I actually think that the bully is more guilty, but the people who watch her/him bully other people are still guilty because, they should have stood up for someone else.
i think that if you are watching somebody getting bullied you are just being a bully also because you are letting it happen to someone else. if you wee getting bullied you would want someone to stick up for you.
Yes I do agree. If you see it happen you should do something
if i saw someone getting bullied I would stick up for them because i don't want to be as guilty as the bully is and also I would want to help my friend because its the right thing to do
If I saw someone getting bullied I would go stick up for them because watching it happen and not doing enything is just as bad as being the bully
Yes you are as guilty if you just watch someone get bullied. You should stand up for yourself and make that bully stop bullying you.
I think that if you watch bulllying haooen and dont do anything it is basicly bullying. I think this because bullying is hurtful and if you watch someone getting hurt and dont do anything it means you dont care or you support it.
I think the kids should have either told Mr. Terupt or fought back. I also think just watching makes you a bully because you’re not helping out. It actually makes you a coward because you are also scared of the bully and don’t want to get hurt because its not fight. it just encourages the bully because no one wants to stop him or her.
idk what the question is it just says do you. So I will guess the question. I agree with you because if you don't stop the bullying by not telling anyone, then you might as well be bullying him/her too! Don't watch bullying!
I do because when you bully somebody you make them feel bad. When you just sit their and watch the person bully somebody it really means that you don't care that their getting bullied.
i agree with you because watching it happen is like letting it go on. i know everyone has courage within them even if its just a sliver. i know its not easy to do but its the right thing to do.
I agree because if you don't do anything about what is going on, its almost like your bulling the boy or girl who is getting picked on.
For example if a boy is picking on a girl because she has glasses, and if you don't tell the teacher, that boy will keep on picking on the girl with glasses. That's my opinion!
It is bad because if you don't stick up for yourself people can bully you for your whole life
I agree with this statement because if you don't do anything when you see bullying, you are basiclly helping the bully by keeping it from a teacher.
I agree with your opinion because of course you get in trouble if your the bully but if your watching some get bullied go instantly to that person.
I agree because a bystander is a witness. I also think that that information is valuable to let a teacher know. If you don't stop it it will become worse and worse and worse.
I don't because u could get yourself involved in things u don't need to be in. Its not right to just watch though u should tell a teacher and stay out of it. I only think that because getting bullied can lead to suicidal thoughts
I think that your as guilty because you can stick up and be nice while you are doing it. It happened for so long and no one did any thing about it.
I agree with your statement. If the person being bullied doesn't stand up for them self and you see it happening then your kind of bullying them by not doing anything when you know it's happening.
i agree because when u see someone getting bullied and you are not doing anything you feel guilty that you are not doing anything. Like in 5th grade one of my my friends was gettig mad fun of and i felt like i should do somthing and i did.
I agree with what you said because a bully is someone who consistently bees mean or hurtful to your face or behind your back. If someone is bullying someone near you and you stand up to the bully and tell them to never bully you or that person again, then that person will thank you and remember you for what you did and think of you as a hero. You will also remember it as something in your 'good deed' list. If you instead just stand there watching in amazement of the situation, then that person will remember you as a kind of person who doesn't care about anything no matter how important it is. Also, you will regret it for life and it will haunt you forever. Again from personal experience, when me and my friends were being bullied on the bus, no one stood up for us, and it hurt a lot. After a while, I told my mom and she told everyone else's moms what was going on. After a few weeks, she told the principal and that was that for the rest of 2 years. 3 years later (last year,) the bully was once again on the same bus as us. He made fun of us for being younger than him. I tried standing up to him by telling him to stop it a lot, that a year difference isn't that much, that he was also a fifth grader once, and that when we are at least 65 years of age we start wanting to be YOUNGER instead of being older and at senior centers, people who are YOUNGER take care of the people who are older. Getting bullied is an awful feeling especially when you are too shy to say anything back. When you feel inferior to others, bullying should not be an idea that comes into your head. PLEASE.
i agree with you,because if you dont stick up to the bully and your watching you are actually being a bully. it does not make any sense but im sure that if you were being bullied and tried sticking up for yourself and it did not work, then you would want someone to help you, and then you would think that people watching are being bullies because there not doing anything about the bullying.
I do agree that if you don't try to stop the bullying you may as well be on the bullies side. Almost everyone knows how it feels to be bullied so everyone should try to stop it.
i do agree because all the bystanders just stand there and watch someone get bullied instead of doing something productive.
I think that your opinion is correct because if you don't stand up for your self people will keep on being mean to you and bully you for the rest of your life
I do think you would be just as guilty because all the kids that Alexia bullied were with someone else at the time and none of their friends stuck up for them. Like when she called Dainelle fat by making that snotty remark during the project circles everyone heard but never said anything. I think that when kids don't stick up for their friends they lose all their trust with that specific peir.
I do agree because if the bully is bullying someone and you dont stick up for them your not doing anthing. Your just as bad as the bully. If you stick up for them the problem stops. If you don't nothing get better and your still just as bad as the bully. Then your friends loose trust
