Description of this Heartbreak



external image Anti-bullying-Banner3.png

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school-aged that
involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has
the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as
making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally,
and excluding someone from a group on purpose. Bullying is not cool, it's
something that needs to stop. It's not funny. If you see someone being
bullied you should go and stop the bully.

Why does this break your heart?


Bullying is one of the major concerns of children and even some adults around the world. Bullying has become so serious that it has pushed victims to attempt to commit suicide. Bullying is no joke because it can have fatal results. Come join me and help stop bullying.(Savan)
Bullying is a large concern because it usually consists of one person making someone feel small and because the bully acts like they know everything, the victim has an inkling of self-doubt in the back of their minds.(Nick)
Bullying is an emotional and physical violence that needs to be taken care of for good. If there were no bullies, everyone would have confidence in themselves which can change the world! (Lauren)
Bullying is growing more and more everyday. Children and teens struggle everyday in school and out of school, I want to make an effort to help end bullying! (McKinley)

Research and Facts About this Heartbreak

Facts

Warning Signs

"There are many warning signs that may indicate that someone is affected by bullying—either being bullied or bullying others. Recognizing the warning signs is an important first step in taking action against bullying. Not all children who are bullied or are bullying others ask for help.
It is important to talk with children who show signs of being bullied or bullying others. These warning signs can also point to other issues or problems, such as depression or substance abuse. Talking to the child can help identify the root of the problem."
(Stopbullying.gov, 2016)

Kids Who are Bullied

"Kids who are bullied can experience negative physical, school, and mental health issues. Kids who are bullied are more likely to experience:
  • Depression and anxiety, increased feelings of sadness and loneliness, changes in sleep and eating patterns, and loss of interest in activities they used to enjoy. These issues may persist into adulthood.
  • Health complaints
  • Decreased academic achievement—GPA and standardized test scores—and school participation. They are more likely to miss, skip, or drop out of school.
  • A very small number of bullied children might retaliate through extremely violent measures. In 12 of 15 school shooting cases in the 1990s, the shooters had a history of being bullied."
(Stopbullying.gov, 2016)

Risk Factors

"No single factor puts a child at risk of being bullied or bullying others. Bullying can happen anywhere—cities, suburbs, or rural towns. Depending on the environment, some groups—such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered (LGBT) youth, youth with disabilities, and socially isolated youth—may be at an increased risk of being bullied."
(Stopbullying.gov, 2016)

Effects of Cyber Bullying

Like all forms of bullying, cyberbullying causes psychological, emotional, and physical stress.
Each person’s response to being bullied is unique, but research has shown some general tendencies.
Youth who are bullied have a higher risk of depression and anxiety. (stopbullying.gov Sydney 3-3-16)
Symptoms may include:
  • increased feelings of sadness and loneliness
  • changes in sleep and eating patterns
  • loss of interest in activities
  • more health complaints
Youth who are bullied are more likely to struggle personally and at school. They may:
  • miss, skip or drop out of school
  • receive poor grades
  • have lower self-esteem
  • use alcohol and drugs
Bullying can lead to thoughts about suicide, sometimes persisting into adulthood. In one study, adults who were bullied as youth were three times more likely to have suicidal thoughts or inclinations.
Youth who are bullied may retaliate through violent measures. In 12 of 15 school shooting cases in the 1990s, the shooters had a history of bullying.

Effects of Verbal Bullying

Many victims of verbal bullying are affected in very real ways. Verbal Bullying can affect one’s self image, and affect someone in emotional and psychological ways. This type of bullying can lead to low self-esteem, as well as depression and other problems. It can aggravate problems that a victim may already be experiencing at home or in other places. In some cases, verbal bullying can reach a point where the victim is so depressed, and wants to escape so badly, that he or she may turn to substance abuse or – in some extreme cases – suicide. In the end, words have a power all their own, and the realities of verbal bullying can have very physical consequences, even if the aggressor never lays a finger on the victim.(bullyingstatistics.org Sydney/ 3-3-16)

Effects of Physical Bullying


Physical bullying can include harassment like name calling or stalking behaviors, and more violent abuses like hitting or intimidating. Sometimes groups of young adults will target and alienate a peer because of some adolescent prejudice. This can quickly lead to a situation where they are being taunted, tortured, and beat up from their fellow class mates. Physical Bullying can end tragically and therefore must be stopped immediately. (nobullying.com Sydney 3-3-16)
Here are some of the warning signs of physical bullying:
  • Coming home from school with bruises, cuts, or other unexplained injuries
  • Having damaged clothing, books, or possessions
  • Often “losing” things that they take to school
  • Complaining of frequently not feeling well before school or school activities
  • Skipping certain classes
  • Wanting to avoid going to school or going to school a certain way, such as taking strange routes home from school or not wanting to ride the bus
  • Acting sad or depressed
  • Withdrawing from others
  • Saying they feel picked on
  • Displaying low self esteem
  • Mood swings, including anger or sadness
  • Wanting to run away
  • Trying to take a weapon to school
  • Talking about suicide or violence against others
  • Depression

Why should other people care about this heartbreak?


Bullying is a serious issue in schools all across the world and it needs to be addressed. 30% of U.S. students in middle school are being bullied and it happens day after day. Often the people involved have been picked on before or have been in a tough situation. These people often become a bully because of the way they have been treated in the past. It is an endless cycle of hate! People who are bystanders are basically saying that they don't care or they don't want to get involved. Instead of watching someone getting beat up or put down, we should join in and stand up for them. Think about it, wouldn't you want someone to do that for you? We can work together to fix this heartbreak, and make the world a much more: peaceful, less violent, and more pleasant to live in.
This heartbreak should really be a major concern to the world because it is like a disease. One person sees one person bully another, and does the same. If we do not stop bullying now it will just grow into something bigger. Eventually it will be to late and bullying will be an extremely hard problem to tackle.
Additionally, bullying hinders miracles from happening to people who are bullied and those who encounter them. Someone who is bullied often times is treated so because they're a threat to the bully's talents. The bully's purpose is to hinder the person who they are bullying from exceeding them ,and frequently ,yet sadly the bully succeeds. This can stop the one who is being bullied from enjoying life and its miracles because they think they deserve less than what they truly do. A person who is bullied often times can do rather weird things. Others may judge them ,and that person who is being bullied will miss out on opportunities. Also, the one who judged them may miss out from witnessing that person's talent. Therefore bullying should be a major concern in society and many others should care about it because it solves two problems: bullying and discrimination.

(Sydney- WHS)Physical bullying is a serious problem, affecting not only the bully and the victim, but also the other students who witness the bullying. Parents, teachers, and other concerned adults and young people should be aware of what a physical bully is and some of the ways to handle it.Physical bullying can include harassment like name calling or stalking behaviors, and more violent abuses like hitting or intimidating. Sometimes groups of young adults will target and alienate a peer because of some adolescent prejudice. This can quickly lead to a situation where they are being taunted, tortured, and beat up from their fellow class mates. Physical Bullying can end tragically and therefore must be stopped immediately.
