  • All schools are likely to have some problem with bullying at one time or another. It is important that your child’s school takes steps to reduce and prevent bullying. Parents and families have an important part to play in helping schools deal with bullying. Parents can protect and support their children through such a difficult situation by recognizing the signs of bullying as possible. I would like to share this link, about a service on how to protect your children. Here is the link:

  • 1. Bullying in School
    By Ariel Lang
    EDU 290
    8:00 – 9:15
  • 2. What is bullying?
    Bullying is the mental and physical abuse of a student by their peers
    Bullying can consist of:
    Name calling
    Physical abuse
    Exclusion from groups
  • 3. Types of Bullying
    Verbal: this is the most common kind of bullying and it consists mainly of name calling, rude comments, and the bully often makes the victim the target of malicious jokes
    Physical: this consists of pushing, pulling, hitting, poking, pinching, kicking and other physical attacks from the bully on the victim
    Indirect: this kind of bullying is most common among girls and consists of spreading false rumors and talking behind the victims back
  • 4. Types of Bullying Cont..
    Social alienation: where a group of peers or even multiple groups exclude the victim from their group
    Cyber bullying: the bully uses the internet to ruin the victims reputation on social networking sites, blogs, chat rooms, and e-mail
  • 5. Who are the victims?
    Anyone can be a victim, and anyone can be a bully
    Victims are usually quieter students who do not know how to stand up for themselves.
    They are normally branded as “weird”, “nerds”, or even “freaks”
    Nearly 160,000 students miss school every day because they are afraid of being bullied
  • 6. Consequences of Bullying
    There has been a link between school shootings and bullying
    Many victims have been pushed to the point of violence due to bullying
    100,000 students carry a gun to school because they want to “scare” their attacker
    this has lead to school shootings
  • 7. Statistics
    1 out of 4 students are bullied
    1 out of 5 students admit to being a bully
    More bullying happens on school grounds than on the way to or from school
    Every seven minutes a student is bullied
    Out of that seven minutes only 7% of adults intervene
    Out of that seven minutes only 11% of peers intervene
    Out of that seven minutes 85% of bullying goes without any intervention
  • 8. What is being done?
    Many schools are turning a blind eye on bullying
    They don’t want to or don’t know how to deal with bullies
    Many schools say that the victims just need to “suck it up” and let it go
    They try to use the old “sticks and stones” approach to bullying
    Many bullies get off with a slap on their wrist or nothing is done.
  • 9. What can you do?
    The most important thing you can so is intervene if you see someone being picked on
    Stand up for the victim without getting in a physical altercation
    If you can’t intervene, report the abuse
    Keep checking in to see if anything has been done
    Don’t turn a blind eye
    Place yourself in their shoes, what if it were you?
  • 10. Just remember…
    You do have the power to stop bullying. All you have to do is step up, speak out, and report all that you see.
    What you do can make a difference
