b'sensitive and jumpy. The uncertainty can lead to tremendous fear. Interestingly, some young people tend to have enormous tolerance for this kind of harassment and do nothing, hoping it will go away. Should you learn that a student you know is being harassed or stalked, you can make suggestions in a non- judgmental way. Let her or him know that this kind of harassment is unacceptable and it is not their fault that s/he is being targeted. Encourage the student to take action by contacting the police for information about options. You can provide support by checking in with the student periodically and understanding that this kind of intrusion can distract a student, making it difficult for her or him to focus on studies. If the student admits to being afraid, the situation may be dangerous; strongly urge her or him to consult with the police immediately.
