Have you ever been bullied? Have you ever been a bully? Maybe you have been a bully without realising you were a bully.
I have a passion for trying to stamp out bullying (for my own personal reasons).
The feeling that one has when they are made to feel inferior to another, as a result of bullying is one of isolation, humiliation, frustration and even anger.
Today I came across this youtube clip that is inspirational. The clip is of two young boys who are auditioning for ‘Britain’s got talent.’ Before they perform one of the boys tells why he wrote the lyrics to the song they perform. Bullying can be a person constantly taunting another, or it can be a one off occurrence. No matter how, where or why it occurs it is imperative that as future teachers we listen to, pick up on and address bullying. I want to show this clip to future students to show them and encourage them to speak out against bullying. I am also adding this link to Tim Field’s web site ‘Bullyonline.’ Although the name suggests the web page relates to bullies online it is actually about all types of bullies and could be very helpful when identifying and dealing with bullies.
