Teen Vogue uses psychology to explain how to handle a bully; why you might not jump in

Lets face it bullies suck! They provide nothing to the betterment of your learning, say for causing people to have bad days. The question is what would you do in the following situation?
You are in the hallway of Jane Doe Middle School, you see a crowd of people all around a disturbance. You go and find your best friend being bullied by the biggest jerk in the school. If you look around at the crowd you will most likely find many people not jumping in to help your friend. Why is this? It is because of what is known as The Bystander Effect: an idea that someone else will step in and help so why should you?

Well, according to the article from Teen Vogue you don’t need to step in but you could send a text to the victim saying that you are with them. People need others to be their for them, don’t be the person who leaves a friend in need. You can receive many more tips from the article on The Huffington Post. ___ my review
