Posted on Actualizado enn


Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior that is intentional, hurtful, (physical and psychological), and/or threatening and persistent (repeated). There is an imbalance of strength (power and dominance).

The above definition includes the following criteria that will help you determine if a student is being bullied:
    •    The mistreatment must be intentional.
    •    The mistreatment must be hurtful (physical or psychological).
    •    The mistreatment is threatening, The individual fears harms.  Fear their safety.
    •    The mistreatment must occur more than once. However, some disagree with this.
    They say one very hurtful event is enough to label it bullying.
    •    There must be a power imbalance.
Bullying is a growing concern, it can progress and it can easily cause depression and can lead suicide.

Nobody likes to be picked on.  What can you do?
    •    Speak up against bullying. Say something like, “stop it.”
    •    Walk away. Act like you do not care, even if you really do.
    •    Tell an adult you trust. They may have ideas about what you can do.
    •    Stick together. Staying with a group might help.

Things to remember if you are being bullied:
    •    You are not alone.
    •    It is not your fault. Nobody should be bullied!
    •    Talk to someone you trust.  
    •    Do not hurt yourself.
    •    Do not bully back. Do not bully anyone else.
    •    Do not let the bully win.  Keep doing what you love to do.

El acoso escolar amenaza a casi un 2 por ciento de los niños españoles

En España, se estima que un 1,6 por ciento de los niños y jóvenes estudiantes sufren por este fenómeno de manera constante y que un 5,7 por ciento lo vive esporádicamente. Los datos varían en función de la fuente de la que procedan y del enfoque a la hora de estudiar el fenómeno.

Una encuesta del Instituto de la Juventud (INJUVE) eleva el porcentaje de víctimas de violencia física o psicológica habitual a un 3 por ciento de los alumnos. Y afirma que un 16 por ciento de los niños y jóvenes encuestados reconoce que ha participado en exclusiones de compañeros o en agresiones psicológicas.

El Defensor del Pueblo señala que el 5 por ciento de los alumnos reconoce que algún compañero le pega, mientras el Instituto de Evaluación y Asesoramiento Educativo (IDEA) indica que un 49 por ciento de los estudiantes dice ser insultado o criticado en el colegio, y que un 13,4 por ciento confiesa haber pegado a sus compañeros.
