In just a few weeks, school will start again. Unfortunately for some kids, the cycle of torment that bullies effect on their lives begins as well. How can young people who face bullying at school respond to and cope with bullying when school starts? Report the bullying to an adult at school. It can be difficult to tell someone what you are going through, but in many cases when a trusted adult at school becomes involved, the bullying can be stopped or at least made better. More and more schools now have some policy or set of rules that keep bullying from blowing out of proportion. What might be harder to stop is cyber-bullying, a form of harassment that occurs outside of school and on social-networking sites. If you are experiencing this, you may be able to report such harassment to the people who run the sites. There are often options on such sites as Facebook to block users who are harassing you in some way. – Allyson
