Don’t Cross the Line Not knowing where the line is, can really drive people to the edge, literally. Bullying has become a part of everyday teenage life. Some people think of it as a joke and just mucking around until the victim decides they’ve had enough, and believe suicide is their only option. Kids don’t realise how severely the words they use can harm the people they aim it at that they cannot persuade them that they mean nothing. Social networks and websites have made it easier for kids to bully others anonymously and harshly.
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.
The warning signs of bullying should not be ignored, therefore it is important to truly understand the affects that bullying holds on children. During my research I found that children can be bullied for many reasons which many include: how fast or slow they learn, choice of lifestyles, height (too tall or too short), race, religion, where they live, their style of clothing or hairstyle, the way they speak, wearing glasses or braces, their disability or for no reason at all. One example of bulling is from a February 2008 news story about a kid named Larry King. He was murdered for being gay. It said in People Magazine that another kid killed Larry by shooting him in the head twice.
Someone Had to Say It Self esteem crushed, day ruined, all because someone thought they were funny.  Bullying outside of school and throughout the rest of the world is a real issue that nobody seems to be showing any concern towards. People gather everyday to be bullies and bystanders just because it would seem inhumane for them to be doing anything else with their day. Bullies are people with no respect towards others, and are not taking into consideration that what they are doing is going to affect their victims for the rest of their lives.  Bullying needs to be stopped, but not just at school.
To strike or slap with force using the open hand is the definition of smacking which is the issue that is being debated a lot amongst many people. The controversial issue is weather smacking children is morally right or wrong in the 21st century. Smacking children is an issue, which is very, complicated hence the reason why so many people have opinioned opinions on the issue. Some people are for smacking children as they feel hitting children allows discipline whereas other people feel that smacking children in an ineffective way of discipline and only teaches violence. Therefore In this essay I intend to put across both side of the arguments and then conclude with my own personnel opinion.
“To This Day”, Bullying Breaks Us Leona Nelson Bullying can leave you broken. Youths are the most vulnerable of us and words have a habit of leaving scars on them. Laughter can cause tears and even your closest friends can be cruel. We spend almost twelve of our most important developmental years of life being emotionally and even physically beaten down and broken because of bullying. Thrust into the real world with our confidence almost permanently shattered, we are expected to be successful and important when prior to that we were always told the opposite.
McElroy confirms this by stating that “society is brutal to those who are different.” Without speaking would be hard for Gauvin to make friends when conversation is hard for him to communicate with other kids and understand them. Sign language is a type of communication that not many young children are exposed to; therefore, sign language is strange to them when someone, such as a deaf person, uses sign to try to communicate with them. This could expose their son to be made fun of by his fellow classmates and possibly bullied and later on become isolated by them as well, and growing up all kids want to be accepted by their classmates. No one ever wants to be the outcast of any social
Some kids with special needs do not feel pain so to spank them would be pointless. When the child does not respond to the pain from the spanking the adult may get frustrated and the spanking may turn into anger and it can turn bad fast. Some children do things but can’t help it. No matter how many times you spank them you can’t stop them from doing it as they do not know they are doing because it is part of the
There is also too much bad press on young people as a result. I myself will convince you that kids in fort William are not all bad if they have something to occupy them. The media portrays to the public that all kids are bad and all kids cause chaos in the streets and distress in whole community by causing crime. These kids may cause crime occasionally but people think kids are up to to something when they first see them. These people would not do wrong if they had other things to do .
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".
