WELCOME TO “RE@L READERS RESPOND!”
A NEW, REGULAR FEATURE FROM OUR READERS!
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO OUR READERS AND COMMENTERS
We hope our RE@L Blog Readers have had time to review our most recent RE@Blogs on “CyberBullying.”
Those 3, well-researched blogs recently published were a big help to young learners, teachers and parents in finding effective ways to turn CyberBullying into CyberTeaming. It’s certainly worth bookmarking these useful resources or forwarding to colleagues.
If you missed reading all of or some the CyberBullying Blogs, you can link to all 3 parts by clicking here.
If you are a RE@L return visitor, you may have noticed that our RE@L Blogs always ask for reader comments, questions and suggestions.
Your input can be a big help in our creating a better RE@L blog and on topics you want. Yes! It’s a little known fact, but very few readers have the time to respond to our request.
Hey, we were teachers, too! There are only so many hours in the day and very few hours are our own. That doesn’t leave much time for passing on your blog ideas. But, those ideas are very important to us and your many colleagues who visit our site.
One of our loyal RE@L Blog readers recently sent us an email comment with some very good suggestions on bullying.
You may want to add it to your list of resources. Read on!
These anti-bullying suggestions worked for him. They may also work for your or others you know.
Here are the ideas submitted:
” 1. Idea: Create training program leaders with kids who’ve been bullied. Find kids who had been bullied and who’d be willing to be “Helpers to Other Bullied Kids.” They maybe able to lead discussions more easily and more effectively coach others with similar problems. They can help other victims early on to help lessen the bullying problems they face.
2. Idea: Kids need to know what behaviors and relationships with other students are OK and not-OK. Reach out to the School Administrators immediately if bullying issues arise. Ask them to put policies in place to help resolve bullying.
Do NOT wait to see if acts of bullying simply pass. That’s rarely the case. If bullying gets physical, ask local police to work with the school. They may have some remedies. Try to stop the bullying before it starts or gets worse. Be sure to get in immediate contact with the Parent of the Bully.
Many parents are able to put a stop to their son or daughter’s bullying. Try to start a support system to help those who’ve been bullied. Often, it could be another student who was bullied and found ways to resolve the conflict successfully.
3. Idea: See if you can find an app on the web that allows a kid to alert others, so anyone in his or her physical proximity can come running and provide help. Team coaches should be alerted too. Bullying often can start there. We will see less bullying if more students understand all students need to buddy up and learn together as a team.
Our Commenter closed by saying that most bullies today have also been bullied by others! It’s imperative we find ways to break this vicious cycle of vicious behavior.
