The most ridiculous advice ever! Jezebel.com obtained a flyer sent home to 5th grade students in Lincoln, Nebraska on how to deal with bullies. These “rules” include the worst pieces of advice on how to handle bullying that we’ve ever seen.
“Rule #2 Treat the person who is being mean as if they are trying to help you” What?!
“Rule #7 Do not tell on bullies.” Did a bully actually write these so-called “rules”?
We are hoping that the parents of the children at Zeman Elementary School have a nice long talk with their kids to undo the damage that this flyer could potentially have caused.
