You may not see it happen, but there are many ways that you can prevent bullying. Bullying is the leading cause of teen suicide in America. So many people are affected by bullying a year. There are many different types of bullying that could go on. One of the types of bullying is verbal bullying. When you are verbally getting bullied, there are many things that you can do to stop it.

One way that you can try and get the person who is bullying you to stop is just simply, yet firmly say, these words, “Please stop bullying me, I do not like it and it hurts my feelings.” .

For this story I had the honor of interviewing The Deuel School Districts Councilor, Mrs. Lexi Seeley. I interviewed many students that have talked extremely highly of Mrs. Seeley. “I talk to the students involved and find out the details of the incident, then address it as appropriate for the situation. It can vary in may way,”, answered Mrs. Seeley when asked the question, “What do you do when you see somebody getting bullied?”.

There are many ways that people deal with bullying, but the worst way that people deal with it is when the person getting bullied, just does not say anything to anybody and just takes it. The best way to deal with bullying is to talk to an parent or a trusted teacher or a trusted adult.

“Bullying is such a large issue in our school, and the school district does not have a very strict discipline for bullying.”, said Sophomore Hallie Shea. Shea has been to talk to Mrs. Seeley about multiple things.

When you were to see somebody getting bullied, what would you do? The average of high school students that stop and help compared to the high school students that do not stop and help is 25% to 75%.
