Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. Bullying can take place at school, home or online and might involve someone pushing you, teasing you, talking about you or calling you names.
No one has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad, and if you are being bullied you don't have to put up with it, you can talk to someone about it.
Don't ignore bullying, it won't go away. If you are being bullied, it can make your life really miserable and you need to talk to someone about what is happening.
Ideally you should talk to your parents or carers or your teacher if you feel you are being bullied. If you can't talk to your parents or teacher, a friend could maybe talk to them for you. You must tell someone though. You might want to talk to:
- Auntie or other relative
- Parents friend
- Head of year
- Parent support advisor
- Youth worker
- School nurse
