TaJuan Huiett's insight:

Another act of cyberbullying:  Twitter bullies must learn that with a voice comes responsibility. Twiiter is used to update followers on your personal life and beliefs. However, bullies enjoy using twiiter for a different reason. They send threats of rape, mutilation and death threat. In reality, the individuals are very say, possibly depressed. The purpose of sending threats is to seek out attention and gain popularity. They achieved the attention, however it came from the wrong people. This article disscusses how cyberbullying has led many to court. To point out the need of censorship. Although many negative things are shown everyday, there is good for every negative. The purpose of social networks is to give the sense of freedom of expression. Now that people have a voice online, they must realize that their voice has responsibilities as well.

Award Winning Essay on Bullying by Morgan Biggs

St. Anne's School of Annapolis
TaJuan Huiett's insight:

Morgan Biggs discusses on how bullying can have a negative impact on someone's life. When they reach their breaking point, they will either harm themselves or others. Bullying is used to thrive attention from their classmates; to make them feel more powerful and popular. Morgan takes about a group titled as the, "Peanut Gallery." The peanut gallery are the spectators who laugh out loud and snicker behind the victims back. They are the ones that make the bullying worse, until one of them steps up ceases to be just another bystander. In her school, they have an anti-bully campaign titled, "Bully Beatdown." The campaign is for students to come out and share their personal experiences with bullying. Inviting a pyschologist or counselour to give the students guidance on anti-bully tactics.

6 Essential R's to Reduce School-Wide Bullying

6 Essential R's to Reduce School-Wide Bullying | The Plague Known as Bullying | Scoop.it
The best way to reduce bullying is not with a one-time assembly or a poster campaign, but with homegrown, data-driven, sustained efforts by a caring, committed staff -- a model I call the six R's, a
TaJuan Huiett's insight:

The six R's: a bluepirnt for effective bullying prevention. This was to create a caring learning environment that breeds acceptance and respect.

1)"Replace" aggression with pro-social habits. Using a restorative justice approach (not peer mediation) to boost positive school and peer connections.

2) "Refuse" (which should be titled as 'Reduce'). Always provide necessary assitance to any victim. Refusal to aide anyone is the worst thing that can occur.

3) "Respond". Teach others speak up and respond upon the act of bullying. Encourage instructors to teach positive discipline, conflict resolution and social-emotional learning.

4) "Report". Break the "No Snitch" code. Teach the difference between snitching (getting peers in trouble when they're not doing anything harmful) and reporting (keeping peers out of trouble because they may get hurt). Encourage reporting.

5) "Recongnize". Educate others on what bulling is. Show powerpoints, give them books, espeically the youth. The youth are the most common to be blind to the act. Showing and telling them will help teach them the difference what is right and what is wrong.

6) "Rules". Establish an "Anti-bullying" policy. Establish tiered consequences for bullying, which consider students' ages, maturity, intent and frequency. Emphasize positive discipline approaches -- not zero tolerance.

Who Is Likely to Become a Bully, Victim or Both?

Who Is Likely to Become a Bully, Victim or Both? | The Plague Known as Bullying | Scoop.it

Children and adolescents who lack social problem-solving skills are more at risk of becoming bullies, victims or both than those who don’t have these difficulties.

TaJuan Huiett's insight:

Children and adolescents who lack social problem-solving skills are more at risk of becoming bullies, victims or both than those who don’t have these difficulties. It is stated that boys are more bullies than girls. Unfortunately, poor school perfomance skills indicate who may become bullies. They may also become bullied by those who excel in school perfomance skills. The bullies and victims are more likely to have trouble with social interactions and have negative views on society. The bully-victim impact can occur in four different areas: externalizing behavior, internalizng behavior, social competence, and academic performance. Age determines how the bully-victim acts out their aggression.Enforcing "anti-bullying" rules and peer-reporting of bullying incidents can help dissolve the problem in their community.

Bullying and Suicide - Bullying Statistics

There is a strong link between bullying and suicide, as suggested by recent bullying-related suicides in the US and other countries. Parents, teachers, and students learn the dangers of bullying and help students who may be at risk of committing suicide.
TaJuan Huiett's insight:

The purpose of statistics is to educate society on harmful bullying truly is. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt." Whoever said that was probably attempting to encourage someone that was being bullied. However, things change over time. Words are now more powerful than any physical damage. Bullying does not only occur in minors, but as well as adults. Such as in the work place. The "bullies" see it as amusement, until the "bullied" becomes a sociopath or deceased. 4,400 deaths are due to suicide; half of that is related to bullying,

TaJuan Huiett's insight:

School is the most common area for bullying to occur. Many stories are heard but none are having anything done with the situation. Being betrayed by those you thought you could call your friend. They are the ones who write and tape notes on your back. As well as the ones who start rumors about you just because they are jealous of you. Morals and ethics are primarily taught within the household, however the parents are the last to know about the situation. It occurs when there are no adults in sight. Create an anti-bullying enviorment by being an example of kindness and friendship. Learn the signs before it becomes too late. Also, teach your child to not just be a bystander; teach them to be helpful and humble.

Bullying - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bullying - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power.

TaJuan Huiett's insight:

What is bullying?

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual.

Bullying can occur due to wealth class, age, gender, religion, sexuality, appearance, personality, reputation, size, and ability. Due to their own insecurities, people choose to bully others in order to feel good for once. They become bullies in order to hide their fear of being bullied themselves. Being hazed because of your wealth class and apperance is the most often reason for being bullied in school. Bullying is shown by abuse; whether it is emotional, verbal, or physical. The act is either portrayed in person or through the internet (i.e. Cyber-bullying).  Since the year 2000, many organizations have been made to cease bullying. More than 30 out of 50 states in the US have made "cyber-bullying" a federal law.

Listen to world leading experts in the field of bullying, aggression and violence research – Professor Christina Salmivalli from Finland and Professor Donna Cross from Western Australia.
TaJuan Huiett's insight:

Bullying does not only affect America, but it is a plague known worldwide. The adolescences begin being bullied as early as the age of 8. Millions are affected, and approximately 50% will speak up upon their situation. More females than males ask for help. With males, our so called, "pride", is what keeps us from asking for help. Only 50% of those who speak up upon the situation actually say they feel better after discussing their experiences. 92% of the "bullies" admit that they were once bullied within the past three years. Bullying is not a gene that you are born with; it is taught. By witnessing the power it has, people use it as an advantage. The earlier the act of bullying is caught, the more likelyhood it is that the "victim" will not become a perpetrator.

Amanda Todd's Story: Struggling, Bullying, Suicide, Self Harm - YouTube

RIP Amanda Todd November 27, 1996- October 10, 2012 'My story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self harm' by Amanda Todd Note: This is not me. I have uploaded...
TaJuan Huiett's insight:

At the young age of 15 years old, Amanda Todd was deceased due to the act of bullying. As a typical teenager, she would go out with friends meeting new people. One day, she met a boy that continuously complimented her. As they had countless conversations, the boy asked for a nude picture of her. She wanted to keep it private between the two of them, and he said it would. A year later, her picture and identity is exposed thanks to the ungrateful gentleman. Friendships are lost, next came identity, then she indulged in drugs and alcohol. When the pain became to great, she took her life. People are pure ignorant on how much mental and emotional abuse bullying can truly cause. This plague won't cease until there is no one else to bully.
