I know there are a lot of Bullying Programs going on. I am having Axtell build me a little girl. I was thinking about doing a skit to show how she supports kids or herself that get teased.
When I was growing up, we had teasers, and we had bullying going on. Maybe there is really no difference. When I was a kid there was. The teasers picked and you could get even or out smart them as a way of getting back. The others were just down right mean, and needed a good knock up side the head. I guess I am telling my age.
I am hoping to do a skit with her using her head as a way of getting back that will not hurt anyone.
When I was growing up I got teased alot. I out smarted all but one. I ended up cleaning his clock. He backed off after that.
I want this little girl to be smarter at handling such kids.
Do you all call teasing bullying these days? Or is there still a difference?
I have a lot of ideas, but I am open minded for any thoughts you all might have. We may already be on the same page.
There is a recent bullying thread with a couple of posts, plus an older one with some ideas. I define bullying as "When someone hurts you, your feelings, or your belongings and they do it often and on purpose." That goes over the kids heads so I mention specifics later. Such as a person who takes lunches, (they used to take money but schools have a better system now), or a person who takes your pencils, or breaks your things.
I find it best not to teach little kids the word Bully because they will call everything bullying.
