How to prevent bullying? Is teaching empathy the answer?

How to prevent bullying? Is teaching empathy the answer? | bullying | Scoop.it

Teaching empathy is better than other ways to prevent bullying, says researchers. Children are less likely to bully others if they are empathetic.

 

Children are less likely to pick on their peers if they know the extent that the damage they have done, can go to. Experts also back up this prevailing wisdom. But kids are not born empathetic. They are susceptible to impulses.


Trying to tame bullies by teaching them empathy is one of the most effective ways to prevent bullying. But experts also suggest that teaching empathy may have the opposite effect on children.

Is Empathy the Solution to Bullying?

Ray Kang's curator insight, July 16, 2014 6:58 AM

According to the article, immigrant students are being bullied and teased. I feel so sorry for these students as they need to bear such suffering at a young age. I think this is not only the local children's problem, but is also their parents' problem as their actions have influence their children. I think in order to solve this problem, community should take part to educate not only the children but also the adults to be role model to be friendly towards the foreigners.

Natasha Ho's curator insight, July 18, 2014 10:47 AM

From this article, I can tell that those who have been bullied because of their races have been affected and impacted very negatively. The students who were muslims were often regarded as the terrorists. Even if some students are UK born, they were also told to pack up and return to where they belonged. I feel that these children should not be bullied based on their races. It is really disappointing to know that students were not made better felt but sometimes even being ignored when they raise their issues of being bullied. I personally feel that racism should not carry on any further as it can affect someone emotionally and the consequences might not be what it seem as minor. Also, I feel that the bullies should put themselves in the victim’s shoes and spare a thought for their friend’s feelings. Everyone should be more sensitive towards this subject of racism and they should always think before making any remarks.

I feel that this is a real time event many would have encountered. I am saddened that this is happening in schools, not by adults, but by children, where those who are of different skin tone or sound different with an accent, would be isolated from the rest. The fact that it started with them learning the wrong things from their surroundings would also play a big part in their lives in the future.

Understanding, Preventing and Dealing with Bullying Today

Understanding, Preventing and Dealing with Bullying Today | 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.
