Internet safety/support - You and your education

- Sooner or later you are going to be heading into your secondary schools. For the majority of children, this can be a very anxious time due to the new environment you are being placed into. Unfortunately you have no option but to start school as it is a compulsory part of your life and education. As the days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months, You will make new friends and if your unfortunate to do so... a few enemies.

- On several occasions, you will find yourself in uncomfortable situations that you may not be able to get out of alone. The majority of staff members will tell you to walk away from a bully, it is not necessary to stand up to them. Doing so will give you self confidence and the knowledge that the bully did not get what they wanted.

- If the scenario becomes a bit more then just a confrontation, You should probably take the matter to a member of staff or your parents. You may find it easier talking to your friends about this but there is little your friends can do, other than stick up for you. This then means you have brought others into the mix, somewhat making you the bully.

- Members of staff and parents are more capable of solving a problem such as bullying so it would be wise to have a chat with your selected choice of person/people. There is no reason to be afraid of a bully as this only eggs them on to bully you that little bit more. There is also a lot of organizations out there to help you out if you do not think your teachers or parents can do anything to help. They will keep everything you say private and can give you the support you need to make the right choices.
