What are the different kinds of Bullies?
Friday, 17 October 2008 18:38

FAQThere are four main types of Bullies:

Physical Bullies

Physical bullies are action-oriented. This type of bullying includes hitting or kicking the victim, or, taking or damaging the victim's property. This is the least sophisticated type of bullying because it is so easy to identify. Physical bullies are soon known to the entire population in the school. As they get older, their attacks usually become more aggressive. These aggressive characteristics manifest themselves as bullies become adults.

Verbal Bullies

Verbal bullies use words to hurt or humiliate another person. Verbal bullying includes name-calling, insulting, making racist comments and constant teasing. This type of bullying is the easiest to inflict on other children. It is quick and to the point. It can occur in the least amount of time available, and its effects can be more devastating in some ways than physical bullying because there are no visible scars.

Relational Bullies
Relational or relationship bullies try to convince their peers to exclude or reject a certain person or people and cut the victims off from their social connections. This type of bullying is linked to verbal bullying and usually occurs when children (most often girls) spread nasty rumors about others or exclude an ex-friend from the peer group. The most devastating effect with this type of bullying is the rejection by the peer group at a time when children most need their social connections.

Reactive victims
Reactive victims straddle a fence of being a bully and or victim. They are often the most difficult to identify because at first glance they seem to be targets for other bullies. However, reactive victims often taunt bullies, and bully other people themselves. Most of the incidents are physical in nature. These victims are impulsive and react quickly to intentional and unintentional physical encounters. In some cases, reactive victims begin as victims and become bullies as they try to retaliate. A reactive victim will approach a person who has been bullying him/her and say something like, "You better not bug me today, otherwise I'll tell the teacher and boy, will you be in trouble, so you just better watch out."

Statements such as this are akin to waving a red flag in front of a raging bull, and may provoke a bully into action. Reactive victims then fight back and claim self defense. Reactive victims need to learn how to avoid bullies.

Bullying isnt funny
Ive gone through being bullied i once was a bi standar, the victim ( More then anything else) and even the bully .... I say stop stand up to those who bully and show the bullied that really they only picked u because you have or they think u have a perfect life... because u can show the world ur smile and say i have a million reasons to smile and jus 3 reasons to cry... I say step in to help those in need did you know that there are 17 suicides everyday because of bullying and every 17 seconds someone tries... Honestly i think stop the suicide stop the bullies and stop the war then maybe just maybe we can fix the world inch by inch and we dont have to cry when we here about the poor countries or someone getting shot

You know just because you are a victim of bullying it doesn't mean you have to go for revenge like bully the person back have a heart! smilies/smiley.gif
If you bully the person back it will come back to you it will just go on and on and on so why not end it right itin one place.
Stand up to the bully instead of wiating and crying...
Tell someone you know better than the bully so why suffer.
If you knew better you wouldn't go and bully that person back you would stand up to yourself! I know the feeling of being bullying... so you decide after all it's your life not mine remember.smilies/cool.gif

I was bullied all through my life, hurt, laughed at, and I am seriously messed up. I cut myself, starve myself and might run away or kill myself. So no, guys, bullying is the worst thing you could ever do to a child, and children can be so cruel. I don' ever want to see another child bullied, and if I do, I am going to run.

Root Cause of Bullying
I know the feeling of being bullied, not just as a student but also as a teacher. I got bullied last week by a bunch of morons in a tenth-grade class. They were throwing pieces of chalk at me while I was trying to conduct a lesson, and while their serious classmates were trying to learn something. They only threw things when my back was turned, but I could see the ones who found it funny. Their names have been reported to the vice principal at my school, who in turn will inform their parents about what happened.

Bullying in schools is the main reason why I oppose compulsory school attendance, a root cause of bullying. Bullies are ignorant and typically don't care about what's being taught in school and thus won't learn anything. Compulsory attendance therefore really has nothing good going for it. It has one major strike against it, though, namely that bullies involuntarily kept there in the classroom disrupt the classroom environment and interfere with the learning of those who go to school to actually learn something. It would open up a lot of doors to learning for those willing to learn if we teachers could just boot the morons out the classroom door.

Every bully's worst nightmare said:

This just reflects societal subjugation
The purpose of schools is not education, but systematized obedience-training from childhood in order to create a docile work-force population which does as it's told, an can't think for itself. After all, if your earliest childhood experiences are of being legally forced to go to a government education-center among strangers, regardless of how your rights are violated there, then clearly you're learning that individual rights really don't matter that much, and you're just supposed to tolerate any abuse that comes along, and "get used to it--" and feel indifferent or superior to anyone who complains.

So basically, bullying is simply the end-product of a long-running political cause, and the best solution is for victims to take the matter to court immediately, since otherwise the schools won't do anything, since they know that they've got the kids basically as prisoners with no rights.

Students have to learn that schools and faculty are NOT their friends, but their JAILERS- and schools ARE jails of a sort... for those who committed no crime. Ironically, however, prisoners have more rights than students.

Bullied no more said:

Standing by is Just as Guilty
I taught my son never to start a fight, but if someone started one with him, to always finish it. AND I taught him never to just stand by if someone else was being bullied. More than once the school suspending him for fighting. When I'd ask why, it would turn out he was defending some kid being picked on. So I'd make his suspension into a vacation -- we'd go out and do something unusually fun.

I get bullied by my little sister alot .
Every time we are in a group of people and I'm with her, I get ignored alot of the time because she is very outgoing and friendly and alot of people like that about her personality. And I'm more quiet , introverted and not very outgoing

Okay,i admit that bullies have an awesomely unique side, but this doesn't mean that just because they don't show there good side they show there bad side. Life goes on , you have ups and downs. But if you think you can live on by bullying others. Think again, because if you have no life, go make one for yourself, go discover yourself But people often say that a person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates. And of course peace a really big issue in the world now, if you want peace you don't back to a bully, just keep ignoring because if you fight back you're just as equal as that bully. He bullied you and you bully him back. For victims, life goes on, you need to be dependent on yourself, you can't be dependent on a by stander, there just there to stand around and see "the MOST Amazing SHOW EVER" For the teachers who get bullied, you can"t just make the kid go to the office or report them to the principal, if you want them to be more respectful to you there are other ways you can use. Like sometimes let them do what they want to, something they think is fun and then make sure you also teach them the lesson you are supposed to teach. But you don't improve someone by giving them punishments. There are positive ways. You guys are teachers, teachers should know between good and bad. Bullying doesn’t only affect the life of the one being bullied; if the bully hasn’t been stopped he can come attack you also. Bullying has an impact on everybody's lives, Because bullying isn't just bullying it's being bad and taking negative decision under negative circumstances.

This is a serious issue, and it's definitely not funny. I have been verbally bullied, a lot. Luckily it hasn't ever really gotten physical. But sometimes it was pretty bad. I'd fake being sick just so I wouldn't have to go to school and deal with them. And as I'm working on a research paper, I've read some pretty bad cases. Don't joke around about bullying, please.

stop bullying
I have been bullied ever since I started school when I was little. Physically,verbally,relation bullied and peer bullied, and I am still being bullied. It it not right. It must stop. People have no reason to pick on anyone. For all you bullies, get a life. When someone gets picked on it changes them. It can make them a bully too, or make them scared. It made me a very shy person, scared to talk to anyone. There was a time when I was a bully, and I regret it so much. We all need to start getting along.
