What is Bullying?
Bullying is any hurtful behavior that is intentional, repetitive, and ongoing. It can involve physical abuse, verbal abuse, threatening behavior, or social humiliation.
What is Cyber-bullying?
Bullying has long been a social ill in our society which only fairly recently has been taken seriously. Since the Internet and mobile Web have become a part of our lives, bullies have brought bullying into these areas as well. Commonly called “cyber-bullying,” bullying by electronic communication is a serious, yet often dismissed problem. However, it is no less damaging than traditional bullying; in fact, it may be worse.
• 1 out of 4 kids is bullied.
• 1 out of 5 kids admit to being a bully, or doing some bullying.
• A daily average of 160,000 children miss school because they fear they will be bullied if they attend classes.
• On average, 282,000 students are physically attacked by a bully each month.
• Every 7 minutes, a child is bullied on a school playground, with more than 85% of those instances occurring without any intervention.
• 95-100% of teens regularly access the Internet
• 85-90% of parents think they are knowledgeable about their children’s online lives
• 70-75% of teens say parents stop checking at about 14 years old
• 65-70% say friends sharing private pictures is a problem
• 60-65% say parents know nothing about what they do online
• 55-60% do not tell parents when they are bullied online
• 40-45% say they knowingly give out personal information online
• 30-35% have or are willing to meet “online friends” in real life
What can Parents do?
It is my belief that bullying will never go away. I believe the true answer to the bullying issue is to instill self-confidence in our children. It is a fact that bullies often target people
they can easily intimidate. When we teach our children how to face situations with self-confidence, they are less likely to be the victim of bullying. After all, self-confidence has applications far
beyond dealing with a schoolyard bully. In fact, life is full of situations that demand self-confidence:
• Job Interviews
• First Dates
• Marriage Proposals
• Meeting the In-laws
• Public Presentations
• Making Friends
• playing sports
• and much more . . .
