Anti Bullying Quotes

Bullying is aggressive behavior that is commonly found in school children. It is not a one-time occurrence and tends to be repeated. Bullying tactics can primarily range from verbal bullying, social bullying, physical bullying and more. It usually happens when there is an imbalance of power between the children. The power in their hands includes being physically stronger, more popular or access to damaging information that is used to cause harm. These imbalances can remain static or change over time. The act of bullying is usually repetitive in nature and often happens more than once. Studies show that both the person who bullies and the person who is bullied can have serious psychological problems because of the experience.

If you see them taking a lot of time off from school, getting in late and avoiding closed off rooms such as rest rooms or locker rooms - it is a marker of being bullied. Other things to look for includes online and offline rumours, being the only one left behind in a class project, spending time alone during breaks, never being invited to class socials gatherings, getting abusive negative text messages etc. If you can recognise even one of these red flags, then you need to immediately bring it to attention and start rectifying the solution. The issue with solving this problem is that the victims do not want to confront the abuser for fear of being a social outcast in school. This means by being very discreet about taking action against the bully. The best thing to do is so to inform a teacher and explain the situation so that the teacher can mediate between both parents. The teacher will also be able to keep a better eye on the student being bullied and prevent future such experiences. They also have the power to have the bully suspended to show how serious the abuse is as a warning to other students. The school has to cultivate an environment that is free of such toxic behaviours. Here are some great quotes on anti-bullying to see how other people cope with this.
