Have you ever been bullied?

Or maybe you were a bully?

Bullying has likely been around since the start of human existence. It basically is taking power off someone and giving it to someone else. I am sure everyone has seen bullying in action. Bullying even happens in the animal kingdom!

I was bullied during the first year of high school and I remember the feeling of helplessness. I remember feeling scared and anxious every day going to school. I also experienced bullying in my working life, but at least at work, you can sometimes have more control over the situation. In school, it is slightly different.

This week’s article explains what bullying is, why a kid may become a bully, 6 ways to deal with bullying, and how to prevent it in the future.

6 Ways to Deal with bullying

What Is Bullying?

Bullying is a type of aggressive behaviour in which someone intentionally and repeatedly causes another person physical or emotional harm. Bullying can happen at any age but it is most common in schools. It may take place in person or online. Bullies often target people who are different from them, such as those with disabilities or other visible differences, those with less money and social status, those who are overweight, and those who wear glasses. Bullying can also lead to mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.

    What Causes Kids To Become Bullies?

    There are many different reasons why kids bully others, but generally they are looking for some sort of power or control over others. It can be difficult to understand why kids bully each other, but there are some factors that can contribute to a child being bullied.


    Bullying is often seen as a rite of passage or as an activity that builds character. Some people believe that bullying will teach the victim how to deal with others in the future, while others believe that it will make the victim stronger and more confident.
    There are many reasons why kids bully other children, including:


    - They may have been bullied themselves
    - They may have been teased about something for a long time and then eventually lash out at someone else
    - They may feel like they don't fit in with their friends or classmates
    - They may have a difficult home life and want to find power in being superior

      6 Ways To Deal With Bullying

      1. Be Assertive

      When you are in the presence of a bully, it is important to be assertive. Let them know that you don't like their behaviour and that it is not acceptable.

      2. Get Help

      Get help from a teacher or counselor: If the bullying continues, get help from a teacher or counselor. They can talk to the bully and try to find out why they are behaving in this way.

      3. Ignore Them

      Sometimes ignoring bullies can be the best way of dealing with them as they will eventually stop bothering you if they know that their behaviour is not having an effect on you.

      4. Tell An Adult

      It's important to tell an adult if someone is bullying you as they will be able to help more than a friend would be able to do so because adults are not emotionally involved in the situation.

      5. Keep A Journal

      A journal is a great way to keep track of the bully's behaviour and contact information. Journaling can help you remember the details of the incident, which will be important if you need to take any action.

      A journal is also a good way to document your child's feelings about being bullied. It may be difficult for children to express their feelings verbally, but they may be able to write them down on paper.

      6. Go For a Walk or Take Time Away

      Sometimes taking a walk or doing something else instead of sitting still can help. This is because it takes your mind off the problem and allows you to think about it from a different perspective.

      How Can Your Prevent Bullying in the Future

      Bullying is a huge issue that affects every age group and it is not going away anytime soon. But there are some things you can do to try to prevent bullying from happening in the future.

      You can start by teaching your children about what bullying is and how it affects people. You should also teach them the difference between teasing and bullying and how to deal with it if they are being bullied.

      You should also try to be aware of any signs that your child might be being bullied, such as changes in their behaviour or mood, or a change in their friends.

      The more you talk about bullying prevention tactics with your children, the more likely they will be able to identify when someone is bullying them and know how to respond appropriately.

      Conclusion

      Bullying is something that we all have to deal with at some point in our lives. And it doesn't matter if you're a child in primary school, a teenager in high school, or an adult. Bullying is not just about one person being mean to another person. It can also be about how people talk about other people. Sometimes the bullying is done through social media or texting instead of face to face. A lot of schools have anti-bullying programs to help both the victim and the bully. It is important to keep open communication with our kids so we can catch bullying before it escalates and causes future harm.
