How to Deal With A Bully - Part II

Ask Janet anything.

Bullying

Bullying is Whack

Let's pop about the whack guys and girls (you know who you are) who get annoyed, blow their top and try to get even. They bully at home and at school with words, fists and sometimes guns. It is crazy. School should be a place where you can be cool, have fun and get your brain-groove on safely.

Bullies are Weak

Bullies are not strong, they are weak. Why else would they pick on other people to make themselves feel better? Not only that, bullies try to make fun of kids that they think won't fight back. Why?... Keep on reading

Lookin' for Luv in All the Wrong Places

Bullies are lonely. As LL Cool J used to say, "I need love." Bullies want their props; they just want to belong. The only problem is they just don't know how. Bullies may be mean or act a fool just to get attention and try to be in. "Acting a fool" is what gets most bullies in trouble. They don't know when to stop. Cuz y'all know for every action, there is a reaction (physics 101, dude.) People react to bullies in one way, THEY DON'T LIKE THEM.

Bully-Hatin' Club

Join the club. Now this doesn't mean bullying the bullies right back. None of that "taste of your own medicine" junk here. Instead, spread luv at home and school. Be nice to people no matter who they are and what they look like. If you don't know if you are a bully or a bully-hater check out last week's beat.

Learn how to deal with bullies- bully skillz coming at ya next week.

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!
