The purpose of this study is to find out if bully-victims are bullied and affected more than pure victims in terms of physical and verbal bullying. It is also to figure out why some children become victims and bullies, and others do not. What I will be discussing about in this essay would be the weaknesses and strengths of each study, the differences and similarities between the two, the implications of five other articles and at the end either support or contradict what was studied. SUMMARY Bullying is a frequent and recurring aggression in which one or more people deliberately disturb or harm another helpless individual verbally, physically, or psychologically (Olweus, 1996a). However, the child who bullies, pure bullies, or in this case, bully-victims, who are victims themselves and also bullies others are usually highly
If a bully spread rumors about you, it has negative effects on you. Bullies may say something about how you look and how ugly you are to make them look cool or boost their ego. Victims who have low self-esteem may feel like they don’t belong to our society, which is not true. No one should ever feel this way. Even though, they may try to look confident in front of the bullies, on the inside they are really hurting.
Bullying Can Be Prevented Bullying is a form of violence to pick on victims because they are different from their bullies, have insecurity/jealousy or home problems. The hate towards their victim has something to do with the victim having an unusual gift or being intelligent the bullies has yet to become. It is important that this behavior should be prevented or it will become worse. Bullying is one of the main issues public and private schools have to face on a day-to-day basis. When the bully takes it too far, the victim snaps and retaliates by fighting him/her back physically or verbally.
In Grant Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod states his belief that we seemingly “hate” the brightest kids in school partially because of some of the most “noted dropouts” in today’s society. Additionally, Penrod claims that the perceived hatred of intelligence in a high school setting is causing actual emotional harm to the children who are labeled as the “nerds” or “geeks”- thus, the classic “smart kids.” If entering just about any of the several thousand high schools around the country, they will hear choruses of “Did you actually study?’, “Why would you even bother studying- the game was on last night”, “Of course I didn’t study; I had football practice” or dozens of similar taunting phrases can be heard constantly
Relationship with bully/victim. A bystander’s action against cyberbullying is affected by the relationship he/she has with the bully and the victim. Guerra and Williams (2007) gave an empirically based understanding of bullying and bystander behavior. That understanding included an increased awareness of bullying behavior, social cognitive processes involved in the prevention of bullying, the social context surrounding bullying incidents, and the involvement of adults and youth in preventing such incidents. That study also showed that bystanders were more willing to help stop the bullying if they were closer to the victim than the bully but were more likely to ignore the events if the bully was their friend, which suggests that a person’s personal
Especially when someone has something wrong already. Transgender kids will be bullied twice as much because they are different. If people make the transformation when their older, they will be more apt to better deal with the bullying. Younger aged people will most likely have a harder time coping with the teasing and bullying, which could potentially lead to self harm or even worse. “M.C.
Bullying is the use of a person’s strength or power to frighten or hurt weaker people. These children said that bullying is wrong, bullying can hurt and bullies should be severely punished. Some of these children think with a sense of revenge. As a consequence, they think that if someone bullies them that person should also be bullied or “beaten up”. In the eyes of these children, bullying is “when someone is doing mean or hurtful things to another person”.
Among the students, especially in the high schools, bullying is some kind of power-seeking and it is a common behavior. Most of the time, it could be seen as giving a name or mocking with physical appearance, but sometimes it can include violence; however, both of them can affect bullied students ' life negatively and permanently. There are two main effects of bullying on students who are bullied. First of all, when students are bullied in school there may face with relationship problems. To start with, bullied children may experience social relationship problems because of the things s/he went through.
There are several reasons which lead to cyberbullying One of the causes is people who have been bullied in the past want to do the same with others. When these victims have experienced being bullied, they may seek revenge, in other words, they want someone who is weaker than them to suffer their trauma. In addition, this action is a justification for the time when cyberbullying-victims have been tormented and harassed. By cyberbullying others, they may feel better for themselves but that is just a temporary sense of relief. Another reason for cyber-harassment is people want to prove themselves and validate their popularity.
