How do you stop people from bullying you?
There are many ways to stop people from bullying you. Here are some ways to stop bullying from occurring:
If you decide to ignore a bully, they will slowly begin to get bored about being mean to you because you don't show any emotions. Bullies love to see people cry so if you don't do that they will get annoyed and leave you be.
If you do decide to ignore them, you must remember never to talk to them, or show any emotions. You must walk away from them.
Sometimes, however, bullies that like violence may pick you up from the collar, throw a punch or kick just to make you listen to them.
Stand Up to Them
Standing up to a bully has its advantages and disadvantages.
The advantage of standing up to a bully: If you stand up to a bully, you must speak to them in a firm voice to let them know that you are not afraid of them and that you want them to leave you alone. They could leave you alone.
The disadvantage of standing up to a bully: If you try to stand up to a bully, they may still remain teasing you. Some bullies that like to hurt people physically may throw a punch or kick you to watch you cry.
If you want to stand up to a bully, you must remember not to whisper as this will make the bully think you are scared of them. You must speak in a loud but firm voice to make them feel afraid of you too. You must NEVER start teasing them, throw a punch or a kick as the bullying will continue and they won't be the only ones in trouble.
Tell a teacher or a parent
If you tell a teacher or a parent you can be assured that the bullying will be stopped. What you must remember though is that you should NEVER talk to the bully's parents as parents only ever believe what their children tell them. Bullies will lie a lot to people and this will make people believe them.
By telling a teacher, they will be able to talk to the bully and their parents. If nothing happens, the teacher can take the bully to the principal to have them dealt with. If bullying still continues the principal will have the right to suspend them or expel them.
By telling a parent, they will be able to get in contact with the school or with the bully's parents to make it stop. It would probably be better though if parents didn't get in contact with the bully's parents as a fight may start.
Overall, the safest and most effective way of stopping bullying is to tell a teacher; that is if you go to a school. At least they can deal with the bully immediately to insure that nothing further happens.

Answer 2 -Make sure an adult in authority over you knows what is going on A.S.A.P. This can help because when they know the bully has ought to stop. The person who has authority over you is like a threat to the bully because she/he can punish or call the parents. The bully will continue what he is doing to you without you telling an authority. -Warning teachers about the situation will help a lot.

He/she will probably come up with several plans to help you stop the bully and deal with it or she/he will see the bully themselves and solve the problem with him/her. -Going up to the bully and standing up to them face to face can sometimes help but can also be a bad decision. The bully may not think of it seriously enough and will continue to bully you. But it might all just be misunderstanding. Maybe the bully thought you did something to you that he/she didn't like and wanted to get back at you. But that is not the right way to solve anything. But whatever the situation is you should try to talk it out. Maybe he/she will understand. -Avoiding the situations with the bully and avoiding him/her in the hallways at school is a good idea but you will have to face the bully sometime. Whether which one will be your choice and decision I wish you the best of luck and remember that the bully isn't any different than you. We're all human. - Tell them to throw their key board away and just block and delete them! Another answer There are many effective way to deal with bullies.

Anyone can get bullied. Kids, teens and even adults. If you don't want to get bullied you should be kind and stand your ground.
There is always something to do if someone else is getting bullied. If the bully (or bullies) is doing physical damage, then it is best to get a respected adult to break it up. It is never a good idea to break them up yourself; you might get hurt or get caught up in the process. If the bully (or bul…lies) is doing mental or by word harm, it is best to not join in. You should speak with an adult and get the bullied help. You should make sure their feelings are not hurt and talk to them. Say: "How's your day?" Or "Are you okay?" Make sure you let them know you care, because even if you are just one person, one person is enough to brighten someones day. Become their friend. Someone is less likely to get bullied if they have a good friend along with them. It is good to let them know you are always there for them. Trust me. ( Full Answer )

There is no such thing as 'small people.' Groups of people every day make a big difference in many things and as an example Erine Brockovich was one of them. If you don't know who she is then look her up and learn from it. One person may not make a big difference, but one person can start a good ide…a and build on it.

Ooh, a very interesting question. Off the top of my head, my initial reaction was: "No! That'll just take you down to their level!". But then I thought about it; thought about how bullying is actually stopped by teachers or any other type of authority. It all boils down to how you define bullyin…g. The first definition that I will use will be: "Use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force him or her to do what one wants", which is the definition Google provided to me. If this is how you see the definition of bullying, then yes, you would actually have to BULLY, to stop others from bullying, as you intimidate them and force them to do what you want them to do. The other definition I'm going to discuss is Wikipedia's "Bullying is a form of aggressive behaviour manifested by the use of force or coercion to affect others, particularly when the behaviour is habitual and involves an imbalance of power" definition. (Link of the definition can be found in the related links). Contrasting from the previous definition of influencing with superior strength, this definition concentrates on the aggressive side. If you think about it, when a teacher confronts a bully, they talk with an understanding and controlled voice. Shouting at children or bullies will not work, since they usually come from abusive households, and being shouted on is almost a daily routine for them. The second part of the definition, where it states that it is "habitual", this also distinguishes from the first definition and is definitely not the appropriate way to stop bullying. So, it depends on how you define the term bullying, and how you plan on stopping bullying, as there are many methods and definitions for both. ( Full Answer )
There are a number of reasons why victims of bullying may become bullies. The reasons are similar to why victims of other things end up victimizing others in similar ways. First off, bullying is what they know and what is modeled to them. When you are bullied, you might study the bullies, become …obsessed with the bullies, and spend every waking moment thinking about them. So over time, you begin to think like the bullies. Even the Bible warns about being around angry people, since you may learn to be like them. Next, bullying can function as a drug or as a pressure release valve for some. They find they are frustrated, and this is how they cope. In some ways, stunted emotional growth can be a cause. When you are being bullied and are constantly living in a panic mode, you are not growing emotionally. So you don't get to develop more healthy coping skills, and so you might be more prone to frustration. There may be "exception thinking." They might reason that their abuser was wrong, but they are somehow justified. There may be Stockholm Syndrome, where victims of kidnapping and violence often take the side of the aggressors as a survival mechanism. There may also be some sort of entitlement or reparations type thinking. They may feel society owes them because they were bullied, or they may feel that anything they do is payback to society. There are power dynamic issues where people who get their power taken from them by others will in turn take it from others. That sometimes happens with inmates who were victims of sexual assault while in prison and having to go back to prison because they became rapists. ( Full Answer )
they are allowed to do it . they are experts at making it look like their victim started it, thus victims get punished and bullies coddled . they enjoy making others look and feel bad . they are encouraged by behavior seen in TV sitcoms . their parents don't see it as a problem, just normal chi…ldhood social interaction . etc. ( Full Answer )
Tell on them, or get help. Fighting back is a surefire way to get beaten up by them. Telling on them will definitely get authoritative adults involved and tell them to quit it. . There are at least three answers to this. You can join them; beat them up; form a herd. Note how bullies tend to tr…avel in pods, three or more together. Well, what keeps you from doing that? Surely you have enough friends who travel the way you do. And choose your allies well. Diversity and honesty are better than fascist homogenization any day. They ought to tell you that you are slaking, and you ought to want them to. While you are at it, wrestle. Wrestle often. This is the foundation of, and the oldest martial art on earth. It will build physical, mental, and emotional strength, endurance, and skill. And then you can wrestle the bully. This might make him your ally, or might just scare him off. Stick with your herd in case he tries to escalate the situation. When it comes to authorities, that could be a mixed bag. Sometimes, the legal or political authorities won't be much help to you. Either they won't want to be bothered, or might turn on you for being a sissy. Bullies can serve a function in society, keeping the rest of us on our toes and keeping us from settling for less than we are. If it comes to a fight, take inventory. Can you win? Would you want what you would win? Societies want a member who can fend for themselves in a fight. And mind you, bullies rarely fight fair. Whatever you choose to do, remember, the bullies get that way because they were bullied, maybe at home. And, it is not a good idea to 'Punish evil with evil' as the I Ching says. Cultivate your standards, let your herd help you get them reasonable and solid, and don't let the bully try to lower you. You are responsible solely for your choices and actions, and none other. Hope that helps. ( Full Answer )
If you are a bully, then stop doing it. While you are trying to stop, don't have any contact with your victims. Ask your parents to help you stop, unless they are bullies. In that case, you will have to change without them, and you might even have to put up with them sabotaging your efforts. Ask tru…sted adults to help you, and maybe even get your peer group to help you stop if they are interested. If things are bad at home, you might have to contact local agencies for help. You would do best to try to learn the following skills: 1. Assertiveness. That way you don't have to resort to aggressive behavior to get what you want or need. 2. Self-confidence. This is tied only to you and doesn't depend on anyone else. Taking up hobbies to enjoy alone might help you feel a sense of personal power so you won't have to take power from others. 3. Anger management. If you are angry, you don't have a right to take it out on other people. 4. Spirituality. This doesn't have to be church or religion. But bullies often feel alone, and it is good to be connected spiritually and feel a part of something greater than yourself. Even meditation is good, and there are health and mental benefits to that. 5. Tolerance for diversity. We all need to learn how to accept and respect people who are different from ourselves. 6. Compassion. We all need to learn how to be compassionate towards all people, even those we don't like or are making bad choices. ( Full Answer )

People in a community should be informed about the rise of bullying and cyber bulling and anyone can do their homework and put in an article in their local paper or even go door-to-door to explain the rise of bullying and why it is so important to be proactive and force the educational system, havin…g laws changed and some parents to get more involved in stopping bullying.

From a Christian viewpoint: The simple answer is no one can doenough to stop it but God. However, there are many complex issuesregarding the bully's actions and the victim's reactions that aChristian would have to consider. The actions of another person arenot really in our control to stop. A Christ…ian parent wouldcertainly want to train their children to never be the bully,because that would break the second commandment of Jesus, which waslove your neighbor as yourself. A Christian parent would also do well to instruct their childrenhow to deal with getting bullied. This would certainly includebeing open and approachable to their children so that they wouldconfide in them about the bullying. The parents could then maybetake appropriate steps to help resolve the cause or theopportunities for the bullying to happen. They would also want toinstill a sense of confidence in their child so that even if theydo get bullied, they do not feel as affected by it. Teaching themthat Jesus himself was bullied while he was on Earth if a great wayto show them that even strong, important people can be bullied bythe intolerant and ignorant. Showing your own children love,consideration, and beneficial instruction is the best way to dealwith bullying from a Christian standpoint. ( Full Answer )
