What is bullying?
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
When I was younger and went to public schools I was bullied, as the years go on, it seems the bullying is getting a lot worse. It seems as if everyday I hear something about a child dying at the hands of the bully or them committing suicide because they can no longer take being called the filthy names, that no child deserves to be called.
My daughter went to public schools for a whole 3 months before I pulled her and said no more, it’s said to see how hateful kids are in kindergarten even. I don’t regret one minute pulling my child out of the public schools. I often get asked questions such as… How is she going to learn the social skills she needs to get through life? How is she going to learn how to interact with others? Well, if those social skills people talk about is the hate coming from the other kids, I don’t want her to learn them. If the interaction she gets from others is jumping in on the bullying or being bullied herself, I don’t want her to have no part of it.
I was once told by someone that my daughter is the youngest person they have met, that can hold on a conversation and actually understand what’s being said.
Most girls her age in the public schools are to busy being jealous over the person they’re bullying.
Parents, you are to blame for your kids actions. If you have a child that is being a bully I blame YOU. It’s your fault they are the way they are, and I am sure I will get emails bitching at me for blaming the parents, but guess what… We are our children’s first teacher they learn from us, it is our job as the parents to make sure our children have the proper morals and ethics, and they know that they should treat others the way they want to be treated.
If we as parents took the time to educate our children we could fight bullying.
Sure we cannot expect our children to be friends or even like everyone they come across, but we can expect them to treat everyone with respect, and not to be down right hateful to them.
Another thing that pisses me off, is when a child like Bailey is beat-up by someone who has been bullying him at school. Not one person hitting this child, but several and this child didn’t fight back, and the school says “after our investigation we didn’t find there to be any bullying in the days or weeks following this incident”.
I have seen them say that several times know when a child dies because of their bullying. I want to know when is the schools actually going to do something about bullying. When are they going to take up for the little guy or girl who cannot take up for themselves against the hate coming from the hallways. When are they going to admit they have a issue in their schools…
Teachers and parents YOU are the key to stopping this bullying, you are the ones that need to be educating these kids, and until the parents and the schools stand up and admit there is a serious issue, more and more kids will end their lives, because they cannot take it any longer.
If you are a bully and you find the need to call the girl walking down the hall a whore, or a slut, or whatever it is you feel like calling her that morning, you need to stop before you open your mouth, and think how you would feel if that girl walking down the hall was calling you those names. You can say it wouldn’t bother you, but then not only would you be a bully, you would also be a liar.
Parents and teachers make a difference and educate yourself on what bullying really is, so you can stop it before it gets out of hand.
