Anti-Bullying Campaign (NP)

          Not many students think about the bullying, and thats a part of the problem. Bullying is one of the biggest problems today for teenagers.Bullying can take place’s from being at school to social media. People who condone bullying are just as bad as the person bullying the victim. Bullying can vary from being physically, mentally, and emotionally abusing. As a whole, we need to put a stop to bullying around the world and speak up !
Bullying is a challenging subject to talk about, especially if you have been or are being bullied yourself. When a victim is being bullied and people around them are laughing or paying attention to what the bully is doing, you are entertaining the situation. As a bystander you should stop the negative behavior and stick up for what is right. For example, when you are walking down the hallways and see someone being called a name or getting pushed around, you should either tell the bully to stop or get an adult to stop the situation. The biggest problem with teenagers and bullying today is most teens want to be the cool kids and fit in with everybody else. This causes kids to not want to tell an adult because “snitching” is what causes everyone to not like you or to not be your friend anymore.Fitting in and being cool also affects teenagers or kids in school to not speak up for the victim getting bullied. This also causes a lot of anxiety, pain, depression, or stress for the victim. As a bystander you are a part of the problem because you are not saying or doing anything about the problem. Bullying is one of the biggest problems with teens in society today and we need to change that.
One time, I was in the 6th grade and I was involved in a lot of drama. My friend and I were on Facebook and the girl was saying mean things about us in her status. Instead of me ignoring the situation, I said something back to her,which caused the argument to go on and on. Then she was making physical threats to me and stated that she wanted to fight me in school. My friend then told my mom about the situation, which caused my mom to look at my facebook. On Monday, my mom went to my school and reported the problem. This caused the girl to switch classes that my friend and I were in. At first, I was mad at my friend for telling my mom, until I realized that she was doing what was best for me and to get me out of negative behavior, I realized what a true friend was. Till this day I remember what she did for me and how she spoke up and stopped the conflict. This is what bystanders who witness bullying on the internet, at school, or anywhere should do. It is not okay to do such things to other people. I still remember the insults she made to me that hurt my feelings because it still stayed with me to this day. We should truly put bullying to an end and stick up for what is right, it takes one person to stop the violence involved with bullying.
