5 Best Bus Bullying Tips from the Bullying Guy

Bullying Guy talks about bullying on the bus

Bullying on the bus can be a real problem. Here are 5 tips to deal with bullying on the bus:
1. Tell somebody you can trust – it might be the bus driver, a teacher, a parent or even a friend on the bus.
2. Find a friend to sit with if you can. Look out for each other. It’s even better if you can get more than one friend on your side.
3. Stay away from the bully if you can. Sit as far away from them as possible.
4. Some bullies are just trying to get attention and feed their ego. Sometimes these people will stop if you just ignore them.
5. Try to be as confident as you can – don’t let the person know they are bugging you. Sometimes just speaking up and talking it out can be the best way to deal with this kind of thing.

We will come to your school to share stuff about bullying & respect in a fun way. Check out www.standupagainstbullying.com and remember: ‘Stand Up Against Bullying’ on the bus!

Dufferin Peel Catholic School Presentations

Just returned from a great day at St. Agnes School in the Dufferin Peel Catholic School Board in Brampton Ontario. We presented our ‘Cyberbullying – Got 2 Go’ assemblies. Here are two tips:  

1. Don’t give out passwords – even to friends. It can cause problems later, big-time!
2. Also, please don’t give out personal information on-line. Not even about your school or holidays.

Just remember, “Stand Up Against Bullying!”.

Don’t Keep It Inside, Tell Someone You Trust!

Why do so many of us clam up when someone says or does something mean to us? That’s how bullying can start. I can tell you, there have been times in the past when I lacked confidence. I would question myself. Did I say something wrong? Did I give a mean impression? Honestly, we all lack confidence at certain times. We all have to build ourselves up sometimes.

One of the best ways to deal with this is by deciding not to keep these thoughts inside. Talk about it with someone you trust. Write down your ideas in a journal. Share with someone you are sure you can depend on, but other than that, keep it private.

This can really help to deal with bullying situations in your own life.  


Celebrate ALL Cultures on St. Patrick’s Day!

A poll carried out the last week of January, 2010 of about 1500 Canadian adults revealed that 68% have heard racist comments in the past year and 31% have witnessed a racist incident in the past year.
People aged 18-24 are reported to be most likely to report racism and the majority of people in this same age group have the positive belief that racism is declining. (Racism in Canada -Leger Marketing Poll)
Racism can definitely contribute to bullying behaviours. Help stamp out racism. Here’s how:

Speak up. Be willing to report. Be willing to speak against racist jokes or racial slurs. Be sure to set the best examples possible for others. Try to be non-confrontational in your approach, but be confident and secure. Create an image in your mind of a world without racism and believe it can happen. 

Today is St. Patrick’s day. Celebrate the Irish, but celebrate all cultures of the world by setting a positive example for others.
Our youth are highly influenced by the behaviours of the rest of us. Every one of us must take the stand – Stand Up Against Racism!

Surf in a Central Place

We have been presenting our ‘Cyberbullying – Got 2 Go’ programs today at a JK-5 School. The students were totally excited and picked up key concepts as well. The songs, videos and role-plays really grabbed their attention.
One of our messages is to remind children that when surfing the internet, their computer needs to be ‘in a central place, like a kitchen or family room where everyone goes’. Being on-line should not be a secretive activity for children, and adults should not model this secretive behaviour to children either.

Go Beyond the Limits to Solve Bullying

The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.”
Arthur C. Clarke

Sir Arthur Clarke was a well known author and inventor. He is most famous for the novel 2001: A Space Odyssey which he wrote with Stanley Kubric.
In 1945 he published his idea that satellites would be an effective method of communication. His idea to communicate using satellites has now become reality. Sir Arthur Clarke was definitely a forward thinker and left our world a better place.

Looking for Actors for Bullying Prevention Programs
