SORT BY Relevancy
Bullying may be defined as the activity of repeated, aggressive behavior intended to hurt another person, physically, mentally or emotionally. Bullying is characterized by an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person. It can be classified into four types:
Physical, verbal, and relational bullying are most prevalent in primary school and could also begin in preschool. Cyber-bullying, arguably the most destructive and common form today, is more common in secondary school than in primary school. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullying#cite_note-:0-10
If you hit your kid, you give them a message that it’s okay to hit others. And a new study examining the case histories of almost 2,500 American children confirms that spanking breeds bullies. Lead author Dr. Catherine Taylor of Tulane University... factored out the influences such as maternal mental health and use of drugs, domestic violence, neglect, income, age, race and education. And spanking emerged as the most important factor in determining which three-year-old children developed into aggressive five-year-olds. ("Mothers' Spanking of 3-Year-Old Children and Subsequent Risk of Children's Aggressive Behavior", C. A. Taylor, J. A. Manganello, S. J. Lee, J. C. Rice, Pediatrics 2010; 125:5 e1057-e1065; published ahead of print April 12, 2010, doi:10.1542/peds.2009-2678)
Should we focus on early intervention with parents?
Beyond Bullying: Breaking The Cycle of Shame, Bullying and Violence Dr. Jonathan Fast
Fast delves into the psychology and sociology of shame and concludes that this powerful emotion is the common thread explaining the recent rise in domestic terrorism and gun violence, school and online bullying, and suicide among adolescents. Fast hopes that by understanding shame-why we feel it and how it can fester-we can develop strategies to prevent the acts of violence and hate that are motivated by it.--Scientific American MIND

Bullying is not a new topic. It has been around since biblical times with such stories as David and Goliath, and Joseph whose brothers were so jealous of their father's favoritism that they sold him to the Egyptians and told their father he was dead.
Today, bullying has taken a a new phase with cyberbullying. Kids can be involved in bullying behind a screen, anonymously in their own homes.
Today's special guest, Jill Vanderwood has experienced bullying first hand. In the fifth grade she told on a boy who stole her eraser. All the boys in her class vowed to get her back. The bullying began that year and continued into high school. One boy even brought a gas mask to school for his friend who had to sit next to her in class.
In her new book, Erase the Problem of Bullying Jill Vanderwood shares her own story along with the stories of others who have been bullied, such as NBA All Star, James Donaldson, who nearly gave up on a basketball career because of the problem he was having with bullies.
Jill Ammon Vanderwood is the award winning author of eight books. Her books have won the Indie Excellence Award, Gold and Silver Quill from the League of Utah Writers, USA Best Books Award and the National Mom's Choice Award.

Whe you're in elementary school, a teacher seems to be the most powerful person in your life. A teacher can send home a bad report, keep you from passing to the next grade, publicly humiliate you in class, and make your time in school a nightmare. Or a teacher can be the doorway to enlightenment, inspiration and lifelong motivation toward high achievement. Teachers have a lot of influence, however, they are just regular human beings with faults and shortcomings just like everybody else. When teachers bring their own prejudices and biases into the classroom, they can make life hell for the students they disfavor. How do you find out if your child is being "bullied" by a teacher that really does dislike them, for whatever reason? What should you say in a private meeting with a teacher?
