It just seems like people don't think about preparing kids - and even themselves - for being bullied. People unexpectedly say or do rude things. It's important to be prepared for what ever happens. Role playing with kids works to let them know what they're supposed to be strong enough to handle and when they need to sound the alarm. Bullies never work alone. There's no shame in asking for help.
