YOU DON’T KNOW ME

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate or aggressively dominate others.

Children are bullied at school, on the playground, on the way home or to school, on school buses. They often hide it in fear of retaliation.  Children need to know that it’s okay to tell someone they trust. Fear keeps them a prisoner within themselves. They lose self-esteem, love for themselves, believing that they must deserve what the bully dishes out to them.  They often withdraw inside themselves, keeping to themselves, and sometimes thinking suicide is the only way out.

Kids who bully others use their power over someone either by physical strength, intimidation, using fear to control another.

As adults we must give children clear and consistent messages. Telling them how to  relate to another person in a positive and healthy way. Kids need to learn how to stand up for themselves and others. Fear keeps kids silent, Let’s speak up, help stamp out bullying.

  1. I was a bully between the age of 13 -14 I hurt someone and praise God I realized it was wrong and I stopped. When I was a little girl the abuse came at me from every direction physical emotional sexual verbal. I had a lot of anger The abuse continued in my teens. I would seek men that have the same abusive behaviors. Anyway I eventually got counseling and worked on my life but I believe somehow the parents should be responsible for bullying because that’s where it starts in the home in some cases. Schools that have parental board of directors should be allowed to monitor children’s behavior more during class hours because I believe behaviors will not be done if there are more adults supervising. Parents should also be more diligent with what their children are doing online cyber bullying is also very real

    • Thank you Judy for your comment. So true, parents need to be more responsible for bullying and do something about it. Children need guidance and rules to follow, and schools also have a responsibility in watching for signs of bullying.
