There are plenty of ways to prevent and stop hazing starting with reducing the power between members and leaders. Members of fraternities and sororities do not have an innate desire to haze, but they are often placed in situations where they can exert power over new members. By creating an atmosphere where new members can discuss their experiences with existing members without punishment, members will find fewer opportunities to haze. Another way is to give members time to reflect their actions. Members in a high-pressure hazing situation are more likely to think irrationally and act in demeaning ways. Planning pledging activities in advance and allowing members to understand and discuss their role in the proceedings reduces the possibility of making poor, hasty decisions.
