  • Bullying is a huge problem worldwide. That is why parents, cannot stick our heads in the sand when it comes to bullying. We cannot live in denial in the hope that it will not happen to our child. We need to arm ourselves with strategies to educate our children from the youngest age and helping them to learn and grow and to feel confident about themselves, coming out of these situations is the key. Bad things will happen. It's a part of life and sometimes all you can do is be present for them. As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who still find it quite hard to manage issues like this, 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.

  1. 1. Bullying Matthew Wachala
  2. 2. Background <ul><li>Bullying is a form of abuse. It involves repeated acts over time attempting to create or enforce one person's (or group's) power over another person (or group) , thus an &quot;imbalance of power&quot;. The &quot;imbalance of power&quot; may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a target. </li></ul><ul><li>Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse – emotional, verbal and physical. It typically involves subtle methods of coercion such as psychological manipulation. Bullying can be defined in many different ways. Although the UK currently has no legal definition of bullying, some US states have laws against it. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Background Continued <ul><li>Bullying can occur in any context in which human beings interact with each other. This includes school, church, family, the workplace, home and neighborhoods. It is even a common push factor in migration. Bullying can exist between social groups, social classes and even between countries (see Jingoism). In fact on an international scale, perceived or real imbalances of power between nations, in both economic systems and in treaty systems, are often cited as some of the primary causes of both World War I and World War II. Put simply, historically and from this perspective, certain international 'bullying' between nations is seen as having resulted in at least two very major and costly international wars. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Statistical Information <ul><li>1 out of 4 kids is Bullied.  Surveys Show That  77%  of students are bullied mentally, verbally, & physically. </li></ul><ul><li>In a recent study, 77% of the students said they had been bullied.

  5. 5. Statistical Information Continued <ul><li>Playground statistics - Every 7 minutes a child is bullied. Adult intervention - 4%. Peer intervention - 11%. No intervention - 85%. </li></ul><ul><li>87% said shootings are motivated by a desire to &quot;get back at those who have hurt them.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>28% of youths who carry weapons have witnessed violence at home. </li></ul><ul><li>Bullying is increasingly viewed as an important contributor to youth violence, including homicide and suicide. Case studies of the shooting at Colombine High School and other U.S. schools have suggested that bullying was a factor in many of the incidents. </li></ul>

  7. 7. Statistical Information Continued <ul><li>Among students, homicide perpetrators were more than twice as likely as homicide victims to have been bullied by peers. (School-Associated Violent Deaths in the United States 1994-1999, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Departments of Education and Justice, 2001; findings published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, 2001) </li></ul><ul><li>The study authors also reported that bullies were more likely to be involved in other problem behaviors, such as smoking and drinking alcohol, and to do more poorly academically. However, youth who were both bullies and recipients of bullying tended to fare the most poorly of all, experiencing social isolation, as well as doing poorly in school and engaging in problem behaviors, like smoking and drinking. </li></ul>
