Have you ever argued with a friend or made him/her a joke? It is common among teenagers who know each other. Bullying is not a joke, it is a physical and verbal violence implemented by someone who should be helped understanding the miscarriage of his/her actions.
Who is bullied, usually tends to believe his/her problem cannot be solved or understood by anyone, in any ways. It is not like this. Who is violent has a series of unsolved issues which he/she brings with him/her and that you can help solving.
If you are provoked, remember that it is always good to stay calm and not answer to his/her provocations. Trying to be smarter and funnier than him/her it is a nice idea: it would make him/her feel embarrassed. Responding to his/her provocations is never a good idea.
Bullying can be dangerous, pushing us to isolate. Asking for help can make a difference: a parent, a teacher or to the police. If you need help, call Telefono Azzurro: an expert you can trust – who knows kids’ needs – will be online to listen and help you.
