Title: BULLYING OR NOT BULLYING?


1
BULLYING OR NOT BULLYING?
  • What do YOU think?

2
TRUE or FALSE?
  • Bullying behavior is a normal part of growing up.
    Most bullies stop by the time they reach middle
    school.

3
FALSE!
  • Research indicates that children who bully
    unchallenged in elementary school will continue
    to bully in middle school.
  • In addition, children who were identified as
    bullies in middle school were four times as
    likely as their non-bullying peers to have more
    than one criminal conviction by the age of 24.

4
TRUE or FALSE?
  • Boys are more likely to engage in physical
    bullying such as hitting or punching.

5
TRUE!
  • However, both boys and girls can bully.
  • Verbal bullying is most common.
  • Girls are more likely to bully through teasing,
    name-calling, or social exclusion.
  • Both boys and girls have recently begun
    cyber-bullying others.

6
TRUE or FALSE?
  • Children who bully are loners.

7
FALSE!
  • Research indicates that bullies have an easier
    time making friends than children who do not
    bully.
  • They usually have a small group of friends who
    support or encourage their bullying behavior.

8
TRUE or FALSE?
  • Children who bully have high self-esteem.

9
TRUE!
  • Research says that bullies have average or even
    above-average self-esteem.

10
TRUE or FALSE?
  • The best way to address bullying problems is
    through conflict resolution or peer mediation.

11
FALSE!
  • Bullying is a form of victimization, not
    conflict. The bully operates from a position of
    strength in this imbalance of power.
  • The message is not that both children are partly
    right, but that the bullying is wrong and no one
    should have to put up with it.

12
DEFINITION
  • Bullying is aggressive behavior that
  • creates a perceived imbalance of power or
    strength,
  • is intentional, and
  • is repeated over time.

13
Warning Signs Is your child being bullied?
  • Does your child come home with torn, damaged
    clothing or other belongings?

14
Warning Signs
  • Does your child seem afraid of going to
    school, riding the bus, or participating in
    organized activities with others?

15
Warning Signs
  • Has your child lost interest in school work or
    suddenly begun to lose interest in school?

16
Warning Signs
  • Does your child appear sad, moody, or
    depressed?

17
Warning Signs
  • Does your child complain of physical ailments
    such as headache or stomach ache?

18
Warning Signs
  • Does your child have trouble sleeping or
    frequent bad dreams?

19
What do you think you should you do if your child
is being bullied?
  • A. Tell your child to ignore the bully, and she
    will probably stop.
  • B. Tell your child to physically retaliate
    against the bully.
  • C. Ask your child what he did to provoke the
    bullying and encourage him to change that
    behavior.
  • D. Contact the parents of the student(s) who
    bullied your child.
  • E. Listen carefully to how your child describes
    what happened and ask the child what can be done
    to help.

20
A. Tell your child to ignore the bully, and she
will probably stop.
  • No!
  • Ignoring the bully allows the situation to
    become more serious!

21
B. Tell your child to physically retaliate
against the bully.
  • No! Fighting back escalates the situation and
    could result in more serious physical injury,
    suspension, and/or expulsion.

22
C. Ask your child what he did to provoke the
bullying and encourage him to change that
behavior.
  • No! Dont blame your child! Keep your emotions
    under control as you try to find out exactly what
    happened.

23
D. Contact the parents of the student(s) who
bullied your child.
  • No!
  • Although this may be your first reaction it is
    best to let school officials contact the parents
    of the child or children who bullied.

24
E. Listen carefully to how your child describes
what happened and ask the child what can be done
to help.
  • YES! This is the correct action to take when you
    are trying to determine if and how your child has
    been bullied.

25
If you do suspect bullying, then
  • Keep the lines of communication open with your
    child, and
  • Talk with your childs teacher to see if she has
    noticed anything.

26
BYSTANDERS What can other students do if they
see someone being bullied?
  • SAY
  • SOMETHING!
  • If you feel safe, tell the bully that you dont
    like what the person is doing and it isnt funny.

27
BYSTANDERS What can other students do if they
see someone being bullied?
  • Dont bully back.
  • This could make it worse, and all of you can get
    in trouble.

28
BYSTANDERS What can other students do if they
see someone being bullied?
  • Be a friend to the person being bullied.

29
BYSTANDERS What can other students do if they
