Ten Steps to Help Stop The Bullying Epidemic

810 views

Published on

“Bullying has become an epidemic in our schools. However it is defined, bullying is not just child’s play, but a terrifying experience many American school children face every day. It can be as direct as teasing, hitting, or threatening, or indirect as exclusion, rumors, or manipulation. During the past decade, bullying has become more lethal and has occurred more frequently than it had in the previous two decades. Bullying can no longer be explained away, as some adults are inclined to do, as a normal part of growing up. Bullying has only harmful, not beneficial, effects for the target and the perpetrator- even the bystander. Many children in our nation’s schools are robbed of the opportunity to learn because they are bullied and victimized daily. Bullying exacts a terrible toll on children, and the scars can last a lifetime” (nea.org).

Notes
  • Bullying should be taken very seriously. Parents should respond to the child with empathy, love and support. Only this can build confidence in the child that he or she has made the right decision by sharing the issue with the parents. Parents should build assurance to the child that they can work this problem as a team without worsening the issue or resulting in negative consequences and teach them to be kind and respect others. I am a parent and I'm worried and I don't want that any kid will experience this again. As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who find it quite hard to manage time, I found this great application which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.

Ten Steps to Help Stop The Bullying Epidemic

  1. 1. TEN STEPS TO HELP STOP THE BULLYING EPIDEMIC NOW!
  2. 2. STEP ONE <ul><li>Get trained on how to deal with this epidemic. Most states require anti bullying programs now as part of teacher and administrative certification with ongoing professional development training. </li></ul>
  3. 3. STEP TWO <ul><li>Don’t deny that bullying exists. It is real. Don’t turn your back on even the slightest unkind comments that are made from one student to another. </li></ul>
  4. 4. STEP THREE <ul><li>Identify students in your class or school who may be at risk for being a bully or a victim. Make it a point to keep a sharp eye on the bully in any unsupervised areas of the school. The bully is very covert and will do things when no one in authority is watching. </li></ul>
  5. 5. STEP FOUR <ul><li>The bully is anti social. Once he has been identified remove him from any social activities in your classroom or school to make him/her develop consequential thinking </li></ul>
  6. 6. STEP FIVE <ul><li>Never deal with the bully or the parents of the bully alone. Once the bully has been identified documentation is critical by more than one teacher. </li></ul>
  7. 7. STEP SIX <ul><li>Make respect and responsibility the two character qualities that you work on in your classroom or school. </li></ul>
  8. 8. STEP SEVEN <ul><li>Don’t be intimidated by the parents of the bully. They will defend the bully to the hilt. Why? Because they are bullied at home by this kid or maybe even their spouse. </li></ul>
  9. 9. STEP EIGHT <ul><li>Do bullies have high self esteem? Yes, when they have a victim in their sites that they can bully. Without a victim, the bully has low self esteem </li></ul>
  10. 10. STEP NINE <ul><li>Assign mentors to at risk students, bullies and victims. Each mentor should have a manageable group of students both bullies and victims that they work with individually and ultimately in a group to encourage respectful and responsible behavior. </li></ul>
  11. 11. STEP TEN <ul><li>Involve everyone, and I mean everyone. Top down. The school board, superintendent, administration, teachers, para-professionals, custodians, and I want the police involved as well. Biased intimidation is now going to be recognized as a crime. This behavior could be cause for expulsion </li></ul>
