I experienced the bullying most with people annoying and mess ing up stuff. Bullying has impact on how you do stuff and how you interact and how you do your work. Bullying can be prevented by telling your parents. Yes I think bullying effects the world because it makes the students kill themselves.

What type of bullying did you mean by that? What kind of "stuff"? Good Job but it needs more explaining...

As I said before, I would of atleast signed my name. That would show that you care, yet did not have the strength enough to actually say to feel better.

The narrator isn't rude for not signing the card, but the narrator not signing the card shows that Billy hurt her feelings enough for her not to sign the card. It also tells you that she felt no sympathy for those who had shown none for her. I would sign the card because I would feel bad about for him losing his mother. But, a card couldn’t save his cruel personality, only he could change that. It sounds like a very realistic story because children are insensitive towards others who are obese, and often feel as if they should be bullied.

This story seems realistic, yet not. It is realistic beacuse of the actions of the kids. For instance, you might not sign the card if you hate someone. It is not realistic because I don't think kids would play with dead birds.

The card is for your "deepest sympathies" for Billy and his family. Dorothy pauses for a minute because Billy had been so mean to her, and then doesn't put anything. I think I would of been the same as Dorothy because he had been so mean to her. I would think this is a true story. My reasoning is that here is your usual bullying. Billy calls her names and then Dorothy doesn't do anything. Then you have Dorothy who returns the bullying when she doesn't sign the card. I would think many victims of bullying would try to bully the bully back.

     I think that the narrator is being immature by not signing the card. She became a bully by not signing the card. Even if somebody was mean to me my whole life, I would have signed that card. I think there is no excuse for not signing that card and that what she did is worse than what Billy did to her.

     I would have signed that card.

     Sadly, I think this story could be realistic. I would have never done what the kids did. This story could happen because emotions can cloud people's judgement. Anger is the worst decision maker you can have. If you let anger make your decisions you are becoming a bully too. This story could happen, even with so many people wishing it couldn't.

Bully Official Trailer #1 - Weinstein Company Movie (2012) HD

Bully Official Trailer #1 - Weinstein Company Movie (2012) HD This year, over 5 million American kids will be bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home,...
Carlin Weinberg's insight:

1. The fact that this boy is being bullied of something that is not necessary to be bullied about. He relates to August because they both wish not to go to school feeling mistreated everyday.

2. It is so tempting to join in because everyone does bully someone atleast once in a while. It is one part of "fitting in" in today's world.

3. Parents worked at their hardest. They tried to get the school to admit that this boy's classmates are misbehaving on the bus.

4. I believe the parents have a bigger role in bullying. The kid did not know what to do. He did not stand up for himself and get suspended, to keep from learning.

5. It is different because parents and kids have different priviledges. The parents have a right to sue if serious. Kids have to just deal with it, or be in isolation from the bully.

This story reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because both kids are bullied for being different. August is bullied for not looking "normal" and the boy in the movie is bullied for being smarter than "normal." People who join in on bullying are less likely to get bullied themselves. They can become friends with the bully and escape the torments of being a victim. In my opinion, parents are not very useful in preventing bullying. In most cases, kids don't want to tell their parents that they are being bullied, or they will sound like a snitch. The role that the kids play is much more crucialthan the parents. Obviously, your parents are going to stick up for you, but what you really need is for other kids to help you. If the bullies finds themselves out-numbered, they may back down.

This movie reminds me of Wonder because it is about a boy who is getting bullied because of his physical appearance. I think join bullies because they think that the bully is cool and knows if he's on the bully's side, then he won't be the next target. Parents can do speeches and assemblies to tell kids how to prevent bullying, but, at the end of the day, if a bully wants to hurt someone physically or emotionally, they will despite actions of adults. The role of adults is smaller because bullying usually occurs when adults are not around. Also, most adults don't really understand bullying because it is different now than it was when they were growing up. Parents can prevent bullying by making sure their kid isn't the bully and helping their kid. Kids can help by being nice to kids that get bullied a lot or telling their friend if they are bullying someone, because usually the bully doesn't even realize the extent of their bullying until later.

This trailer reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because of a couple different reasons. The first one, of course, is that he was bullied at school, but it also reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because he did not want to go to school because of the mean kids, which relates to August's excuse. I think that it would be tempting to join in on bullying because the bullies are usually the cool kids, so you feel like agreeing with the cool kids will make you cool. I think that parents play a big role in bullying because a victim of bullying to tell his mom or dad, without anyone knowing. I would think, and hope, that the bullys' parents do not want the children to bully, so if the bullied child's parents told the bully's parents, the bully would most likely get into trouble. However, a common reason for bullying is a lack of a family life, so in some cases, telling the bully's parents may not stop anything. I think that a parent's role in bullying is smaller than the child's, because the child has to stand up for himself at one point, and have the parents as a backup plan. If the child can learn to be strong and stand up for himself, he will eventually be strong enough to not be to hurt by bullying. THis will let the victim be able to overcome bullying completely, and the whole problem will be solved.
