3)I think people bully other kids if they are academically challenged because bullies think that they are weak and think that they cand do what they wan't to them.

4)Cyber Bullying is different than regalur bulling because cyber bullying is not verbally or physically doing soemthing to them.

I agree with everything you said! I loved how you said that the academically challenged people are bullied because the bully thinks that they are weak and that they can beat them up. Also, cyber bullying is one of the worst types of bullying. People think they can say whatever they want because it's not face to face.

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.

For Bullied Bus Monitor, Karen Klein, Donations to Take Hurt Away

For Bullied Bus Monitor, Karen Klein, Donations to Take Hurt Away | Emily Sheridans opinions on bullying | Scoop.it
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.
Emily Sheridan's insight:

I think it is absolutely sickening! It's hard to believe that people these days have the courage to say that type of stuff to a sixty-eight year old woman. I can't even process the fact that the boys thought that was funny. It is completely horrible to think that this video has reached 4.7 million views. I hope that after people have read this article, they feel sickened for this lady. I think these boys chose to bully this lady because they thought they were going to get attention that way. Hopefully now that those boys have seen the video of them bullying the lady they will no longer be bullies.

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.
TrippVaughn's curator insight, January 28, 2013 8:00 PM

     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.
