briefly discuss different type of bullying? physical, verbal, cyber?
lead to thesis- who bullies target, health concerns of being bullied, routes to take for change.
Any suggestions on how I can start, and helping me break down on what I should write would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
This is my intro, any suggestions?
Everyday thousand of teens wake up terrified of attending school. About one in seven schools, a child is either a bully or a victim of bullying. Bullying is simply defined as a type of aggressive behavior that involves intent to cause harm and a power imbalance (Olweus, 1999). Bullying can range anywhere from psychological, physical (involving kicking and punching), verbal or cyber abuse. Today, we'll discuss what makes a victim a target of bullying, what are some of the health concerns and what are some possible routes for change.
My intro will be
Bullying has become a social disease which is spreading at an uncontrollable pace. The culture of bullying in schools and colleges shows the extent of its effect. It also reflects the bitter truth, That we are getting used to of this evil disease. It has not become an epidemic overnight its a slow process of social injustice from top to bottom. Its reflection of what we really are and where we are heading. Children adopts these norms from their elders, society, culture thus what ever they come in contact from day to day life dealings.
I tweak it a little, anyone can give any insight/inputs?
There is a significant social problem amongst teenagers. For many years, concerns about bullying and its connection to school violence and depression have brought upon a nationwide attention. However, nothing is being done because people are under the assertion that bullying is just a normal part of growing up. Bullying is simply defined as a type of aggressive behavior that involves intent to cause harm, occur repeatedly, and involves a power imbalance (Olweus, 1999). It can include psychological, physical (involving kicking and punching), verbal (name calling/teasing) or cyber abuse (internet bully). In my discussion, I'll briefly talk about what influence bullying behaviors, what are some long-term effects of being bullied and what are some possible routes for change?
This was another form of resentment and chauvinism; bullies just make it a hobby to piss off weak guys to their sight. This may not lead to physical but more on psychological aspect. Bullying, especially on grade school may affect the studies of the victim; they will be afraid to go to school. Also this may cause someone to be scared of people, to socialize and make friends.
