Stop bullying outright? You'd have to totally alter human nature. That's not gonna happen.

Stop a particular bully? It depends on the bully, the victim, and the nature of the bullying. I think that's the biggest problem. There is no absolute, fool-proof answer that will solve every situation. Sure, you might stop one bully by punching them in the nose, but another bully will just escalate the violence until you're in the hospital. It's the same with all the other options. They may work, but they may backfire horribly and make things worse. In some situations certain options may simply be unavailable.

Anyone looking here for advice, or giving it, needs to understand that YMMV. What worked for you and everyone you know may not be a good idea for someone else to try. Not all bullies are cut from the same cloth.

Bullying can't be stopped. Also, methods of reducing bullying will work for some, but not for everyone. That said...

I had my fair share of verbal abuse when I was in school, but I managed to subdue it by more or less acting like I didn't give a shit about what was said. I never gave them the satisfaction of a reaction, I either just shrugged it off and/or laughed it off. However, doing completely nothing can also be dangerous; it can show that you're a push over and the abuse may keep on going. But I realise that it's easier said than done to just be calm and stand up for yourself.

So yeah, don't be afraid and DO NOT throw a hissy fit, whatever you do.

Note that my advice relates only to when I was getting verbal abuse.

I agree with the people who say bullying can't be stopped.
It's in the human nature to want to feel superior to others, due to greed, envy, and the desire to be envied.
I'm not saying humanity is bad, but we're like this now because of how we have shaped society. And we can't simply reform society...
I mean, if we could eliminate greed, we'd all be living in a communist or even a Utopian country. And as we all know, Utopia's don't exist.

If you're talking about a smaller scale, like in highschool... I still think we can't eliminate bullying. Sure we can punish the "bullies" but fact is, humans like to feel superior in a collective group. Find something different about someone, and you excersize your power by tormenting the individual.

I mean, the education system (in Canada) already has all these events to stop bullying and even as children, as are taught to love one another, which is BS. We still bully even though 3 kids in my district have committed suicide in the past 2 years due to bullying... Everyone only addresses these problems AFTER they die. On facebook, all the "white cool kids" are posting up statuses about how bullying is bad and stuff... and the come back to school just to mock/bully an indian guy...

So all in all, I believe bullying can be minimize, but not stopped. Humanity acknowledges what is wrong and what is right, but in the moment, no one realizes the extent of their own actions as the desire to feel superior overrides that common sense.

The best thing to do is tell someone, like your parents or a teacher, about what's going on. Also start a journal of all the things the bully or bullies are doing. Include the date, who was involved, and specific details especially place. Use that when you to and talk with someone. Also include when and who you talk about it with. I had some problem in junior high and high school. But having a record helped a lot when I went to the principal and/or teachers. Asking for help is the first step!

I was bullied alot as a kid, so i started bullying people myself. But later on i saw that it was wrong, and i think its a normal thing about growing up, you get stronger if you move past that phase. One of my best friends is acctuali one of them i bullied the most during my childhood, but we moved past it when we went to college. I don't know quiet how we did it, but we did.

So i think to stop bullying the person doing it have to realize what he does is wrong, it will not only make him a better person but will also help him alot later in life. You dont gain respect for beeing the thoughest and pick on the weaker ones, it makes them fear you. To gain the respect of another person i belive you have to be friendly towards them and be kind. So if the bully don't realize what is wrong himself, it won't stop. If you set rules and make it a offence as harrasment or abuse, the bully will most likely take out his anger for beeing punished on another person.

As a self defense teacher I always teach to be direct, unfortunately some of the kids come to 1 lesson and expect to be able to beat up 4 guys straight away. Its not the case -__- yes self defense classes work but it takes a lot of time and effort.
