When faced with bullying, students are intimidated to go to school and feel unsafe outside of school, so they detach themselves from the world. These examples illustrate that there are more disadvantages when being bullied face to face rather than cyberbullying. First, being cyberbullied is not as painful as face to face bullying. Secondly, the effects of face to face bullying stays with you emotionally, mentally, and physically. To begin, face to face bullying is more hurtful than cyberbullying.
Physical Punishment Do you think that people might think twice about spanking and physically punishing their children if it leads to your child resenting you, not being able to trust you, or even hurt the way that they function socially and mentally for the rest of their lives? Every day parents are spanking and physically punishing their children, not knowing how it will affect their kids down the road. Some parents may wonder why their child acts out aggressively at school, why they don’t do as well academically as other students, or maybe why they don’t feel comfortable or are scared to come to you when they have made a mistake? The children who are spanked and physically punished may have psychological damage and not function well academically or socially, the relationships between parent and child are compromised by causing lack of trust and
Emotional impact to the children could lead to depression or loneliness. They would not be interested in joining activities or going to school anymore. Another effect of emotional impact is the shame. They would get ashamed as they would be bullied about having one parent only. One of the things that have effect on children is also on their behavior... Due to them being envious or jealous, and due to the effect of bullying, they would often think of being rebellious.
Youths with severe conduct problems are often seriously disturbed and need help. At the same time, the callousness of their deeds often evokes outrage, concern for innocent victims, and a desire to severely punish or confine them. This creates an inconsistency between society’s concern for children who experience early adversity or abuse and the tendency to criminalize and demonize youths who display violent behaviors. As they grow older, these youths walk a fine line between pleas from the mental health and juvenile justice systems for understanding and rehabilitation and demands from the general public and the criminal justice system to punish the offenders and protect the victims (Steinberg, 2009). Most people have opinions about the nature of youth violence and what can be done about it.
However, some people believe that abuse is discipline, but where is the line drawn? Abuse in the life of juveniles leaves a great impact on a child whether positive or negative. A child can be mistreated in various ways, though, the main focus for this paper is physically abuse. Physical abuse is the excessive and deliberate hitting on a child. Physical manhandle is damage coming about because of physical hostility.
There is a significant difference between finding reasons and looking for excuses. The reasons why a child becomes a bully does not justify their misbehavior, but perhaps they will help us to understand it. On the part of the victim they do at their early age an insecure person, nervous, withdrawn, isolated, etc., many times the children no longer want to attend school for the same fear and in some extreme cases they arrive at the suicide. The damage lies primarily in their personal safety and low self-esteem to feel that their existence is worth little. This article pertains to my question regarding what is bullying because reading many articles I did not find a precise definition for
In response to bullying in schools, the approach mainly focuses on undesired behaviors and apply sanctions. However, this often fails, so an alternative approach is to inquire into the motivations of those who bully and identify the desires that bullying behavior seeks to satisfy. Ken Rigby points out that “In a series of 17 case studies, which focused on students between the ages of 8 and 16 years, it was reported that some of them manifested considerable hostility towards their victim whom they regard as having provoked their aggressive behavior, whilst some others revealed that they had been merely ‘going along with the crowd’ not to miss the fun, or occasionally because it seemed the safest thing to do” (Rigby, 2012). Thus, the desire to
Many aspects of the sexual abuse experience contribute to this dynamic. We theorize that a basic kind of powerlessness occurs in sexual abuse when a child’s territory and body space are repeatedly invaded against the child’s will. This is exacerbated by whatever coercion and manipulation the offender may impose as part of the abuse process. Powerlessness is then reinforced when children see their attempts to halt the abuse frustrated. It is increased when children feel fear, are unable to make adults understand or believe what is happening, or realize how conditions of dependency have trapped them in the situation.
Parents have a hard time realizing what their child is doing or they are the people that molded them to who they are now. An example of the need for holding the parents of these bullies responsible for the actions of their children, extensive research has shown that children 's behavior is channeled through parental conduct. Bullies also have a greater chance of being exposed to domestic violence of maltreatment. Parents who can not resolve conflict well and that use more corporal punishment more often have children who bully. Parents who punish their children when they are angry with extreme emotional outbursts (Garby).
Coporal Punishment which is the act of violence toward a child who has misbehaved is argued by many to either be abusive to the child or helpful. Some people argue that children which expierence coporal punishment are more likely to grow up and become vandals and thieves while others argue that coporal punishment makes a child tougher and prepares them for the real world. While Coporal Punishment was more accepted in the past its acceptance is declining more as we head to the future. The media has made Coporal Punishment feel wrong and abusive and while parents might still approve of it, they might not feel pollitcally correct talking about it. In my opinion Coporal Punishment can be effective but can also be abusive depending on how your
Many schools have been trying to send the message that tormenting children is prohibited. This improves the wellbeing of bullies and also the ones getting harassed. Most of the effects of bullying hurt the one getting bullied mentally, like rumors and the social status of another student. Bullying comes in three different forms: verbal, physical, and psychological, the most common is verbal. Psychological bullying has both long and short term effects for both
Some studies have shown that victims and aggressors are prone to substance abuse, and having antisocial personalities later in adulthood. Bullying also can cause numerous long term psychosocial impairments.These include impairment with mental and physical health, school functioning, and peer relations. Those involved in bullying repeatedly experience poor academic performance, and issues with conduct especially in school. Academic environments are frequently where the bullying takes place. Victims of bullying often have a decline in school performance due to the effects of anxiety and depression.
