In recent months there has been a great deal said in the national media about bullying in schools around the country. In many cases there have been tragic endings to what started out as so-called typical bullying amongst youngsters. But bullying has become a universal issue that touches almost every person, family, school, business or community at one time or another. This is true regardless of age, gender, race, religion or socio-economic status.
Bullying has become more than just a “school” issue. It’s actually now a much broader community health and wellness issue. The effects of bullying can last a lifetime and can also result in the loss of life, quite often at a very young age. Most folks don’t realize that bullying can also take place in the workplace. But for now I am going to put my emphasis on schools and young folks.
Parents should never have to be concerned about sending their children to school. Neither should children be in fear or afraid to go to school because of bullying that is going on and may be directed toward them. It has been reported that bullying has become the number one non-academic issue that many teachers and school administrators face. Parents and teachers must become aware of the dangers that accompany bullying and learn how to deal with it. A Zero Tolerance Policy must be demanded in every school in this country.
