Is bullying prevalent in Austin Public Schools?
the “not at all” votes are the bullies, the “somewhat” ones are the kids that dont want to get beat up and the “very” are the parents.
Oh and “scary guy” didnt help anything… big waste of money and time.
Is there a school anywhere where “not at all” is actually a true statement?
How much worse is it now that kids are so connected. Remove the cell phone, Facebook and Twitter. It is another case of the schools being forced to handle what parents should be taking care of.
bulling used to be a good way for kids to learn conflict resolution skills. Now days it seems to be differnt. Im not sure if the kids are weaker and lack the mental strength to deal with it or if the bullying has gotten worse…… I would guess that the bullying has gotten worse due to all of the on-line social things that kids are into these days.
Teach your kids to be strong, have vigor, honor, selfrespect. teach them to stand up for themselves and others and they will be fine.
