"School bullying is most commonly defined as the exposure of a student, repeatedly and over time, to intentional injury or discomfort inflicted by one or more other students" (Olweus, 1993; Rigby, 1996).
Reasons Kids Bully
School is a community.
Students learn how to be good citizens.
All people are morally equal.
We are all capable of well-informed and
intelligent opinions.
We can solve any problem if we work
Communication is the key.
Common values are agreed upon through
social interaction.
"A person who is trained to consider his actions, to undertake them deliberately, is in so far forth disciplined. Add to this ability a power to endure in an intelligently chosen course in the face of distraction, confusion, and difficulty, and you have the essence of discipline."

reconciliation - feeling care and support from those who have been harmed,
shame management - acknowledging the harm that has been done, and making amends

Promising Future Trend
When intervention is necessary...
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper-thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
Six feet under screams, but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there's still a chance for you?
'Cause there's a spark in you
You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the Fourth of July

'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go "oh, oh, oh!",
You're gonna leave 'em falling down oh oh
Democratic classrooms have to be "built"
All students have an equal voice
Rules are developed together
a person who stimulates or annoys especially by persistent criticism
