What do pupils do when they are bullied?

Over 127 schools in the United States took part in a study of bullying in 1999. In answer to a question about their reaction to bullying, nearly all the children said they did something about it. Most of the children (approximately 44%) said they told an adult, approximately 34% told the bully to stop and 32% tried to get away from the bully. Others responded by telling a friend, but some reacted by staying at home and some admitted to hurting others. It was far more common for boys than girls to react by hurting others.
