Th1rteen R3asons Why
Suicide because of bullying
Some people think that bullying someone would earn them social respect. Boys in particular. Jesse Miller, a B.C.-based consultant who advises schools and companies on social media, states, "If there's a photo of someone in your class and you're the one who can show it to your buddies, you're going to be the kid who gets that much more attention through the course of a day." There are four types of bullying. 1) Physical Bullying. This type is action-orientated. Physical bullying is a type of bullying where the bully uses physical violence to hurt someone. This includes kicking, hitting, or taking and/or damaging someone else´s property. 2) Verbal Bullying. Verbal bullies use words to harm or humiliate another person. Name-calling, constant teasing, racial comments, and insulting are all apart of verbal bullying. Cyber-bullying is also in this category. 3) Relational or Relationship Bullying. These bullis try to tell their peers to exclude a certain person or group and cut the victim off from their social connectiond. 4) Reactive Victims. Reacive victims are straddling the fence between a bully and a victim. They often taunt bullies or bully other people themselvs.
Someone who doesn't do anything to stop something that is bad from happening when they know they can is a bystander. For every bully, there is a bystander. Plain and simple. While most teenagers and young adults know that rude treatment towards peers is wrong, many of them fear that is they speak up, they will be the next victim. This is a very common reason why bystanders don't say anything. "So much more harm can happen when someone's been traumatized and there's a lack of response," Briggs-King says from Durham, N.C. Children should be taught that speaking up is a moral. "It's a criminal offence to share photos of underage people," Carol Todd says from her home in Port Coquitlam, B.C. "People with a conscience should report this stuff. You have to do what's right."
