Who are the non-bullies and non-bullied?

It is the ideal that all programs aim to produce: kids who don’t bully other kids and have the personality and character traits that discourage and resist bullying. These are some of the characteristics of those students:

  • They don’t adamantly insist on their own way.
  • They are flexible, entertain other agendas, and don’t have control issues.
  • They are willing to compromise.
  • They are able to apologize readily, easily, and naturally.
  • They are able to share and offer to share.
  • They have healthy self-esteem.
  • They have a positive attitude and sense of humor, with the ability to laugh at themselves and to make others feel at ease around them.
