Bullying cries for community attention

-A A +A

Ours is not the perfect little town. For all the amazing reasons that make this a great place to raise kids, we must not disregard that there is bullying in our schools.
Bullying is a form of aggression in which one or more children intentionally intimidate, harass or harm another child who is perceived as being unable to defend himself.
There is the aggressor, the victim and the bystander. The bully usually comes from an unfortunate place that is often chaotic with poorly set boundaries and expectations. The bully is unhappy about something or does not know how to get along with other kids.
Which kids tend to become the victims? Patterns of bullying are similarly described in various countries. The bully begins the school year by picking on many children, but those whose emotional responses gratify the bully’s needs will become the chosen victims for the rest of the year.
Among boys, the victims are generally smaller or weaker and among girls, the victims are often more socially isolated than the bullies.
Recent epidemiological studies conducted by the NIH indicate that among U.S. sixth-10th graders 30 percent are either being bullied or are doing the bullying.
