Nice is Trending on Twitter: School's Football Captain Beats Cyber Bullies With Kindness Tweets

Nice is Trending on Twitter: School's Football Captain Beats Cyber Bullies With Kindness Tweets | Bullying on cyberspace | Scoop.it

When he saw classmates taunted on Twitter, 17-year-old Kevin Curwick, a high school football captain, decided that online bullying should not be a spectator sport for his Minnesota town.

So he quietly set up a Twitter account, @OsseoNiceThings, to praise students in need of a social facelift.

"She is so good at dancing, she gets more scholarships than D1 athletes," he tweeted about a girl who was attacked by an anonymous account.

Curwick says since the @OsseoNiceThings page started on July 29, the Twitter posts attacking his classmates have disappeared.

I really liked your video and insight talking about Amanda Todd and her story. Connecting it to inclusion which we talked about in class and how we should include others more often was interesting. I like how you said she needs someone to talk to and someone to include her and comfort her. All she needs is a good friend. You did mention that you think if they gave her more attention she might feel better but I think she already has a lot of attention, it's just the wrong kind. Amanda has even gained more followers and attention on Facebook because of what that person posted. However, I think she could really use some good positive attention. Like you said, if a good friend or close family member had talked to her and comforted her she would have received the right attention and had someone she could trust. Then maybe she would have felt included and perhaps begin to experience some happiness which might have changed her life.

Amanda Todd made cyberbullying a big deal after her death. I didn't know about cyberbullying until my mom made me watch the video it really scared me, someone had to die to get this type of bullying noticed. I really like in the video how she told the complete truth about everything. She wanted people to know exactly what they were doing to her. I like how Mitchel related Amanda Todd to inclusion. For one wrong thing she did everyone excluded her. She kept on trying to learn from her mistakes but when people put you down and take away all hope of you ever learning, you give up. Mitchel wrote that people could have helped her by giving her the attention she needed but I think her parents were trying to help her by moving around alot and trying to keep a positive mind. She probably tried talking to her parents but it is really hard to find someone that can understand what you're going through because it is not them that's in the middle of all of it. It is very true that we have to be cautious of what we are saying on the Internet we could hurt people and not even know it. If I ever met her before she died I would say high school only last four years. If you keep running away you will seem weak so tell yourself you can do it and stand up to all the people who are bullying you because when school ends so does the bullying. I really don't know if that would help but at least I tried. In our world people are really cruel I think we need to take bullying as seriously as drunk driving or drugs for people to understand.

I agree with you. Amanda Todd was bullied in almost every way possible, such as cyber bullying, verbal and physical. The amount of bullying and number of times she tried to solve the problem by moving schools and cities and eventually committing suicide is very serious. I think more people should be more aware bullying. Many people do not know how serious bullying is to victims. I like your explanation that inclusion could solve bullying, which it could in some circumstances, but I think showing what the effects of bullying may be able to stop bullying in the future. I agree that the video is about treating others the way you would like to be treated, but I think you also could have added that she wants to show bullying is more serious that it may seem. Bullying is a very serious matter and I think this video shows that very well along with Mitchel Coelho's response.

Parents ignore the fact that their children may be cyber bullies | Adelaide Now

Parents ignore the fact that their children may be cyber bullies | Adelaide Now | Bullying on cyberspace | Scoop.it

A survey of 1500 parents, conducted by Vodafone as part of its national anti-bullying campaign, found not one mum or dad believed their child had ever harassed someone else.

Focusing on cyber bullying, the survey also found the parental supervision of children's internet activity steadily declined as the latter reached their teens - the time during which online intimidation reaches its peak. http://bit.ly/fFZaTJ)

Empathy work lost on one in five cyber bullies

Empathy work lost on one in five cyber bullies | Bullying on cyberspace | Scoop.it

TACTICS commonly used by schools to deal with cyber bullies, such as asking them to show empathy towards their victim, are ineffective in dealing with some of the worst offenders, new research has found.


Despite the millions of dollars spent on programs to stamp out cyber bullying in schools, no research has been conducted to assess whether they are successful

Stephanie Nicole's curator insight, December 9, 2014 4:52 PM

Childhood bullying can generate long-term consequences, such as depression, health issues, behavioral problems, drug abuse etc. When children are bullied, I believe they are being pushed to their limits and beyond. Victims of bullying look to escape the violence and harassment, so they find an outlet such as drugs. Bullying changes a young one's life because they do not feel that they have any support to lean on. The victim is no longer in control when they are being harassed, so negative changes become natural for the child. The only way to prevent these long-term consequences from happening is to ignore the bullying and tell someone immediately because one person cannot handle a serious situation such as bullying.
