I think that bullying is wrong because it affects everyone in some way. Bullying is purposely hurting someone in someway. It has to be intentional and occur more than once. 2 out of 3 times bullying happens in school. Most of the time kids are bullied for their appearance, if they don’t look a certain way they get made fun of for it.
Bullying is when a person is picked on over and over again by an individual or group with more power, either in terms of physical strength or social standing. Everyday more and more kids are taking their lives because they don’t speak up and stand up for themselves. It is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. Most teens and even younger kids don’t realize how much they are hurting the person they bully. Most kids that are bei... ... middle of paper ... ...ed to bullying at all.
Hitting your child, is teaching them that it is okay to become violent when you’re mad, which is not a good lesson to learn. Also, it could result in your child, bringing these lessons to their own children, and maybe even reflect it on their spouse. Why is it seen as correct, to hit a child for hitting someone else? The irony is that you’re doing wrong, just as they are. You need to teach children, that violence is not the correct way to go about things, so they spread that to everyone around them.
Bullying happens on the playground, during class, and to and from school (Wright). Bullying has become a big issue and some states are making laws to stop bullying (Garby). It damages the people being bullied, effects the bully himself, and sometimes the people that did not take part in the bullying. Bullying hurts the person being bullied in tremendous ways ("Bullying"). Children that are bullied sometimes feel hated, unimportant, and terrified ("Bullying").
Many children suffer every day due to parents who practice, or abuse corporal punishment. Out of the one hundred reasons why inflicting physical punishment on a child is a very negative form of discipline, I will explain the top 3 reasons why I believe corporal punishment is unacceptable. When we spank our kids we are setting them up for emotional and psychological instability. Children that are spanked are most likely to suffer from mental disorders like chronic depression, anxiety disorders, anti-social disorder, self-hate, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These conditions can cause affect a person on a subconscious level causing them to live a distressed life.
Schools and communities too often stand idly by while people struggle, sometimes outright mocking the victim, or, in some cases, being told to suck it up. How can we as a society allow these children to abuse one another? Is that what we want people to grow up to think is somehow how the real world works? The real world does not work like school, and the bully and bullied alike are going to run into severe trouble down the line for what they experienced since no one ever taught them any better. Teachers, parents, and the community need to learn the signs of bullying and the ways to effectively handle bullying the moment it is spotted, or only more and more children are going to come out scarred and unprepared for reality, if they are lucky enough to make it out alive.
A bully often chooses to physically or verbally harass the victim in front of other students so they draw as much attention as possible. The result of publicly humiliating the victim is an inflated ego for the bully. In my opinion, physical bullying is the most difficult for the individual being bullied because he or she sees themselves as helpless and a “ loser.” The victim fears being laughed at and harassed by others who choose to join in with the bully. As with cyber bullying, the individual targeted by a bully represses his or her emotions. The victim is afraid to tell anyone how he or she feels because of the fear of further physical or verbal bullying.
When you are in a position of power you are always tempted to abuse it. If a bully is getting tossed around by someone they love and treated badly they will always want to inflict the same pain they are going through on someone else. While the average episode lasted 40 seconds, on one notable occasion a group of kids hit and kicked a boy for 35 min... ... middle of paper ... ... Mims 3 could be in or near bathrooms, hallways, and parking lots where bullying often occurs. Only 32 out of the 50 states have procedures for investigating bullying affairs. Only 17 out of the 50 states have school staff report bullying to a supervisor, as much as they report suspected abuse and neglect.
They may be really frustrated with their family so they take it out on others. Bullies may think it is cool, so they do it for the laughs. Their parents may even beat them or mistreat them. Most of the time I believe bullies are just insecure of themselves, so they feel better when they hurt others. When the bullies see that the kids are scared of them they feel more in control and alive.
Like adults who have repeated the cycle of child abuse, a child may also do the same with bullying. It is always a possibility that the victims of bullying may become the bullies themselves. Bullies often have challenges in their life that influence their behavior, causing them to torment someone innocent. Actually, a kid who bullies because they were bullied is a very common motive for bullying. A survey of 1,229 boys and girls asks, “Are you being bullied?”, “If so, how often?”, “Do you ever bully someone else?”, and “If so how often?”.
