My Son was bullied and it completely changed him he becàme withdrawn and never left the house for almost 2 yrs except to go to school. The boys bullying him lived near us and werw always threatening him. When 1 of them was semt to the same school as my son he started asking for money all the time he wouldn't say anything but it was obvious he was taking momey to this boy.  They must of found someone else to bully or just grown up finally as it eventually stopped. My daughter was also bullied at school by boys who wiild hit her leaving hand marks on her that i could see at lunchtime through the fence as we live across from her old school. I took her out if there to home school her when they didn't do anything to help her. Now she is in a new school and is happy. Bullying has to stop ut ruins lives

Aiden - 16 - Ohio

I was bullied by nearly everyone in my middle school and it had lasting effects on me. Because I am a diagnosed autistic, it has been easy for adults to blame it on me for not knowing how to "fit in." Even though I did struggle, that was not an excuse for others to treat me badly, and that claim I was the one with "bad social skills". Furthermore, I was bullied simply for being different, and it is never reasonable to tell a child to change their personality so that "normal" kids will leave them alone.

I continue to hold hope that new generations of kids like me will not have to grow up thinking that there is something "wrong" with them, and have to give up their uniqueness to protect themselves from judgment. It is not a way to live one's life, especially not in childhood where imagination should be celebrated instead of punished.

nobody deserves to feel or to be harassed,threatened, belittled, wrongly touched, invalidated for their truth, or harmed intentionally. Nobody deserves to feel unsafe - especially in an environment like school or with peers, which is supposed to not only support who you are individually, but encourage you to learn and want to learn. You are loved so deeply. You deserve to know this. I care because love is powerful, and hate cannot take away the love being poured into your soul. One harsh voice may be loud, but one loving song is even louder. I care because you are worthy. I care because you are talented. I care because you will get through this. This moment of difficulty is not the rest of your life, it is only one moment in time out of millions of great ones you will experience in this life time. I care because you are special, and I want you to know this. Bullies appear powerful. Bullies hurt others because there is something so damaged within their souls, they become greatly jealous of the good and talent in another person. That person so desperately wants to heal, they think the only way is this is attainable is by taking what is not theirs. Don't let someone take what is not theirs. Keep you head high and remember you are so incredibly loved. You are moving mountains!

Bullying is not something that should be ignored or some might say "pushed under the rug". Everyone in this world was born not perfect and the expectations of being perfect are far stretched these days. Bullies need help too, so why not offer a solution to their suffering so instead of them picking on someone else they could help someone. The victims of bullying need to speak up about it. Believe me I used to be bullied and never said anything about it. If no one knows then no one can help. We need more counselors in our school systems for the children to freely speak to about problems at home or at school or even just fears of the future. Be kind and repeat. Kindness can spread even more than hate. One last thing, before you make fun of someone or make assumptions about their life, imagine you are standing in their shoes. Their life may be difficult. We cannot go on our own assumptions. If you want to know something about someone just ask them.

I've always wondered, how would bullying work?
I've been ignored.
I've been excluded.
I've been forced.
I've been abused.
And yet, I still wonder, what are the effects, and how can I stop it?
I can't fix being ignored.
I can't fix being excluded.
I can't fix being forced.
I can't fix being abused.
But I can fix myself.
Someone else has to fix everything else, but it's not easy.
I've stopped bullying.
I've stopped abuse.
I've stopped loneliness.
I've stopped almost everything.
Except for my own problems.

Just imagine, waking up in the morning. You think you’re going to have a happy day. Soon, this idea pops into your head. “Was this just a dream, or did this really happen.” You suddenly feel anxiety and stress. You’re worried if it was real or not. You open up your devices, and you go to your social media. “This really happened?” You’ve become more depressed, and yet you still may think you might have a good day. Throughout the day, your social media are popping up and you soon begin to cry as you read them.

Evie - 13 - Illinois

I have been dealing with bullying my whole life since kindergarten I am soon turning 16 and for the last two years, it has been getting really bad where I have other students telling me to go die and I get pushed into walls, lockers, and occasionally down stairs. I have been cornered in the bathroom and had several girls bash my head into the cement wall until I was unconscious. I have told school authorities, emailed, and called about it. For anyone going through some similar situation You are not alone and being bullied has nothing to do with you... please stay strong you are needed 

Bre - 15 - North Dakota

At my school, there is not much bullying happening. People care about each other, and if they don't like someone, they just don't talk to them. For instance, there this kid named Havi. He has autism, but when he walks around, people say his name, give him high fives, and listen to what he has to say. Other kids in my school that are different may bring in action figure or stuffed animals. Instead of people saying that that is weird and they should stop bringing them, they say something like, "Spider man, my favorite. cool action figure." I care because I want more schools to be like this one

Gus - 15 - Wisconsin

I remember that when I was in pre-k, there was a girl who was always really mean to me.she would pull my hair, call me a brat, throw mulch at me, and one other thing. One day when we were brushing our teeth after lunch, she was standing behind me in line. then randomly, she grabbed the back of my dress and pushed me into the back door of the classroom. while all of this happened, my teachers just stared at us. the school never told my parents or the other girl's parents. A few months passed and I finally told my mom the entire story. Let's just say that I did not attend that school for elementary. 

Desiree - 11 - Central West Florida

Earlier in the school year, I was bullied by a girl who sat at my table. She would hit me every day, and sometimes steal my food. I had had it with her nonsense, so I went to the principal at my school. He dealt with the problem and took all the necessary measures to make sure it did not continue. If you are being bullied, go to someone. I know it sounds cheesy, but adults and staff actually do help prevent the behavior of the bully.

Hunter - 12 - California

I care because I don't want anybody being bullied just because of who they are doesn't mean to bully other people. I don't want any of that to happen to anybody.

Atsy-Leen & Gracie - 11 - Honolulu Jarrett Middle School

Grace - 12 - Texas

i was bulled because of my hair

People are jerks and they think that by pulling other people down they can feel better about themselves. I care because words (or even a lack there of) can have a huge impact on others. I care because innocent children attempt suicide every day because they don’t want other people to make them miserable anymore. I care because so often the bullied become the bullies and the cycle continues. I care because school should be a place where people learn, not where they can only focus on how evil their classmates are. I care because no one should have to quit something they love because of the people who want to hurt them. I care because no one deserves to feel like they’re nothing. I care because being bullied feel like crap and it feels like it’s never going to stop and all of a sudden you stop feeling like you’re worth anything. I care because bullying has left its scars on me and every single one of the people I call my friends and it makes me furious when that happens to other people. I care because anyone who has gone through bullying and not become cold and evil is a friend of mine. I care because I believe in a world in which everyone can feel like they matter. I care because everyone is special and they need to know that. 

Kennedy - 16 - North Carolina

Bullies can cause good people to lose themselves and make them feel lowly, thinking that they can't seem to belong or which makes them distant to other people. And if they get distant, they'll feel lonely, making them even more prone to being made fun of, which can lead them to depression or make them have trust issues.

Once they think that they can't take it anymore, it can lead them to committing suicide, which can sadden every single person who cared about that child or that victim.

Akita - 13 - Philippines

I'm working on a project to prevent bullying

Avery - 10 - united states

Leslie - 14 - Detroit Chicago

I have personally have had most of the kids from my grade start rumors about me that arnt true and call me rude names.Its ruined any confidence i had and that is so horrible that kids out there are constantly being brought down by the people around them for no reason.Please speak up when you see or hear about someone being bullied because that could be you and no one deserves that.

Bullying never really goes away. I am 20 years old and have been bullied since I was 6. I still get bullied to this day. This a pain I've had to deal with for 14 years of my life. Time has not healed my wounds. People need to realize that their actions can effect someone's life forever. We need to come together to put an end to bullying once and for all.
