Emma Davis's curator insight, January 29, 2013 11:09 PM

This girl was turned on by her bestfriends, do you think that things like that would happen at our school? Most people say that bullying usually has to do with girls and their attitude towards others, do you agree with that? If you were this girl what would you have done in this situation? If those girls that bullied their friend ever decided that what they did was a bad thing and asked for forgiveness, would you accept that apology? 

Tejas Athni's comment, January 30, 2013 6:10 PM
I think “betrayal of best friends” happens at every school. At our school, though, the friendships are strong, and not many students dislike each other. Both girls and boys bully, but the girls usually tend to be more subtle. The boys tend to use more physical violence. If I was a girl in this situation, I would tell my parents what is going on and contact a teacher. I would accept the apology from the girls that were bullying me. This could lead to less bullying and a possible friendship.

I agree with you about the bullying differences between girls and guys, but I think there is s type of bullying at our school and only a few people notice it. I also agree with you about forgiving those girls, I would have forgiven them too.

Why telling bullying victims to "just fight back" doesn't work.
Tejas Athni's insight:

If you were bullied, would you fight back physically?  What could you do to stop bullying?  What are some reasons of bullying?  What could you do to lower the bullying rate before middle school and high school?  Is cyberbullying more, less, or equal to the harm caused by real life bullying?  What could you do to stop cyberbullying?

If i was physically bullied, i would most likely stay as far away as possible from that person, im not really sure what iw ould do in this situation. Im not the kind of person that physically hurts people when they make me mad so i would most likely not fight back. To stop bullying I would do everything I could to stick up for myself or the person that is getting bullied. The most likely reason that kids bully is because of insacuratity or jealous, and thats not a good way to be. There are also other situations where the the bully has a hard home life and they feel the need to take it out on kids who aren't as good as them.
Tejas Athni's comment, January 30, 2013 6:04 PM
I agree with your bullying reasons. A student bullies because he either has problems at home, he is jealous of the kid he is bullying, or he is picking on a kid weaker and smaller than him. Also, I think cyberbullying is more harmful than real life bullying. You can't identify the cyberbully, and he will keep picking on you without having to face consequences. I think you could have a bullying class or a frequent "lesson" in lower school before you get to middle and high school. This will notify younger kids about bullying and its consequences. I also am not a person who uses physical violence, so I thoroughly understand what you feel about fighting back.
Emma Davis's comment, January 30, 2013 7:18 PM
To stop bullying before middle or high school I would do anything I can to make sure someone is always there for the person that is getting bullied or to have someone to stop the bully. Cyber bullying is more the harm of real life bullying because people can say things to people that they would never say in person. If I were trying to stop cyber bullying I would delete the account or website that the bullying has happened on.

This story reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because both kids are bullied for being different. August is bullied for not looking "normal" and the boy in the movie is bullied for being smarter than "normal." People who join in on bullying are less likely to get bullied themselves. They can become friends with the bully and escape the torments of being a victim. In my opinion, parents are not very useful in preventing bullying. In most cases, kids don't want to tell their parents that they are being bullied, or they will sound like a snitch. The role that the kids play is much more crucialthan the parents. Obviously, your parents are going to stick up for you, but what you really need is for other kids to help you. If the bullies finds themselves out-numbered, they may back down.

This movie reminds me of Wonder because it is about a boy who is getting bullied because of his physical appearance. I think join bullies because they think that the bully is cool and knows if he's on the bully's side, then he won't be the next target. Parents can do speeches and assemblies to tell kids how to prevent bullying, but, at the end of the day, if a bully wants to hurt someone physically or emotionally, they will despite actions of adults. The role of adults is smaller because bullying usually occurs when adults are not around. Also, most adults don't really understand bullying because it is different now than it was when they were growing up. Parents can prevent bullying by making sure their kid isn't the bully and helping their kid. Kids can help by being nice to kids that get bullied a lot or telling their friend if they are bullying someone, because usually the bully doesn't even realize the extent of their bullying until later.

This trailer reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because of a couple different reasons. The first one, of course, is that he was bullied at school, but it also reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because he did not want to go to school because of the mean kids, which relates to August's excuse. I think that it would be tempting to join in on bullying because the bullies are usually the cool kids, so you feel like agreeing with the cool kids will make you cool. I think that parents play a big role in bullying because a victim of bullying to tell his mom or dad, without anyone knowing. I would think, and hope, that the bullys' parents do not want the children to bully, so if the bullied child's parents told the bully's parents, the bully would most likely get into trouble. However, a common reason for bullying is a lack of a family life, so in some cases, telling the bully's parents may not stop anything. I think that a parent's role in bullying is smaller than the child's, because the child has to stand up for himself at one point, and have the parents as a backup plan. If the child can learn to be strong and stand up for himself, he will eventually be strong enough to not be to hurt by bullying. THis will let the victim be able to overcome bullying completely, and the whole problem will be solved.
