  2. 2. I. Introduction: School is said to be the place where children learns and molds themselves into someone they wanted to be. But that is not the only luxury that schools can give, they can also be a battlefield, a place of survival some may seem, where the famous and beautiful are honored and respected while the poor little once are bullied. Bullying is a big problem now in our society and what’s alarming is the breeding ground of this plague is our school. Our very own second home is the ground for bullies. But before we trigger into the problem let us first define what a bully is. According to the New Webster’s Dictionary of the English Language, a bully is “someone who enjoys oppressing others weaker than himself”. There are different factors that may affect a person’s behavior it may be caused by its environment, history and other related matters. And one of the main factors of this change is caused by bullying, it may depress someone thus making his/her self-esteem degrades. Nowadays, we must not seem to notice events such as bullying but some incidents
  3. 3. must be as vivid as crystals, we can’t just identify if it is already an act of bullying or just another forms of it. We as students undergo same challenges in our daily lives and experienced bullying at the same time. Bullying must be stop. ‘But how?’ What makes a child a bully? How can we overcome bullying? These questions are the main reasons of our study. And the answers are soon to be found.
  4. 4. i. Background of the Study Bullying is all about behavior, how a person interacts and behaves. Let us first dig into the early ideas about behavior. “From earliest times, people have sought to explain behavior and to find remedies for behavior disorders. Archeological evidence shows that Stone Age people engage in a practice called ‘trephining’ To cure behavior disorders. Trephining involved chipping away a hole in the disturbed person’s skull to allow the evil spirits inside to escape. This might have actually cured some types of disorders by relieving pressure on the brain. Some trephined skulls show growth over the wound indicating that some people miraculously survived this treatment” (Rayland, R.G. Invitation to Psychology, 2002) Even thousands of years ago behavior is one of the most mysterious aspects of the human composition. It does affect everything and anyone around you. Bullying may not be considered a serious mental disorder rather it is a rude or unacceptable actions towards others that may cause physical or emotional pressure towards the victim. Bullies are people who have their reasons too;
  5. 5. they may have undergone the same problem and just trying to repeat it to avenge them. Or they may have other factors that turned them into a dark shade. This hypothesis of ours will soon be a fact as soon as we have proven it and finished our study.
  6. 6. ii. Statement of the Problem Bullying still appears to be a big hindrance to one’s emotional growth. Hence, it also affects the victim physically. These following questions aim to support this topic: 1. What is bullying? 2. What are the possible reasons of bullying? 3. What type of people is directly affected by bullying? 4. What are the effects of this to one’s individual growth? (emotional and physical growth) 5. How does it affect our community and society? 6. What are the possible ways to stop bullying in the community or society?
  7. 7. iii. Significance of the Study Students nowadays are emotionally imbalanced; they tend to be easily affected by the people around them. We are teenagers and we are still in a process of “metamorphosis”. We are affected by several matters, this matters serves to greatly affect our growth. The importance of this study is for us to understand the collected information on the main reason of why students most especially teens bully each other. We are also looking at the big picture of how great this bullying thing affects the attitude of the student and affect to their whole emotional growth. At the same time we are aiming to know how to stop or lessen this plague – in school and soon in the community.
  8. 8. iv. Scope and Limitation Bullying is still a big problem in our community – especially school. In fact, the rate of students being bullied in school is getting higher and higher every year. 6 out of 10 students are confirmed to be a bully. They just don’t notice it but their jokes and the way they speak is a kind of another way of bullying – verbal bullying. This study directly involves bullies and those who are bullied. This study aims to deepen our knowledge on why and how bullies act that way. This will help us understand them and in the same time, help them as well through giving care, love and attention. The researchers surveyed 25 students (high school) of University of Cebu Lapu-lapu and Mandaue to know how many students have been bullied and is presently being bullied.
  9. 9. v. Definition of Terms Bullying is said to have a long term effect on its victim. This study helps the victim to be knowledgeable about the bullies. To further more understand about the contents of this research paper, here are some key words to help you out: Ω Bullying – the process of intimidating or mistreating somebody weaker or in a more vulnerable situation Ω Bully – an aggressive person who intimidates or mistreats weaker people Ω Behavior - the way in which somebody behaves Ω Metamorphosis – A marked change in appearance, character, condition, or function. Ω Trephining – to remove a circular section from a bone, especially the skull, or from corneal tissue with a trephine Ω Verbal Bullying – using words or language, especially to opposed someone
  10. 10. II. Review of Related Literature Bullying and harassment are not new issues that students and schools face. In fact, over the years it has been viewed as being so common place in schools that it has been overlooked as a threat to students and reduced to a belief that bullying in a development stage that most youth will experience then get over (Ross, 2002, p.107) This harassment is not isolated to schools alone. But schools are the best place to actively intervene. Teachers, administrators, counselors, and even students have the greatest access to the most students through a school system. It is here that school staff can intervene, support and educate students about ending bullying behaviors directly and indirectly; breaking the bullying cycle. This paper will address bullying in general at all grade levels, but its intervention focus will be at the high school level. (Harris and Hathorn, 2002, p.50) According also to Harris and Hathorn, “Because adolescence is a difficult time in child’s maturation, bullying exacerbates these difficult times by forming barriers to positive connections with other
  11. 11. students and school faculty members. Consequently, the presence of bullying at school often creates a barrier for young people to develop into well-adjusted adults. High school is the last opportunity educators have to work with students at building character for some students this may be the last opportunity for an intervention to change behaviors, before they become adults in the workplace, with a family in the community at large.
  12. 12. III.
