All about Bullying!
Transcript of All about Bullying!
Bullying is persistent unwelcome behaviour, mostly using unwarranted or invalid criticism, nit-picking, fault-finding, also exclusion, isolation, being singled out and treated differently, being shouted at, humiliated, excessive monitoring, having verbal and written warnings imposed, and much more. In the workplace, bullying usually focuses on distorted or fabricated allegations of underperformance.
Humanize the bully. He is human just like you are, and he has things that bother him. Find out what bothers your bully and focus on that any time he tries to intimidate you. In realizing that he's dealing with his own problems, you may gain confidence you didn't know you had.
Outnumber the bully. Rarely does a bully only have one victim, so gather forces. There is power in numbers. Your group can stick together and stop the bully in his tracks.
Be kind to him. Most bullies get their joy in watching you suffer, so be kind to him instead to knock him off his footing. It may not work the first few times, but if you show him that he doesn't have control over your moods, he may eventually leave you alone.
Ignore the bully. Most bullies are simply trying to get attention, so turn your back on her. When she realizes you won't listen to her, she will eventually give up and go away. If you continue to ignore her, she will eventually lose interest in you and move on to someone else.
Tell someone in authority. The truth is that some bullies are just too mean for any of the previous tactics to work. Instead of allowing yourself to continue being victimized, you should immediately tell someone in charge what is happening. No one should be allowed to intimidate you in any way.
HOW TO STAND UP TO A BULLY?
WHY DO PEOPLE BULLY?
The emotionally immature person has low levels of self-esteem and self-confidence and consequently feels insecure; to counter these feelings of insecurity they will spend a large proportion of their lives creating situations in which they become the center of attention.
Attention-seeking behavior is surprisingly common. Being the center of attention alleviates feelings of insecurity but the relief is temporary as the underlying problem remains unaddressed: low self-confidence and low self-esteem, and consequent low levels of
self-worth and self-love.
Insecure and emotionally immature people often exhibit bullying behaviors, especially manipulation and deception. These are necessary in order to obtain attention which would not otherwise be forthcoming.
So.. Who to tell?
The choice is yours!
- A trusted adult
so.. think about it..
WHO DO I TRUST WITH MY SITUATION?
1. Physical bullying includes any physical contact that would hurt or injure a person like hitting, kicking, punching, etc. Taking something that belongs to someone else and destroying it would also be considered a type of physical bullying. For example, if someone was walking down the street and someone came up to them and shoved them to the ground, that would be physical bullying. In elementary and middle schools.
2. Verbal bullying is name-calling, making offensive remarks, or joking about a person's religion, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or the way they look. For example, if there was a group of kids who made fun of another kid because he couldn't run as fast as everyone else.
3. Indirect bullying includes spreading rumors or stories about someone, telling others about something that was told to you in private, and excluding others from groups. An example would be if you started a rumor that a boy in your class likes playing with dolls, and if the reason that you made up the story was because you thought it was funny.
4. Social alienation is when a bully excludes someone from a group on purpose. It also includes a bully spreading rumors, and also making fun of someone by pointing out their differences.
5. Intimidation is when a bully threatens someone else and frightens that person enough to make him or her do what the bully wants.
6. Cyberbullying is done by sending messages, pictures, or information using electronic media, computers, or cell phones.
