Tell kids that when they see someone picking on another child in person or online, they have a choice. They can be a passive bystander or a brave “upstander.” As an upstander, kids have a responsibility to report bullies to adults who can help.
Tell kids that this isn’t “tattling.” It’s being compassionate and brave. The more kids look out for other students, the more likely others will defend them against bullies, too.
