This issue has become much more relevant for teenagers in the 21st century due to innovations in Social Media Conflict vs. Bullying Conflict Bullying A disagreement between two or more persons of equal power Repeatedly causing someone to feel stressed, humiliated or threatened in an effort to assert power or control over that person Conflict Equal Power- the individuals in the conflict are equals or equally matched Imbalance of power - (size/ age/ popularity/ number difference) Can happen on one occasion Happens repeatedly Both parties are emotional Strong emotional reaction from the victim Problem resolves and parties may be friends again Parties involved are NOT friends Starts as an accident- not purposeful Purposeful targeting of one person by another person or group Parties aren't afraid of each other Target/Victim feels in danger in some way Scenarios Every time Lindsay passes Luke she bumps him and says, "Watch where you're going, fresh meat!" All of Lindsay's friends laugh. Luke starts to skip school to avoid Lindsay.

Maddie thinks Lindsay stole money from her. She confronts Lindsay in Physics class. Lindsay starts taking off her jewelry and tells Maddie, "Bring it on if you think you can!" Dealing with Bullying Who has the most power in a bullying situation: the bully, the victim or the person watching what is going on? The Answer If you said, "the person watching,"
YOU ARE CORRECT Bystanders Most Students Are... ONLOOKERS - They observe the bullying, don't support it, but do not look to help either 1. They don't know what to do or how to stop it.
2. They are afraid that if they try do do something, they may do something wrong and make the situation worse
3. They fear that if they intervene, they may be next to be bullied
4. They think their friends may reject them if they reach out to someone who is an "outsider." Catholic Social Teaching Call to Family Community and Participation Thesis Bullying is not an acceptable action because it degrades others physically and emotionally. We must be aware that we are all made in the image of God and no one has greater value than anyone else Catholic Social Teaching Life and Dignity of the Human Person This theme teaches that every single person has value and dignity that cannot be taken away from them. We are all made in God's image, which means that no one person is better than another. Bullying is an imbalance of power in which one person asserts their dominance over another. This goes against the Catholic Social Teaching because bullying is treating others without dignity. This theme calls us to live according to the common good of society. This requires respecting the rights and social well being of all people. Bullying goes against this because when people bully, they are showing disrespect to another human being either physically or emotionally. If you are a bystander that defends the person being bullied, then you are participating and defending the common good and living out this theme of Catholic Social Teaching How Onlookers Can Help! S ay what you feel. Tell the bully that what they are doing is unfair T A N D U P ell a trusted adult. Report bullying. When it isn't safe to intervene alone, get help. sk other friends to help. If it is beyond what you can do alone, ask friends to join you in helping the victim. Having people close by can discourage the bully. ever leave the victim alone. It shows support and bullies are less likely to pick on someone if they are with others on't encourage the bully. nderstand the difference you can make ut yourself in the victim's shoes. Treat them like you would like to be treated. Credits “Bullying Info and Facts.” National Bullying Prevention Center. Pacer
