How to Deal With A Bully

Bully Me?

Imagine this. Today is the big day: B-ball tryouts and you are stoked. As you're warming up, a really good player (but a jerk) says to you in front of your peeps, "Oh C'mon (your name here), what are you doing here? You suck at basketball" They all laugh, you say nothing and try to pick up your face. If that ain't bad enough, you get picked on every day after that. Whazzup with that? What can you do?

Anti-Bully Skillz

Okay, if you want to be a better player, you practice. Here are some skillz you can practice to help you deal with bullies.

  • Ignore them. Remember bullies like attention. Don't give them a stage to be a clown.
  • Step up. If you are afraid, it's okay. Just use your fear to face them and not let them beat you down. I don't mean fight back with your fists, but use your mind. Keep your head up and be positive.
  • Speak out. Let your friends, moms and pops, teachers or somebody know that you are being bullied. They will listen and they will be able to help.
  • Spread luv. Lead by example. Don't put other people down cuz you feel hurt. Be nice and learn to laugh with your buds, not at them.
  • Luv yourself. When you give yourself the right props, nobody can make you feel bad. Wake up every morning, look in the mirror, smile and say, "It's going to be a good day".

Celebrity Quotes

Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3

To be honest, this is probably just something you have to bear. I know that sometimes relatives can be irritating, but they only visit often because they care about you and want to see you (: Unless there is a real reason you don't want them to visit - for example, if they are unkind to you - then you should just endure it.  Or you could mention it to your parents and see if they can sort it out? This is something lots of kids have to deal with, me included, and it's just part of life! You are lucky to have grandparents who care about you so much c:
