I have a close friend that committed suicide this past year. The principal and some police were aware that she was bullied but didn't do anything about it. Tell teachers and if you need to, the police. Tell her parents that she is being bullied and make sure they know if it gets worse. Stay close to your friend and make sure that she knows that asking for help is not going to make the bullying worse. It will make it stop. I wish people would realize that bullying can kill.
Let that person know that the bully is the one with the real problem and that a common fact is that bullies often end up subordinate in the future to the likes of people they once tormented. Just let that person know that whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. He/she should just be strong and know that it always ends, and he/she will laugh and find it insignificant in the future.
I heard that instead of comforting them and telling them what they should do when they get bullied, it is more effective to tell the bully directly. Because even if you tell your friend to defend themself, they probably aren't gonna do anything about it. And if problems get worse tell a trusted adult, or teacher. If you don't feel comfortable about telling your counselor then you could ask your parents to tell them for you.
Stand up to the bully. Bullies like to pick on the weak and the people that don't have others to stick up for them. Takes the fun out of bullying if someone stands up to them. If problems continue, then you can tell an adult such as the school principal. Not that they do anything anyways... But always reassure your friend that they are better than the bully, and that they are perfect just the way they are.
Go up to the bully and say " Hey, you! I don't like the way you've been bullying my friend. Leave him/her alone. " If it doesn't work or if the bully try to physically hurt you or your friend you can tell the school you go to, the police, or a trusted adult. If you're alone with the bully and he try to hurt you, guard your face, kick 'im in the nuts, and punch him in the belly.
It depends on who and how many people are doing the bullying. It has become a SERIOUS thing now.If it's bad and they won't leave them alone tell a trusted adult immediately. Don't take unnecessary chances . Someones life could be at stake!
There are places this person can go to. Check out your computer and I'm sure you will find it. I have seen it on mine, but address I don't remember now. Your hospital should know of a place too. Be careful and good luck. These so-called people/ kids should get a taste of their own medicine..
This is what you should do. Since your friend is being bullied you should go to a teacher and say "My friend is being bullied. If you can don't tell the bully my name." So you won't get bullied yourself. And that's what you should do if some one you know is being bullied. Your Welcome. :-D

I really like Lasun's answer previously given. If the bullying is often, always tattletale on a bully. Authorities can do wonders with bullies. Remember that bullies are maladjusted people. They bully others to make themselves feel important. It is their way of falsely building up their own self-esteem. How sad for them really.

Confront the bully and ask this question "WHY" if you don't ask the question all through your life you will wonder why me. You may or may not get a response, but its worth trying. If that fails their is a strict code of practice and legislation in place to protect you; when that happens you will have counselling and a mediation process; doing this shows your strength in this situation not a weakness. Good luck Sandy
Ask the bully politely what is bothering them.I was bullied and did that,it worked.Then I was bullying someone and they asked me what was wrong and I realized "Hey, what am I doing?"and explained.If that doesn't work,tell an adult.
tell the bully, in front of the friend, "wow you must be freaking jesus or barbie for you to be so perfect to be able to judge someone" then if they say something smart say, "i think you're pretty pathetic. thanks for spending all your time talking about her/him. you must be quite jealous of her/him to analyze her/him enough to critique them"
