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.
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.
Also, respect is needed to start to lessen bullying in schools today. Students have difficulties telling the difference between bullying and drama; there is a very fine line between the two. Bullying is continuously putting someone down for no reason (Walker 8). This happens quite often in schools today; many students act disrespectful which causes the illusion that their behavior is okay. Bullying is intending to harass someone and hurt their feelings; however, the majority of the time the situations fall under the drama category.
The FBI National Center for Analysis of Violent Crime observed that the victimization of students occurs more often in public schools (Will 2). The victims of bullying suffer from emotional distress, and they often have difficulties making friends (J Love 346). The distressed victims will have problems in the workforce and their future family if bullying stays strong in schools. School bullies may demonstrate their ‘power’ in several ways. School bullies may mock peers, spread vicious rumors, play cruel pranks, or use physical force to ensure to their target that they are in charge (J Love 346).
Although some of these factors cannot be controlled, many can be prevented through anti-bullying programs and the actions of counselors, students, parents, and teachers. Bullying is a growing problem today in which students and adults facilitate the behavior. This world-wide predicament causes many negative long-term effects for both the bully and victim. Bullying has three main components to it. First, the bully has to intimidate or physically hurt a victim.
I just want the bullies to know how much pain they put people through, and then maybe they will realize that is not a good thing. Unfortunately everyone has been bullied, including me. Schools need to realize that bullying happens in every school. I know that some schools care more than others, and they have anti-bullying clubs to help stop bullying. But other schools could care less about bullying.
It takes the form of tormenting, abusing verbally or intentionally trying to threaten younger or perceived to be weaker child. Bullying behavior occurs all over the world and almost in all segments of society. Normally starting during early education years, it often intensifies as those same kids become teenagers. Bullies are aggressive in nature and look at those that are shy and weak as easy targets. The victims of bullying are often unable to defend or fight back for themselves so it is imperative that bullying is stopped in its early stages.
Children do not deserve to be left with the visible and invisible scars that bullying leaves behind, or the severe consequence of suicide or suicidal thoughts. It has been proven that there are ways to decrease bullying; it just takes more than one person to do so. People, mostly children, are bullied and picked on for the smallest things in our society. Instead of trying to stop it; we focus more on simply asking the victim if they are okay and punishing the bully. But we have learned that it is not enough.
If you yourself have been bullied then you will understand how the child feels. This may sound odd, but have you, a teacher ever been bullied by a pupil? So many teachers are being abused but they don't report it or ignore it- I am here to persuade you to deal with this. It isn't your fault- it's only ever the bully's fault. It is important that you understand why the bullying is in process.
Bullying is undesirable, antagonistic manner among school going children that involves a real alleged power discrepancy. The power imbalance comes about because the bullies uses their physical strength, their power, embarrassing information, obnoxious language, or their reputation to control or maltreat other kids. The bullies are prone to recap the behavior over time. The act for bullying is agonizing because those bullied are long affected by the act and may live in fear in their life. Issues have arisen whether the bully should receive a special form of punishment at a particular age because just like the other offenses bullying should be punishable.
