QUESTION 4
Read the story carefully then answer the questions that follow:

How Abel stopped bullying Alex


Alex was always afraid of Abel. Every day, Abel took Alexs lunch and pushed
him around. Alex tried to keep out of Abels way at break, but Abel came looking
for him. He said that if Alex ever told anyone, he would beat him up in front of all
the other kids in his class. Alex even cried one day.

One of the girls saw him and told the rest of the class that he was a baby
because he had been crying.

Alex was embarrassed and felt bad about himself and about school. He told his
mother in the mornings that he felt too sick to go to school, but she made him go
anyway.

Finally, Alex told his teacher. On the playground the next day, the teacher caught
Abel threatening Alex and they were both sent to the principals office. Abel got
into a lot of trouble at school and at home.

The principal told the whole school at assembly that they must always report
bullying to a teacher or parent. She also said that bullies did not like anyone to
know about what they were doing. So if you tell someone about a bully there is a
good chance the bullying will stop.

Abel learned how to make friends and stopped bullying other kids. Alex never
wanted to be friends with Abel but he did learn to act strong and more confident
around him.
