All adults or friends must know when something horrible is being happened to you so they can help you with the situation. You must be kind to all classmates or other. If YOU see someone getting bullied, walk up to them and show them that you care. Be kind and take them out somewhere or walk that person being bullied to class. If someone is bullying you, try as much possible to ignore them. If it's too much for you, tell the principle. Explain what's going on but if you were being disrespectful to the "bully," then apologize until they accept your apology. If they don't accept your apology and they keep bullying, then that's when you stick up for yourself. If they touch you, push them back, then walk away.
