October is National Bullying Prevention Month

By ELLEN OLSSON
USD 465 Prevention Education Coordinator
Published: Sunday, October 2, 2011 11:08 PM CDT


The Kansas Legislature has recognized the need for dealing with the issue of bullying in the schools. KSA 72-8256 requires Kansas schools to have a bullying prevention policy and provide training for students and staff.

 

“The culture of bullying won’t end until people across the country take action and show children and teens that they care,” says Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which has sponsored the month since 2006. PACER’s motto is “The End of Bullying Begins with You.”

 

Randy J. Wiler, director of the Kansas Bullying Prevention Program released a baseline survey of nearly 19,000 students from 74 Kansas schools. The survey reveals that 35.1 percent of Kansas students in grades three-12 are regularly victimized by students who bully.

(Reuters) - Weeks after the suicide of 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer in western New York, school officials, police and lawmakers are grappling with ways to prevent the kind of schoolyard bullying being blamed for his death.

 

The openly gay teen's parents Tim and Tracy Rodemeyer are calling for changes in how New York schools handle the kind of chronic harassment that drove their son to kill himself outside their suburban Buffalo home on September 19.

'Bullycide’ bill would protect new Yorkers from cyberbullying

 

Albany — A bill introduced this week by Sen. David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) would make “bullycide” a felony if adopted.

 

The bill would expand second-degree manslaughter to include death by cyberbullying when a perpetrator intentionally or recklessly causes a victim to commit suicide.

 

===> It would be punishable by up to 15 years in prison. <===

There are many opinions on the outrageous and desperate measures today’s youth take.

 

Children find no other alternative to impulsively do something, without thinking of the future consequences of their actions.

 

Perhaps many children find it necessary to escape the reality of living by thinking the world is better off without them. Their young minds have to be nurtured to accept that which is and truthfully realize change can not happen without their presence.

Bullying is violence, it should be considered a crime...

 

Suddenly you became a stranger in your own home. Your parents, once the source of all comfort to you, became potential jurors. Your siblings started to give evidence against you. You start to dread coming home.

 

The majority of your friends, sensing trouble, become distant or they abandon you entirely. Your religious leaders condemn people like you, your teachers openly mock people like you, your society writes laws to oppress people you, even the kids on the street knew your name is mud.

And all this before you turned 15? Would you think you had it rough?

Madi W. knows what it’s like to be hounded by death threats, nasty phone calls, and racist jibes. Four years ago, kids from her middle school in suburban Maryland started attacking her by cellphone, text messages, and on social media sites.

 

Then last fall, the assaults followed her to high school. Someone sent a text calling her the N-word and attached an image of a stick figure getting whipped. Over Thanksgiving break, a bunch of girls left a string of cruel phone messages and texts, calling her a “half-rican” and a “whore” and telling her to kill herself. In January, a former friend accused her of spreading rumors—and vowed all over her Facebook wall that she’d beat up Madi.

The Internet has created a new place where bullies can go and anonymously taunt others. With last year's suicide of Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi, (and many others) it has become more apparent that we need to help our students be more cyber smart and learn about why bullying is something to be taken seriously.

Bullying is clouded by a fog of silence.

Bullying and bullying behaviours are recognised as one of the more contributing factors in cases of non or diminished attendance at school. The stresses placed on the targets of bullying have far reaching effects on the emotional health and wellbeing, educational successes and subsequent life chances.

 

BulliesOut provides much needed help support and information to individuals, schools, youth and community settings affected by bullying. The charity was established in May 2006 and the determination and tireless work of its team ensures that thousands of young people are helped and supported through this cruel act each year.

Montclair and the rest of our society cannot accept malignantly aggressive behavior perpetrated by people, whether adults or juveniles.

 

For young people, who are physically, intellectually and psychologically developing, intolerable actions can cause both immediate and lasting damage.

Hurtful actions committed by youths against other youths are dangerous, destructive — and unacceptable.

 

Adults who bully and brutalize other adults or children face misdemeanor or felony charges. But our nation's laws are much less focused on abuse perpetrated by minors against other young people. Police officers and school officials generally are reluctant to levy consequential penalties on young people, legitimately noting that a wayward youth may have failed to recognize the consequence of her or his bad action.
