In my school bullying is done by the seniors. We are bound to do everything our seniors ask us to do. And if we cannot do them they give us punishments and also starts bullying.

In my school, there is a lot of bullying especially when my school is filled with only boys. One of my friends gets physically bullied every day for having a small body. My classmate keeps slamming his face into a table and untying his shoes. He still pretend like it's normal and my classmates keeps saying they were only kidding. I think that this type of bullying can damage someone's personality and the damage can be short term or it can be long term. Some people bring thetraumatic experiences until they are adults. I think that this type of bullying should be stopped. I think that my classmates who did this deserved to be kicked out of the school.

Hi santoso1234567,

 

We're really sorry to hear your friend is having this experience. Remember, it's very important to tell an adult that you trust, like a parent or teacher, when someone is bullying you or someone you know. We hope the situation gets better soon!

Bullying is very common in my school, but it looks like students take it like something normal, at least at my shcool. Students who are bullied seem to live a normal life but that´s not true.
What we can do to stop bullying is to make aware the kids since they are in kinder garden, probably they should take a half hour class every day about this topic.

Since I have memory in the schools where I have studied, there is bullying according to my country, that makes the boys have a harder character or they defend themselves, until there are hardly any cases like what has just been read in the article, it is terrible to know. We must stop it.

Stop!!!! Bullying Is Causing Depression and Suicide!

In my country, Korea, there are many people and students who bullying the other with these: physical, verbal, and social. Unfortunately, there were several bullying in my school, too. And I think WE can do something to stop bullying other friends.
First, the managers of Internet cafés, websites and blogs have to control and delete some vicious comments of actor or entertainer. There were several famous people who suicide.

And for parents, they should protect their children and make a limit of using the smartphone chatting and adding comments on someone's opinions. So I mean parents have to know if their children is being bullied, or bullying other people.

And at last, for students, you should report to your teacher if you know someone is being bullied. Tell teachers, families, and parents. There was student who was teached by my teacher at past, he was being bullied and had to transfer school.

So personally, I can strongly say that you should think another people's mind and tell the adults if someone's bullying. He/she will feel really upset and sad at that point.

In my school, bullying is common, I think the reason why are people bullying at my school is the difference, for example; different styles, different labels of shoes and many others.
Personally, I believe that parents should explain and guide their children about the importance of respect.

everyone has a good memory at school, but beside that it also has misfortune during that time. it not new to us - schools violence.
when I was a student, seeing so many cases of fighting in and out school. there is many reasons but in my opinion, the most outstanding is that this persons does not have good eyesight and looks bashful or weak and want to bullying them.
and a fairly common cause is the senior bully the rookies. when have some new students move to their school’s and they were beginning to bully them. bullied person felt intermingle and did not want to come to school.
what can school do to stop that? I of the opinion that teachers need to talk about the bad consequences of violence. regularly attention to their students when having signs of unusual comprehensive and should talking with them to prevent bad behavior.
if everyone unite to stop the school violence , everyone has a good memory at school.
( this is my writing, if having mistake with words or grammar
, please give me advice, thanks)

In my place, Primary School doesn't have the bully, but the Secondary School is maybe, it happened in my class, it was my classmate. I didn't know what did she do but the bully said don't play, don't talk, don't help and even don't smile with her. All the bully in my class is all bad study but fortunately, I have my friends, they like my sisters. I won't know what to do if I without them. But in general, if you being bullying, you need to find help with your good friends or teachers. I'll give you guys a "Fighting" for your school time. : )

Nowadays, bullying is a global problem and, Colombia isn't out of this issue. Here, bullying has increased exponentially in the last years. We can see this behavior principally in the schools, between partners and, sometimes among teacher and student. In our country, we have had some cases of suicide of kids and teenagers because of the bullying. Some programs to prevent bullying has been created but it hasn't been enough. In my opinion, this problem must be attacked from a general perspective. The programs to prevent and avoid bullying have to involve all the actors of the situation, the family, the students, and teachers. We should realize the psychological problems that can suffer who are submitted to bullying and, we should learn to respect all people and treat them in the same way we would like to be treated.

I think a main point to write correctly depends on the accurate use of linkers. They introduce sentences as well as separate ideas.
With regard to bullying, it really means a quite hard and difficult experience. Children or teenagers who suffer it must receive support from teachers, parents and mates

A few of my classmates got bullied by 2 boys and they complained of the boys last year.
This year, my friend got bullied by one of the two boys. In my opinion, I think bullying is bad for international schools or others and
The key is to stop the bullying, I think that We support the people who got bullied, respect and love each other.
Teachers should be aware of stopping the bullying in schools or their classes.

Bulling takes place where people feel stressed more or less.
Sometimes I come across people who are apparently impatient to bully someone just to work off. In such a case, I just keep off!
I don't feel I'm coward, but I feel poud, because I don't have to laugh the bully in their face! ;)))

In my school , there is a lot of bullying. But I doesn't get it ! Why are people bullying ? Only they have a another religion or another skin color. This is a very weird situation. I think people must realize what bullying is. And people must respect each other. That is the key to stop bullying.

Greetings, Greatest123

I don't have notice bulling in my school.Except one day that a boy made a comment about a girl's letter.He didn't want to hurt her but you can't be sure about how other people understand what you say.Bullying has to be stopped and I agree that teachers can do more about it.But I think that a person that has been bullied,has to ignore bullies.Talking to someone might help a lot.

Bullying is also common at my school,I think the reason why are people bullying at my school is the difference.People have different styles, different labels of shoes and many thinks like that.
I had been bullet at my school for once by some girls,The girls we're year 8 and I am year 11 .I did not want to argue with them to make it worse ,and also because they are younger,So I goes to my head of year and had told him everything what just happens.
My head of year sorted everything for my. Now I am grateful to my head of year that's I did not had to deal with it alone . My advice is, If anyone any where any time and any age is bullying you tell that to the person you trust to and ask for help .It has not to end badly .After the storm comes the sun.

Bylling is a serious problem in my school. There are many student who call other students name,or others that try to put somebody in conflict. They find it like a game,but they don't know how that have effected in the psychology or self-confidence. I think that teachers should be more strict with this problem and should try to solve the problem and inform the parents of both bullied and bullies students. However,even we should do something to make the bullied to feel better. We can stay with them and help them to pass this difficult situations. If we all were against the bylling,then I think the byllies wouldn't repeat this behaviuor. Bylling is a nigtmare,as is written in the end of the magazine,so we should get up immiedately.(in figurative way)

Hi sona,
Thank you for your message. It's good to hear that you find ways to help people who are being bullied. I'm really sorry to read that it's such a serious problem in your school. Could you find a teacher that you like and trust and tell him or her some of the examples of bullying that are aware of. It would be  good to get one of the teachers to see the situation from your point of view and to realise how serious the problem is. 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I think bullying isn't OK! We've talked about it a lot on our English lessons and I have also seen some bullying in my school. Bullies are pathetic and all you have to do is to ignore them!
