Many children handle bullying by doing nothing. Obviously, they are doing what adults told them to do. It seems like sound advice: if you do nothing, disguise your anger, fear or pain, you won't make a bully happy. But adults forget one major thing: kids aren't always good at following instructions. When they tell you to do nothing, you think you are but you are not! Instead, you look scared and act frustrated. You turn away or react, and bullies love you either way! Then, to make matters worse, you don't tell or remind adults that it is still happening.
