Chalk Talk: The Dynamics of Bullying
Bullying has become such a popular occurrence that there has been studies done to gain a better understanding about why it happens and how we can end it. It appears that bullying has three components: the victim, the bully, and the bystander. All three are equally responsible for keeping the fires of bullying burning brightly. The victim can stand up for him or herself or report the incident. The bully can find a more appropriate way to deal with his or her emotions. The bystander can speak up and become involved in stopping the problem as well. Schools nationwide have launched anti-bullying programs to address this issue by acknowledging it exists, investigating individual cases that are reported, and resolving problems before they escalate out of control. Some children television programming and infomercials are even showing skits about it. Parents are invited to join others in this mission. Check out your child’s school, the local library or the Internet to gather more information and find how you can help.
