Today's Epidemic: Bullying
I have a unique perspective on bullying and today's young people. Over the last 13 years I have dealt directly with countless incidents of bullying and has students report even more to me after the fact. If I could wave a magic wand and change one aspect of growing up today I would rid People of the negative responses to bullying. If it gets in people's heads, it is insidious, demeaning and has potentially long-term consequences.
In talking with students about bullying I came to realize a few key points: 1) There is no way for parents or staff to be present at all times to protect young people from bullies, 2) bullies often do not realize how harmful their actions are and 3) the greatest aid in overcoming bulling is a strong sense of self. Not arrogance, but confidence. There will always be someone stronger than you. There will always be times in this life, when non bullies are not around. There will always be people who try to take advantage of others through intimidation. This is true now and has been true for the history of humankind. Social media and texting may very well amplify the aspects of 'anonymous' bullying for young people growing up today. However, social media and cellphones are not going away. All people need to learn skills and develop attributes that will allow them to overcome the bullies they encounter throughout life.
When you have a strong sense of self - you are comfortable in your own skin, you know what you want,you know you strength, you know how to handle your emotions - then bullies are really no problem. Bullies will always pick on the weaker person in a group. Knowing yourself, you become strong. Knowing yourself, you rise above the bullies. Knowing yourself - you will be able to help others deal with bullies whether it is a classmate, teacher, co-worker, boss or whomever. By truly knowing yourself you become the anti-bully.
