Bullyingis a problem that has been increasing over time. Bullying is a social problemthat will not be very easy to end with, but we can help lower the impacts andthe statistics of victims being bullied, but hardly solve this social problemcompletely. For example, “In schools where there are bullying programs bullyingis reduced by 50%” (Solutions for Bullying). This proves that there is a way tosolve bullying. If all the schools would do bullying programs, or at leastlittle talks about bullying and its dangers, then the rates of kids beingbullied would change, for good. Another example is, “Every 7 minutes a child isbeing bullied; 85% of the time, there is no intervention of any kind.”(Solutions for Bullying). This citation also proves the importance thatschools, parents, or any type of guidance of the kids, more into the life ofthe kids and open more towards them, so that the kids can trust and speak withthe type of guidance that the kids are consulting to.
By doing that, we candecrease the statistics of bullying, and leaving schools, like a safeenvironment to learn and to share knowledge. The way youwant to handle bullying is really up to you. You decide what you do to controlit but here are some suggestions.
