I'm Gemma and I have run FS2B for about 8 years. Bullying is something can effect each and everyone of us. We can get bullied as youngsters, or in the workplace or we we can have children who are bullied. Bullying can effect everyone around them. In recent months we have seen the different forms bullying can take, physical, verbal, cyber & happy slapping. Sadly if bullying isn't stopped as soon as possible it can progress to workplace bullying, domestic violence and much more.
So what is bullying?
According to Wikipedia bullying is :
Bullying is a form of abuse. It comprises of repeated acts over time that involves a real or perceived imbalance of power with the more powerful individual or group abusing those who are less powerful. The power imbalance may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a target.
Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse - emotional verbal & physical. Bullying can be defined in many different ways. Although the UK currently has no legal definition of bullying,some US states have laws against it.
Bullying can occur in any context in which human beings interact with each other. This includes school, church, the workplace, home and neighborhoods. Basically bullying can happen anywhere at anytime.
The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) defines bullying as:
“Behaviour by an individual or group, usually repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group, either physically or emotionally.”
Bullying can take many forms: from teasing and spreading rumours to pushing someone around and causing physical harm. It often happens in front of other people.
It includes name calling, mocking, kicking, taking belongings, writing or drawing offensive graffiti, messing around with people’s belongings, gossiping, excluding people from groups, and threatening others.
