An essay on bullying

STOP BULLYING



Bullying is one of the most common issues in our society that may exists in the workplace and especially in schools from all over the world. Bullying comes in many different forms, some more direct and include physical harm on the victim. Verbal bullying involves name calling and insults or threats being directed at the victim and may also involve emotional bullying where the victim’s emotions are targeted by the bully. Cyber bullying is when one uses technology to harm others by blackmailing victims or sending mean/embarrassing messages to or about another person.Other forms of bullying may be indirect where the harm is not caused by the person directly but it still ends up affecting the person.
     
      Usually kids who from dysfunctional families are those who become a bully since they don't really know what warmth or affection feels like. Parents display inappropriate behavior, such as aggressive acts or violence towards other members of the family and so children adopt such behavioral patterns and simulate it with their peers or classmates. Although bullies may appear to be confident in themselves, they usually feel insecure and inferior to others. They treat their peers badly to make themselves feel better or superior. It is believed that the bullies do not do this intentionally as they merely follow f their parents’ inappropriate behavior but when the arrogance is not suppressed or if the behavior is not controlled the bully will feel powerful and dominant and so he/she will continue bullying others. There effects of bullying are terrifying as it has the power to greatly impact child’s self-esteem even years after bullying has stopped. The victims of blackmail, intimidation, violence are inclined to suffer from psychological effects as low self-esteem,depression, anxiety, loneliness, and increased potential to lapse into illness.

     Bullying is never a joke. It has ruined so many lives,  some may think that it's just child's play but they have no idea how great its impact could be on the victims. Punches or kicks may leave marks on the victims body, but the vicious words will leave a permanent scar in one's life and that's why it is important to stop bullying. It is suggested that the victims of bullying should contact school personnel and ask to speak to the bully as soon as possible or for the school to implement strict anti-bullying policies to protect every student in the campus. So, let us all step forward to do and fight for what's right so we can achieve the change that we wish to see, let's all spread awareness and take action to end bullying together to make our schools a better place to learn in.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
TEACHERS AND AMINISTRATORS

Be knowledgeable and observant
Teachers and administrators need to be aware that although bullying generally happens in areas such as the bathroom, playground, crowded hallways, and school buses as well as via cell phones and computers (where supervision is limited or absent), it must be taken seriously. Teachers and administrators should emphasize that telling is not tattling. If a teacher observes bullying in a classroom, he/she needs to immediately intervene to stop it, record the incident and inform the appropriate school administrators so the incident can be investigated. Having a joint meeting with the bullied student and the student who is bullying is not recommended — it is embarrassing and very intimidating for the student that is being bullied.

Involve students and parents
Students and parents need to be a part of the solution and involved in safety teams and antibullying task forces. Students can inform adults about what is really going on and also teach adults about new technologies that kids are using to bully. Parents, teachers, and school administrators can help students engage in positive behavior and teach them skills so that they know how to intervene when bullying occurs. Older students can serve as mentors and inform younger students about safe practices on the Internet.

Set positive expectations about behavior for students and adults
Schools and classrooms must offer students a safe learning environment. Teachers and coaches need to explicitly remind students that bullying is not accepted in school and such behaviors will have consequences. Creating an anti-bullying document and having both the student and the parents/guardians sign and return it to the school office helps students understand the seriousness of bullying. Also, for students who have a hard time adjusting or finding friends, teachers and administrators can facilitate friendships or provide “jobs” for the student to do during lunch and recess so that children do not feel isolated or in danger of becoming targets for bullying.

STUDENTS

Report bullying and cyberbullying
It is important for students to report any bullying to a parent or an adult they trust. Often kids don’t report cyberbullying because they fear their parents will take away their phone or computer. Parents will support their child’s reports of bullying and not take away their phones as a consequence. It is important for kids to remember that bullying is wrong and should be handled by an adult.

Don’t bully back
It may be difficult to not bully back, but as the saying goes, two wrongs don’t make a right. Try not to show anger or tears. Either calmly tell the bully to stop bullying or simply walk away.

Avoid being alone
Whenever possible, avoid situations where there are no other students or teachers. Try to go to the bathroom with a friend or eat lunch in a group. When riding the bus, sit near the front. If you know a student who likes to bully others is in an area where you normally walk to lunch or class, try to use alternative hallway routes.
