How do you respond to bullying?

Eastside Catholic High School

“To try and put myself in their shoes. Try to see where they may be coming from and go from there. From there, I just try and kill it with kindness because a bully can’t do much to you if you’re nice to them! Kindness is your best weapon, as cheesy as that sounds!”

Malia Bachesta, senior

“Well, first I’d tell ‘the bully’ to stop, but if they don’t respond to that sort of thing, I guess I would retaliate, in an appropriate way, trying to avoid violence if possible.”

Jimmy Hudson, junior

Issaquah High School

“I feel bad. Cyberbullying is a tragic and prevalent problem in our country that should be stopped.”

Jack Gentsch, junior

“It’s a terrible way to approach problems that could be solved by any other means. The fact that it is happening without a face attached doubles its effect on the bullied because they cannot comprehend or fix the situation.”

Alison Lee, junior

Liberty High School

“Bullying needs to be stopped because it ruins the lives of many children.”

Darren Peterson, junior

“I would respond to bullying by being the bigger person by not saying anything negative back.”

Kelsey Johnson, senior

Skyline High School

“I would tell an adult and kindly ask them to stop.”

Sarah Penberthy, senior

“I don’t know. What would you do?”

Ryan Wilson, junior
