Most people know that bullying is wrong. Calling someone names has absolutely no beneficial purpose. Moreover, hitting someone makes a bully feel good in the moment while doing permanent damage to the person being victimized. With the Internet, people now have even more opportunities to bully through cyberbullying. This includes sending crude pictures, posting fake web pages, or tweeting slanderous messages. Cyberbullying has subsequently led to a rise in a completely new kind of bullying.
One of the effects of bullying is that it can change the victim’s personality. It can cause people who are normally confident and happy to become self-conscious, shy, and unsure. Additionally, victims of bullying may also become sad or depressed. Their confidence might completely disappear, keeping them from trying new things or trusting people. Once a person has been bullied, they may hesitate to participate in situations where he or she might be ridiculed, such as in public speaking or in sports. A bullying victim might even begin to possess previously absent anxious
Despite all the negative effects of bullying, there are even far more serious consequences. People who have been bullied sometimes become so upset, scared, or depressed that they see no worth in themselves and no way out of their torment. There have been countless reports over the past few years of students committing suicide because they were bullied. Meanwhile, there are times when victims see no recourse but to seek revenge by serious acts of violence against the bully and instigators. As a result of bullying, people can lose their ability to love and trust, denying them the chance to experience a quality relationship later in their life. They might find themselves as a submissive partner or they may want to be completely alone. Compounding all of these problems, victims often develop eating disorders, begin to self-injure, or require extensive counseling. Social bullying can also leave people without a supportive group of friends that they can lean on and spend time with.
Another unfortunate consequence of this is that bullying is often cyclical. People who have been bullied can, in an attempt to gain their power and self-esteem back, become bullies themselves. In relation to this, bullies who are not confronted or stopped may find themselves in future positions where they can bully as adults. This is where manipulative bosses and child abusers come from.
Aside from its long-term effects, some consequences of bullying can be seen and felt immediately. When one child calls another child names, the victim might cry and a bruise might appear after a punch to the arm. However, some effects of bullying are not always obvious to the naked eye. The results of bullying might grow and appear over time, damaging a person in profound ways for the long term. There are so many effects of bullying that they are impossible to count or predict. This is why it is so important to stop bullying.
Bullying In School
Bullying is a very popular disease among the school students today. Bullies may be specified as endangered species who make ridicule of others for their own fun. Although life is a journey and a tough fight, but, not everyone’s a fighter. Students with money power try to harm other students and cease their dignity and innocence for the entire school life. To discuss this current topic, I have divided my sample paper into 3 sections specifying the practice of bullying and how we can prevent it and save the children from facing this annoyance. Bullying means to intimidate other students (in school or college context) to do what one wants. Typically, Bullying is similar to ragging whereby group of people with high profile or superiority or seniority do pillory or scoff at the benign students. One should never do a wrong thing to make friends. Just for the sake of impressing other classmates, one should not attempt anything wrong that may harm a credulous student in anyway.
Day to Day examples of Bullying in School
We often come across news, showcasing the effect of bullying in schools and the side effects on the harmed students. There are various types of bullying experienced in schools among the students like: teasing, taunting, threatening, hitting, spitting, and embarrassing others in public place. All these actions may assault one’s dignity. The effect of bullying on the children is so negative, that it may damage their academic performance. It may force students to even commit suicide. It harms the students not only mentally but physically, emotionally, and socially. The cause of bullying varies from case to case. The assault may be due to some personal reasons or out of jealousy or it may depend upon the family background of bullies. Such families are considered to be dysfunctional as they are not interested in knowing about their child activities in school. With ignorance comes fear and the fear leads to dogmatism. Education is the key to acceptance. Such cases can be avoided by the combined efforts of school, parents and off course with the help of school students. It is said that with time, everything settles down, but in such cases we can’t wait for time otherwise something bad may happen and then no one will be able to handle its consequences.
Ways to prevent bullying in school
Some people feel that bullying is a normal part of growing days but, it’s not normal , rather something very aggressive . It has the potential to ruin a student’s school life and must be avoided as much as the school authority can, and the parents can. Although teasing is a type of bullying but not identical to bullying. Teasing is done to provoke other student with continual distractions. Bullying means an imbalance of power. Bullied students are unable to defend themselves and this causes imbalance of power. The school faculty must change their attitude to prevent bullying. They must be non-judgmental, non-partial to students and must justify all the matters sincerely not by taking the side of any student but by being reasonable and practical over a particular matter. Although a school authority performs the duties genuinely still the news of bullying is often heard. It’s because the students remain quiet and don’t bully in the schools because of the fear of authorities but their thinking remains the same. Maybe they don’t harm their classmates but what about their life, their attitude outside the school? In order to change them completely i.e., not only practically or awfully but emotionally also, the help of a child’s parents is indispensable. They must guide their children about their attitude. They must explain the children about what is right and what is wrong.
This would surround the students with positive energy and will definitely help them to overcome their bullying attitude. Rich or poor, high class or low class every child is same and equal and their innocence must not be harmed by substandard and unsatisfactory attitude. Lastly , I want to say that each of us is a book to be written, either good or bad , worst or best and, if written, defines a person’s personality i.e., a person’s persona is by the people, the nature, the positive or the negative energy surrounding him. Good the surroundings are, best a person is.
