Bullying and Popularity

Dear Readers,

          I have recently been reading the article The Least Popular Aren't the Only Targets in School Bullying, Study Says.

Teens Getting Bullied

          One of the main ideas are that teens are getting bullied. "Nearly a fifth of teens are getting bullied." My thinking for this main idea is that kids should just tell a teacher when they are getting bullied, which they don't do.

Thinking Bad Things

          Another main idea is that when kids get bullied they get upset and think that they are going to kill themselves. "Bullied kids can suffer from feeling of sadness, increased worries and thoughts of killing themselves." My thinking for this main idea is that the kids that are getting bullied should ignore the bully if he is saying mean things that the kid should just ignore the bully or if the bully is punching the kid then he should fight back.  

Friends With The Opposite Gender

          The third main idea is that if  you are friends from the opposite gender then you won't get bullied. "Some students found protection; being friends with teens from the opposite gender provided some sort of shield." My thinking for this main idea is that i think that the bully knows that the person who is with them will stick up for them.

  1. Well I congratulate you.You did a great job for learning the article and writing it in your own words.You did great for providing evidence from the text and knowing what will probably happen if you get bullied.Here is a question Peyton what would you do if you saw someone getting bullied would you stand up for them or just walk away? That is something you could think about.
