Transcript of Bullying
What is a bully?
According to information by Conroe Independent School District, a bully is generally defined as a person who exhibits power in some manner whether its their size, popularity, athleticism or knowledge, and they thrive on feelings of dominance.
What makes a
Bullying is a learned behavior and kids often resort to bullying because that is the only way they know how to solve problems (Seattle, 2009).
Who does a bully
usually pick on?
The bullied child might have poor social skills; they may be passive, withdrawn, and appear weak; they may also be annoying and provoke others
with pesky behaviors or name calling; they may feel isolated, hopeless, and fearful.

What relationship does the
bully have with its parents?
An in-depth study by Smith, Twemlow, and Hoove (1999) of aggressive children had the following significant results:
None remember ever being held or cuddled by either parent;
100% of the bullies and 70% of the victims and bystanders had been exposed to violence in the home;
All the bullies played violent video games;
Bullies & Books
None of the studied bullies, victims,
or bystanders remembered
ever being read to
by their parents.
Bullying is without a doubt a serious problem. Bullying hurts the victim and the aggressor. With most of the bullying taking place on school property, it seems logical to focus on anti-bullying efforts at the school level. But research also indicates the serious impact the student’s home life has on bullying. Anti-bullying information needs to get into the homes of students at an earlier age if there is to be any hope of stopping the vicious cycle of bullying. For more information, please visit:
