Bullying is a bad thing to do. One should not bully people. You feel sadness and a little bit of anger when you are bullied. You want to complain but are afraid to do so as the person/ people will bully you more. You are afraid to be around that person or his / her friends. If you are being bullied, you feel terrible.

You must tell the bully to stop, but if he or she doesn’t, then you must report to a teacher. You can also, tell your parents and they can raise the issue with the school management. After the issue is solved, you can try to make friends with that person but not get bullied again.

Hi Elsa,
What a wise and brave 9 year old. I hope this came out of an activity that made it possible for her/him to meet you!

Hi Elsa. Many thanks for sharing this story. Its a real trauma for a 9 year old . The child seems to have told his story through his drawing. Very courageous of him. I hope his bullying has stopped.
