Jaheem's parents would treat at their children different after this death. They would treat them different because they lost their first born and stay more in touch with their lives. After this death, the school probably would do a lot more things to prevent bulling. He didn’t want his parents to help him with his social life because he didn’t think his family cared very much and wouldn’t help at all.

I agree with the part about that his parents would treat his sister differently. It is easily seen that his sister would be taken care of much more and give a big complaint to the school.

^Jaheem's parents would treat their children different after this death. They would treat his little sister with more care and be more in touch with her social life. Jaheem's parents wanted to help the bulling stop but all he thought it would do was cause more drama. The school would be effected by this because a young child hung himself from that school. The school would have more reasons to give a stop to bulling.

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.

Feeling Bullied by Parents About Weight

Feeling Bullied by Parents About Weight | Bullying and Anna’s Opinions | Scoop.it
Overweight children are routinely bullied at school, a study in Pediatrics reports, but many also feel bullied by parents, coaches and other trusted adults who think they are "only trying to help."
sloane ramsbottom's insight:

Imagine if one of your friends was struggling from overweight problems and was being bullied would you stick up for them? Do you think this article is sad or helpful? Who do you think this is written for?

Of course I would stick up to a friend being bullied about their weight. It isn't fun to watch your friend be bullied. I think this article does a good job of explaining the hardships that come from being bullied due to obesity. I think this article is both sad and helpful, as it explains how bullies aren't always kids, but can be close family members and people such as coaches. However, I think that parents should try and push their children to lose weight if they aren't a healthy size. If my son was overweight, I would put him on a diet and encourage him to exercise more so he could lose weight. Parents SHOULD encourage their children to lose weight, but in a supportive and practical manner, and not over-doing it.
sloane ramsbottom's comment, January 30, 2013 8:27 PM
I totally agree with Stephen. I would also try to push my kid to lose weight if she/he was bigger, but without overdoing it. There is one thing I would add that it is hard to stand up to a bully, especially if the bully is bigger than you. Over all the article was good information for bulling children and or adults with weight issues.

Ella Thomason's curator insight, January 24, 2013 11:22 PM

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. 

Carter Griffin's comment, January 25, 2013 7:51 AM
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.
