Never confront a bully by yourself. If you see someone being picked on, get an adult – maybe even a police officer – involved. Don’t be a passive bystander.
As a bystander, be part of the solution.
Go to someone else and keep talking until someone helps and the bullying stops.
Welcoming body language shows you are friendly and willing to communicate. Whereas unwelcoming body language shows you are NOT interested in engaging with people.
Let’s go back to that rule about treating others the way you want to be treated. What can you do to respect others?
Having empathy means you can identify with what someone else is feeling. In other words, you can imagine what it would be like to be in that situation. So what does empathy have to do with respecting others?
Say you know of someone who is having a hard time. Having empathy means you can see that person is struggling and you can imagine what that must be like.
