How to Prevent and Stop Bullying, and Where to Find Solutions and Help against Bullying?
By Shirley Tang
Cruel and dark. Sadly, this is how victims of bullying feel about the world they live in. They struggle to stop the bullying. But oftentimes only to believe that there is no solution or help for them to fight against bullying.
This is all REAL to them, until and unless an outside source can guide them to the light and help.
In the ideal world, bullying solution starts with the awareness of the bullying situation either by the victim or someone who cares about him/her. Like preventing a health problem, preventing a bullying incident from happening is more desirable than dealing with the aftermath.
Unfortunately, our world is not perfect. Awareness and prevention of bullying are simply not enough. Too often they cannot stop the bullying, nor the unthinkable ultimate aftermath of bullying – suicide.
Ironically, schools – where children are supposedly protected and safe – are where they face the most bullying against them. In worst cases, not only they are being bullied, some can be arrested for defending themselves due to their school's zero-tolerance policy against fighting.
The following is an expansive list of helpful anti-bullying resources for parents, children, and educators. These resources include: awareness on bullying, as well as prevention, solution, and immediate help against bullying.
