In the Yahoo News article by Steven Nelson, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signs ‘Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights’ into law, State Sen. Diane Allen said, “We cannot change human nature, we can change how government and school officials respond to unacceptable behavior.”
- Don’t be The Bully. You can’t control others, but you can yourself. Joining a Bully makes you a Bully.
- Help the underdog. You don’t have a choice. You must help. Even if you feel weird, even if it makes you unpopular, and even if you’re scared. Helping may be telling a teacher. Doing nothing makes you a Bully.
- Never hit first. Always hit back. If someone lays their hands, feet or teeth on you, hit them back harder.
- Never hit a girl, even if she’s The Bully. Let God take care of her punishment.
