Educators Miss Around 96% of Bullying Incidents

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Surprised? Don’t be.

This info comes from an article published late last year in Educational Leadership (citation below). From the article…

Educators can easily get the false impression that bullying is not a problem in their school. That’s because teachers and administrators typically see only about 4 percent of bullying incidents.

The bullying problem is a lot bigger than we realize. Why is so little of it observed? Why don’t we see it happening? (more…)


What You Don’t Know About Peers and Bullying!

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

What do you think of when you imagine a bully?

Usually it’s a kid who’s an outcast. Nobody likes them. They’re either a loner or they hang out with other bullies. They bully either because they don’t know how to control themselves or because they want to gain social status.

That’s definitely one kind of bully, but there’s also a second who’s more subtle and more dangerous. (more…)

Presidential Seal

Last week I posted about the Facebook Live Chat the White House initiated about Bullying. There was a council of experts there from the government, Facebook, and even MTV.

I took detailed notes of the entire chat. Here’s a digest of what I thought was really interesting and wanted to pass along to you!


Types of Bullying: Cyberbullying

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Computer Lab

We’ve been discussing various types of bullying in this series. There are many different tactics bullies use. It’s limited only by the bullie’s imagination.

We’ve covered some of the most common types of bullying, but I’d like to close out the series with the one most commonly covered in the news.


This is any type of bullying that happens online. It could be via text mesages, blogs, social networking websites, instant messages, e-mails, and more.


Types of Bullying: Threats

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Man clenching fist.

We’ve been discussing various types of bullying. Today we’re discussing a very serious tactic: Threats.

This overt type of bullying is one of the scariest for the target to endure.

The bully usually threatens to use one of the other tactics we’ve already talked about.

This makes threats a unique type of bullying. The bully doesn’t have to actually use the other tactics. They control their targets with the possibility.


Types of Bullying: Name Calling

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

A rose by any other name smells just as sweet!

There are many types of bullying. Through this series we’ve been exploring them.

Today we’re discussing: Name Calling.

We’ve all been called names at one point or another in our lives. Some of mine growing up were:

  • Fat Matt
  • Fatso
  • Fattie Fat Fat
  • Big Butt
  • Jumbo Jones

…And a whole host of others that involve vulgarity, so I’m going to not post them.

The thing is that “just ignore it” isn’t a viable solution to the problem. Most people don’t understand the true power of a name.


Types of Bullying: Teasing

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Two men laughing!

Let’s get this out of the way up front. Not all teasing is bad. We’ve all teased or been teased. It’s not necessarily bullying.

Teasing is a part of the bonding process for families and friends. It’s a part of flirting. It’s often completely good natured and harmless.

If everyone including the person getting teased laughs, smiles, and truly finds it funny, it’s not a problem.

Where it becomes a type of bullying is when it crosses the line. Let’s revisit our definition of bullying:

“Bullying happens when one person hurts or scares another person on purpose.”


Types of Bullying: Exclusion

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

No Entry Sign, Representing Exclusion. One of the many types of bullying.

In this series of blog posts we’re exploring different types of bullying. By learning the tactics that bullies use, we’re better prepared to identify bullying behavior.

Today, we’re looking at a particularly sneaky type of bullying: Exclusion.

Put simply, a bully uses exclusion to make their target an outcast. Not only is the target excluded from the bully’s own social circle, but they use their influence to make sure the target is excluded from other’s social circles as well.


Types of Bullying: Rumors

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Picture of Gossip and Rumors in heart.

We’ve been discussing the various types of bullying. Understanding the tactics bullies use enables us to identify bullying behavior when it happens.

The type of bullying we’re discussing today is: Rumors.

Rumors are a fact of life. People talk. Eleanor Roosevelt once said:

“Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.”

So long as there are people in this world with small minds, there will be rumors. If there is one subject people love talking about, it’s each other.
