Reporting

Posted: 5/23/2011

When I first reported bullying, the school handed me a two page form to fill out. I handed it back because I have a learning disability and needed help to fill it out. They wouldn't offer assistance.

I endured months of bullying until my parents found out by accident. I still didn't tell them everything. They instructed me to report it and followed up for several days. When I still didn't my mom asked why and I told her about the report. She went with me the next day and they told her she couldn't help me with the report. She immediately found the principal and informed him that the policy prevented children with disabilities from having access to reporting incidents of bullying. She told him she was helping me with the form and that he needed to change his policy so that students with disabilities could take the form to their guidance counselor for assistance in filling it out. Make sure reporting procedures are accessible to everyone.

In special education classes there should be monthly discussions about bullying, what it is, what it looks like, how to get help and how to report. I need constant reminders and assistance with things like this because of my disability. Let me know that I can have assistance. In all classrooms teachers need to establish clear policies on how classmates are to be treated and these should also be revisited regularly.

Not one of my classrooms has ever had anything posted about bullying and intolerance of it. I think a visual reminder in all classrooms would be beneficial.

I Just Want To Be Included

Posted: 5/23/2011

this girl i thought was my friend said i was a frizzy-haired bookworm. ever since then i have been so self concious about my hair and how i look. i don't kiss people for the heck of it. she called me a loser because i went to this popular hangout and she doen't go because she thinks it's stupid. my own bestfriends won't save me a seat at lunch and when they do they don't talk to me.they leave me out of stuff when they know im in the room. i'm bored and tried of staying home. it's boring and i'm alone. i have low self-esteem. the populars don't like me because i get straight a's (this quarter for the 1st time). i'm smart and i get called a nerd. i'm tried of all the name calling. in 6th grade there was a anti-(My name) group. it was awful. my school is filled with snobby kids tho. i've come to the point of wanting to cut myself. i never do. or never will. i just want to feel included.

Class President

Posted: 5/23/2011

When I was in senior high, I was the class president. Since we are studying in a privates school, we presidents took our job seriously. I was running for the leadership award, but unfortunately I was bullied hard core by the "Coolies". When a teacher is inside the classroom they behave, but once the teacher is gone they would backstab me in front of the whole class. It hurts, because some of my classmates believe in my capabilities. So I went to the principal and talked to my mom aboout it, before i knew it they were so good to me.

My Friend Turned On Me

Posted: 5/23/2011

My friend just got mad at me for no reason, and she took the popular girl and a bunch of other people and turned them against me. She and them sit in a circle and trash me all lunch and reccess. They steal my clothes. Glare at me. Make fake accounts on Facebook and harrass me. The teachers and my parents don't care. I'm alone and I have no idea why.

The Food Chain

Posted: 5/23/2011

I’ve been bullied or talked behind my back for almost 10 years. I get pretty used to it since I did have this kind of unusual personality that people don't see as normal or good to look at. I would always be happy, do weird stuff that amuses me or even make the others laugh. I just don't know how they started to talk about me like I'm some kind of a threat or weirdo.

But I endured all of this because I have friends that understand and support me and it would just make me ignore all of it. For the kids out there who have been bullied, don't mind those bullies for talking behind your back, it’s just their either jealous for your open personality. For those who are bullied physically, don't be afraid to consult the adults or confront them why do they bully you like that.

But if cases comes to death threats or something like that. It's a serious matter that you tell the principal or the adults. Mostly, these kinds of bullies are the outcasts themselves in my opinion. Afraid of going down of this so called 'food chain' , popular, normal, geeks. What's with all that? Is it just because a person does theater their gay already? That doesn't make sense for me. This is one of the things how I got over bullying, I would just think that I'm more emotionally prepared for anything that happens to me, may it be outcast by the others because of the rumors being spread.

Rather than the others who are afraid to equalize themselves with the others and make them think their they're in the top. No one was born higher than the other. We are all equal. Those so called princesses or jocks grew the same way as we do. Just a they grow up pride filled them under the influence given by them and that's how the food chain starts where the predator aims for the prey, us outcasts. So to all my fellow people of the world who have been bullied into thinking that we want to die.

Don't give up, all of us can have a strong point in our heart that we can surpass this obstacle in our life that will just make us more strong-willed in the future.

Friends Bullying Friends

Posted: 5/23/2011

I think the most prominent type of bullying I have witnessed is from one friend to another. They say something that they mean as a joke for the most part and even though the person who is being bullied laughs because they know that for the most part they are joking, it still hurts them and they still feel the need to try to change or hide whatever they were being bullied over. I think kids just need to become more aware of what they say and how it can really effect someone.
