Bullying is so cruel. Its hurts feelings. Bullying can also make people loose focus in school. It is not something to do for fun or on a dare. If someone says so or u hear it being spoken don't just hide or be a part of it confess. It is a way to stop and prevent bullying.

Being bullied is hard. It can happen to anyone. The key is not to let it get to you. What truly matters is how you take it. You can either get angry and try to get them back OR brush it off and carry on with your life. It can't hurt you if you don't let it. Always remember that you're not alone. People care about you. Its okay to reach out.

Governor Mark Dayton signed the Safe and Supportive Minnesota Schools Act into law on April 9, 2014. Now, the important collaboration between students, educators, administrators, and parents begins as schools develop safer learning environments for every child in the state.
Julie Hertzog, Director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, said, “Bullying has negatively impacted too many students for too long. Now that this law is in place, educators will have resources to address the behavior and students and families will know that they have the right to be safe at school.”
