Things You Can Do to Prevent Bullying Right Now
1. Set Clear Rules - Start your bully prevention program by setting clear rules together as a group. Everyone—staff, students, parents, community—must be clear of expectations, know how to recognize bullying, understand the consequences of bullying, and know that bullying matters. Sit down together and figure out what your school stands for and show that character matters in your school.
2. Teach How to Recognize Bullying - Everybody in your school must be able to recognize bullying. “Bullying is a pattern of repeated aggressive behavior, with negative intent, directed from one child to another where there is a power imbalance.” – Dan Olweus, Norway
3. Teach How to Report Bullying - Students must be able to safely report incidents of bullying, knowing when to report, how to report, and where to report. Students must know that they are heard and that you will back them up. Anonymous options must be provided.
4. Teach How to Respond to Bullying - Everybody—both students and staff—must know how to respond when they see bullying.
5. Teach How to Refuse Bullying - Help victims of bullying learn how to refuse; otherwise victimization continues. Do this by teaching specific assertive skills.
6. Replace Current Beliefs or Behavior - Teach bullies how to act differently—how to be kind. Develop empathy, conscience, and self-control (anger management) in bullies.
