In a recent interview with Oprah Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas said that being bullied almost made her give up gymnastics!

One of the most common effects of bullying is that victims will give up on what they love. This is an example of that. What’s amazing though is how she was able to overcome being bullied to do something incredible. (more…)

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…)

Most Anti-bullying Programs Don’t Work! (Here’s What to Do About It!)

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Picture of depressed girl leaning against a gray cement wall.

A while back we did a post on why we take a different approach to anti-bullying assemblies.

Most presentations try to “scare the kids straight”. They hammer on the harmful effects of bullying and try to create change by making everyone feel miserable.

We’ve been skeptical of this approach from day one. We believe it makes a bad situation worse.

There was a peer reviewed article published on this back in October 2011. It’s cited at the end of this post. Here are a few crucial bits that I feel are relevant. (more…)

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…)

 

Study Reports More Girls than Boys Cyberbullied

Girl on Computer

The study cited in this article is in regards to the UK, but I still feel the results are interesting anyway:

The study found that while 22% girls had been subjected to cyber-bullying, 13.5% boys said they had faced it, according to the report.

While both boys and girls are getting cyberbullied, I think that the 8.5% increase with girls is significant.
