Transcript of Bullying
-Bullies are the unpopular kids at school
-The tough and aggressive bullies are anxious and insecure individuals who use bullying as a means of compensating poor self-esteem
National Education Association estimates that more than 160,000 children stay home from school every day because of bullying
Nearly 30 percent of students who reported being bullied at least once or twice at school during the 2010-11 school year, fewer than 40 percent told an adult at school about it
Research and surveys indicate that as many as half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years
1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4 percent of the time.
2005-2011 Bulling incidence remained the same
No one else has the power to make us feel bad about ourselves
it's our responsibility to filter out the stuff that people say that's inaccurate or rude
"Words only have the power I give them"
"Bullies aren't cool" - promoting hate
Instead of changing the world around them- focus on the victims themselves
Reducing Bully Retaliation
1. Have child to deal with bully directly
2. Have child consider what bully really wants
3. Have child respond to bully as they would a friend
Teachers don't know how to act
Victims are told to tell authority then the problem only becomes worse
If your child was being bullied, what would you do?
Bullying vs Teasing
-Pattern of behavior
-Imbalence of power
-If you asked them to stop, they would
-Teasing goes both ways
-Have a close relationship with them
1. “not my concern.”
2. fear of the consequences
3. responsibility is (or should be) with the victim “they should stick up for themselves”
4. personal action to stop the bullying would be useless, or might even make matters worse
Reasons for not helping victim
Lesbian, gay, and bisexual- 4x more likely
Disabilities- 2-3x more likely
Low self esteem
Perceived as weak
Anonymous and distributed quickly

What Doesn't Work
"No tolerance" policies ignore the fact that some teasing and unkind behavior to others is part of typical development
-schools over reacting to certain events
Group therapy for bullies
What is bullying?
Sonia recently moved to Lincoln Heights and just finished her first week at the local middle school. At 5 feet 8 inches, she towered over most of the students in her seventh grade class. While looking for a place to sit during lunch, another student called to her, “Hey, shorty, there’s a spot over here!” Sonia paused for a moment and another girl from the group waved her over. “Don’t pay attention to her,” she told Sonia. “That’s just the way we talk to each other. They call me Einstein because I got all C’s on my last report card.”
Harmless teasing or hurtful language? Why?
For years, Angel has made fun of his best friend, Dave’s, peanut butter obsession. “You’d eat my gym sock if it was covered in peanut butter,” he once told Dave. One day in science lab, the students designed mazes to test the intelligence of white mice. When the teacher told the class that they would be baiting the mazes with peanut butter, Angel called out, “Better be careful—Dave might get to the end of the maze before the mice!” The other students broke out in laughter.
Harmless teasing or hurtful language? Why?
