Bullying does not just affect the victim, inadvertently; it affects everyone the victim is associated with too. Bullying should be seen as a crime because it ruins the targets chances at a normal and happy childhood, which everyone is rightfully entitled to, it destroys children’s and adolescents self-esteem, puts them into a depression, they may stop attending school which will in turn lower their grades, and it can even lead to self-harm and suicide. Usually children look forward to making friends at school and playing games with others, but if a child is bullied, they then become an outcast and slowly start reproaching socializing with society. The ones who have been bullied are usually the more subdued and quiet children. They probably do not speak in class or in a group and usually tend to avoid team sports and activities because they do not want to be chosen last.
Bullying can now lead to criminal cases and lawsuits. By the schools letting bullying continue it teaches students that it's ok. This creates a fearful environment instead of a learning one. Students feel "let me bully so I don't get bullied". Bullying victims can have a lot of stress added on and it can lead to retaliation such as school shootings as well as suicide.
Physical bullying is anything that would hurt or injure a person; meaning licking, punching, hitting or taking something that belongs to someone else and destroying it (“Types of Bullying” par 1). In elementary and middle schools 30.5% of bullying is physical (“Types of Bullying” par 1). In the web article Types of Bullying, it states that verbal bulling is name-calling, making offensive remarks or joking about a person’s religion, gender ethnicity, socioeconomic status or the way they look. It also states that 46.5% of all bullying in schools is verbal bullying. Also that verbal aggression is when a bully teases someone.
March 7, 2011 Spanking a Good Way to Teach and Discipline if Used in the Right Way Have you ever wondered how many people incarcerated today are there because the came from an abusive childhood? Have you ever thought about what how one’s life would be different if their parents would have taken the time to use effective discipline or just simply taken the time to explain to their kids what they are doing or did is wrong and therefore must be punished? It has been argued that spanking should be done away with. Some like myself believe when used properly and the parent has explained to the child; what he/she did was wrong spanking could be a very effective tool in not only raising your kids but disciplining them as well. Supports 1.
Many children are being raised by a violent parent making their surrounding a living hell and believe violence is the only way to setting a conflict. The young teen wants attention like everyone else. Sometimes “Acting out” brings attention they desperately needs, like bullies bully children someone younger or quiet for attention or fighting with there peers. Researchers found that violence deaths are similaR School Violence
This quote shows that the bullies are more concentrated on bullying their victims rather than their school work. This quote also shows that bullies are not very concentrated in school and will probably fail in school and not get a good career. Another example that shows that students are beginning not to care about school is, “Many of the victims are disengaged in school” (Wolpert 1). This evidence is important because the victims are scared of bullies and are really not concentrating in school like before they began to be bullied. Multiple victims who are hurt from being bullied are starting to fail in school.
Some people see corporal punishment as abusing, they wonder how anyone could do that to a child. They have better methods of dealing with their children when they misbehave. You can take away toys, game consoles, cell phone, their favorite activity, outside time, the list can go on as every child is different. Some think children that are spanked as a kid grows up to be violence adult. It has been said that all the violence in the world would slow down if we showed our children love and attention.
Shannon Bodensieck Professor Walsh April 12, 2012 Bullying In the video about bullying, I agree with what was said. Most kids bully without even knowing what they are doing. In the video all of the kids were asked to explain bullying as what they believe it is, the explanations from the kids ranged from saying it is an older kid stealing their lunch money to as far as racism. Honestly I believe that whether a child will become a bully as they grow up depends on how they are raised by their parents and what goes on in their home life. When the kids were asked if they have ever bullied someone else, most of the answers that were given were of course "No".
Diblasio believes that people are more aware of bullying and are finally taking action and reporting it. For example she claims “people are more likely to know about bullying and feel that they have to repot it” (Diblasio). This may be true; however are they targeting the right people? Most of the parents whose child is being bullying instantly assumes it is the schools fault, yet they don’t target the actual bully first. Like I have mentioned in the previous paragraph, schools only have limited power when it comes to bullying.
Chyna As many as 90 percent of parents think it's OK to spank young children (Taylor, par.2) Spanking in definition is: an act of slapping on the buttocks as a punishment for children. Although this act may seem harmless in some perspectives, it could be interpreted as abuse and an unloving act out of anger. Even though a parent’s child is their responsibility and their business, I do not agree with them having the right to spank their children. It has been proved that spanking children at age 3 makes them more likely to become bullies by age 5(Taylor, par.2). Children may see this act as hatred, uncaring, and can cause a bit of confusion.
