To Bully Or Not To Bully?
That Is The Question. What Effect Does Bullying Have On People? Bullying can lead to many things like self-harm and suicide. Let's take Amanda Todd for example. When she was 12 years old, she made a mistake. People started to bully her for it. She was bullied so much that she went into severe depression and inflicted in self-harm. At one point, the bullying was too much for her to handle. That one mistake lead to her suicide at age 15. An Araman Drive Production By: Jarsheni R. and Meliha H.

According to dictionary.com, a bully (noun) is defined as “a blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people.” Now, in English. A bully is someone who uses their power to intimidate weaker people. Bullying is anything you do to hurt another person, whether it is done intentionally or unintentionally. Whatever the case, the effect will always be the same. The victim will always end up hurt, physically or even emotionally. Bullying can come in many forms such as: Physical SOCIAL Verbal Cyber DID YOU KNOW??? 64% of kids have been bullied at school :( Another 64% consider bullying a normal part of school life. A) Yeah :(
B) Pshh Hell No! Let’s face it.
Everyone of us in this room have been bullied before, or have even witnessed bullying before.
So why does bullying happen? Bullying is all about power and the way
you maintain your relationships with others. What Is POWER Power is when a stronger individual has control over a weaker individual. When we say “stronger”, we don’t necessarily mean physical strength. Power can also come in the form of confidence, wealth, the ability to persuade others, responsibility and education.
Power can be used in both a good way and a bad way. Let’s use the relationship between a parent and a child. A parent can abuse a child physically for things like bad grades. The child will feel discouraged and so stressed out that they may start to fail other courses or just give up completely. The child may start to bully someone to feel powerful. Violence is any action by a person or a group that directly or indirectly causes physical and/or emotional harm to another person. Violence can include the following types of abuse: Financial Abuse Sexual Abuse Physical In a bullying situation, you are either the: Bully Victim Bystander If you are the bully:
You might have problems with relationships now and later in life.
Find it harder to respect and connect with others.
Have a greater chance of heading down the wrong path (ex. with the law) If you are the victim:
You might often feel sad and alone.
Not want to go to school.
Start to hurt others or even yourself. If you are the bystander:
You might feel helpless, guilty or even scared that you'll be the next target. http://www.stopabully.ca/bullying-resources/bullying-statistics Amanda Todd is just one example out of the 4,400 youth who die from suicide each year. The words of a bully can harm them no more. These tragic deaths also affect families and friends of the victim. Why Is Bullying So Serious? It is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. Even though bullying may start off as simple teasing, overtime it can become an extreme problem in the future. How Can YOU Help? If You See Someone Being Bullied Don't be afraid to tell someone you trust
Try to step-in. Tell the bully what he/she is doing isn't right. On average, the bullying will stop within 53 seconds if someone intervenes. If You Are Being Bullied
Tell someone you trust.
Talk to your school guidance counselor or school social worker.
Call Kids Help Phone. You can talk to child and youth expert. All callers are marked as anonymous.
Join some new clubs and make some new friends Be A Leader Invite kids who normally sit alone to come sit with you at lunch.
Make everyone feel welcome and included.
Partner up with people other than your friends once in a while. Who knows, you might even make some new friends! Healthy And Unhealthy Relationships A Good/Healthy Relationship will:
Sound like - laughter, positive comments
Look Like - having fun while doing things together and also independently.
Feel Like - being cared for and safe (in your comfort zone) A Bad/Unhealthy Relationship will:
Sound Like - Fighting and crying
Looks Like - fear, jealousy, depressed, and controlling
Feel Like - hopelessness, empty, confused and hurt Once you say something it's out there, even if you did not want to hurt someone you still did. The same goes with the internet and the things you post on other people's walls. Bullying happens so often that it seems so normal, and no one does anything about it. How would you feel if that was you? You never really know what a person goes through until you have walked a mile in their shoes. You never know what happens behind close doors, so do not make assumptions. Everyone is worth it, and no one deserves to be isolated and alone, because that is the worst feeling in the world. Whatever the case get to know someone before you judge them, because everyone has a story and sometimes they need some help to make a happy ending. Thanks For Watching :) Did You Know??? 1 in 5 Canadian Teens have witnessed
online bullying. http://www.stopabully.ca/bullying-resources/bullying-statistics “Courage is about doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared. ”Eddie Rickenbacker (1890-1973) “Life is a fight, but not everyone’s a fighter. Otherwise, bullies would be an endangered species.” “I wish every day could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.”
― R.J. Palacio Social Media The introduction of new social networks have increased the cyber bullying rates. There is no one policing these kinds of sites so people think that they can post anything they want. Bullies feel more power behind a computer screen, but the truth is that once you post something online it is there forever. How To Create A Non-Violent Future What is a non-violent future? It is a future where violence and hate do not exist. Where, when someone falls down, instead of laughing, we help them back up. Where words like bullying don't have meaning. YOU can help create this non-violent future. Instead of passing that lonely kid from science class everyday, stop and say "hi". Maybe even invite him to join you for lunch. And that's just the beginning! See someone being bullied in any way? INTERVENE! You might've just saved a lucky friend from a black eye. How easy was that? There are so many ways we can help create this nonviolent future. Just remember that YOU, no matter how big or small, have the power to change anything, and do anything you put your mind to. Non-violent future, here I come!
