when bullying happens in school the victim is always told to toughen up and deal with it, meanwhile nothing is done with the bully, the school system is a joke when it comes to this, yes stand up for yourself but also I don't think the other kid should get away with anything, its just making them want to do it more, and know they can do it more,
often times the victim is told -and im coming from a personal experience- "we have higher expectations of you"
well why not have higher expectations for the delinquent? if you don't , they aren't going to get anywhere in life and think they can get away with everything,
in my opinion I think this is also what has caused this generation to feel "entitled" because they aren't reprimanded growing up

I believe it has more to do with time-outs and not keeping score in sports.

Telling someone probably wont help bullying if you really want to do something about it become stronger and beat the shit out of the bullies thats pretty much the best way to go.

I was bullied to hell and back in middle school.

The teachers, even though they were told to speak up when they saw me getting bullied, didn't do anything. When my mom asked them why, they said they didn't "notice" the name calling and the mocking and all the "are you autistic"s and the "kill yourself lmao"s.

So when I finally stood up for myself after all this bullish!t, guess who got in trouble? Me.

The public school system is messed up.

There is various levels of it. The all infamous ones is the physical attacks. But now it seems it's all on online. Schools can't keep up with it sadly.

Well you can tell the school they were bullying you and its just self defense. Even if you get in trouble the feeling of revenge will make you feel better plus its unlikely you'll get bullied again, those are pretty much better then an hour detention.

Is revenge really worth it though? While it may feel good to get revenge, it doesn't make it right. Actions have consequences. I point you to a wonderful series known as Hell Girl that asks this question about revenge. The first episode is even about bullying. If you seek to "get back" at the bully what does that achieve? A short lived feeling of satisfaction? Well you basically brought yourself down to the bully's level. Yes, telling an authority figure probably won''t do any good either as they may turn a blind eye. How to deal with a bully issue can be quite the problem as it really gets you no where. You take action=you get into trouble. You tell authority=they turned a blind eye. Authority figures I think should take better action toward bullying and parents need to handle their kids better. Whatever happened to discipline?

Well its just my opinion there are the ups and downs to it. Plus kids these days just laugh when their shouted at, taking away their phones... now that works.

Fighting bullies is the most effective way to beat them. The problem is the teachers only want to punish the good kids and give up on the problem makers.

Lmao, that won't work everywhere I tell you that. Because if they truly love fucking with you, you winning one fight won't change shit. Depending on the area, they'll leave you alone, jump you, or bring in some gunplay.

Telling a bully to stop (like all educators recommend) accomplishes diddly squat.

You need to beat it into them.

Unfortunately, bullies don't learn not to bully by being punished by authorities. They only learn to bully smarter, and get away with it.

Not saying bullies shouldn't be punished, but they won't learn not to bully until people start to stand up to them. It is what it is. Also, bullies generally steer clear of those they've seen stand up to other bullies.... or if they're not sure they can handle that person.

I was bullied a lot when I was a kid... When I stood up to people, things got better, as a rule.
