Default The death of school bullying

New Jersey Enacts Nation's Toughest Law on Bullying - Yahoo! News

This will most likely give school bullying a slow and painful death...

Future generations in the United States (at least in New Jersey) might not be as corrupted as most believed that they would be.

About damn time they actually do something about bullying. Shame they didn't enact this law while I was still in school.

Now, if only this applied to the internet...

It would be good if they could track down the cyber bullies and hackers so that we wouldn't have to deal with them.

from my own experience

most bullying is conducted in seclusion

far from the watchful eye of authority

i wonder if this law will help anyone feel better about themselves

i don't see bullying ever stopping. it is present with every generation. it just seems worse now bc bullies have more ways to conduct their bullying via internet,text,etc.

It feels like the emotional/verbal abuse type bullies are the biggest problem now. obviously the physical bullies are a huge problem but i seem to hear more about the emotional terrorist bully more than a kid getting beat up.

I feel like that's why we're hearing about these young girls and boys committing suicide bc they were bullied...one can take a beating from another kid better than they can take emotional abuse from another kid. Proving that words are the harshest and most dangerous weapons a bully has.

how does anyone think they're going to stop that??? I hate to be a downer but i don't see it happening. i see it getting worse as generations of kids become more and more embedded with that entitled attitude.

Maybe i'm biased because i went to a school that had zero discipline, kids could beat up whoever they wanted and nothing would happen.
Not all situations come down to someone wanted to kick your butt. When I first started getting bullied it was just name calling. Which in itself seemed harmless to any teachers. But all the other kids in my class no longer wanted me to associate with them because I wasn't cool. I had to sit and eat by myself because no one wanted to be seen with me. This was just 3rd grade mind you and the start to all my ****ed up mental issues. In all honesty I would rather people had just beat me up.

There was a 'zero tolerance policy' on bullying the entire time I was in school, but that didn't stop anyone from ripping my self-esteem to shreds and beating the crap out of me during recess.
Bullying comes in so many different forms and it's a part of human nature- there's no way to stop it.

Teaching tolerance would be a great step up, though.

Is it? So we just give up on the children that can't learn to deal with bullying on their own, and develop mental illness, or committ suicide because of it?

I think there is a responsibility for schools to provide a safe environment for children to learn in. If they don't they should be made accountable for the damage their failure to protect can do to the lives of children.

I also think there should be education of parents, teachers and students to pick up on the signs of children that might be suffering from bullying before the serious damage is done.

Teaching children appropriate ways to cope and react to bullying would be also useful. There is no way children can be prepared for the physical and mental abuse of bullying.

A storm is comin, but storms need not be feared, when they pass, they may bring a change for the better.

Every now and again I step outside of the prison inside my head and I see how beautiful this world really is.
