Stop the bullying Focus on the good, positive qualities in people

This week we look at Asset #12, School Boundaries. According to the Search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when school provides clear rules and consequences.”

As the school year ends, the administration is beginning to create a singular path to bullying prevention, as part of a state mandate.

School counselors, along with administration, curriculum and the prevention specialist are creating a plan that will kick off the 2009/2010 school year. The work will begin by training fifth through ninth grade students and blending into the lower and upper grades, as part of a year long process.

The fascinating thing throughout this process has not been just that bullying exists, but to the extent to which it exists. It should also be stated that this problem exists not just within the school boundaries, but outside of the school system as well.

If we start within the school system, we find traditional types of bullying situations that as kids we all experienced when growing up. Today however, it has evolved in a way we could never imagine.

Did you know that most school personnel would rather be in the middle of a boy fight instead of a girl fight?
