 School bullying

School bullying is a type of bullying that takes place in an educational setting. Sometimes this bullying can be physical, verbal or social. This type of bullying is direct to the victims which means they bully them to their face. School bullying is the most common type of bullying. It can affect people with differences. An example is…..a kid was a walking to school, a bully walks up and starts shoving him but the kid does nothing. Other bystanders join in laughing, but still the kid does nothing. This is an example of one sided bullying.


Physical Bullying

   Physical bullying is a serious problem. It affects not only the bully and the victim, but the witnesses who watch. Physical bullying is when someone hits or physically hurts someone. Physical bullying can take many forms such as hitting, pushing, tripping, slapping, spitting, punching, kicking, stealing, or destroying possessions...so many actions can be named but those are just a few. An example of physical bullying would be if someone was at school and someone kicked them and punched them every day.

Verbal bullying

Verbal bullying is constant non-constructive criticism. The meaning of verbal bullying is when a person uses verbal language to gain power over his or her classmate..

Verbal bullying can be teasing, swearing, and criticizing. An example of verbal bullying is when someone is on the bus and someone else starts teasing the person.

Social bullying

Social bullying is trying to get a person away from their friends, leaving someone out on purpose, telling other people not to be friends with that person, spreading rumors about someone or embarrassing someone on purpose. An example of this is a person asking if they could play. Then the other kids start whispering to each other and start gossiping then they say no. This is a very powerful form of bullying.

Facts about bystanders

    Now lets talk about bystanders. A bystanders is someone who watches someone be bullied and doesn't do anything. If there are more bystanders, the less likely it is that one of them will step in to help.

Be an upstander


    An upstander is someone who watches the bullying, but does something to help the victim too. They will either stand up for the victim, tell a trusted adult, or tell the victim to do something like walk away. You should be an upstander too. It helps people in a lot of pain. You don't have to be friends with them. But at least help them. They could have suicidal thoughts because of bullying. And you could be the one to save their life.

Any young readers or children that are being bullied, PLEASE talk to someone. An adult you trust, a friend you trust, a relative you trust. You should not have to go through this pain because of who you are.

Bullying, and How to Stop It.

Alisa K.

    “Knowing what's right doesn't mean much unless you do what's right.”

       -Theodore Roosevelt




     She looks fine. She doesn't need help. Someone else can help… NO! STOP! Think about the people around you. Do you think anyone else wants to help either? In fact, a shocking 88 percent of people pay no attention to bullying. If the number of bullies grow, the number of victims grow with it. Bullying causes people to develop phobias, insecurity, mental illness, even, even suicidal thoughts. Heck, your loved ones could be the victims of bullies, or worse, be bullies.

     Bystanders, they sit there, and just watch a poor somebody being harassed by a bully. Don't be a bystander. Set an example for your friends and family! Have you heard about the bystander effect? It's when a considerable amount of people see someone hurt, but they won't do anything about it, because they think that someone else will help. So when you see someone hurt… Man up, get some empathy, and be an upstander.

     Upstanders fill about a small 20 percent of the earth. So, make some more! Teach your friends and family how to recognize bullying, and how to react to it. Upstanders stop bullies, and try to figure out whatever is driving them to bully in the first place. They will also then become upstanders, then they'll stop another bully, and so on. Eventually, the world will become a better place, and everyone will live a happy, bully-free life.


     There are many different types and forms of bullying. No matter which one you encounter or witnesses , it needs to be stopped. First of all, the most obvious form of bullying, Physical Bullying. It most often occurs when kids or teens, to obtain power and control over their target, use physical actions.

Probably the most difficult form of bullying to spot, and is usually targeted at people who look, act, or behave differently than others. The attacks usually occur when adults aren't around, and adults think doesn't really impact the victim, and the victims try to make it a not as big of a deal; but, truly, verbal bullying can leave the target mentally scarred. Now Cyberbullying. Cyberbullying usually means posting upsetting images, sending unkind emails or texts, or making threats. Usually cyberbullies say mean things online because they don't have courage to say it to the victim face-to-face. Then there's Prejudicial Bullying. It is aimed towards people with a different race, religion, or sexual orientation. It comes in different forms, including physical, verbal, and cyberbullying. There are many other types of bullies, but these specific ones are usually the most common and upsetting forms.

    Bullies have many reasons to… Bully. Usually a bully has already been bullied, so they lash out onto someone else, so that the target can feel what they felt. But that is not still not an okay thing to do, to stop these bullies, ask them how they feel, tell them it's ok; Then they won't have a reason to bully, because they will then know that people care about them. There are also bullies who try to bring people down, leaving themselves on the top, and being popular. Usually, If they are ignored, that solves the problem. Sometimes they'll go really deep to get what they want, and that's when it's a good time to tell an adult.

Read between the lines, and you can figure out the reason behind the bullying. Be an upstander, and make the world a better place.
