Stops the Bully
"My Kids Would Never...Bully"
Before we move
In every bullying situation there are always 3 types of people involved:
-and the bystander
We previously defined bullying as participating in any interactions that are either physically or emotionally hurtful toward another person. And doing so in a manner or frequency that creates and imbalance of power and/or disrupts the operation of the school.
We all know the roles of the
bully and the bullied
But what about the bystanders?
Bystanders are those who watch bullying happen or hear about it.
There are two types of bystanders...
HURTFUL and HELPFUL...
-instigate the bullying by prodding the bully to begin
-encourage the bullying by laughing, cheering, or making comments that stimulate the bully
-join in the bullying
OR they passively accept the bullying by watching AND DOING NOTHING.
Passive bystanders provide the audience a bully craves and the silent acceptance that allows bullies to continue their hurtful behavior.
-directly intervene by discouraging the bully, defending the victim, or redirecting the situation away from bullying.
-they go get help! By rallying support from peers to stand up against bullying or by reporting the bullying to adults.
What a lot of bystanders don't know is they have the power to prevent or even STOP the bullying!
Don't believe it???
SO! Do you think ONE person, one bystander can change the outcome of bullying?
NBC's Dateline did a study and here's what they found...
The study also included a group of boys with the same result. It only took ONE bystander to speak up before the others did the same. It only took seconds for the bystanders to out number and over power the voices of the bullies.
If you're the bystander
what can you do to help NOT hurt?
-you can change the subject
-you can tell the bully to stop or that it's wrong
-you can tell someone who can help (you know... like a teacher)
-you can call the tip line
Moral of the story?
Don't be just another face in the crowd.
Stand up and do what's right, even if what's right isn't popular.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
