Bullying: What can we do about it?

Bullying  by Angelina.

We say NO! to Bullying…………….

Bullying is a type of action or behaviour that someone does to another person to make them unhappy.  It is cruel and can happen almost anywhere to almost anybody.

Bullying is damaging for everyone.  It hurts not just the victim but it is also bad for the bully him or herself.  Bullies are often people who don’t feel very good about themselves so they bully other people to get more power.
For example someone who is bullied when they are a kid can be sad as an adult.  It leads to depression and anxiety which can last for the whole of a person’s life.  Dr. Mark Dombeck an expert on bullying says that:
Bullying Causes Long-Term Emotional Damage
The experience of being bullied can end up causing lasting damage to victims. This is both self-evident, and also supported by an increasing body of research. It is not necessary to be physically harmed in order to suffer lasting harm. Words and gestures are quite enough. In fact, the old saying, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never harm me" is more or less exactly backwards. For the most part, physical damage sustained in a fist fight heals readily, especially damage that is sustained during the resilient childhood years. What is far more difficult to mend is the primary wound that bullying victims suffer which is damage to their self-concepts; to their identities. Bullying is an attempt to instill fear and self-loathing. Being the repetitive target of bullying damages your ability to view yourself as a desirable, capable and effective individual.

Bullying needs to be dealt with by everyone.  For example, if you are in a bad situation you could stand up to the bully and say STOP IT I DON'T LIKE IT!

Bullying can affect adults that are either a boy or a girl and it's very upsetting. There is a type of bullying  that is called family violence. Adults can be bullied in their workplaces by ether the boss or other work people and these workplaces can be either at building sites, schools and offices’s and thats about it.  

Bullying needs to be dealt with in a strong and powerful way.  It can be very bad when a bully bullies you cuz you don't know what to do but there are lots of things you can do to stop it for example, say you were getting bullied and you started to ignore them you would see they would get bored and go away.

Tips for preventing bullying
. ignore them

. stand up to them and tell them to stop

. tell a trusted adult

Bullying can be a painful and upsetting thing but you can prevent it by standing up to the bully. Try it for yourself and you'll be ok.

This is an example of report writing on the topic of bullying. Well done Angelina!
