“Bullying is a big problem that effects millions of students, and it has everyone worried, not just the kids on it’s receiving end” (Lyness 1).

Melinda was affected by being bullied and led to many things and one of them is thinking about suicide.

I would like to quote a terrible incident that my neighbour was a target of serious emotional abuse where she put her home details online and she became of a serious assault and robbery. This has a psychological effect on young people. There are many different psychological problems that children could got through if they have been bullied physically or online things like a lack of confidence or them not wanting to socialize or worst case scenario suicide could occur, there has been a recent case of a girl called Amanda Todd who was bullied in her school and that made her change schools just to receive the same abuse this.
Therefore, they display higher levels of antisocial, violent and/or criminal behaviour. The implications of cyberbullying depend on the severity of bullying they have experienced (Brighi, 2012). The more frequent and severe they were bullied, the higher possibility of being unsociable, violence and committing crimes. For instance, victims were at the centre of attention when they were publically humiliated, they felt embarrassed and shameful, ultimately, they alienated themselves from the society (Sonja, 2011; Slonje & Smith,
Yell explains the current laws and regulations on disciplining students in special education. Throughout the chapter Yell breaks down the different aspects of discipline in schools in regards to special education. Yell starts out explaining the procedural due process used to create fair polices. Yell also talks about how schools are given the power to act as parent for the child while they are at school.

It is to be hoped that now, the issue with bullying can be related to the increase of school safety. There has to be something done in account for the students who get hurt from other children who have anger issue and erupt sporadically. Raising eyebrows from various school board officials and parents, the concern to ensure safety in schools has forced teachers and principals to be the band-aid from any harm that may bruise its reputation. As much media as incidents over disputes in school get broadcasted, there is not enough attention on the ways these things are being put to a halt by the city’s government officials. Organizations, social media movements and strikes have elevated because of the concern t protect the futures of tomorrow.

In many different tragic cases, this type of physical and emotional stress can really take a toll on a person so much that the ending results are suicide for the victim. There had been so many times that I had thought about suicide and that I had got so close but I was just too scared. Many can't say that about wanting to take their own life but I was honestly scared. There was times when I just didn't care and I would get so close and then I would get anxious and nervous and just step back from the edge of taking my own life. There are so many signs and symptoms of children getting bullied and I personally have experienced all of them.
Children can also get mental problems because of spanking such as killing themselves. Children start to think about why they were born and asking themselves if they should live in a world where they just get spanked all the time. Therefore, parents who spank their children should change their minds about spanking their children. Spanking children is not a good way to discipline them because children will have bad relationships with parents and other people. For example, children who are usually spanked by their parents have problems with them because of spanking, so children will become more aggressive with other people who are around them.
Bullying is a plague that creeps up on schools and spreads through rumors, causing innocent students to suffer. This is serious because, bullying is harmful towards anyone, especially to those in school. It could distract students from their studies and create a low self-esteem that can ruin future careers. Now there are already laws towards bullying such as discrimination, assault, and harassment, but those laws need to be enforced. However they are not, because in most cases of bullying it is usually one person’s word against the others.
