What to do if you are being bullied at school - Dr Tracie O'Keefe ...

"If you are a young person being bullied at school, you might like to consider that the bullying might not be about you at all. You might just be an unfortunate choice that the bullying person or people see as an easy target. People who bully always look for easy targets. They would never challenge or try and dominate someone they consider as powerful or strong as themselves.But this doesn’t matter when you are experiencing bullying. You just want it to stop. You feel isolated and afraid. You just want to feel safe to carry on with your day, unimpeded by the violence or aggression. You may even consider hurting yourself but you can change things.

 

The following steps can help if you are being bullied at school:

 

1. Tell a trusted third party adult such as a teacher, head teacher, or parent. You do not have to go through this alone. There is strength in numbers and those people may be able to help you.

 

2. Ask for an intervention from a teacher, or head teacher so you can stay safe. You are entitled to be kept safe and it is the duty of an adult to ensure you are safe if you report that you are in trouble and being bullied.

 

3. Tell your parent/s or carer that you need their help. Many children are afraid to go home and tell the truth about what they might be experiencing at school. You may be embarrassed by not being able to defend yourself but with help, the situation could be changed.

 

4. There are probably laws or rules that protect you, so ask your school to help you find out what they are and how you can use them to protect yourself.

 

5. Find out if anyone else is experiencing the same or similar bullying at your school. If there are, have meetings with them and work out a plan to get help.

 

6. Find out if there is Pupils’ Charter at your school that is supposed to guide students not to bully. If there is none, make one up and circulate it to the whole school, including the head teacher, to ask for suggestions. Once it is collated and finalised, send it to the head teacher."

A Revolutionarily Simple Solution to Bullying | Brain World

A Revolutionarily Simple Solution to Bullying | Brain World | Bullyproof | Scoop.it

This article provides tips andinformation on how your child's mood or start of mind makes them more likely to be bullied or to bully someone else.

 

"A student’s propensity to bully, or fall prey to a bully, is 100 percent dependent on his or her state of mind at that moment. When an individual finds himself or herself in a high mood, the urge to bully—if it occurs at all—will come and go. But when an individual is in a low mood, he or she may look to bullying as the solution to unruly thoughts and feelings. Likewise, if you are in an elevated state of mind and become the target of a bully, the answers to overcoming the bully will become obvious. But if you are being bullied and in a low mental state, you are likely to feel quite vulnerable. Bullying is the result of a lack of understanding of how our perceptions of others are formed. Nothing more; nothing less."
