Would you turn to a teacher if you were being bullied? Watch
If you had the option, would you or would you not turn to your teacher to talk to them about being bullied, even if you had spoken to other people? Let us know your thoughts 😊
Example: A friend at school was getting bullied and went to teacher etc and did it all the 'right way' - didnt work. They only stopped after he snapped and decked one of them.
At the end of the day, the only thing that's going to stop a bully from bullying you is fighting back, whether that be physically or verbally. If you fight back and the 'bully' still continues, then you're doing something to annoy the 'bully' and they aren't actually a bully. Whether their actions towards you are justified or not is another matter. Children and even adults are mislabelled as bullies constantly. The word 'bully' has zero meaning, it's a word that holds no context. You can describe whatever you want as bullying, and people will believe you even if it isn't bullying. I spent most of my time at school being called a bully by teachers even though I and other people who were also called bullies were just responding to this person AND I had verbally and physically fought with people bigger or older than me multiple times, something a bully would never do. Bullies go after people smaller or weaker than them, either physically or mentally, hide behind rules, skirt around teachers and convince everyone but their victims that they do nothing wrong. If teachers and many students call someone a bully on a regular basis, chances are they aren't a bully. Teachers DON'T KNOW about a bully's behaviour, otherwise they wouldn't allow it to happen. If they claim to know about a bullying behaviour someone apparently is part of, that person is not a bully.
Moral of the story? People teachers usually regard as bullies are not bullies in most cases, and they have it completely wrong.
Back to the question, like I said at the beginning, no. I don't get bullied because I don't allow it to happen.
Current teacher is a pervert
And here we have the reasons why!
I got pushed down stairs once
Wish I had done that—I was too young to think of that :/
I’ve been hacked by a classmate once too
I hacked him back
Overall? I'd do it again. Holy ****, the reputation and relation gains were insane: and I was already doing pretty well for myself in those terms. It stopped myself from being bullied as well as going out of my way to stop having more confrontations.
In general, fights are always going to happen. The current schemes in place are very weak, and highly untrustworthy. Should you fight it out? Sure, go ahead. I don't care; just don't lose.
If someone is being a bully they should get warned then expelled. But that is not what happens. It can go on years of the school warning and never putting their foot down.
Zero tolerance only works if it actually happens.
Secondary - God no, they aren't in a position to really deal with it, and I suspect many will be aware they can also be targeted for bullying (seen 2 teachers get their houses/cars smashed up, and there's nothing they could really do)
Not to mention some of them come out with utter nonsense "You should ignore the bullies! they're BAD!'
"I can't ignore them...there's 6 standing outside the gate, pointing and grinning, that ones swinging a chain,..."
Or the joys of an old fashioned teacher who blusters 'Hit the bully back! give them what for!" without actually thinking it through or following up, then you find out the 12 year old lashed out at a bunch of older kids and got utterly broken...when they really should have been trying to descalate or simply run.
No. The teachers are absolutely useless when trying to 'solve/insert' themselves in the situations. You might as well just sort the situation on your own, no need in getting third parties involved.
