AllergyAble's curator insight, June 18, 2013 6:06 PM

It's always disheartening when I see stories about children being bullied because of their food allergies - it's a big part of why allergyAble was created.  If you know of anyone being bullied because of their food allergies we'd love to hear your story and try to help.

This is so incredibly unfortunate. This could be fatal to the allergic child, not to mention the emotional damage it causes.

This article provides some statistical information. 

Shelby Hughes's curator insight, November 17, 2014 11:25 AM

Either we have all experienced online bullying or have seen our peers being attacked by an online bully. Did you say anything when you saw a cruel injustice? Did anyone stand up for you? Each and everyday there is a post or tweet directed to hurt someone; a passive-aggressive killer. 

The bystanders in this situation are those who see the abuse and choose to scroll passed it and not give aid to the individual (Myers, 2014) Studies show that the chances of the bystander effect decrease in a dangerous situation (Fischer, P., Krueger, J. I., Greitemeyer, T., Vogrincic, C., Kastenmüller, A., Frey, D., & ... Kainbacher, M. (2011). The bystander-effect: A meta-analytic review on bystander intervention in dangerous and non-dangerous emergencies. Psychological Bulletin, 137(4), 517-537. doi:10.1037/a0023304). It is suggested that it may be explained with the "Arousal- Cost Reward Model" Fischer, at el. 2011). So in a situation that there is no direct danger the chances of aid are diminished (Fischer at el. 2011). 

Online bullying is not a clearly recognized as a dangerous situation and it can therefor be inferred that there is a higher chance that the bystander effect will take place (Myers, 2014). This is in fact a dangerous situation as there is a higher rate of suicide and absence from school from those affected by online bullying (Holt, 2014). 

Will we simply stand by as others are being attacked by online bullying?
