Social Stories About Bullying

Being Bullied

Being bullied is when the same person or same group keep trying to hurt you on purpose.

Someone is being bullied when the same person or group keep on doing things like:

Saying hurtful things
Making you do things you don't want to
Trying to hurt you physically
Stopping you from joining in with games and activities with others

If someone does this only once or twice it is not called bullying but it is still not OK.

If you think you are being bullied you can:

Tell a teacher
Tell a parent
Tell a friend
Tell the bully to stop

No one should be bullied. If you think you are being bullied you should tell an adult. Telling an adult means that they can try to help you stop the bullying.
