What the Expert Says:

It is difficult to feel so powerless is situations like this. Remember that people are less likely to be picked on if they walk and sit with awareness, calm, and confidence. Projecting a positive, assertive attitude means keeping one’s head up, back straight, walking briskly, looking around, and moving away from people who might cause trouble.

Bullies want to know they have control over your emotions so don’t react with anger or retaliate with physical force. If you walk away, ignore them, or calmly and assertively tell them you’re not interested in what they have to say, you’re demonstrating that they don’t have control over you.

Stay away from the places where the bullying occurs. Avoid the person or groups that typically bully you or others. If you can’t avoid the places or people, stay near adults and other kids. Most bullying happens when adults aren’t around

Tell them to stop. Look at the kid bullying you and tell him or her to stop in a calm, clear voice.

Protect yourself. If you can’t walk away and are being physically hurt, protect yourself so you can get away. Your safety is the first priority.

Report the bullying to a trusted adult. If you don’t report threats and assaults, a bully will often become more and more aggressive. In many cases adults can find ways to help with the problem without letting the bully know it was you who reported them.

Keep a written record and repeat as necessary. Keep record of dates and times that bullying occurs Report each and every bullying incident until it stops.
Hang in there, and get some support for the things that you are dealing with.  People in your life want to be able to help you in difficult times!
