The best way to stop a bully would be in a nonviolent manner. With that being said, you have every right to defend yourself. If the bullying is happening at school, speak with your teachers, guidance counselor, and principal. They need to be aware of the situation, so they can keep an eye out. Your parents need to know, don’t keep them out of the loop. Most schools have placed a strict ‘No Bullying’ policy into effect.
