How To Help Stop Bullying? http://4useful.com/readthis/MethodsToStopBullying.php
TIPSMyth #1: Bullying is just a normal part of the growing up experience!Are you kidding me! How can living in constant fear of psychological abuse andphysical attacks be a normal part of growing up? Bullying is not "normal" oracceptable social behavior and should never be ignored or tolerated under anycircumstances!Myth #2: Asking for help or simply telling someone will make the problemeven worse!As difficult as asking for help may seem to do at the time, research has shown thatbullying will only stop when caring adults (parents, relatives, friends) or adults inauthority (teachers, principals, police) and peers (classmates) get involved.Myth #3: Dont be a coward. You need to stand up to the bully and hit themback!Hmmm, I have to wonder how many of us, especially with bullied boys, are guilty ofthis one! Given the fact that in most situations the bully is bigger and stronger, orhas a gang with him/her, there is a big risk that fighting back will make things evenworse and may lead to the serious injury of the bullied person. Research has shownthat learning to live with bullying does NOT make children tougher. Instead it maycause low self-esteem and a lack of self-worth in the bullied child.
TIPSMyth #4: Bullying only happens at school, so let the educationsystem deal with it!News flash! Bullying does not occur only in the school setting. This kind ofharassment is found almost everywhere people, both children and adults,gather to learn, play, or work.Myth #5: Some people are just born to bully others! Just the way itis!A rather silly argument when you stop to think about it. How can thatsweet new born baby lying in its crib be labelled as a future bully? Bullyingis a behavior that is learned through life experience and observations.Therefore this behavior can be changed or unlearned.Myth #6: Some people deserve to be bullied!It amazes me that in this day and age there are people, both kids andadults, that really believe this! Granted we all have met people who for avariety of reasons may "rub us the wrong way", still they do not deserveto be verbally or physically harmed in any manner.
TIPSMyth #7: Words will never hurt you!Ever heard of emotional scars? Yes, words alone dont lead to bruises orbroken bones that heal in time. Emotional scars may last a lifetime, thereby affectingthe targeted person for years and years after the bullying incidences. This makesverbal bullying more dangerous to some victims than physical abuse.Myth #8: It was only teasing!This simple statement may be one of the most used methods by bullies tojustify their actions. Teasing with the intent to do harm or hurt the other party isconsidered bullying! This is a far different type of teasing than "good natured"teasing between friends and peers, when all is being done in fun, and both partiesrealize this.Myth #9: Bullying is just a form of Conflict!Wrong! Bullying is about the misuse of power that one person has over another andis generally repeated over time. Conflict is a disagreement or even a fight betweenindividual or groups that is not based on an imbalance of power between the partiesinvolved. Solving conflicts may involve each party meeting halfway and acceptingsome of the blame for the incident and working things out to solve the problem. Inbullying, there is no "shared blame", between the bully and the target. Bullying iswrong, and no one deserves this treatment!
