Children should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.
“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.”
Bullying is perhaps the single most destructive experience we’ve all come in contact with. Most are confronted with bullying during childhood and youth. However, bullying isn’t limited to a person’s early years. Instead, it can also confront you in the form of workplace bullying much later in life. No matter where a person comes in touch with bullying, it is always soul crushing. Sadly enough, being a victim of bullying is never a pleasant experience. It can completely destroy your self-esteem and may suck the happiness out of you. Not knowing if and when the next attack against you will be launched can leave you feeling entirely helpless.
Bullying can have a truly devastating effect on your life but it doesn’t have to be this way. Luckily, there’s a lot you can do to finally draw a line to tell those who are bullying you that enough is enough.
Stop Bullying on the Spot
When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time.
Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.
Prevention: Teach kids how to identify bullying and how to stand up to it safely.
