  • Ignore the bully.
  • Look at the bully in the eyes.
  • Tell the bully that you don’t like whatever he/she is doing.
  • Walk away with your head high, but don’t run.
  • Don’t go into places alone with the bully.

  • Ignore the bully.
  • Block the bully’s phone number, email address and any other info that can help the bully access your email.
  • If you see your friend getting cyberbullied, get help.
