However, as a result of a repetitive behaviour from the child X the “bully” will be excluded by the rest of the class or group.

The impact that discrimination has on everybody involved is very big and can affect people in many different ways. Service users who are discriminated against by their service provider may feel disempowered, feel less powerful or loss of confidence meaning the individual’s sadness will occur because of the feeling of neglect, anxiety and they will finally disengage and withdraw from others.

“ There is even an underlying element of self-hatred here, as individuals try to deal with their problems by doing violence to themselves.” A hole through the skin or a tattoo cannot erase the grief behind it, increase creativity, or redefine self-identity. Moreover, extreme body modification is considered obnoxious within the society. People tend to become uncomfortable around someone who has unappealing piercing all over their face or body. They are considered extremely censored and because of this “The US Navy has banned ‘tattoos/body art that are excessive, obscene, sexually explicit or symbolize discrimination.” Body piercing expresses the crisis of social identity but extreme body modification can also be harmful to oneself.

The reason that spanking confuses them is simply this; parents are the example of the difference between right and wrong and all spanking is doing is telling the child is that every time somebody does something wrong they should be smacked for the mistake they made.
I take her comments to heart as a personal attack that I’m either not feeding them enough or that I’m spoiling them too much. I feel it has a lot to do with my low self esteem on my part when it comes to being a parent or on any other topic that I feel insecure about. For others it can be that they are generally defensive all of the time and perceive negative judgments in anything said to them instead of on separate issues. Responding defensively happens when you have a bad perception of the person’s message; you perceived the person doesn’t like/ respect/ trust you and expresses it in their communication.

People often believe that bullies are individual sadists in society, who seek pleasure from other’s despair. Due to this common misconception, people fail to understand that an average citizen can become a bully based on the circumstantial factors in an atmosphere (Zimbardo, Lucifer). Various psychological experiments have proven that bullying occurs due to the presence of specific social factors in an environment. Anonymity is a primary social factor which promotes bullying, since it creates a lack of empathy in an atmosphere. The ignorance of authority figures is another social factor which causes bullying since it creates an acceptable environment for victimization.
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.

However they are not, because in most cases of bullying it is usually one person’s word against the others.
