How do you stop a bully? With nearly one third of all school children facing some type of bullying on a regular basis, the answers don’t come easy. And, as aggressive behavior becomes more sophisticated, it becomes harder to recognize. Bullying doesn’t just include physical or verbal abuse. It includes cyber and social bullying as well. The comic, How to Be a Hero, shows how to spot the subtle signs of bullying and how to understand the direct and indirect effects on everyone involved. It also offers specific actions a person can take to address bullying. Even more importantly, How to be a Hero calls on everyone in a bullying situation to step in and change the dynamic: to be a hero. Only when everyone is accountable for being involved can we create an environment where bullying is no longer tolerated.
