  It really hurts to be bullied
Updated 18 September 2003, 10.47

Jasmine says bullies hurt people to make them feel in control.

In her report she explains why she wants bullies to read her report and think twice about hurting others.

"I read an article a few days ago on this website and decided to back its points on bullying.

Bullying isn't about looking good in front of your friends or being the most popular.

In control

Bullies may think it is, but it's about being in control and having the power to be able to hurt someone so much because of something you don't like about them.

Or it's simply because the people they are bullying don't 'fit in' with them.

If you try and tell a teacher about it the bullying gets worse because the best teachers can do is tell them off unless they have real evidence of it.

Feel unwanted

Bullies can hurt people more than they think.

The people who are being bullied can pretend to ignore the bullies but inside you can feel how much it hurts, it makes you feel unwanted and really down.

I hope bullies read this and think twice again about bullying others, because it really hurts to be bullied."

Jasmine, 14, Newcastle
