There is a BIG problem. In middle school, 40% of the girls go home crying. Because other girls are bullies. Cyberbullies increase the suicide rate in the U.S. I am going home CRYING from school. Because girls can't be mature and respect the girls that did nothing to them. Join this studio to talk about this. If you want this to stay personal to you and me, tell me. I will set up something. I have tons of advice for you. Boys, feel free to come. 20% of boys per middle school are crying at home because of bullies. If this is uncomfortable for you to talk about, tell me why please. Chances are: If you go into a middle school cafeteria, you will find a table of popular girls. And sometimes the girls are mean to impress boys. In middle school, don't worry about that stuff. If you have a bully, stand up for yourself.

*Add projects to help girls and boys to feel good about themselves and to tell bullies to STOP.
Please give advice. Advice so far:
*"If they call you stupid, are they really that smart?"
*"Why would you listen to someone who wastes their time telling you fiction?"
*"Don't listen to bullies. If you show them that your hurt, it gives them power."
* "Bullies like to see themselves as superior. But they really aren't, since they're bullies. Don't let them get in your way."
*"Most of the time, it's really the BULLIES that are havin issues out of school or other problems, so making others upset makes them 'not-feel-alone' or just makes them feel better."
*Bullies are just a test to determine whether you are strong enough to ignore them*
