Often times people believe that bullies do what they do because they are bad people. That is rarely the case, bullies sometimes have been victims themselves and lack the coping skills necessary to deal with their issues in a health fashion. Comedians Key and Peele examine this philosophy in a humorous fashion.
It is bullying awareness month! So I would like to take this opportunity to shed some light on the signs and symptoms of bullying. In addition, I would like to take a moment to talk about the pathology of a bully. As educators, we know our students, this make us the first line of defense with regard to bullying. Keep your eyes open and be aware, as you may save a child from the atrocities of bullying one day. Below is a list of things that you can do in your classroom to combat bullying.
