Don’t reply to bullying emails. It can be very tempting, but replies will keep bullies interested in communicating. Remember, bullies want to scare, intimidate or cause misery. This is exactly why silence is such a strong weapon. Freeze them out, and they won’t know if you are upset or cross. Don’t reply to texts from people you don’t know. In some cases, bullies send out random texts and wait to see who responds.
