Natalie I really liked some of your ideas. The banning a person from a site idea, was really clever. I never thought of it before. Also I totally agree with you, that everyone is created, and should be treated equal.
Natalie Cundiff's comment, January 30, 2013 8:48 PM
I agree and also am disappointed with ignorant people but I'd rather not argue with them due to the fact that I know that they will never listen nor will they ever agree just in spite of you being right.

Natalie Cundiff's insight:

To be quite honest i don't blame her for not signing that card. He was awful to her and I know that there must have been some family issues and that he was mad and searching for a way to express his anger, but calling her the fatest girl in America, throughing a dead bird at her, and making up a rumor is no way to express your anger. Although, a lady should always be kind and respectful if anyone had the right not to sign the card it would be her.

Addy Hricik's comment, January 24, 2013 2:16 PM
The narrator isn't rude for not signing the card, but the narrator not signing the card shows that Billy hurt her feelings enough for her not to sign the card. It also tells you that she felt no sympathy for those who had shown none for her. I would sign the card because I would feel bad about for him losing his mother. But, a card couldn’t save his cruel personality, only he could change that. It sounds like a very realistic story because children are insensitive towards others who are obese, and often feel as if they should be bullied.
Carlin Weinberg's curator insight, January 24, 2013 4:47 PM

This story seems realistic, yet not. It is realistic beacuse of the actions of the kids. For instance, you might not sign the card if you hate someone. It is not realistic because I don't think kids would play with dead birds.

Jake Jamison's curator insight, January 24, 2013 8:42 PM

The card is for your "deepest sympathies" for Billy and his family. Dorothy pauses for a minute because Billy had been so mean to her, and then doesn't put anything. I think I would of been the same as Dorothy because he had been so mean to her. I would think this is a true story. My reasoning is that here is your usual bullying. Billy calls her names and then Dorothy doesn't do anything. Then you have Dorothy who returns the bullying when she doesn't sign the card. I would think many victims of bullying would try to bully the bully back.

Her You Tube video started out innocently enough. The Canadian teen held a stack of cards each one filled with messages in black marker.

Bully Official Trailer #1 - Weinstein Company Movie (2012) HD This year, over 5 million American kids will be bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home,...
Natalie Cundiff's insight:

this book reminds me of wonder because they are picking on this poor inisent boy for being diffrent, for not being exactly like them, and because he was somewhat of an easy target.


i feel the reason why kids are tempted to join in with bulying is for the social status it's almost like upgrading your phone and in the moment your trying to be cool and not make yourself the next target i feel as though it is somewhat of a pressure ordeal.


i feel as though parents cant do all that much, i mean they can alert other adults but that is about it because they can't just go everywhere you go and tell kids be nice to their precouse babies, but they do what they can and sometimes that's just not enough.


when it comes to bullying prevention grown ups have a bigger part because if only one kid stands up for another child they also becaome the target for bullying it's almost like they also get put in the hot seat


parents and children prevent bullying in difrent ways for instance

child: stands up for the kid but wont tell an adult

parent: tells other adults and its somewhat like the parents are the bull from the analagie mess with the bull you get the horns.

Mark Barrow's comment, January 24, 2013 2:08 PM
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.
Amelia Kate Foulkes's comment, January 24, 2013 10:47 PM
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.
