BULLYING AT SCHOOL
Transcript of BULLYING AT SCHOOL
School bullying is a type of bullying that occurs in an educational setting. Bullying can be physical, sexual, verbal, or emotional in nature.
School bullying may be more specifically defined as an unwelcomed behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be repeated (or potentially repeated) and aggressive.
A difference in power: Kids who bully use their physical strength or popularity to control or harm others.
Repetition: happening more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.
CONSEQUENCES OF BULLYING
The act of being bullied tends to increase some students' isolation because their peers do not want to lose status by associating with them or because they do not want to increase the risks of being bullied themselves. Being bullied leads to depression and low self-esteem, problems that can carry into adulthood.
WAYS YOU CAN HELP TO STOP BULLYING
Students learn many social cues from adults, parents, and their peers. By modeling empathy, tolerance and respect in their actions and communication, students impart these values, and influence the attitudes and behaviors of them.
TALK IT OUT
If students are involved in bullying as either targets or aggressors, they are reluctant to talk about it. About their social experience at school, especially if they withdrawn or are exhibiting unusual changes in their mood or behavior.
INFORM YOUR PARENTS
Students can inform adults about what is really going on and also teach adults about new technologies that kids are using to bully.
Because the use of technology is the fastest growing type of peer-on-peer mistreatment today. It is important for parents to be able to monitor their children's use of online and cell phone activities.
BE KNOWLEDGEABLE & OBSERVANT
Write a letter to the editor of your local paper attend or join your local PTA or school board, or start a community group dedicated to addressing bullying and cyberbullying at your local schools.
EDUCATE YOUR PEERS
Students can teach their peers skills so that they know how to intervene when bullying occurs.
Older students can serve as mentors and inform younger students about safe practices of bullying.
11-year-old boy attempts suicide after bullying over My Little Pony
BULLYING @ SCHOOL
An 11-year-old boy is in the hospital after trying to commit suicide in North Carolina. Michael Morones remains in WakeMed with a tube down his throat and potentially life-long brain damage. Michael's parents say he was active and full of energy even in the face of daunting bullying at school. Michael likes the cartoon "My Little Pony." It turns out, the cartoon has a growing, and perhaps unlikely fan club -- men and boys known as "Bronies." He hung himself off the side of the bunk bed, off the railing.

WHAT ROLE DO YOU PLAY?
Bullies are affected too, even into adulthood. They may have difficulty forming positive relationships and are more adapt to the use of tobacco and alcohol, and to be abusive spouses. Some studies have found even a correlation with later criminal activities.
