Be a buddy, not a bully.
Fun Kids have teamed up with Cartoon Network to help you out if you’re worried about bullying.
If you’re being bullied, remember the first thing to do is tell someone what’s happening.
What is bullying?
Bullying is when people are repeatedly mean to someone or hurt them on purpose.
Bullying can happen to anyone at any age and can happen at school, on the playground, at home or online and might involve someone pushing you, hitting you, teasing you, taking things from you, calling you names or picking on you for being different.
Bullying is not ok.
If you get bullied, it’s not your fault.
What is the Buddy Network?
The CN Bully Network is kicking off National Anti-Bullying Week.
Cartoon Network want to show how you can be a good friend and offer support to others that are being bullying.
On Fun Kids, we’ll be helping to spread the message and show what you can do to help stop bullying – whether it’s happening to you or someone around you.
Where can I get advice?
You can access professional advice, relevant tips and support tools online at cartoonnetwork.co.uk/beabuddy.
You can also contact ChildLine, the leading UK helpline for children and young people.
You can call a ChildLine counsellor for free any time you need to (just ring 0800 1111) and they can help you think about ways to make things better.
Every day this week we’ll be sharing anti-bullying videos from Cartoon Network and their celebrity ambassadors.
Keep checking back for more information on how you can be a buddy, not a bully.
