, 2011 at 11:28 am |
  459. Hunter

    I think that if a kid sees someone bullying then they should step in or say something to the bully, but if they dont want to interfere then go tell and adult. If you really think about it, you shouldn't be scared to tell on the bully or interfere with him because it's kind of like you're taking the venom out of the bullies because they have a poison in them that they need to get out.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:29 am |
  460. Andy

    I think that if there is someone getting bullied stand up for what's right and tellna teacher even if you are the only one standing up for what is right

  461. Lisa

    If you see bullying you should not just stand there becasue what if you were in there shoes the one being bullied would you want someone to help you?? I would think so, so therefore you should tell them to stop or go and tell a teacher, so that the teacher can talk to them or keep an eye out for them.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:43 am |
  462. William

    I think kids should deal with it, but most kids just need a backbone and do something about it themselves or no one will stop bullying them.

  464. Andrew

    I think that people who see it happen should stand up for that person because they would want someone to stand up and stop it if that was happening to them

  466. Austin

    Carl, schools need to get more involved by having heavier rules on bullying so that if the bully gets caught he will be hammered with so much punishment that he/she will not want to do it anymore. Just a warning shouldn't cut it anymore the schools need to take more of a action.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:46 am |
  467. Tyler

    People shouldn't just ask if the victim if they are all right they should ask the bully "why? what's the point?" there is no point to bullying so why should they do it? so confront the bully, and tell him what's up!

    October 17, 2011 at 11:47 am |
  468. Angie

    When students are getting bullied I think they need to stand up for themselves. Because if the bully isn't getting that satisfaction of hurting someone that they are looking for, they will eventually stop the bullying all together.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:47 am |
  469. Adam

    Being bullied is all about who you have as a group of friends. Find a good group who will stick up for eachother, and to the bullies. If the group is large enough the number game starts to come into play, and the bully will stop.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:48 am |
  470. Rachel

    Bullying is such a sad situation. No one deserves to be treated with such awful disrespect. If you are seeing someone being bullyed, take a stand and stick up for the person. It will not only make the person feel better that you stuck up for them, but it will be rewarding to you as well knowing that you helped. If you see the bullying continue bring it to the attention of high athority- to a parent or teacher. Help end bullying!

    October 17, 2011 at 11:48 am |

    i would tell a teacher about the bully, so they can stop the bully because sometimes the bully will start bullying you.

  472. Tyler

    I think that we should all stand up for one another. If you see a fellow classmate, or just anyone getting bullied, do something about it. Don't just walk away, say something or tell an adult.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:50 am |
  473. Kyle

    To be honest i think bully is not always bad it is only when you get to the extreme bullying when it happens every day. bullying once in a while is good for the person when it comes to real life. it gets them to learn that not every one is a good person. yes you may be able to slow down bulling in schools, but once they get into life they could have a boss that bullys them or a co-worker. i think that you have reached extreme bullying is when the kid gets bullyed every day. but some bullying is fine it will harden up the person geting them ready for the real world.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:50 am |
  474. Krista

    I have never personally been bullied but my brother has. The kids that bully him are kids who have been told since birth that they were better than everyone else and have "never done anything wrong". Parents are becoming more lenient on how they discipline their children. And that is being shown in how they treat other people. Carl, it's a reflection on how the parents raised their kids.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:50 am |

    Some people cant stand up for themselves as well as others. We need to start helping the victims when we see bullying taking place. Doing so might make the bully feel guilty and hopefully stop doing it.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:54 am |
  477. Tyler

    People need to start standing up for themselves and not let others push them around. If you see someone getting picked on, help them out.

  479. Hannah Jo

    Bullying seems to become a big deal in my school. I just think they are overreacting. Your just standing up for yourself. But in some cases if they are continually picking on you, deal with it!

  481. Cody

    The kids who are getting bullied should not hold it inside yourself, bcause it can get you down, and you never want to feel bad about yourself. You are perfect the way you are.If you are getting bullied you should go and tell an adult, and see what they can do about it.

    October 17, 2011 at 11:57 am |
  482. Taylor

    Bullyng hurts alot of people, even the people who are not the victims. so i think people should look a the big picture and think before they say or do things. Also the victim should surround him or her self with kind and caring people. That would make it easier for the victim to talk about whats going on and how it is affecting them. 🙂

    October 17, 2011 at 11:57 am |

    There is not really one set way of interveening with bullying, but all you really need to do is stand up for the person that is being bullied. just find someway to get that person that is bullying to stop.

  487. Sarah

    I have been bullied and it is not fun. So to help with bullying i do stick up for people at school. I think that everyone should, becuase I know that we all have been picked on for something in our lives. I know that I have been the bully and I know its not right. Some don't even know they are doing it.

    If you see bullying you should tell an adult. Especially when you are at school. Teachers and parents should try to stop bullying and pay attention when it is happening. Treat others how you want to be treated.... so if you dont want to be bullied dont bully others.!!!

    I think that when ANYONE sees someone getting bullied, or someone doing the bullying they should stop & break it up no matter the person, the place, or what it's about. Everyone should care about eachother.

    i think that if another student was getting bullied the buystander should say something to a teacher or have corage and stick up for the person getting bullied. if it was me i would stand up for the student and tell the bully to nock it off and stop bullieing kids and make friends with him

    October 17, 2011 at 12:15 pm |
  493. ELLIX

    some people are too vulnerable and can't help get bullied but their friends may help or may just ignore you. if i don't get help i'd help people anyways, sometimes people don't want to ruin their reputation or or they don't want to be bullied themselves it is not right to bully or just ignore people in need of help
    HELP STAND UP TO BULLIES

    October 17, 2011 at 12:15 pm |
  494. Krystyne

    I say the first thing to do when your getting bullied is to tell a teacher or an adult. And if they don't do any thing tell the princaple or a guideance councler.

    October 17, 2011 at 12:18 pm |
  495. Jordan

    I think that most kids should stick up for the victim, not just sit and watch, kids who have a past of bullying should know how it feels, so they should stick up for them.

    When other students at the middle school i attend see bulling they cheer for the bully and it goes unnoteds to teachers and other school afishals . Even when you tell a teacher they either don't listen or don't care. Then you start getting bullyed for telling what you saw and told about. Even thougth it is not stoping it is becomeing increaseingly less bullying since this artical went up so thank you CNN News people.

    i think he should just find a different sport to play . he should eatheir get to play the whole game like a regular kid can or to not play at all . he is better off playing a whole different sport that hes good at but not so good he is not aloud to play the whole game like all the other kids.

    October 17, 2011 at 5:47 pm |

    I think it depends on how severe the bullying is and how many times has the student gotten into trouble for it. I think that making the bully make a nice gift for every student he bullies could be a way to solve it.
