“Sticks And Stones:” Does Facebook and Twitter Give Bullying More Power? | TIME.com

“Sticks And Stones:” Does Facebook and Twitter Give Bullying More Power? | TIME.com | Safety | Scoop.it
In Emily Bazelon's latest book, "Sticks and Stones," the senior editor for Slate argues that the Internet and social media make teen bullying more vicious and challenging to control. In an interview with the New York Times, Bazelon acknowledges parents’ role in navigating bullying as a tough one: “It’s obviously a huge challenge for parents, finding the balance you strike between protecting kids and expecting them to be a little bit tough, and learn how to stand up for themselves. It starts with that base idea that you have to know your kid, and know what they’re capable of, and give them room to do what they can do — not step in reflexively whenever there’s a problem. I think that builds some resilience in,” she says.

Mom catches daughter bullying classmates, hands out new millennium punishment

Mom catches daughter bullying classmates, hands out new millennium punishment | Safety | Scoop.it
Apparently, Hailey's mother discovered that her daughter was abusing fellow students (at least we assume it was fellow students and not just some random people), via the Internet. As a result, Hailey's mom decided the best course of action was to have her daughter sell her beloved iPod and give the proceeds to Beat Bullying, a charity that works to combat bullying in all its forms. Rather than keep the incident in-house, as it were, Hailey's mom had her write out the punishment on the aforementioned sign so that she could post the picture for all the world to see. "My name is Hailey. I am a kind, caring, smart girl, but I make poor choices with social media. As a punishment, I am selling my iPod and will be donating the money to the charity Beat Bullying, in hopes of changing my behavior as well as bringing awareness to Bullying. Because bullying is wrong."

Helping Kids Deal with Bullies

Helping Kids Deal with Bullies | Safety | Scoop.it
“ Carol Fredrickson shares how to talk with your child about bullying ” When your child comes to you saying that they have been the victim of bullying, remain calm. Fight the urge to jump into action and contain your anger. Listen and be fully engaged with your child and their story. Don’t interrupt or offer your opinion. Once they have finished ask them open ended questions that may help fill in any missing details. It is imperative that you get a hold of your emotions before jumping in to fix the situation. We must model appropriate behavior for our children. Three things that you can do regarding bullying: 1. Take bullying seriously. This is not a phase that your child is going through. Offer support to your child whether they are 6 or 16. This may be the most difficult issue that they have ever dealt with. 2. Consider enrolling your child into a martial arts program or a self-defense class. No, I am not suggesting that they learn to beat up the bully, but martial arts can build confidence in a child. Bullies rarely pick on a confident child – they almost always choose someone who is vulnerable or lacks confidence. 3. Teach your child how to respond to a bully. Teach them what they CAN do in order to give them back some power. They need confidence, assurance and direction.

Are we too quick to cry 'bully'?

Are we too quick to cry 'bully'? | Safety | Scoop.it
“ Some educators and researchers that the "bullying" has been overused and abused, watering down its true, very serious meaning.” Every parent, teacher and child knows the word: "bullying." But this month, as schools and communities launch fresh campaigns around National Bullying Prevention Month, some are urging more precise use of the B-word. "Bullying," some researchers say, has been misused and abused in the last few years -- too casually uttered about every hurt, slight and fight, too frequently used in place of "teasing" or "fighting," too often brought up before there's proof it happened. The very word, some say, has been bullied.

Effects of Bullying Last Into Adulthood, Study Finds

Effects of Bullying Last Into Adulthood, Study Finds | Safety | Scoop.it
Victims of bullying at school, and bullies themselves, are more likely to experience psychiatric problems in childhood, studies have shown. Now researchers have found that elevated risk of psychiatric trouble extends into adulthood, sometimes even a decade after the intimidation has ended. The new study, published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry on Wednesday, is the most comprehensive effort to date to establish the long-term consequences of childhood bullying, experts said.
