First you should pull your pants up & watch for ANY signs of bullying going on in your school. If you notice anything, if you see anyone being "picked on," report it to your principle, school counselor, teacher -- anyone in a position of authority -- immediately! If it happens outside of school, call the cops. Start an anti-bullying campaign in your school. Collect signatures from kids who are against bullying. Create an "anti-bullying promise" that outlines all bully-type behaviors & have as many kids as possible sign it. By signing, they'll be promising not to bully anyone, in any way; also, they'll be promising to report any form of bullying if/when they see it. If everybody, in every school, would do this sort of thing, and if all bullies were punished for their behavior... it might stop entirely after a while. It's worth a try... :)
I'm 60 and it's been going on as long as I can remember. As a kid I was painfully shy (I sure got over that) and was a perfect target for bullies. As a mom of 5 ( youngest is 18) I can't help but ask myself who the parents of these bullies are?
Hold the parents liable. Our children don't raise themselves!!! Anyone can be a father. It takes a real man to be a dad. My child knows that if he gets into trouble at school, then the penality is much much worse when he gets home. Make the punishment much much harsher!!!! 0 tollerance expell the bully!!!!!!!!! I'm not refering to the typical name calling that all children do. i think that helps to develope thick skin.
Tell, tell, tell and keep telling! We give the stranger danger, we should give them the bullying talk at the same time. . Over and over again. Parents need to go into action right away and these kids need to be made accountable. It is totally out of hand. Children need to be taught at a young age that they cannot bully or slow themselves to be bullied.
