TIP 1: BE KIND TO THE PERSON BEING BULLIED. A KID'S PERSPECTIVE
LINDSAY FOSHEE: I hate seeing people hurting or upset or sad. So I feel like if I talk to them or make them try to feel better about the situation, then they'll not think about the bullying so much. And just to have somebody there for you is a big help also. I've actually known a lot of people that have been bullied, and I try to stand up for them and I try to be nice to them during the situation also outside of the situation. If you see them at lunch sitting by themselves, sad, go over, just talk to them, like, "How's your day?" Just try to uplift them. A simple smile will go so far. Like if I'm having a bad day and I see someone smiling at me, it will kind of bring me up a little bit. And if they just try to talk to me and ask me how I'm doing and give me a hug, that's very heartfelt. And the smallest things count.
