Bullying Prevention: Getting Kids to Support Their Peers

What do we want students to do when they witness mean peer behavior? Bullying prevention expert Stan Davis asked kids what helps them when they are mistreated by classmates.

It turns out that targets of mistreatment benefited most from inclusion, listening and support from peers. One thirteen-year-old student said: “My absolute best friend stayed by me, she was the only one and made me feel good about myself and reassured me that I wasn’t as mean as the other girls. It made me feel more confident that I would be able to keep being myself and not let this ruin my life.”

What implications does this have for educators?
