  • Bullies, come in all shapes and sizes and can be hard to identify. But one thing's for sure, we've all come in contact with a bully at some point or another. As a parent, it's your responsibility to teach your child how to properly, respond. Create an environment that helps your child build friendships. I would like to share this link, about a service on how to protect your children. Luckily, read an article about like an on-star for phone that has been working perfectly for me and my son. With just a click of a button, you get conferenced with an emergency response agent, a list of people in your so called-safety network, and can even get escalated to the nearest 911.

  38. 38. Sticks and stones will break my bones But words will never harm me.What is an Assault? Many people believe that assault refers only to a violent physical attack. In fact, the word assault is used in law to describe a number of different actions with a wide range of seriousness. Under the Criminal Code, an act can be considered an assault even if there is no actual physical contact.

There must also be a gesture or some other action that leads to harm or the threat of harm. An assault can include any of the following acts...  intentionally applying force to a person, such as hitting, poking or shoving them  attempting to apply force to a person, whether or not actual contact is made  threatening with an act or gesture to apply force to another person, causing them to believe they are in danger  carrying a weapon, or what appears to be a weapon and blocking another persons way, accosting them or begging

  40. 40. Respectful and ResponsibleRelationships – there‟s no app forthat . . . Bullying and cyberbullying happens inside and outside the classroom, at home and in the wider community.

  41. 41. N.S. Provincial School Code ofConduct &School Code of ConductGuidelines Intentional, hurtful, behaviours (physical, verbal, psychological) repeatedly used by one or more individuals who exercise power to intimidate, threaten harm, and/or victimize another person/victim who is perceived as relatively weaker; bullying behaviours can be direct and open, or indirect and subtle; use of e-mail or Internet to harass and/or intimidate others
  42. 42. Ontario statutory definition states:“bullying” means repeated andaggressive behaviour by a pupil  With cyberbullying a one-time act can lead to repeated acts, sharing, repetition, and messages and images that are forever …  Bystanders are easily pulled in and often support the perpetrator(s)

  45. 45. David Vs. Goliath - Was DavidReally Such A Hero? We often face a risk in acting, and a risk in not reacting
  46. 46. Oh Those Bystanders It is the reaction and/or silence of the bystander that clearly tips the power balance in favour of the bully; it is also this reaction that supports the position that bullying is acceptable and even “cool” behaviour…Bystander intervention is crucial in bullying situations, bothin person and in the cyberworld.
  47. 47. Who else is involved?• Students? Parents? Friends?• They may accept bad behaviors they witness because they believe professionals who display disruptive behaviors are very skilled, really care, and are aggressively advocating in their best interest.
  48. 48. Mobbing A group of coworkers, or students gang up on another person – often with the intent to force them to leave the group. Emotional abuse committed directly or indirectly by a group Five phases of Mobbing 1. Conflict 2. Aggressive acts 3. Management Involvement 4. Branding as Difficult or Mentally ill 5. Expulsion
  49. 49. Health Impacts on Victims • Physical/Body • Emotional • Mental/Mind • Spiritual
  50. 50. Do Nothing Research shows how targets deal with being bullied; "not doing anything about it (the bullying) was the most common method taken by a target in response to being bullied. And, reporting the bullying or making a complaint were reported to be the most unsuccessful method taken in trying to resolve bullying. The action deemed most successful by respondents were "no action"
  51. 51. Lateral Violence in Students The truth is that most of the violence in the world is committed not by bullies but by victims! A student sees himself as a victim. He used to be the victim of the kids who enraged him by calling him names. Now, in addition, he feels himself to be the victim of the crooked adult society. Society takes his tormentors side against him and punishes him for trying to stop his bullies. He is now angrier and therefore more dangerous than before the wise adults disciplined him for being a bully! Victims Bullies Hero‟s
  52. 52. What do we do with bullies? Zero Tolerance Policies Kick them out? Discipline? Isolate them? Dissocialize them? Similar to a criminal, who has broken the law, punishment rarely has positive consequences Dignity + Respect = no bullying We cannot eliminate all risk, all fear, or all bullying behaviour in society.
  53. 53. Dignity + Respect = no bullyingThe solution or approach to address bullying is to promoteits real enemy - dignity and respect; because with these principles, bullying can not prevail.Bullying is ultimately about isolation - isolating workers andmaking them feel inadequate. If this is so, then theantidote to bullying lies in working together.We can legislate all we want, but until we increaseawareness, educate and advocate, there will be no change.
  54. 54. Take personal responsibility forthe situation• The way forward is to focus on implementing strategies to reduce the opportunities for bullying behavior to occur.• Confront behavior and acknowledge if it has been there for a long time but was never discussed.• Take personal responsibility for the situation.• Try to reach consensus to actively bring about change by developing, publishing, and implementing strategies.• Some people are shocked to discover that they actually contribute, either inadvertently or otherwise, to a bullying culture by their actions or inactions.
  55. 55. There is hope, and reality• Effective anti-bullying practices must include a statement of exactly what constitutes bullying.• We need to work with everyone, bullies, targets, and bystanders.• Modern develop societies have become some of the most peaceful societies in human history.
  56. 56. • I will arrive at schoolon time every day readyto learn• I will treat teachers &classmates with theutmost respect &conduct myself in a manner that enhancesthe learning & socialatmosphere at school.• I make this commitmenton behalf of myself,my parents,my teachers, &fellow classmates in thename of my education &therefore my future.
