Standing Up For Yourself


Okay, so there's this mean girl in the school and she's decided to paint a target on your back.

What do you do?

Stand up to her! It might be hard, but you have to stop her before she hits a bull's eye. If she doesn't stop picking on you after you stand up to her, you can report it (see the page Reaching Out). You have the right to be at school and feel safe.
STANDING UP 101
If you are being bullied, the best thing to do is stand up to the bully. Telling them to "Please stop" isn't going to work. You need to be assertive when you tell them to back off.
COMEBACKS
"Back off!"-When a bully is whispering and gossiping with her friends, saying "Back off" FIRMLY can make them cut it out. If they act innocent and ask what they did wrong, tell them they know what they're doing and they need to stop.
"Are you done yet?"-If a bully's insults are getting to you, and she is rattleing on and on and on, this can really take her balance away. If possible, after you say this, make an exit. Walk, don't run.
"And a good day to you too!" If the bully is calling you a name, telling them somthing as random as this will most likely throw them off. Say it angirly, or happily. Just walk away looking like you are the way you said it after you say it.
"Well, that's random!"-This might not seem like the best philosiphy, but if you be rude back, like this , it might stunn them when they're saying somthing mean about you. If they ask you what they did wrong, back back it up by saying, "You know exactly what you did." and walking off.
"I know, I know, I'm SO AWESOME!"-Using sarcasim can really make them veer off the road their trying to take. Turn away after you say this, and make sure you smile after you say this. This works when girls are whipering about you, or when they're glaring at you.
"Yeah. Sure. Cool."-Make sure you mantain a cool, plain and conficdent face when you say this. Look bored. This shows them you don't care what they say, your just happy with yourself. And that's what matters.
IMPORTENT INFO:

DO NOT let the bully know she is getting to you. You need to look strong, not like a doormat. Also, do not try to get her back or say somthing that's angry and insulting to her. If you do, she will get defensive and pull the "Who, me? I'm not doing anything wrong!"
Just Ignore Her Just Won't Work!

Say your told to JUST IGNORE HER. Here's the deal. Just ignore her doesn't work. It gives the bully permisson to keep at you. The truth is, adults tell girls to because a) they think it's a normal part of life b) they may not know how bad it is. Always, ALWAYS stand up for yourself, and ask the adults to help you help you with the problem and make your school safe again.
