Hello! @lall2401 here! I decided to make this studio because me and a friend (maddiegenius (inactive)) were making a plan to raise awareness for bullying and I decided to do the same on Scratch. If you see or have any problems with bullying, feel free to post them here, I will support you in any way that I can. And please, help stop bullying!
Here are some things you can do if you are being bullied... (All Tips below this line are from http://www.stompoutbullying.org/information-and-resources/about-bullying-and-cyberbullying/are-you-being-bullied)
-Walk away when the bully approaches you. Try and imagine you’re walking away from a stranger. Both you and your body language will show you don’t care.
- Concentrate on thinking about something else (maybe a concert you want to go to, or a new outfit you want to buy.)
-Yelling STOP and walk away. Keep walking and don’t turn around no matter what they say.
-When a bully calls you a name or tells you your sneakers are ugly -- look at them in the eyes and laugh hysterically and say, "I know my sneakers are ugly." Keep laughing hysterically and walk away without any additional conversation
-When the bully harasses you and calls you names, look them in the eyes, LAUGH and walk away without any additional conversation.
Great comeback lines- just be sure to walk away and not react after you say them:
-Do you feel better now?
-If you're talking about me behind my back, clearly my life is a lot more interesting than yours is!
-Let’s move on!
-You finally found something funny to say?
-I’m not sure why you keep saying these things about me, but I don’t care.
-Be really cool and stop this!
-Why are you talking to me?
-Here we go again. This is boring. Let me know when you’re done.
-I've been called worse from better.
-Wow, did you come up with that all by yourself?
-Pardon me, but you seem to think that I care.
-Think it's your fault. Nobody deserves to be bullied!
-Fight back or bully a person back
-Keep it to yourself and just hope the bullying will "go away." Make sure you report the bullying.
-Skip school or avoid school or afterschool activities because you're afraid of the bully
-Be afraid to tell. Telling is NOT tattling! It's the right thing to do!
-Hurt yourself. Nothing is that hopeless that it can’t be resolved. As painful as bullying is, NOTHING is ever that bad that you should hurt yourself in any way.
