I decided to post three simple things I felt could help anyone who reads this to defuse a bully.
1. Tell them to stop. “Stop. I don’t like it when you call me a name/push me/etc.”
2. Just walk away. If you’re in a classroom or another place that you can’t just walk away, try to find a friend or someone to walk with/sit by/talk with/etc. that you like or trust.
3. If all else fails, tell an adult. They are there to help you, and if someone is bullying you, they will deal with it.
