The Effects Of Bullying And How To Prevent It
Bullying is where people are made to feel very uncomfortable in many different ways. There are many different types of bullying such as physical bullying, verbal bullying, mental bullying and cyber-bullying. Bullying is mostly common in schools. People are bullied for many different reasons and sometimes for no reason at all i.e. skin colour, hair colour, race, religions, clothes wear, family problem and many more. Bullying can also cause death and suicide.
13 year old girl called Morgan Musson was found in the bedroom by her mom after taking overdose of painkillers. Her family believe it was due to her height. She has started a new school after being bullied at her old school but the bullying never stopped. Her mother tried plenty of times to ask the schools help but she never received any help. An inquest into her death was opened and adjourned. Morgan’s school will not comment until the inquest has finished.
Owen Richards, age 14: “Bullying is the worst offence to anyone, I have experienced this and it was the most excruciating time of my life. I never told anybody about my experience in yr 7 or 8. Now I’m in yr 10 its stopped and my life is finally moving forward”.
Haikal Shafizal, age 14: “I think is a difficult topic to solve and many people around the world are affected by this”.
Here are some of our suggestions:
? Act more confident. If a person who bullies feels that they don't have any power over you, it takes the 'fun' out of it for them.
? Hang around with friends or an adult at times when you're most in danger of being bullied.
? Don't fight back. It can make the situation worse.
? Tell someone.
