Think you might be getting bullied but don’t have enough information to know for sure? Have you been bullied in the past and have some handy tips and tactics to share with those going through the hurt and pain of being bullied? Come ask your questions and share your tips and tactics here.
If you have been troubled by a bully whenever you are on your own then try to find a couple of friends to keep you company during the time you have a run in with the bully. It might deter their plans for you since you are not by yourself. If that doesnt stop them at least you have some back up to help you or worst case they can run for help.
Oliver if you dont have a group to walk with then just wait for a few people to walk the direction that you are going and either walk directly in front or behind them and make it appear to others that you are with that group. Sometimes just having someone around to witness what is happening or go get help is enough. When you are alone you increase your chances of becoming a victim to a bully.
If you cant find someone to walk with you Oliver just explain to an adult that you have been getting picked on and you would really like it if they could just walk with you and make sure that nobody bothers you. If a kid ever said those words to me there is no way I would turn them down and im sure everyone would do the same for you buddy.
Change your route if you are having a problem with a bully. You can always zig when you normally zag and try to avoid the confrontation all together. But I agree with the above poster that said to just ask an adult to walk with you because if an adult is around you will never have to fear anything from happening.

Try to make a plan with a group of your buddies to start walking together before you run into your bully. Just say lets all meet at the tree or the gate in the morning and just hang out until class starts so you have people around you in case something happens.
I agree you are much less likely to be bothered when you have people by your side. Bullies like to corner their victims when they are alone so just adding a few strangers to your walk will increase your chances of being left alone.
Without bringing up the fact that you are to nervous or afraid to walk alone just tell friends you get bored walking alone and would rather have friends there for the good company then they wont know that they are just semi protecting you and you can keep it private.
