Bullying

Bullying takes place everywhere and happens to everyone. There are many things that can be done to stop it. Tolerance, the capacity to endure continued subjection to something, happens in bullying because the victim in the bullying situation has too much tolerance and takes all the bullying. The victim doesn’t always know that bullying is happening when it occurs. People need to not tolerate the bullying at all because it needs to stop. Bullying causes many school-aged kid’s from going to school about three of four days of a school week, meaning that they are too scared that they are going to get bullied to go to school.

To have bullying stop whoever is being bullied could tell a trusted adult, that adult will mostly take the proper actions, meaning if there isn’t anything that they can do about it, then they’ll find someone who can.

Bullying can stop if the victim stands up to the bully and lets the bully know that their not afraid of them. Standing up for oneself is a good way to show that their not scared of that person and that they aren’t going to let the bullying that is going on continue anymore; the victim doesn’t tolerate the bullying any longer.

Bullying can be stopped the bully is confronted and asked why their doing that; there’s probably a reason for the bullying. Maybe they’re bullied at home by an older sibling or a parent.
Ways that people get bullied are physical bullying which is when hitting, slapping, kicking etc. occurs; mental or emotion bullying, which is name calling, being put down such as “You’re worthless”

If a child was bullied when they were younger sometimes they grow up to be bullies because they think it’s all right because that’s what happened to them in their early childhood. The victims of bullying become hurt, anxious, saddened, depressed and have trouble sleeping. Disorders can occur from being bullied such as anxiety disorders, panic disorders and other psychologic distress. Most bullies don’t out grow the “bullying phase.” It continues while they grow up. Bullies want to feel like they have power. While bullies grow up, some things that have a good chance of happening are sexual and racial harassment, child abuse, domestic violence, etc. Bullying isn’t showing respect to anyone. Disrespect is being taken over and shown more and more every day.

Bullying take place everywhere and happens to everyone. It’s not something that has to happen, it can be controlled. There are many things that can be done to stop it such as telling someone, stand up for yourself or your friend’s. Tolerance is the capacity to endure continued subjection to something; this happens in bullying because the victim in the bullying situation has too much tolerance and takes all the bullying. Those people need to not tolerate all the bullying because it needs to stop.

-Bullying

Bullying — Using superior strength or influences to intimidate someone. Bullying is, unfortunately, a huge part of everyday life. Many people in the world are bullied, and most of the time, for stupid reasons including race, intelligence, friends, and many other things. –

I believe bullying is wrong. People bully for many reasons, but no good reasons. Some people who were bullied, start to bully. Maybe to make themselves feel better or to fit into a crowd. Or it could be for payback.

Bullying really tears kids down. Many kids don’t know how to deal with bullying. Ones who get bullied usually take it without a fight. And people who see it happening don’t do much to help, most of the time. It’s sad to see this go on.

In many areas, schools are doing a much better job cutting down bullying and stopping it at the source. The school has many programs and sources where bullying can be stopped.

In conclusion, bullying is being somewhat controlled, but there are many ways people could do more to help.

Bullying

How does it feel to leave close friends behind, go into a new school and trying to fit in with everyone else. It takes a lot of courage to be a new kid and rarely are most kids accepted quickly. Bullying is becoming more popular everywhere, but what people don’t realize is that there’s a lot that can be done to prevent bullying.

There’s four types of bullying that I’m most familiar with: cyber, individual, group, and self bullying. Most people who bully others have had a past where they were bullied. They do what they had done to them to others for payback, enjoyment, and to show others how it feels to be bullied and they think it’s okay to make others go through what they had to go through, which, in my opinion, isn’t right. People also bully others out of jealousy. Some people could have a poor family history which makes it hard when they don’t know what’s right and wrong, and had bad disbiplining at home.

Do I think that bullying can be stopped completely? No. Why do so many people like myself want bullying to end? Because bullying scars the victims permanently for life. Also what would it be like to have the name of being that biggest bully at school? Who wants to be remembered like that? I wouldn’t. A bully has to live with all of those regrets
Tozier 2

for the rest of their life as well. There’s not a certain age or gender for bullying, it happens to everyone.

Bullying has become worse and worse over time. People could do little things like keep negative comments to themselves, stop hating on each other, and stop judging others. Don’t be a low person and put others down. It’s not cool. If someone is getting bullied, don’t ignore it, say something and have it stopped. Bullying can be prevented easily.

Bullying

Bullying. Most people see it as being a wrong and cruel thing to do. For the people that

don’t think this, they are usually the people who bully or have bullied in the past. If people
-J

decide to bully, try putting yourself in that person’s shoes, and feel how they feel. This may

change a person’s mind on bullying, for the other people, it doesn’t.

I think bullying is wrong because everyone should be treated the same or how the bully would like to be treated. There can be many different reasons why people would decide to bully. Some of these reasons could be emotional reasons. They may have trouble at home or with their friends. Even though this may be the reason why people bully, they shouldn’t so they can feel better. –

Other people who bully may not have friends or family problems. Some people like to bully to feel better about themselves or because when they were younger they were bullied. This is a problem that makes people hurt others.

When a person bullies there could be a possibility that there is no reason what so ever on why they bully. When this happens the person may have no idea how the other person feels when they get hurt.
Dube2

Most people don’t like to be bullied. To stop this from happening they may hurt others so they won’t end up hurting them first. If a person. bullies just so they don’t get bullied then they may not stop and think how they are effecting other people.

When a person gets bullied it may put them into depression. This can be serious if the bullying keeps happening. Some people just try to ignore it, for others they can’t because it can happen anywhere.

There are many different types of bullying. In our present time the most common type of bullying people usually hear about is cyber bullying. This is where someone bullies another person by emailing them, post something about them on a website, or even send a text message to them. I think when a person does this its because they may find it easier to just let them read it instead of telling them face to face.

Even though bullying is cruel, people still end up doing it. Theres many different reasons for bullying or even none at all. There are many different types of bullying. When a person bullies, I think they should put themselves in the other persons shoes and try to imagine how they are making that person feel. –

Bullying plays a huge part in today’s society. Many teenagers, young

children, and even adults, wake up,scared to step out of their homes because of the ignorance they get bothered by daily. Bullying is not often seen out in public, unless you actually look out for it. Bullying is not often scene in public because it

can be represented in so many different possible ways,so most people don’t know what to watch out for.The most known way in today generation is atype of bullying called cyber bullying.

Cyber bullying is a type of bullying that often shows up on Facebook and

other social networks. Cyber bullying is usually used instead of the usual type of bullying you see daily in public, because, the “bully” doesn’t have the courage to

talk to the person, face —to— face, or they can’t h,andle the situation by themselves
sotheyhaveto include manyothers in itortheywanteveryoneelsetowatch itgo down.

The main reasons for a person to become a victim of bullying are the person

may not fit in with anyone else, so the others picture them as an outcast, and a easy target. It may be caused because ofthevictim’s looks, or how they act,their race, or religion, their likes of different things.

When someone is avictim of bullying, one never knows how they are actually being affected, each and every bully attacks their target in a different way, examples of some situations; abusive verbally! physically/sexually.

Teachers, and other authorized adults should take control of this unfortunate use of actions because, so many children/teens/adults, commit suicide, or attempt tod. Bullies make the victims so emotionally unstable, and when the victims become emotionally unstable they take out there built up emotions on others, it’s a never ending chain reaction that, needs to come to end.

Teachers, and others could affect the stopping of bullying by, spreading the word of bullying by creating posters, and forming anti_bullying groups. They could block internet chat groups, they could follow there students or children
through social networking. There are many possible ways and ideas to stop

bullying, but it seems that many adults and or teachers haven’t figured out how to use the ideas.

Bullying

Imagine walking down the halls known as the new kid. Everyone stares. Certain kids laugh. “Do they like me?” “Are my clothes good enough?” All of this goes through a new student’s head at the time of a transfer. Imagine a youngster sitting at the lunch table alone because no one will sit with him or her because they don’t know him or her yet? Bullying is becoming a problem, and there is a lot that can be done.

There are many types of bullying such as: cyber, group, individual, and self bullying. People bully because of j ealousy, sometimes bullies think that the right thing to do is talçe it out physically, and some like to target the mental/emotional aspect of a person. Cyber bullying is -“disembodied conversation,” and usually, someone who is a bully has either been bullied in their past or they didn’t have the exact love and support that other kids received.

Personally, I believe that bullying should stop completely. Will this happen? I wish. The most that will ever happen with bullying is it being prevented as much as possible. I think the general consensus of people would like bulling to terminate because it truly hurts children, teenagers, and adults, but people will still become bullies.

My school recently participated in a program called Rachel’s Challenge. What this does is gets us students together to become one big family and prevent the bullying, hating, and
Wallace 2

disrespectful remarks to one another.

Bullying has become a major problem over the years, and it needs to stop. There are many things that us people can do to fully prevent it. Everyone can prevent it by stopping the rude remarks to other people, if there is something suspicious going on, report it, not be haters, and if there is anything that can be done about future problems, prevent them before they happen. Bullying is unnecessarily hurtful, and it can easily be stopped.

Is bullying a normal part of life? Sadly, it is, but in my opinion I think that we

should try to end bullying. Bullying causes physical and mental problems to kids. Bullying is easy to stop, but sometimes people just don’t want to step up. Nobody knows the specific reason -for kids bullying, but many people have suggested that more than likely people who bully are aggressive kids that could have been bullied in the past, have anger problems, or have problems at home. Kids use social networking to bully other kids, this is called cyber bullying. The reason they do this is because they feel more comfortable behind a screen then confronting the person face-to-face.

Is bullying a normal part of life? Bullying is a normal thing that happens to just about every child in the world. One way of bullying could be physically: Hitting/punching, kicking or tripping. Another way of bullying is mentally: Calling them names, teasing them, threatening them, making racist remarks about them, or not letting them join in activities making them feel lonely and left out. Bullying -is very common, it starts for most children around the age of 3 or 4.
Hal lett 2

Bullying causes physical and mental problems to kids. Bullying can be physical or mental, by beating them or calling them names. The most common thing a bully does is search for someone that won’t fight back. Bullies also search for children with disabilities or a handicap. Bullying can cause kids too do dramatic things such as cut themselves, have thoughts of suicide, or even commit suicide. Bullying also affects children mentally, they begin to thing down of themselves, feeling lonely and depressed. Children also lack confidence become depressed which can lead to the physical affect a child can do to themselves.

Bullying is easy to stop, but sometimes people just don’t want to step up. Most kids don’t want to tattle because they feel like people won’t like them anymore. Children also choose cliques and try to follow the ‘popular” crowd, which tends to be filled with bullies. Children also don’t want to tell adults because they find it funny at times to watch someone being picked on and not even think about how it’s affecting the child. I think people need to learn to say no to bullies and start ending problems, not causing new ones for children.

Nobody knows the specific reason for kids bullying. But some commonly found reasons are that the child is just naturally aggressive, could have been bullied in the past, have anger problems, or have problems at home.

Is bullying a normal part of life? Bullying causes physical and mental problems to kids. Bullying is easy to stop, but sometimes people just don’t want to step up. Nobody knows the specific reason for kids bullying. Kids use social networking to bully other kids.

Put An End To Bullying

I think that bullying needs to stop. Imagine a Freshman boy getting his books out of his locker at the end of the day and having two other boys approach him. They pick him up, slam him up against his locker, and break his nose. Now imagine if you were in this situation. You wouldn’t like it at all.

Statistics show that about fifty-six percent of students who are bullied are bullied at school, and about fifteen percent of students absent from school don’t show up because they are afraid of being bullied. According to 2010 statistics, there were two-hundred and eighty-two thousand students bullied per month throughout the month. Around half of teens have been cyber bullied at least once in their life.

Another honific thing that bullying can cause is suicide. Around fourteen percent on teens have considered suicide and around seven percent of teens have attempted it because of bullying.

I feel like a lot of bullying goes on because some kids want to look cool. I also think that
Krug 2

kids bully because they think they’re lower than someone else, and they want to try to show that they’re better. Bullying needs to be stopped, because everyone is a human being and everyone has feelings. No one deserves to be disrespected or treated differently than someone else just because someone disapproves something about them.

Something needs to be done about it. To make an effort to stop bullying, people should start by working on themselves. They shouldn’t allow themselves to pick on somebody else because of their values, beliefs, personality, or image. They should also do some research and inform themselves on things that bullying has caused.

As they start getting more comfortable with dealing with bullying, they need to start taking a stand when they see bullying happen. They should make sure to let people know that they are not okay with it. They need to make it clear to the person being bullied that they are there for them, and make sure the bully knows that they want them to leave the person alone, as long as the situation seems safe. Afterwards they should talk to a trusted adult about the situation so someone else with higher authority can deal with the problem.

If you’re the one being bullied, make sure that you reassure yourself that you are not the problem in the situation, clearly the bully is. Keep your head high and make sure to stay strong so that you can be less of a target, and so that bullies can’t bring you down. It can be tough, but if you have problems with bullying, see a trusted adult. It’s not wrong to get help.

Bullying causes a lot of problems in people’s lives who normally don’t deserve it, and something definitely needs to be done about it to stop it.

The Problem of Bullying

Bullying is a problem that needs to be stopped and prevented. Here are some examples of things at school that needs to stop to prevent the bullying from happening: Security cameras in every classroom so the principal can monitor everything. A security guard or guards for every room to instantly stop the bully(s). Hallway security to make sure bullies don’t pick on others in the halls.

If there were security cameras in every room, the principal would be able to see who could be stirring up trouble. Let’s say that a student picks on another

student in a classroom when the teacher is out, the principal would catch that student and call him or her down. If calling the student down to the office doesn’t work, the principal would send people down to get him or her. If the student refuses to reveal the truth to the principal, then the principal would show the video proof.

If we had security guards for every room, the guards would be able to catch the bully(s) and take them down to the office. Let’s say that a student is trash talking in class, the security guard(s) would have to lead the student out of the room. If the student refuses to leave, the guard(s) would have to carry the student out of the room. If the student refuses to tell the truth to the principal, the guard(s) would tell the story to the principal instead.
If we had security guards in the hallways, then the bullies would get caught in the act and get sent to the office. Let’s say a huge student picks on an average smart student, the guard(s) would eventually catch on and take the bully to the office. If the bully refuses, the guards would have to take the bully away and the student who was picked on would go also to explain his or her story. If the bully refuses to tell the truth, the picked on student would explain his side of the story with the guard(s) help.

Bullying is a problem that needs to be stopped and prevented. If we had any of the above at every school, then bullying won’t become a serious problem. It is almost impossible to end bullying completely, but it is possible to prevent it. My fellow reader(s), I recommend that you take a camera to school everyday and record or take a picture of someone who is bullying and show it to your teacher, parent, or principal, If you do this, you will become proud that you caught that person who was bullying.

Bullying

How would you feel about bullying someone if you knew it would end with tragic results? Bullying can end if a kid gets bullied enough they could want to end their lives. There is evidence that bullying has increased the risk for suicide. Bullying leads to several suicides a year. It is estimated that at least 15 to 25 kids commit suicide in the UK alone because of bullying. Bullying is causing many deaths and effecting too many peoples lives negatively and it needs an end put to it. –

Bullying needs to be ended and stopped. Kids who witness bullying should think how the kid being picked on feels and tell the bully to stop what they are doing and leave them alone. There is a bill trying to be passed in Augusta that I read about in the newspaper. The bill will provide educators and administrators with a full identification of bullying. The bill is also forbidding cyber bulling. With this bill there will be criminal penalties for cyber bullying.

It is estimated that 160,000 kids every day refuse to go to school in the U.S. because they want to avoid being bullied. Many other kids that go to school school must deal with anxiety and depression. It is said that six out of every ten American kids witness bullying at least once a day. Bullying also results in headaches, stomach pains, reduced appetite, shame, anxiety, aggression, and depression. Bullying lowers the targets self-esteem.

Bullying is not just face-to-face, verbal and physical, it happens online. This form of bullying is called cyber bulling. It usually happens through social networking sites like Facebook
McGlaufljn 2

and Twitter it can happen through texting too. The cyber bullies hide behind a computer screen instead of dealing with their problems directly. Kids will say posts things on there social networking sites that can be offensive. This is also a way to start rumors easily and it travels faster than you think and can almost never be removed.

Bullying is causing many deaths and affecting too many people’s lives negatively and it needs an end put to it. Bullying needs to be ended stopped and prevented. It is estimated that 160,000 kids every day refuse to go to school in the U.S. because they want to avoid being bullied. Bullying is not just face to face, verbal and physical, it happens online. Bullying is a horrible thing and victims of bullying want to end there life this is why it needs to be stopped.

I am going to try to help take a stand against bullying at my school. ff1 see anyone getting bullied then I will tell them to stop and if they continual bulling than Twill report it, I feel that at my school there is not enough done about bullying and there needs to be more done.
