*If the bully is an adult or young adult and is threatening you or hurting you, that is called abuse. Talk to someone immediately, or call Kids Help Phone(1-800-668-6868)
 
*Do not ignore bullies who are doing things that involve touching you, even if they are not strictly attacking. Odds are, those things are serious (say, if a bully pulls up your shirt and licks your back, or else pokes you with either their finger or else a tool, like a pencil; the latter example is an attack, but invalidation happens and people can be convinced an attack is not really an attack). If a bully does anything like that, tell an adult ASAP. Even if they seem to be doing something similar to what you did to them (say, you bumped them once and forgot to say sorry, and now the bully bumps you repeatedly), they are still in the wrong and you should still tell them to stop and talk to an adult you trust about it. If the adult brushes you off, find another adult you trust more, and tell them.
