School and Bullies: By Suzanne Klare


Tomorrow, school starts again here in Holland. There are several reasons why I like and dislike that, and here's a list of them:

Dislike Reasons:
-Mean/weird/annoying teachers
-TOO MUCH HOMEWORK
-Mean/weird/annoying classmates
-Boring classes
-Bullies 
-Tests 
-Boring class projects
-Horribly organized/boring school trips
-Deadlines

Like Reasons:
-Friends who you see every day
-Do homework with your friends
-Pranking your teachers (The ones who you like and who like you back)
-Having fun inbetween lessons
-Being extra happy when you don't have any homework because you finished it all
-Drawing in your diary when you're bored in class
-Cool class projects
-Fun class trips

The like list is a lot longer, but I'm still kind of bitter because of the dislike list. But I can handle those! In my own way. 
Because some of you guys maybe need some advice on some of the dislike-things list, I'm going to give you guys some tips, wether you like it or not >:D

Bullies:
There are 2 things people always say about this subject:
1. If you're being bullied, go to a teacher and tell them.
This doesn´t always work, because at some schools, the teachers and everyone are horrible and don't care at all or say that it´s your own fault.
2. You should just ignore bullies, then it´s no fun for them.
This doesn't always work either, because it can be incredibly hard or impossible to ignore them. And people who are being bullied know that very well.
I'm not saying these two solutions aren't good at all, I´m just saying that they don't work in every situation.
3. Stand up to them.
I agree mostly with this solution, standing up against bullies is one of the better ways to get rid of them. Most bullies are secretly big cowards, so when you show some back bone, they leave you alone. Altough, that's not always the solution either. Some bullies will just laugh at you and just continue

So here's my solution:
Bullies always have a reason why they start bullying. Here are some possible reasons:
-They want to feel better than everyone else.
-They were bullied before and want to prevent being bullied themselves
-They have problems at home like:
 1. A family member has a handicap (or the like)
 2. A sibling is bullying them and the younger one who bullies you thinks it's normal to do that.
 3. The parents hit them or never show love to their child.
 4. The child is spoiled very much because the parents don't have time for them.
 5. The parents (or one of them) are just big meanies (I don't know any other word for it without beginning to curse) 
-They have mental problems
Too many to name them all.

About the fact that they want to feel better about themselves, here's a good tip:
Don't ignore them! In fact, you should give a sassy response when they say something to you. Laugh at how stupid they can be, make fun of them, show them what it feels like. Don't treat bullies like you're their slave, treat them like your enemy. They won't feel the rush of being in charge over you any more, so naturely, they'll quit making fun of you. It works with all bullies I've seen, trust me.
Then, about the people who have problems or who were bullied in the past. If you get to know them, they might actually be nicer than you expected. They have just as little self confidence as you do, and maybe you have a lot in common. You never know.

So if you're being bullied by anyone, don't let them get you. You're strong, beautiful, fantastic and unique, no matter what they say about you.

I could go on about the other dislike-things, but the blog post already is incredibly long. If you need advice on anything else, no matter what, it can be absolutely everything, tell me in the comments. Thanks for reading!

Bullies really are hard to deal with, I was bullied every year at school by these two guys for three years from 6th to 8th grade. Anyway I told my teacher and the guys got in huge trouble and now I don't have any problems out of them anymore:)

I don't have bullies at our school, because it's a private Catholic school. That's also why we have only one teacher per (multiple) grade. Im basically the funniest kid in our school so I'm pretty popular XD. I really love our school :D
I am sad that you have your troubles : (

Willy D said...

@ Isabella Nicole: O-O
@ Katie: I was bullied before, I was at a catholic all boys camp. Two brothers who were COMPLETE jerks, just took mustard and ketchup and poured it all over my dinner -.-
Well I went to the head of the vast room, and told the two priests, showing them my food. Well that have a huge they used to get all the boys attention for prayers, and they used that. There were about 320 boys there. They ALL looked at us, and the priests rebuked the brothers in front of everyone, making them say sorry, run 5 laps around the camp, and 50 push-ups. I was mortified from embarrassment. I had expected them to take the brothers aside. DX well, they hated me after that XDD

Stupid people like you deserve to be farmers.

Let's feed him! I wonder what flavor this one likes? Maybe logic, or maybe he likes sassy answers. Or maybe sarcasm is good food for this troll?
