    HOW TO HANDLE VERBAL BULLYING

    Do the ‘High Five’

    1. Ignore it. Don't look at the person. Change the subject.

    2. Talk friendly or ask nicely for the person to stop. Be calm.

    3. Walk away. Remove yourself from the person/situation.

    4. Talk firmly and tell the person to STOP! Let the person know that you will report it if he/she does not STOP!

    5. If strategies 1-4 do not work, Report it to an adult.

    Verbal threats of violence need to be reported immediately to an adult.
