Empathy, communication, student leaders key to tackling cyberbullying

Empathy, communication, student leaders key to tackling cyberbullying | Addressing Bullying | Scoop.it

In schools, that means working harder to cultivate a “culture of empathy” that extends beyond classrooms into cyberspace, he said, because technology makes it easier to factor conscience and morals out of communications. School systems that have experienced the greatest success in establishing a sense of “collectiveness” do so by enlisting students to lead the effort, he said.

 

Empathy must extend to those accused of cyberbullying. Because adolescents have yet to fully develop coping mechanisms for dealing with frustration, anger or jealousy, society must guard against scapegoating those accused of cyberbullying.

Drew Bulbuk's curator insight, June 25, 2013 8:38 PM

This is an interesting look at what could be done to prevent cyberbullying. If someone gets so upset, and takes it out on others online, they have no repercussion.  Legislature was recently passed to hold people accountable for this actions.  A school in Maine is even forcing students to use the internet through their online profiles, which can be easily tracked by the school district.  This is a great way of preventing the issue, but it certainly doesn't change the person.  It does a good job of showing people that their actions are detrimental as well.  The article states that adolescents have a hard time with coping mechanisms because they are still so immature in nature.  A separate paper I read on a different site quoted a 15 year old boy that said he only cyberbullied someone because it was a response to being cyberbullied the week before.  This mentality makes since for someone that age, and really shows where the source of the problem can lie.

Empathy, not just academics, key to success: Borba

Empathy, not just academics, key to success: Borba | Addressing Bullying | Scoop.it

Other countries might have more obvious concerns such as poverty, malnutrition, civil war or a high infant mortality, but the United States has as big a problem as exists anywhere in the world when it comes to empathy.

“In no area are American kids farther behind than with empathy,” said Michele Borba, an internationally acclaimed parenting and character education expert who recently returned from Colombia and Nicaragua.

Research shows that aggression is up in American children, and it’s starting a lot earlier, Borba said.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, April 19, 2013 3:16 PM

Bullying can affect everyone—those who are bullied, those who bully, and those who witness bullying and is linked to many negative outcomes. Take children's complaints of bullying seriously, whether at school, on the playground, in the park, on the Internet. Probing a seemingly minor complaint may uncover more severe grievances. Children are often afraid or ashamed to tell anyone that they have been bullied, so listen to their complaints!

What’s a character educator?

What’s a character educator? | Addressing Bullying | Scoop.it

One, that character matters no matter who you are or where you are. Two, that they might look at character education this way: If exercising builds strong muscles, then practicing the virtues of good behavior builds strong character. Three, one important way that our children learn character is from observing, imitating, and modeling what adults say and do.

 

This being the case, I remind them that they too are character educators.

The word “character” has two Cs in it; one stands for “choices” and the other for “consequences.” Living a life of good character, I tell them, doesn’t happen by chance, nor does it happen by circumstance. It happens by the choices we make.

 

                                    choices <===> consequences
