100.7 Star wants to help end bullying and the effects that it causes.
100.7 Star Shine A Light on Bullying program, sponsored by Fantastic Sams and The Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, focuses on helping children and teens in spotting and addressing bullying in their schools.
Here are some bullying prevention tips for middle school students.
If you are being bullied:
- It is NOT your fault. Remind yourself that this is happening because other people are choosing to be cruel, not because you deserve to be mistreated.
- Document the bullying. Take a screen shot of cyberbullying activities; photograph bruises or property damage; write down accounts of exclusion or verbal taunting.
- Bring the documentation to school, and make a formal report. You and your parents can work with the school to create a written plan describing the steps the school will take to help you.
- Schedule a meeting with the school to evaluate in two weeks, and if necessary, revise the plan.
