What to look for.
"American schools harbor approximately 2.1 million bullies and 2.7 million of their victims."
Dan Olweus, National School Safety Center.
Our group does not completely agree with this categorization.
This is what we came up with
Children who bully are impulsive, dominate others, and show little empathy.
without intervention, the frequency and severity of the bullying behaviors may increase
Patterns of bullying learned in early years can set children on a course of violense later in life
(Batsch & Knoff, 1994; Baumeister, 2001)
Many believe children who bully do so due to low self-esteem, however it appears that they actually bully because of an over inflated self-esteem.
ex. if a bully feels insulted or is criticized they will respond more aggressively than normal

many bullies also report that they feel powerful and superior
Research suggests that many children already learn to bully by preschool age.
Children who are bullied tend to be younger, weaker, and more passive than the bully
they can appear anxious, insecure, cautious, sensitive, and quiet
They tend to react by crying and withdrawing
Often lonely and lacking in close friendships at school
Without adult intervention these kids are likely to be bullied repeatedly causing further social rejection and low self-esteem
Some victims become "provocative victims" meaning that they learned to respond aggressively to perceived threats by retaliating against both the aggressor as well as others
The Psychological and Physiological
The Physical and Psychological
Boys typically engage in more physical and direct means of bullying
Boys also tend to continue bullying at later ages in life
Girls tend to engage in more psychological and indirect bullying
ex. social exclusion and rumor spreading
Girls are also more likely to be involved with cyberbullying
Due to indirect bullying being less apparent girls' bullying may be underestimated
Roland (1989) reported that girls may be involved in bullying as much as boys
Bullies can continue their violent
behavior well into adulthood

Be abusive toward their romantic partners, spouses, or children as adults

tend to abuse drugs and other substances during adolescents and adulthood

more likely to get into fights, vandalize property, and drop out of school
Feelings of loneliness even depression

Skipping School (may continue even after bullying ceases)

grades may drop due to inability to focus

Begin to avoid certain places (playground, bathroom any place where bullying occurred)
In some extreme, yet increasingly common, circumstances children can bring weapons to school

Harassment and bullying have been linked to 75% of school-shooting incidents

can lead to substance abuse as well as encouraging mental instability
Whats Being Done?
As of October, 2010, 45 states had bullying laws, while there were no such laws in the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota

Hotlines have been setup to help any victims that need to talk; 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

The Highmark Foundation has allocated 10 million dollars since 2010 to fight bullying
Counselors will typical take some classroom time to lecture students about bullying and treating each other with respect.

This way students will be given strategies and a empowerment feeling when they are in a bullying situation.
They are also given private sessions if needed.

Meeting with other (cluster) schools to share and go over plans (also applies to child abuse and other topics)
