The answer to the question – does it help to ignore a bully – is complicated. It depends on what you mean by – ignore.
Ignore them and they will go away – doesn’t work. It’s incredibly bad advice to give to a kid. Please stop. What should you tell them instead? I’m glad you asked.
Bullies can be stopped. It isn’t easy, but it can be done. But only if you take constructive action to make them stop.
