Bullying as I quoted from www.stopbullying.gov “is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems”. The effect of bullying also have a serious impact to the victim, such as more likely to feel disconnected from school and not like school, have lower academic outcomes, and lower attendance since the victim dislike going to school because of the bullies. In 2015 LSM Plan International and International Center for Research on Women (IRCW) conducting a research and the result is astonishing, 84% of children in the age of 12 – 17 years old experiencing a school bullying, starts from a embarrassing nickname until a physical injury. Although the number keeps decreasing every years but the number still high.
There are several solution for bullying. The first thing is the victim, the victim of bullying must shows his sign of rejection from bullies, since this is the first step for the victim from stepping out from the victim zoned and to state to the bullies that he/she are capable of defending him/herself. The second is to encourages the victim to stop be alone, the bullies intends to target someone that don’t have friends and was not capable of defending him/herself. To going in group can lowering the chance the bullies will come. The third is to show no emotional feeling when the bullying occurred since the bullying will it lose it feels when the victim shows no emotion at all and the feeling to hurts other will vanish significantly. But if the victim shows emotion when the bullying occur the bullying will get more passionated and when that happen it will need the help of adults.
The victim must tell his/her parents about the bullying that happen to him/herself, then after that the parents should tell the parents of the bullies about the bullying. The parents have a big role in education of the children and to teach the children how importance to respect each other and also help to prevent bullying from happening again. The adult is the important element to stop bullying, the adults must encourages their child to speak about things in school, since the effect of bullying won’t be seen so clearly and sometimes the adults or parents to be specifics thinks it is only their nature. The parents also hold importance role when it came to help the child to dare to come to the school and to face the bullies.
Problem about bullying is not just about the victim but also the way to educated the bullies to change and not conduct another bullying to other students. Because it best to prevent the bullying by educated the person who did it, getting to know more and find out why they are doing it. Many of the bullies have a problem at home and don’t know what to do. The parents have the biggest role in bullying by educated the children and getting to know the problem of their child.
Bullying is a bad things and can be considered a crime. Bullying only bring pain and shame to everyone. The best thing that we can do is to prevent bullying to happens and it can starts from the roots of the problem by giving a education to our children to respect each other and bullying is not a good things to do. How to prevent and stop bullying is not only the job of the teacher and school staff but also the job of the parents to oversee their children from the bullying activities.
