I have found out that my friendship 'group' are secretly bullying a close friend of mine. I am the only one who knows and I feel torn about what I should do. However, my friend's parents are suspicious of what is happening as well as my parents. My friend already feels terrible and doesn't want to go to school. I like my old friend and my new friends, and I want to stay friends with them both. Because no one knows about the bullying, I can tell no one and let the bullying continue, without anything bad happening to me; but who knows what my friend will do. But I know the right thing to do would be to tell a trusted adult about the bullying, so that it will stop. I really like both of my friends, and I want to remain friends with them both. I am in conflict about what I should do; tell a trusted adult about the bullying and live by my values, honesty and doing the right thing, or turn my back in these values and tell no one.
