  My idea to help stop bullying
Updated 08 December 2003, 09.05

Bullying is a serious problem for many children at school.

In her report, Rosie tells us about her idea to try and get the bullies to stop hurting others.

"Bullying is a serious issue in schools.

But it's not that schools ignores it, it's the fact some people who are being bullied won't tell anyone.

No names

I think that every school should have a box somewhere, where people can write about their problems and not put their name on it, if they don't want to.

That way the bully can be dealt with and the people that are being bullied never have to reveal themselves.

Some people just don't want to tell anyone that they're being bullied, but others are scared that they will get bullied even more if they tell.

Very hurtful

If these boxes could be introduced to schools, then maybe people wouldn't dare to bully people in case they were caught.

Bullying is very hurtful and many people go through some form of it at least once in their life.

Maybe these boxes could help stop bullying."

Becci, 12, Pontypridd

opening quoteThat won't work, how will the teachers know who's doing the bullying and who's being bullied if it's a 'no names' policy? closing quote
Asha, 14, London

John, 13, Bentley

opening quoteWe do that in my school, it works most of the time but some people make things up to get people in trouble.closing quote
Daisy, 13, Bedford

opening quoteI think that Rosie makes a valid point. I was never bullied in school, but I know a lot of people who were and it's a very tragic experience. closing quote
James, 15, London

opening quoteI totally agree with you. I've been bullied and that would have really helped me. It's not always easy to talk to a teacher, especially one I don't know very well. closing quote
Sarah, 14, Birmingham

opening quoteI think this a great idea. I have been bullied and know what it feels like and I was too scared to tell anybody. There was nothing I could do without saying my name. closing quote
Laura, 12, Derby

opening quoteI think a box in every school would be a really good idea.closing quote
Sophie, 11, Gosport

opening quoteRosie, I think your idea is a good one. I think I might introduce it to my school, even though everyone in my school is hardly ever bullied, it would be good to have one, just in case.closing quote
Charlotte, 10, London

opening quoteI agree very much with Rosie's report and I think if these boxes are introduced then it will not only help the victims who are getting bullied but the bullies too.closing quote
Alex, 13, Enfield

opening quoteI think this is a good idea because bullying is an issue. But if someone tries to bully you just walk away!closing quote
