BULLYING IN SCHOOL/WHAT IS BULLYING?

BULLYING IN SCHOOL/WHAT IS BULLYING?

Family Life 0 comments by

AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, A FEW WEEKS AGO AN ACCIDENT HAPPENED IN CINCINNATI PUBLIC SCHOOL WHERE A 8 YEAR OLD LITTLE BOY WAS NOT ONLY BULLIED BUT BEATING TO A POINT WHERE HE WAS UNCONSCIOUS. I WON’T REALLY GET TO DEEP INTO THE STORY BUT I WANT TO FOCUS MORE ON THE BULLYING PART BECAUSE IT HAS BECOME MORE AND MORE COMMON IN THE SCHOOL LATELY. SCHOOL BULLYING IS A PROBLEM WORLDWIDE.

WHAT IS BULLYING/BULLIES? BULLIES ARE PEOPLE MAKE THEIR VICTIMS FEEL BAD BY HURTING THEM PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY. UNFORTUNATELY MANY BULLIES INCIDENTS OCCURS EITHER IN THE SCHOOLYARD, THE BATHROOM OR THE CLASSROOM WHEN THE TEACHER IS NOT PRESENT. BECAUSE OF SCHOOL BULLYING, SOME KIDS HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO CHANGE SCHOOL OR QUIT GOING TO SCHOOL. THE SAD PART ABOUT BULLYING INCIDENTS IS THE FACT THAT MANY TEACHERS JUST IGNORE IT WHICH WAS THE CASE FOR LITTLE GABE.

WERE YOU BULLIED IN SCHOOL? I CAN SPEAK FROM EXPERIENCE. WHEN I WAS IN HAITI DURING MY FIRST YEAR IN THE SECONDARY CLASSES, I WAS BULLIED. I HAD A GIRL WHO WAS BIGGER THAN ME WHO DECIDED TO BE A BULLY. SHE WAITED UNTIL THE CLASS WAS OVER AND THE TEACHER WAS GONE TO MESS WITH ME. SHE HIT ME A FEW TIMES; I DID NOT JUST STAND THERE. I HIT BACK. I WAS ALWAYS THE QUIET, NICE, ALWAYS SMILING KID AT SCHOOL; I ALSO WAS NOT ONE TO MESS WITH.

A FEW SIGNS THAT YOUR CHILD IS BEING BULLIED PARENTS SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO:

  • IF YOUR CHILD COMES HOME WITH INJURIES THAT HE/SHE CANNOT EXPLAIN
  • IF YOUR CHILD IS CONSTANTLY SAYING ” I HATE MY LIFE” EVER SINCE THE SCHOOL YEAR STARTED
  • IF YOUR CHILD COMES HOME WITH THEIR CLOTHES DESTROYED OR ALL MESSED UP
  • IF YOUR CHILD COMES HOME WITH A PAIN EVERYDAY AFTER SCHOOL

LASTLY BUT MORE IMPORTANT, IF  YOU ARE A PARENT YOUR CHILD IS TELLING YOU THAT HE/SHE IS BEING BULLIED AT SCHOOL, DON’T TAKE IT LIGHTLY. GO TO THE SCHOOL, ASK TO SPEAK TO BOTH THE TEACHER AND THE PRINCIPAL TO FIND OUT WHAT’S GOING OUT. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE. SPEAK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT BULLIES AT SCHOOL, EDUCATE THEM.
