Dealing With Bullying

 CCHS is a very safe school, but bullying can happen in any environment.  Here are some steps to take to deal with being bullied:

 

1. Change Friends   Sometimes it is our friends who are criticizing and putting us down. It may be time for different friends.

2.  Talk to your parents   It is helpful to get advice from someone who cares about you and who may have gone through something similar.

3.  Get the outside help you need.  Ms. Mulroy and Ms. Beltran are always ready to help you with this problem.

4. Focus on your personal goals.  The better you feel about yourself, the harder it is for a bully to make you a target.

5. Finally, if you find yourself being the bully, ask for help. Reaching out to others is the first step in stopping this behavior. 

 

"Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke."  Benjamin Disraeli, British Prime Minister and Novelist, 1804-1881
