Bullying is a huge topic in the schools these days.  And the number of students that come to us looking for a way to handle the school bully is shocking.

We all feel that with a little knowledge and self-confidence, the bullying will be preventable.  And this can be true in a lot of instances.  Bullies seek out who they perceive to be weak – an easy victim.  But bully prevention unfortunately goes beyond self-defense skills.

Bullies are looking for empowerment.  They typically have low self-esteem and other issues that drive them to intimidate to feel good about themselves.  In order to feel successful, they have to create an environment that accommodates their reign of terror.  They typically attract others who support their actions in order to avoid being victims themselves and/or just want to feel part of something.  This is where education comes in…..

Kids need to be taught that they can control their surroundings through positive action.  If you sit back and passively watch the bullying happen, then you are helping to create the bully environment.  Tolerance to bullying is almost as damaging as the bullying itself.

While it’s not easy to teach kids to step up and “do the right thing,” especially when it’s not the most popular thing, all it takes are one or two proactive, brave kids to start a trend that will eliminate the bullying environment completely.  With no energy and followers behind them, the bullies will have no power and will hopefully turn their attention to more healthy, positive activities!
