6. Defend yourself
When you need to deal with a mean girl, there is no need to become mean too. Don’t use her methods, and if you hear a mean remark don’t try to offend in reply. If you just parry remarks instead of bite back, you will make a bully understand that you do not afraid of her mean words. It is important to remember that if you use offensive words the situation will get worse for both of you. So, no matter how much you have been hurt, staying calm is always the best policy.
