  • We've been discussing about these bullying issues with my co-parents in school. And I believe it will be a great idea to teach our children a safety tip on how to deal with bullying. And as been noticed, bullied case has been increasing rapidly, so we've come of an idea to search for a mobile safety that will ensure our kids to be safe even when we're not around. Then we found this link: http://safekidzone.com/

  3. 3. <ul><li>Involves an Imbalance of Power: people who bully are trying to control or harm their victims and their victims may have a hard time defending themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>Intent to cause harm: the bully wants to hurt their victim, it is not an accident </li></ul><ul><li>Repetition: the bullying happens to the same person over and over by the same person or group </li></ul>

  6. 6. <ul><li>People who bully have power over those they bully </li></ul><ul><li>All children will outgrow bullying </li></ul><ul><li>People who bully are insecure and have low self-esteem </li></ul><ul><li>Bullying often resolves itself when you ignore it </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>People who bully others usually pick on those who have less peer status, they know how to harm others, or physical power (size, strength). Getting a big reaction out of someone can make bullies feel like they have the power they want. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>For, some bullying continues as they become older. Unless someone intervenes, the bullying will likely continue and, in some cases, grow into violence and other serious problems. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Many people who bully are popular and have average or better-than-average self esteem. Some people who bully may also have poor social skills, for them, bullying can be a way to gain social status. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Ignoring the bullying teaches students who bully that they can bully others without consequences. Adults and other students need to stand up for children who are bullied, to ensure they are protected and safe. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Stand tall and be brave . It ‘s easier to feel brave when you feel good about yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>Get a buddy (and be a buddy). Make a plan to walk with a friend or two on the way to school or recess or lunch or wherever you think you might meet the bully. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t show your feelings . Try distracting yourself (counting backwards from 100, spelling the word “turtle” backwards, etc.) to keep your mind occupied until you are out of the situation and somewhere safe where you can show your feelings. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Tell an adult. Find someone you trust and go and tell them what is happening to you. </li></ul><ul><li>Walk away. Act like you do not care, even if you really do. Bullies want a big reaction to their teasing and meanness. Acting as if you don’t notice and don’t care is like giving no reaction at all, and this just might stop a bully’s behavior. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t become a bully. Treating someone in the manner that you have been treated in an effort to gain social status is not okay. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>You are not alone. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not your fault. Nobody should be bullied! </li></ul><ul><li>Talk to someone you trust. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not hurt yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not bully back. Do not bully anyone else. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not let the bully win. Keep doing what you love to do. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>This topic hits close to home for me. I know children who have been the victims of being bullied. In some of the research I found that the solutions they give to do not seem to always solve the problem. There are children who do not have adults that they can trust to tell. Advising a child to not show emotion when they are being bullied would be difficult for them to do. I feel for children who do not have a support system backing them when they go through these times. In my research I liked seeing groups out there who take a stand against bullying, I think children can relate more when they see people stand for them. I also thought it interesting that bully may not be insecure, they can be popular. This is different from what you see in cartoons the bully is the overweight, socially awkward child. I am glad that there is an abundance of information available for kids, teachers, or anyone that can be affected. </li></ul>
