Bullying in Ishmael’s point of view

Bullying in Ishmael’s point of View:

Bullying is when someone keeps doing or saying things to have power over another person.
In my Point of view Some of the ways they bully other people are by: calling them names, saying or writing nasty things about them, leaving them out of activities, not talking to them, threatening them, making them feel uncomfortable or scared, taking or damaging their things, hitting or kicking them, or making them do things they don’t want to do.

There are many types of Bullying example:Physical bullying,verbal bullying, indirect bullying, social alienation, intimidation, and Cyberbullying.

physical contact that would hurt or injure a person like hitting, kicking, punching, etc………………………………….

Verbal Bullying: name-calling, making offensive remarks, or  joking about a person’s religion, gender,or the way they look.

Indirect Bullying:  spreading rumors or stories about someone, telling others about something that was told to you in private, and excluding others from groups.

Social Alienation:  when a bully excludes someone from a group on purpose. It also includes a bully spreading rumors, and also making fun of someone by pointing out their differences.

Intimidation: When a bully threatens someone else and frightens that person enough to make him or her do what the bully wants.

Cyber Bullying: Done by sending messages, pictures, or information using electronic media, computers (email & instant messages), or cell phones (text messaging & voicemail).

There are a lot of reasons why  people bully. They may see it as a way of being popular, or making themselves look tough and in charge or sometimes being cool. Some bullies do it to get attention or things, or to make other people afraid of them. Others might be jealous of the person they are bullying. They may be being bullied themselves.

 people think bullying is just part of growing up and a way for young people to learn to stick up for themselves. But sometimes bullying can make young people feel lonely, unhappy and frightened and also It makes them feel unsafe and think there must be something wrong with them.So they lose confidence and may not want to go to school any more. It may make them sick or put them in to a big problem.

 

 

info about coping with the bully.

Coping with bullying can be difficult, but remember, you are not the problem, the bully is. You have a right to feel safe and secure.
And if you’re different in some way, be proud of it! stand strong. Spend time with your friends – bullies hardly ever pick on people if they’re with others in a group.

If you see someone else being bullied you should always try to stop it. If you do nothing, you’re saying that bullying is okay with you.
It’s always best to treat others the way you would like to be treated.
You should show the bully that you think what they’re doing is stupid and mean. Help the person being bullied to tell an adult they can trust.
