Going to school shouldn’t be a punishment. Many pieces of literature reveal the theme of bullying such as; Please Stop Laughing At Me by Jodee Blanco, but people should look for something good in others instead of the bad will make differences. Bullying is not just someone punching you in the face or a bully calling you a name that you don't like. Bullying is a lot more than that; there are even different types of bullying.

Bullying Bullying in schools is a normal part of school life, or is it? Many have believed over the years that bullying is a rite of passage, something normal and acceptable. This mentality is harmful, physically and mentally to both the victim and the bully. Some people argue that bullying is just a "rite of passage," but that certainly doesn't make it acceptable.

in the end he does stuff up but, everything is ok because the girl he likes come up to him at the end and tell him to forget about it and move on. PERSONAL CONNECTION I am similar to Ishmael because when i was younger people used to not bully but, kind of make fun of me because of my last name butt, it was only a minor thing and over time i got over it and ignored them. the difference between me and him is he has the unfortunate disease of Ishmael Leseur syndrome which i do not have. if i was in his situation i would have probably ask to move class to a different one and ask my mum or dad to pick me up after school instead of walking or catching the bus home. GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING In a way it kind of made me look at the world differently because Ishmael has the unfortunate disease of Ishmael leseur which would not be very nice to have.
Something seems out of whack here. Has it ever occured to the people who believe this that punishment in school is intended to show the child that they have done wrong? Besides which, I don't see dumb people having any trouble reproducing. Personally, they often seem to have less trouble.

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. Bullying harms us not only in our youth, but for the rest of our lives. In the poem “To This Day” by Shane Koyczan, we hear the story of children who have faced the effects of being bullied. A little girl for something as foolish as a birthmark on her face and a boy for thinking pork chops and karate chops were the same. Age did not change the words that cut through that poor little girl.
Parents should be aware of bullying and be available for any instances that occur. Bullying is a very complex word to define.
