The project's methodology is based on dynamics for the establishment of bonds and questionnaires for the collection of data on the students' experience in relation to bullying. The results obtained showed that more than half revealed that they had already suffered bullying, indicating that there is the presence of this bully in this age group. Furthermore, they suggested that the stimulus of empathy in children reflected positively on their lives and on society as a whole. Therefore, the need to encourage respect since childhood is concluded, in order to minimize these practices and their consequences.
