I think these methods are effective to stop bullying because it gets people of higher authority to join the cause. With connections to people like school officials, you have enough power to cause a change. However, this also may not help deal with bullying. In many schools, it's a law to stop bullying, but kids still do it regardless. In this school, we can talk to many people about bullying. Staff such as the guidance councelor or principal are willing to listen to serious issues like this, but honestly, I would be embarassed about it. It makes me feel smaller in ego because if I tell an adult, it makes me think that I'm weak and can't defend myself.

I agree with Tobe, these methods are affective to stop bullying. I like how Tobe thinks, but I don`t agree that connections with people will not stop bullying. I agree that talking about bullying would be embarassing and make me feel powerless to the bully.

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.

Jake Jamison's curator insight, January 24, 2013 8:42 PM

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.

This article is written for parents whose children were or are bullied. Most of the time parents don't feel the same pain as children do. They don't understand what it is like to be bullied.This article is very helpful for parents yet sometimes there are no solutions.
