TIP 3: HELP THEM GET AWAY FROM THE SITUATION. A KID'S PERSPECTIVE
CHRISTERFER SMITH: I thought that by them sticking up for me I was just going to get it worse in the back end. But it didn't happen that way. It happened that I was no longer messed with by that person. Now, while others did mess with me, that one specific person stayed away because they were just unsure what was going to happen. So, at first I was very upset because I thought, "This is not a good look. You don't want to seem like a punk. You just want to do what he says and be done." And it's not that. You won't come off as a punk or as a weakling or as weird. When somebody helps you out it's actually them saving you and helping you.
