Unhappy Can I do anything? - May 24th 2009, 12:36 AM

So I left my old school because of excessive bullying. That really got me down and made me do some stupid stuff.
But since I left I still get shit. When I'm walking around where I live. Online on Facebook with some very mature tagging
So yeah can I do anything about it because its been happening for a while and its really getting me down.

Hey Amelia.

Something to think about, is contacting the parents/guardians of the kids who are bullying you. I don't think many parents would encourage this kind of behavior, it might help get the kids to stop harassing you. If the parents don't stop it though, consider taking it to the police. The police could take the proper steps to prevent this from continuing.

When you're outside in the meantime though, try not to be alone. Make sure to be with at least one other person at all times so you aren't confronted by one of the kids who's bulling you. Online, make use of the report button! On facebook, IM clients etc there's always a report button for harassment, inappropriate content and such.

If the online harassment gets bad seriously consider changing/deleting your facebook, block the kids who are bullying you, change your email or IM accounts...steps like these can keep them from being able to contact you.

Make sure to keep your parents in the loop about what's going on, they can help out in more ways than you might think - helping you contact the police about this, contacting the kids' parents, ways like these. Don't let the kids keep bothering you like this, it's definitely not fair to you and you shouldn't have to put up with any of it. Here anytime you want to talk, take care. <3

You can always do something

Bullying is hard, but never let other people's ignorance or stupid unempower you.
For the facebook issue, can you make it private? Try contacting the FB administration. Also, if they continue, don't read the messages! You don't deserve that treatment, and don't have to read it.

I'm sorry these kids are picking on you, truly I am. Bullying is just one of those things that make me so angry. Be strong, and hold your head high because you deserve to shine just as much as everyone else.

Thanks guys.
My mum said to just ignore it or don't leave the house.
Where is the report button on facebook?

This is the page on Facebook that explains about the reporting abuse system and this is the form you can use to report abuse.
