Do you think it is possible to stop bullying in schools?

  • Stop this please

    More than 13,000 teens commit suicide every month, MONTH that's over 140,000 teens every year, and shouldn't we have stopped this at Amanda Todd? I mean, isn't that enough? This is so wrong, people should take bullying children seriously because it could happen to one of their kids one day

  • I think it is possible to stop bullying in school.

    If a kid is getting bullied then someone needs to help them "defeat" the bully, because it will keep on going and going until the bully feels like they have all the power in the world. And so I think there needs to be a councilor that only deals with problems like bullying.

  • Bulling Needs to Stop

    Bullying needs to stop and people need to stand up for what is wrong. As a person who has experienced bullying from middle school to High school it needs to stop. There needs to be witnesses and the schools need to do more than just keep an eye out for the victim. They need to re-enforce it after school hours and if they can't then they need to hire security. Its not right to be bullied, school is one place out of many that are suppose to be a safe place and if a child feels they can't go to school because they are being bullied then that says something right there. Not to include parents, parents need to do more even if they have a hectic lifestyle. They need to spend time with their kids to find out how their day is going and if they are being bullied then there needs to be action going on to make the kids feel safe again.

  • The only fight you need to win is in your mind

    My thoughts are make a difference or become aware of the bulling and teach your family about virtue,communication and individuality because this is what defines us from animals. I say this because parents get confused and put limitations on there family that only holds them back from finding purpose in life and reasons to make a difference, if they were tought how to listen to there inner voice that tells them they don't like what's going on to them or others and had the ability to express them selves as human beings and not resort to retaliation of repetition of words and actions that have no solution to the ignorance at hand, of what is the right way to treat each individual and how to get rid of ones self pride so there able to accept ones own ignorance

    Because we all know nature always shows us SIN dose not exist, it's survival of the fittest, for animals that is. But because nature dose not aply to just the word and meaning of animal but the whole world we live in, it only goes to show the more reason to show more intelligence and less ignorance towards life and how we can advance as a intelligent race and not as survivalist on a crash cause with death.

    These so called destiny's are killing us in our tracks before we make a difference, don't try to tie individual's around you in to your Grave, because every ones cup is different in size. But remember that nothing works in order, like how a small cup should fill up first before the big cup. It goes either way.

    Also when some one reads what I have come to know through trial and error. Understand that when you believe you know or have the answer , it only shows your ignorance as much as your growth and that the next elevation of the same problem makes my truth seem wrong because it dose not solve the next question. I know that what I have typed to be correct and to be a step in the right direction. If your ignorance proceeds you, and you still proclaim I'm wrong. You are saying my whole life of trials and found purpose in life is wrong even though you know little about what it mean to be human your self. Now if you still don't agree let me ask you this do you believe in the potential of humankind. If so then you will understand there is more than one solution to a problem because we are not alone ...

  • Bullying is a learned behavior

    Bullying is a learned behavior that can be reversed by teaching positive behaviors in its place. Many (not all) schools have a bully culture with bully adults; breeding bullying. Society, adults, teachers and children that are bullies or promote bullying (which includes being a bystander or turning a "blind eye"), need to be taught positive behaviors that replace the negative behavior.

  • Yes,it is possible to stop bullying in schools.

    If people really put an effort forward and work together as a team then they should be able to stop bullying in schools.The problem now is that people can not think that their particular child would be the one guilty of bullying so it is not particularly their problem.This needs to change from an individual problem to a community problem.

  • Sure fire way to stop a bully the old fashioned way, works every time it's tried

    The only way to stop a bully. It works everytime it's tried is to take a bully and knock him on his ass. I know it's against everything the woosification society promotes, but if you want to stop a bully thats the old fashioned way of doing it, and it works. Teachers and principals , if they go back to having and using a paddle, that would put an end to a lot of bullying and disrespect issues. We need to go back to the old ways of doing things, we've raised a bunch of lazy disrespectful brats thanks to all these do gooders that told us we couldn't discipline our kids. Bullies is part of that, but they can be stopped the old fashioned way.

  • Bullying cannot escape concerted scrutiny

    Bullying in schools continues because of the complicit inaction of bystanders who witness the bullying and do nothing. One could even think of these bystanders as secondary victims who are oppressed into silence by their fear of being the bully's next target. If everyone in the school (from school leaders, teachers, students, non-teaching staff) makes a concerted attempt to speak out against any form of bullying that they see, and make it clear that the majority in the school is dead against any form of bullying, the number of bystanders would decline as they sense the support of the majority. In order for this majority to be formed, a clear definition of bullying would have to be agreed upon and known and understood by the entire school population. Make bullying uncool and no one will do it.

  • Yes, by giving a very tight security

    Bullying can be avoided by giving extra secuirity. Such as camera, guards etc. Bullying nowadays is done because there is no teachers seeing it, thus, they can bully everyone without getting caught. But if there are cameras in every spot, he/she will be caught and will be given a worth consequence

  • Yes! It can be stopped.

    Many people think that It can't be stopped and it will never stop but there is no reason to not try to stop it and we should try because it is such a big deal at schools and we should stop it because: 1. It is a big deal 2. Kids are sad at school and do not like it.

  • No way to stop bullying

    It has gotten too far. And with what the teacher say"don't fight back" the only way for the bully to stop bullying is after you pass highschool and he/she fails. It has come to this after all this time. Over generations of dicipline those who baby there child have a result of vilence, and there is nothing we can do.

  • It is part of being human

    It's simple really, as long as people have opinions and emotions, bullying can't be stopped. I've read all of the yes statements, many of them would only work for certain situations. There are many types of bullying, and none of them can be totally wiped out by the human race. Verbal bullying can't be stopped as long as people can have opinions and are able to speak. Physical bullying can't be stopped as long as people are able to move. Cyberbullying can't be stopped as long as people have access to the internet. Bullying is of course a bad thing, but there's really no way to stop it. At least, not yet.

  • It can not be stooped

    The bullies have learned to accept the punishments and want to get suspended and with all the things that the schools do to try and stop bullying (assemblies, posters, cameras, hall moniters, etc...) it has not stoped any of the bullying going on and it has been getting worse to where there has been a lot more sucides going on.

  • Never, not ever.

    There is no actual way to stop bullying. Humans are humans, and we will always pick on someone in order to feel superior, whether it's the kid next door to an entire race. Putting rules just makes it worse, assemblies do nothing, and I think those anti-bullying t-shirts make it worse. People are born and are taught to bully, no I'm not kidding. Movies, tv shows, all have SOME form of bullying happening to some character at a eventual point. There is, I will shout, ABSOLUTELY NO FRICKING WAY TO STOP BULLYING FOR ALL ETERNITY.

  • No...Not Ever : (

    Bullying is such a terrible crime that cost people their lives every day, every week, every month and so on. But even when we hear about these suicides like Amanda Todd, do we do anything? Do we actually get involved, most will say no. We watch her video on YouTube in awe but do we do anything to stop others from doing the same? Even if we had the opportunity what would u do? So many questions build from just one thought. Not enough people are stepping in and doing something about it. It makes me angry that you can just sit at a computer and watch all of these suicide stories and not to a single thing! Just because people say don't bully doesn't mean they listen. Rules aren't being enforced as much as other places around America and the world. I build so much anger just typing this! People are just too afraid, to stand up and speak their minds.

  • It cant be stopped

    When someone is getting bullied the teachers don't do anything about it and they just want them to ignore it....They say the bullying will stop once u pass highschool, but the person getting bullied isn't gonna pass if they r depressed and cant concentrate so then they are going to keep getting bullied and end up dropping out then we have more violent and depressed people around us

  • Bullying can only be minimized not stoped

    Bullying has been around for years, it is as if it has become a ritual or an annual thing. Bullying can't just be stopped overnight or even in month, it would be a massive job. Some of the supporting statements say how programs and extra security can be put into schools to target the bullies and to stop them from continuing to do it. There is no way to stop all bullying, even in adults. There are ways of minimizing it but not extincting it. Teachers and parents are role models for young kids, which means that if kids see a teacher or parent bullying another person then that might influence them to bully others in their future years. With these programs with teachers forcing the known bullies to attend these programs, it might seem as if they the teachers are bullying the bullies to attend the programs with peer pressure which won't stop them from doing it. Bullying won't stop.

  • Bullying can't be Stopped.

    It is in human nature to judge others but when being forced to stop something that is only natural to life can have its risks. Support groups, counseling, and programs can all help support the non bullying side but there is no physical way to stop bullying without bullying yourself. As bystanders, people can put a stop to bullying but bystanders are a small resolution to a big problem. Forcing to stop the problem means forcing to stop the bullies but will they stop by following orders? Bullying is a long term problem that is too big to stop.

  • Its human nature

    It is not possible to completely eradicate bullying, as its apart of human nature and hierarchy formed from evolution. Bullies will always find away to antagonize people and there will never be a way to stop what causes a bully to bully (eg. Issues a home). You can't force student to take special programs to stop it and victims and bullies will not want to take them either. There are ways to minimize bullying, but we can never stop it with people still having freedom of choice and not being forced.

  • No, you cant stop bullying.

    Bully's can not be stopped. The amount of bullying that goes on, that we can see is a lot. People who get bullies don't report it, giving the bully more satisfaction in what he is doing. Bullying has gotten to big in this society to change. People want to change how the bully acts, but people aren't going to change someone's personality no matter how big the consequence is.
