Anyone can be a bully

Anyone can be a bully | October is Bullying Prevention Month | Scoop.it

Julie Hertzog, the director of the Pacer National Bullying Prevention Center:

Today, it’s not quite as simple as that. Casting the bully as a physically intimidating outcast isn’t necessarily accurate, Hertzog said.

“There is no particular profile,” she said. “It used to be that people thought that kids who bullied had very low self-esteem, but we’ve found just the opposite to be true. A lot of times they are social leaders.”

In this situation, cyber bullying, I would stand up when if I get bullied on the internet. I agree with is articles information. Facebook is one of the largest social websites and is the most common place for cyber bullying. I truly believe that bullying face to face is the most common type of bullying. When people meet together, the bullys can make fun of your fashion or the way you look. While on the internet, it is more of a mental break down. I don't agree that one in ten parents know that their child is being cyber bullied because some parents check on their childs account and see if anything is ok and there is no cyber bullying.

I agree with you, Johnny. I'm pretty sure that more than "one in ten" parents know that their child has been cyber-bullied. Since tecnology is changing rapidly, maybe soon the only form of bullying will be cyber-bullying. The only thing I disagree about was that Facebook has the most cyber-bullying. I believe that the most cyber-bullying comes from text messages since the victims is the only one to read it. Standing up to the bully on the Internet is good, but not as good as standing up in real life. Also, any type of bullying is bad, and I think that all bullying is equally bad. I hope you enjoyed this article.
