Lets talk about Bullying Kids
Today is all about bullying, children and adults.
I like statistics, they make things real in my book. Enjoy these scary bullying statistics.
42% of kids have been bullied while online
1 in 4 verbally attacked more then once
35% of kids have been threatened online
58% of kids and teens have reported that something mean has been said to them online
77% of students have admitted to bing the victim of one type of bulling or another
1 out of every 4 kids will be bullied sometime throughout their adolescence
46% of males follow by 26% of females have admitted to being victims in physical fights
58% of kids admitted to never telling an adult when they’ve been a victim of a bullying attack
I come from the home that taught me: if they hit you, you hit them back. Bulling wasn’t a problem around me. I stood up to bullies and help anyone that had a problem with bullies. But kids are different now a days. I’m not sure if they are softer or if bullying is getting worst, but its starting to effect more and more kids everyday.
Bulling is getting worst in American schools and studies prove domestic violence at home are leading to an increase in bullying online and in schools.
Bullying and depression are related, depression effects bullies and their victims. Victims of cyber bulling maybe at an even higher risk for depression.
Depression can have a number of serious effects on someones life
– Low Self-esteem
– High rates of school absence
Lets talk about Bullying Adults
I found this awesome article about bullying in the work place. I know all of you will enjoy it as much as I did.
35% of the American workforce, or 53.5 million people, have directly experiences bullying or mistreatment, by one or more employees, usually verbal abuse
15% have witnessed bullying at work
72% of those bullies are bosses
Bullying in the workplace is similar to the school playground in that people are being demeaned or exploited
In the office bullying is far more subversive and challenging to overcome as grown bullies are adept at finding non-assertive victims and staying under the radar
Bosses have a need to push people around to get their way and if no one stood up to them in school then they have no reason to stop their bullying now in the business world
Different types of Bullying Bosses
On the more extreme end of the spectrum there are those who throw tirades and intimidate employees continuously, some are even guilty of sexual harassment this behavior is nefarious enough to warrant termination and legal ramifications.
At the other end of the spectrum you’ll find the covert bully, the much more rampant, fear provoking voss who acts out episodically
These bosses with bullying tendencies are masters at pushing you to the limit with out giving you enough fodder to purse legal actions.
They may even attempt to disguise there horrible unapropiate behavior with levity saying
Oh I was just joking
You’re too sensitive, you know your doing a great job.
Bullying has turned into an epidemic. I consider myself a bad-ass but I have been a victim of bullying at past jobs and currently in certain situations.
What to do…what to do?
I plan on continuing to stand up for myself and I will always remember my parents words
If someone hits you…
HIT THEM BACK!!!
THIS IS A GREAT QUOTE, BUT I’M GOING TO HIT THEM BACK EVERYTIME.
