Bullying tip #42: What can be done about bullies and why reporting works.

Reporting is Just the First Step

Reporting a bully doesn’t make them stop. It is a necessary first step, but it’s just that, a first step. If you really want to stop bullying, you need a strategy.

Don’t just report bullying, have a strategy

Bullying isn’t a one off event. It’s a pattern of harassment that involves multiple incidents over a period of time. You can’t report it once and be done with it. You must have a strategy for what you are going to do IF reporting it doesn’t work.
