One day I heard some friends talking about me and how I was terrible at soccer and football
These games are meant for fun. Even though this may be hurtful don't let it get to you. Have fun and play for yourself and not to impress others. Thanks again for sharing. Feel free to comment anytime.
When people call you a bad word you can usually tell if they mean it or not. If somebody called you one of these words and you knew they meant it how would you normally respond? What if this person was a really close friends?
Thanks for posting. These can be tricky situations especially if this person is your good friend. Never be discouraged to tell someone that the comment hurt you. This person should usually respond to that by either apologizing or not calling you it again.
I was in an art class and we working on a project. I did it with my friend and she wasn't doing what we had to do and I needed help with our project. I told her to please stop and help me do what we needed to do. She said ok and started to help me a little bit but than for the rest of the class she would give me the silent treatment. I asked her if she was ok and she said I'm fine in an angry tone. I didn't now what to say so that she wouldn't get any madder at me. How could I prevent this from happening in the future?
Thanks for posting. This has happened to many people my self included. This is not something that is necessarily preventable. Sometimes something can make people feel sad,angry, or upset. After this emotion is triggered many people have different ways of expressing it. The silent treatment is one of those ways. In this case check on your friend once and see if you can do anything. If your friend doesn't respond give them some space and time to cool off. If you have any more questions or comments please feel free.
Gossip is everywhere no matter how you try to avoid it. Some people just hide it behind humor but it can still hurt when people spread rumors about you and your friends. It is unfair to spread lies about someone no matter what they might have done.

In Fifth grade one kid was severely bullied. At one point some of the kids were calling him very bad names. This resulted in some of them getting suspended. The kid at one point needed to see the counselor for his problems with the other kids. He pushed through and made it through grade school. Where in middle school everything cooled down and we are still friends to this day.

I have witnessed somebody in my class getting verbally bullied. It was not swearing but it was insulting something the person loved. The person that was getting bullied was very passionate about music and some other kids were making fun of it and dissing music to intentionally make the kid angry and mad. Whenever the kid tried to say something back or defend himself they would not listen and kept trying to make him angry
Thank you for sharing. It is hard to be a bystander. Action steps that can be taken are defending this person. Even though it may seem hard or different those saying hurtful things will hear you. As you said the people would not listen when they tried to stand up for themselves. If you speak up in a positive way they might hear you more. Another step to take is to comfort this kid who is having a tough time. Tell them that what they do is cool and unique then what other kids do. If you have any further questions please feel free to comment.
People should not bully and should try and should play games that include everyone that wants to play.

Last year in school was the worst year of my life. I was excluded from my friends, whom I had been close with for six years. They ignored me at the lunch table and when I told them something they just gave me a blank face with no expression. At the school I was at everyone had a lunch table and it was all about being in the cool clique. One day me and some girls saw a girl with Downs Syndrome sitting alone so we joined her at her table and she was ecstatic. My best friend since the second grade, who had been bullying me for months now told the girls at her lunch table that we were just showing off. Finally I decided to move to a different table with a girl I barley new. I didn't really fit in but it was better then being bullied. Now I am in a different community with new friends who except me for who I am. I'm no longer being bullied or left out, and it feels good.
We appreciate your story. Thank you for sharing. Feel free to comment at any time.
One time there was some kids bullying this kid at my school. They were calling him retarded, stupid, ugly, and fat. My friend and I helped him out by starting a game of football with the people saying those things and invited the kid being bullied as well. I assured him that those kids didn't mean what they were saying and that they were just trying to act tough.
Great story. Way to bring everyone together. Feel free to comment again.
I was trying to play football, and a kid in my class shoved me really hard because he just wanted to
Thanks for the comment. Feel free to comment again with other questions.
I have been bullied a lot just because of my size and I don't like it. There are only a few people that say I am small and they are the ones that are not nice to me and they always make me feel bad and most of the time is is just because of my size. I would like for it to stop and never happen again. I have asked the people who do it to stop, but they never do. When they do it I try to stand up for my self, but it usually does not work and they get the best of me.
Thanks for posting. Never let these comments put you down. It is hard to not let these comments get the best of you. An action step you can take is to stop and look at them and say "please do not say that, it hurts me when you say that." A clear and concise statement usually will get them to listen. Let us know how it goes. Please feel free to comment anytime.
Even though there is no way to get away from gossip it can get to a point where it turns into verbal bullying and it can really tear someone down. One day I had a friend come up to me and tell me that they heard some people I thought were my friends back stabbing me.
Thanks for posting. This is a very common topic. Many people hear things about what others are saying. In your case your friend told you about what someone else said. This is gossip. An action step you can take is if you hear something about yourself calmly approach the person who said it and have a calm and rational discussion about the problem. Feel free to post anytime.
I feel that gossip is a form of bullying that is a big problem. Gossip is a way of speaking meanly behind someone else's back. The person that you are speaking about can not defend themselves, and most of the time the "gossiper" doesn't even know that much about the person they are talking about. I think that it is a mean and unfair form of bullying
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Gossip is a form of bullying. Feel free to post anytime.
People take pictures of me dancing and show them to other people without my permission. They are really embarrassing. What should I do?
Thanks for posting. Ask them not to post them or even take pictures if you are uncomfortable with it. If they do post them approach them and ask them to take it down. Tell them that you don't want other people to see it. Feel free to post anytime.
I'm afraid to speak in class because this one kid always has something mean to say about what I say. I get a bad participation grade in class because I am so scared that he will embarrass me and make fun of me in front of the whole class.
Thanks for posting. Never be discouraged to speak in front of others. If this person embarrass you. Approach them after class and ask them to not shut you down like that. If this is to a point where it is affecting your grades you need to stand up.
What do you do if your friend was hurt by another friend and was crying, should talk to her.
Thanks for posting. Yes you should comfort her. Find out why she is crying and see what you can do. If the other person that hurt her did something wrong let your friend approach her.
