As a big sister, I hope that none of my siblings get wrapped up with facebook or the internet in general. My sister has been bullied in the past and I would hate for the bullying to be awaiting her at home if she were to go on the internet at a later age. It is incredibly scary to think about just how cruel kids can be.

Jem Muldoon's curator insight, January 20, 2013 12:08 PM

This document provides a list of dos and don’ts for schools in developing anti-bullying practices and policies. The purpose of this document is to provide concrete ways in which schools 1) can assess if they’re doing the right things; 2) have tactical recommendations aimed at improving their school culture, curricula, and school policies. Findings are grounded in research findings on actions and activities that have been shown to help schools improve anti-bullying efforts.

Katie Chung's curator insight, December 9, 2013 12:52 AM

Like many other sensitive topics, bullying should be approached carefully and cautiously. This PDF is a great resource that give teachers the rundown of how to approach bullying and how to teach it in their classrooms. As teachers it is our duty not only to teach about topics like bullying, but approach it in a way that will not put students on the spot or calls out specific students. We must remember that bullying happens to be a very personal issue and should be doing all we can do to teach it in an effective, yet sensitive way.

It has been suggested that victimization by bullies has led to self-harm, suicide and even school shootings. Often, bullying is treated as pathological. The bully has a disease that needs to be cured.

Jem Muldoon's curator insight, February 8, 2013 1:09 PM

"Research shows that most bullies — excluding those who have not previously been victims of bullying themselves — do not suffer from mental or emotional problems. They do not have problems with experiencing empathy or with theory of mind. Maybe bullies are not victims of a disorder. Bullies might simply be behaving rationally. They have weighed the costs and benefits of bullying and have determined that the rewards outweigh the risks."
