Thanks for the feedback!
a bystander is someone who doesn't act out when they see someone getting bullied. the best thing i think would be to do is tell them to stop or talk more with the bullied kid.… if you see them at lunch or break by themselves you should talk to them. don't let them deal with it by themselves.
A bystander is a person who is present at an incident or event, but does not participate. An example is someone that may have seen a crime scene or a spectator at an event….
spectator, witness, onlooker, watcher
The Bystander Effect is a psychological phenomenon where bystanders will not take action in a crisis due to the feeling of diffusion of responsibility. Everyone in the cro…wd thinks that someone else will act.
American bystander rule: there is no legal duty to rescue or call for help to aid someone who's in danger even if helping poses no risk whatsoever to the potential rescuer.
NOTE: A quick Google search suggests that the term is mainly medical. ___ In the context of the Holocaust the bystanders were the people who stood aside and watched …but did nothing. The other groups were the perpetrators and the victims. Reasons for standing by and doing nothing are likely to have included: * Fear * Indifference * Mild approval * Unwillingness to believe what they saw * The attitude 'It's none of my business/nothing to do with me' I haven't heard the expression bystander inhibition before. Note that the neat division into perpetrators, victims and bystanders has its problems. Some people who started as bystanders later became victims, for example.

I like "eye-sander" or "Lysander" (a real name)...
Under the Good Samaritan Rule (which is not valid in all states), someone could not be sued or prosecuted if, in good faith, they voluntarily rendered and/or summoned aid for …an imperiled stranger. Under the American Bystander Rule a person would have to have the legal duty to act or aid, and be required to do so, if they are employed in some "helpijng occupation," or if they have some other legal obligation which requires them to act (e.g.: a special, or familial, relationship with person in distress). The two are clearly different and the reader can draw their own conclusion about the pros and cons of one versus the other.
The correct spelling is, Bystanders. So you are right.
That is the correct spelling of "bystander" (person nearby or witnessing an event).
First, "bystander" refers to a person nearby something, such as a crime, but not involved in that thing. "Passive" could either mean that the bystander is not active, inferrin…g that the bystander should be doing something but is not -or- "passive" could also simply be emphasizing "bystander." Context should point to which of the above is true.
The American Bystander Rule is more dominant in the U.S.
nothing, he/ she stands and watches something happening
