How to Prevent and Stop Bullying in School

How to Prevent and Stop Bullying in School | Carson's opinion on bullying |
While bullying may be a more common problem among middle-school and high-school age children, the fact is that school bullying can occur among younger elementary school kids as well.

1.Why do you think that people bully kids with disabilitys'? 2.Who do you think this message is written for? 3.Why is bullying happening more at school than out of school? 4.Where do you think bullying happens more, high school or middle school and why?


Carson Greene's comment, January 30, 2013 9:58 AM
I think people bully kids with disabilities because the disabled person is usually physically or mentally weaker. I believe this message is written to parents so they can help their child deal with bullying. Bullying is happening mainly in schools because there are more potential targets for the bullies at schools. I think bullying happens more in middle school because everybody wants to be popular and will more than likely step on others to get there.

I think you are totally right about kids with disabilities, but did you also think that another reason could be because they are intellectually challenged or they are too smart? I also think that you are partially right about bullying in middle school. It could also be because of their physical appearance which doesn't happen as much in highschool because they are more mature and not as self centered.

For Bullied Bus Monitor, Karen Klein, Donations to Take Hurt Away | Carson's opinion on bullying |
An online fund-raising drive for a 68-year-old Rochester woman who was brutally taunted by a group of 12- and 13-year-old boys has proved hugely successful.
Ella Thomason's curator insight, January 24, 2013 11:22 PM

In my opinion, these boys did this because they thought that they would become popular, and they would gain attention. i think that the seventh grade boys posted this to be funny. This action was a mistake! If they thought that there was any humor in this, they were just plain desprite for attention. There is nothing funny about this. The boys probably didn't have an inspiration to this horrible act. My response to this is NOT laughter. My response is anger and sadness.

I believe that these boys bullied this woman to amuse their peers and gain popularity among their friends. I think they probably uploaded the video to YouTube for the same reason. They thought they would be famous for bullying this woman, and they are, but not in a good way. These kids should be ashamed for what they did. This is just plain cruel.

     I think the boys were insecure and wanted to become popular. They probably were insecure about their weight, the amount they sweat, and their hearing. They also thought that doing this would make them popular and cool. 


     They posted the video on youtube because the boys probably thought that doing this would make them cool and popular. If they spread the word about it the boys thought that it would make them more popular.


     The boys'motivation was to feel better about themselves and to gain attention by becoming popular.


     This article horrified and sickened me while it brightened my day at the end. it is just shocking that anybody would do such a crime, especially to a grammother. The way Max Sidorov responded is just amazing. he raised massive amounts of money for Mrs. Klein. Finnaly, raising money for Max Sidorov is a great idea. Giving kindness back to the giver is the best way to respond to anything like this.

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.
Carlin Weinberg's curator insight, January 24, 2013 4:47 PM

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.

Know the facts about bullying — even if you don’t think it affects your child.

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. This article is very helpful for parents yet sometimes there is no solution. I think it is wonderful to get bullying articles out into the world so people can read them and wont bully.
