Your first and best option is always to let responsible adults know that you are, or someone you know is, being bullied. Inform your parents, talk to your counsellor, and let your principals know. Bullies would like you to think that things will get worse if you let adults know. The truth is that the best way to resolve it is to bring it into the open and let supportive adults help find a solution.
