    What advice would you give to a child about bullies?

    If a child encounters a bully at school or elsewhere, how should they deal with them?

    The child should speak to an adult i.e teacher or parent he/she can confide in. that way the child can recieve guidiance about what to do and how to relate with such a bully.

    I agree with betteryou's statement, a child needs to go to an adult, my son was being bullied and I role played with him going to an adult as well as practicing with him how to speak loud enough for adults and other children to hear him.  I taught him two phrases, "You need to leave me alone" and "You need to stop picking on me" and he practiced with me saying these phrases to get other people's attention.  He actually utilized his skills a few days later when two older children were picking on him at recess.

    They only matter if you think they matter. Plus does what they say make sense? Do you fit the dictionaries definition of what they say you are? If not, then they are the idiots.
    That's basically how I delt with it.

    People only try to bring others down if they, themselves are not happy. I tell my daughter to feel lucky that she's happy enough that she doesn't feel the need to bully. That any person who bullies is much less happy than she is and there's no need to pull them further down. If you are bullied (verbally); keep your head up. Say to the bully, 'I'm sorry you feel that way' and walk away. Know that they are only bullying to try and make themselves feel better, deep down they don't want you to feel bad; they just don't know how to deal with their own pain. Don't be angry at them; sympathise.

    If it's physical, then it should be dealt with by an adult. If the victim is an adult it should be dealt with by the police.

    I think the child should be told why there are bullies and the way they behave. Furthermore, he should should be able to confide in his teacher or parents about this problem so that he can be properly guided.
