Anti Bullying  Guide

This anti bullying guide is designed to help students in W.H.S to stop and fight back against all types of bullying that can occur on a daily basis. This is mainly for the younger students from 9th and 10th grade.


We are common students that have been the victims of bullying and have also bullied other students, therefore we have experience on this particular topic.



From the class of 2016 Jesse Mendoza, Michael Gurrola, Frank Valencia, Irwin Velador, and Jesús Cabello.

   Introduction to              Bullying


Bullying is the act of provoking or causing mental or physical injury from one student to another. Bullying has existed for many centuries, and it can always take different forms. Bullying can occur in all different ages, and many conflicts can be between students, teachers, and many other staff members. Because of the technology advancing and is continuously upgrading we can have different types of bullying which is cyberbullying.  


  • There is a enormous amount of kids bullied everyday during school. According to the article Life After Bullying by Mark Brown  “70 percent of all parents surveyed said their children have been bullied at school.  In fact, according to the National Education Association, 160,000 kids stay home from school  each  day to avoid torment.” ( P.2) 

  • “60 percent of those characterized as bullies in grades 6-9 had at least  one criminal conviction by age 24” (Bullying in Schools. P 6)

  • Bullying can be actions such as making threats, spreading rumors , and it can also be excluding someone from a group on purpose.

  • Bullies often have personal problems such as their parents beating them at home,  or even emotionally hurting them. It can also be problems with parents the bullying is facing so the bully takes all his/her anger towards the victim.

  •   Kids who bully others can also engage in violent and other risky behaviors into adulthood


 Examples of Bullying

  • Physical bullying

    • What it is: when one person or a group of people picks on or harasses another person in a face to face confrontational manner. These bullies tend to be bigger than their victim

    • How to deal with it: stay in group, make freinds, tell an adult, fight back (rare ecasions) (

Verbal Bullying

•Involve your child in character-building activities  and be involved in these kinds of activities  yourself.

•Establish PTA-sponsored programs in your school  that  reinforce the importance of tolerance and respect.

•Encourage school  special  assemblies and bring in outside speakers to raise awareness about  this issue.



The Parents 

  • Lead a class  discussion on bullying. (Eleanor T. Migliore "Eliminate Bullying in Your Classroom")

  • Write a specific  no-bullying policy into your classroom rules.

  • Teach social skills routinely through specific  lessons and in conjunction with other  activities  throughout   the day.

Westminster High School Policy 

Bullying has the ability to affect a person’s way of living. “There are two types of victims: passive victims and reactive victims” (Kuther.) The person who is isolating themselves, avoiding confrontations or showing signs of depression is the reactive victim. The person who gets bullied and aren't even phased, is the passive victim. Parents play a major role on how their kid handles bullying. Depending on how they’re raised can determine whether they’re tough and confident or sensitive and hesitant, kids handle bullies differently. It’s the parent’s responsibility to take the initiative and prepare their child for real life situations. If you or someone you know is being bullied, tell an adult or go to one of these websites we provide to help prevent bullying.
