Bullying is a problem all over. Many children and teens have to deal with more than one school bully, and sometimes even friends can bully. Here you will find bullying resources for children who are being bullied and for those who bully.
“All of this happened 2 years ago, when my mum got a very good offer for a job in another town. This meant we had to move towns. I was very excited. I hoped I can make new friends, explore new places, new adventures…… I was mean to be going to a very good school so I thought in a good school the people must be friendly, but after one day in this school I realised how wrong I was to thought that.
On my first day at school all the boys took my stuff and were throwing in between each other, but this was not the worst think what happened to me. Later on, they started to take my pocket money, if I did not have any at my, they waited for me in the park after school or on the toilette…. They never did wait for me in places where they could get caught by a teacher or an adult. After couple of weeks, I started to come home full of bruises in a thorn close. It was so horrible….”
After reading this story, people could think this a story for a movie. However, it is not true. This story is from a real life told by 14-year-old Jack, which had to experienced this during his teenage years. Although this was a horrible story it finished with “happy ending”. In a present time, many teenagers have problems with bulling and not as many as we wished end up like Jack. How can we recognise bulling at school?
-The child is very afraid to go to school. -The child is returning in thorn close and full of bruises -The marks at school are not as good as they used to be -The child does not seam to have any friends How can we recognised the bully = the child whose is bulling others -His behaviour is very aggressive -He has a lot of friends -He is bringing a lot of money from school, which he took from his school friends -He is coming home very late A bully is usually a only child in the family with lots of money from its parents but not a lot off attention. I hope this would never happen to me or to my friends. There is many help out there for victims of bulling….
Here are five steps you can take if your child is having problems with a bully:
1. Believe what your child tells you. This is an important first step and will help your child trust that you are able to help him with his problem. Accept what he has to say at face value by using your active listening skills.
2. Let your child know that he is not alone. Most children have to deal with some type of bullying behavior at one time or another. Reassure your child that he is not the problem. Nothing he did caused the bully to go after him.
3. If your child is being threatened in a physical or illegal way at school, report the problem. Your child may not want you to do this, or the school may not take it seriously, but violence cannot be tolerated. If you choose not to do anything, that is what you’re teaching your child. You will need to model assertive behavior by alerting those in charge where the bullying is taking place.
4. Teach your child assertive behavior and how to ignore routine teasing. Let them know it is okay to say ‘No.’ Sometimes even friends bully, so letting your child know they can be true to their own feelings and say ‘no’ can go a long way.
5. Encourage your child not to give in to a bully. Giving up possessions or giving into a bully in anyway encourages the bully to continue. Identify ways for your child to respond to a bully - showing assertive but not aggressive behavior - and role-play them.
All children are entitled to courteous and respectful treatment by students and staff at school. Educators have a duty to ensure that students have a safe learning environment. Fortunately, most educators take their responsibilities to stop bullying very seriously. Several states have passed anti-bullying laws and require public schools to have an anti-bullying program in place. Ask for a copy of your school’s policy or check the student handbook to see if your school has policies that will help resolve the problem.
Bullying, Victims at Risk for Violence and Other Problem Behaviors Bullying is not just a normal, if unpleasant, part of growing up, according to Federal researchers. Rather, children who bully other children appear to be at risk for engaging in more serious violent behaviors, such as frequent fighting and carrying a weapon. Moreover, victims of bullying also are at risk for engaging in these kinds of violent behaviors.
Before questions about bullying were asked, the survey provided a definition of bullying to the students. “We say a student is BEING BULLIED when another student, or group of students, say or do nasty and unpleasant things to him or her. It is also bullying when a student is teased repeatedly in a way he or she doesn’t like.”
