I like that the government is taking part in preventing bullying because it is a problem in schools these days. If the children realize that there are truly repercussions to their actions they are less likely to bully other children.

How Can We Help Children Become 'Upstanders' to Bullying?

How Can We Help Children Become 'Upstanders' to Bullying? | Preventing bullying | Scoop.it
The common denominator of all types of bullying is a lack, or erosion, of empathy. Nurturing empathy, a potential that is present in almost all children, is therefore at the heart of interventions to prevent bullying.
Rubi Valencia's insight:

"Students need active guidance, as often as we can provide it.W ithout our help, conflict between children too often leads to defensiveness."

Julia Bennett's comment, May 6, 2013 10:58 PM
I like that this article points out that a lack of empathy is a main reason for bullying because teachers can do activities with children, and so can parents to help make their children more empathetic!

Bullying Prevention: Start Before Kindergarten

“Many children experience the beginnings of bullying behavior for the first time while in daycare, preschool, or kindergarten,” explains Karen Goldberg, a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in working with parents and children, including adolescents. “The groundwork for how to deal with and prevent bullying behavior is laid early on. The sooner children are given tools for preventing bullying, the more effective they will be.”

I think this is so true we need to start addressing bullying issuse in preschool before the sooner they understand. Giving them the tools earlier on in life will help prevent bullying to happen later on in life.
Chelsey Johnson's curator insight, April 27, 2014 6:20 PM

I remember I was being bullied at a very young age because I was the really quiet girl and one day even my bully had to tell me to start standing up for myself. If we teach children to stand up for themselves at a young age they will become more confident and maybe even help other students in the future of even currently.

Understanding, Preventing and Dealing with Bullying Today

Understanding, Preventing and Dealing with Bullying Today | Preventing bullying | Scoop.it

Dr. Joel Haber discusses the causes of bullying, how we can prevent it, and how empathy can help reduce bullying in our schools.

 

3. How can empathy building in schools and at home help to prevent bullying?

Empathy is the cornerstone of human behavior and an antidote of bullying.  When children learn empathy and choose to use it when they see bullying, it changes the way peers feel safe.  The challenge for me has been to give students ways to use their empathy so they do not feel that they will become the next targets of the bully if they intervene. 

 

Helping children utilize empathy in a way that they would like others to use empathy with them is the key.  Every child needs support and encouragement even after bullying.  When children feel supported by others, even if it is after a bullying situation, they do not feel the isolation and pain that others feel without support.  Teaching empathy scripts in pre-school, elementary, middle and high school helps build the brain networks to utilize empathy when most needed.
