WATCH: The Anti-Bullying Ad Everyone Should See

WATCH: The Anti-Bullying Ad Everyone Should See | Bullying | Scoop.it
What if there was schoolyard bullying in the workplace? That's the question a recent anti-bullying video out of France poses -- and it's one of the most powerful ads we've seen.
Asia Colvin's insight:

This bullying anti-ad shows schoolyard bullying in a way that adults can understand. Because school officials seem to so easily ignore bullying, the makers of this ad decided to do something that would surprise and horrify adults and hopefully help everyone to see bullying in a very real way.

Bullying doesn't just affect school-aged youth. Think about how much bullying in schools is neglected and that will probably take you to the realization that bullying is happening in the workplace too. This article sheds light on how workplace bullying affects employers.

This film quickly covers the key points to the modern world of cyber bullying. However the point of this film is to go beyond these facts, and asks us to consider an idea. If less time was spent hating, and more time was spent sending positive and love filled messages, wouldn't the world be better off?

MA: Schools botch bully probes | Boston Herald

MA: Schools botch bully probes | Boston Herald | Bullying | Scoop.it

School districts statewide are poorly enforcing or even shrugging off their own anti-bullying policies in severe harassment cases, a Herald review has found, as legislators mull ways to toughen the state’s landmark 2010 bullying law.

 

A review of 22 noncompliance letters sent to school districts by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education reveals cases where administrators — presented with allegations of egregious taunting and assault — failed to interview victims or witnesses, kept parents in the dark and haphazardly documented the steps they were taking to address bullying.

 

“They certainly raise some serious questions about whether or not some of the instances are being handled appropriately,” state Rep. Alice Peisch, co-chairwoman of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education, said of the letters. “I actually would like to take a closer look at that.”

 

The Legislature is considering changes that would toughen bullying notification and reporting requirements in the law that was enacted after the bullying-related suicides of Carl Walker-Hoover, 11, of Springfield in 2009 and Phoebe Prince, 15, of South Hadley in 2010.

 

Parents dissatisfied with their schools’ handling of bullying allegations have submitted 83 complaints to the state since 2011. The 22 cases that prompted the state to order corrective actions — mostly additional staff training at schools — included:

Velvet Martin's curator insight, November 22, 2013 11:42 AM

Lets see just how applicable control of online bullying is within Authorities' utilization as with posts confided in social-utilities. Does this mean that officials will no longer be able to wield their authority against the public in retaliation for speaking the truth... Punishing parents, for example, with threats of law-suits or restricted access to their children?? (I'm guessing not.) Rather than beneficial, regulation is a ploy for increased government control.

Bully-Proof your Preschooler: EMPATHY

Bully-Proof your Preschooler: EMPATHY | Bullying | Scoop.it

Bully-Proof your Preschooler – Part 2: EMPATHY
In our last article, Bully-Proof Your Preschooler, we featured tips and signs for helping young children deal with aggressors. Today we’ll take a look at empathy and its role in prevention.


Why empathy matters
Empathy is the ability to understand and identify with another person’s feelings. It includes regulating one’s own emotions and is central to success in social relationships. Children who are empathic are less likely to use aggression.

 

Empathy has to be taught
Although there is evidence that the human brain may be pre-wired for empathy, just ask a group of toddlers to share a toy and you’ll see plenty of evidence that empathy doesn’t come naturally! It has to be taught. That’s why you play a crucial role in the development of empathy skills – starting in infancy.

This is a beautiful video and story. Although these kids know one of their friend is different they treat him no different. I am sincerely happy for him. I believe we should acknowledge and reward more kind acts in order to let kindness grow. 

spencer fouracre wootten's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:04 PM

I have seen this video on YouTube and it touched my heart. Thses boys love this kid who is different from them, and they all stood up for  him. He was getting picked on for wearing nice clothes like a suit and tie. His friends all wore a suit and tie to prove that they love him and won't stand for this to go on anymore. It is a heartwarming story that shows how loyal friends can be.
