Transcript of BULLYING

What is it? What can you do? and more! WHAT IS IT? bullying is a form of harassment, when someone is bullied, it means that they are being made fun of for something that they do, say or even how they look. bullying can happen in 3 main ways, there's physical bullying, which is physically hurting someone. verbal bullying, which is hurting someone with words, and cyberbullying, which is hurting someone behind a computer one example of physical bullying is the story of Mitchell Wilson. Mitchell was a eleven year old boy that had muscular dystrophy, which made him have a hard time to do simple things. While on a walk by himself, listening to music on his dad's iPhone on November 11th he was mugged by a 12 year old boy, the boy was after his iPhone. Mitchell then started having anxiety attacks, he was scared to go to school, and going outside by himself. He was scared, he was scared he would see the 12 year old boy again. At one point,Mitchell had even said "if I have to go back to that school, I'll kill myself" and on September 6th 2011 that's exactly what he did. Mitchell was found in bed, with a plastic bag tied around his head, dead. The Bystander have you ever seen someone being bullied? Have you ever done anything to stop it? BULLYING Who is the victim?
Bullies often pick on the weakest link, meaning they go for people with "lower peer acceptance" or people with mental, and learning disabilities. The victim is someone who doesn't have a lot of friends, someone who doesn't have the courage to stand up for them selves. Some characteristics in a victim is, shyness, sensitivity, insecurity, and much more. How could The Silent Majority Have Helped This Situation? Your Voice counts, Stand Up!!! Many people don't know the impact that just one person can make today to stop bullying, people rely on others to prevent bullying and they just stand in the back, but it doesn't have to be this way. Every single one of us can make a difference in the bullying community but how?
Don't be a bystander!, if you see someone being bullied, stand up!
make your community/school aware of bullying
wear pink during bullying awareness week to show that you stand up to bullying
form clubs and teams at your school to stop bullying
and much, much more!
Don't take this issue sitting down, every voice counts and every single person is able to make a difference for the better!!!! Mitchell Wilson The Bully Who is the bully?
the bully is the person who harms another person, but why do they bully?
Most bullies see them selves in a negative way, it may not look like it but some bullies bully because they are insecure about the selves, they bully others to make them feel better about themselves.
Another main reason of why people bully is for social power, bullies usually think that if they bully someone, their personal social standard will be raised, making them "cooler". The Victim The silent majority could have helped Mitchell in many ways. First of all, if anyone was walking by or had observed when Mitchell was jumped, they could have helped him, basically saving his life from the beginning because ever since the attack Mitchell changed for the worse. Also, while reading this story I noticed that even after the assault Mitchell was still being bullied, so if he was still bullied after, bystanders or the "silent majority" could have helped him, by standing up to the bully, making him feel better by talking to him, telling a teacher or adult, and much more! If you have, but you have not tried to stop it, you are a bystander. Research shows, that the more people watching bullying occur, the harder it is for people to stand up to the bully. Why is that? Well people think that since there are others, "the responsibility to take action is thought to be shared among all of those present". Meaning that they shouldn't have to do whats right because no one else is. Another reason of this is, if you were in a big group of people watching someone else be bullied, if no one stands up to the bully, you would feel the need not to as well, why risk your social standard?
