Summary of Research

What is bullying? Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior in which someone intentionally and repeatedly causes another person injury or discomfort. Bullying can take the form of physical contact, words or more subtle actions.” Bullying is not good. Bullying can get so bad that school students take their own lives because they can’t take the pain. The U.S. Department of Education says, “school is obligated to address student-on-student bullying based on student’s race, color, national origin, sex, or disability.” I think that with the schools saying this that it should resolve some bullying, but there is still bullying happening. The Official Blog of the U.S. Department of Education says that when you see bullying take place, intervene immediately and get adult help if necessary. If you are getting bullied and it gets to a point of not being able to take it, you need to get an adult involved so they can help you stop the bullying. Leading off of the topic how to stop bullying, how do we help those who have been bullied and now live in their own blocked out world? The National Bullying Prevention Center informs us that, first you have to understand why they are like the way they are, they have been hurt and most likely they are scared of what could happen to them. So you need to let them take their time and if they don’t accept your friendship you just need to let it go because there is probably a deeper meaning why they don’t want it. Bullying doesn't only happen at school, it can happen almost anywhere. That's why we need to be good people because we don’t need anymore people taking their lives.
