Stopping bullying can be done. What doesn’t work, is just hoping it will stop. Wishful thinking, is nice. But it doesn’t make bullying stop. What does? Ahh – that’s the million dollar question.
What you need to know about bullies is that it doesn’t matter what you do, they will still attack you. So you might as well let your geek flag fly.
A target doesn’t cause bullying, but they can behave in such a way that will make it stop.
The problem is these terms is that they describe the impact of the behavior, but not the actual behavior. Bullying manifests as specific behavior and actions and to get it to stop, you have to focus on what exactly is happening.
