Simple Solutions to Stop Bullying

Most people can share at least one experience in their lives where they were bullied or saw someone else being bullied. It is a proven fact that some people enjoy hurting others. The reason for this is that they have not been taught how to develop a positive, moral character.

Everyone deserves the right to be safe and develop friends. When a person takes these fundamental rights away from another, causing hurt and harm, that person is called a bully. There are simple solutions to put an end to bullying in schools across the nation, and in society as a whole. When these solutions are followed people can enjoy peace and safety, and have positive relationships that can last a lifetime.

  • If you are a bully think about your actions.
  • Realize that hurting others is cruel and unacceptable behavior.
  • Teasing, picking on, or physically causing injury to someone can affect the individual for a lifetime and does not build a positive reputation for the bully.
  • All people, no matter the age, social status, culture, or religion, desire and deserve to be treated with respect.
  • Every human being has value and the potential to succeed in life.
  • If you witness bullying do not stand around watching, but get help immediately.
  • Then proceed to learn the name and address of the bullies and request a copy of the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program on bullying.
  • If you are friends with someone who chooses to hurt others and you go along with it, not reporting it, then you are guilty by association.
  • If you are being bullied make every effort to never retaliate. Two wrongs do not make it right. Be determined to handle the situation in a non-violent manner.
  • The bully and the victim deserve the chance to solve this problem.

There is a simple solution to stop bullying and it is called the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program. When people can be trained how to treat one another fairly and respectfully, no matter the social, ethnic, or religious differences, then positive interactions are a guaranteed result.

Think Of The Consequences

You have blown your top, or you feel like blowing your top. The proverbial smoke is pouring from your ears and your fists are curled into a ball. Oh, Oh! Your mild sense of aggravation has blossomed into outright rage.

Will blowing your top accomplish what you desire to accomplish out of this situation, or any situation? Obviously something occurred that caused the upset.

Your desire should be to remain a leader. How you handle any problem can either lift you up or bring you down. You can in every case bring yourself up as being the solver of each and every problem if you follow this simple lesson and develop self-control.

With self-control you can make a choice even when you feel upset or angry. You do not have to sink into the depths of saying or doing something, out of rage, that you will only regret once you have calmed down.

Self-control helps you to stop the progression of anger long enough to choose to handle it appropriately. Yes, you can handle anger appropriately so that it does not turn to rage. Here are a few tips:

  1. Keep in mind that anger that is out of control, can lead to dangerous choices. So your main goal is to stay in control.
  2. Understand that anger and what we do when we are angry is a choice. The old, “I was so angry I didn’t know what I was doing”, is only an excuse. We are accountable for our actions whether we are angry or not.
  3. Know your anger cues: rapid breathing, and increased heart rate, should be a red flag. These cues should immediately send you into self-control mode. Self-control is to stop and think about your options and then proceed with a right choice. A right choice does not cause harm or hurt to yourself, others, or property (No, slamming the phone down and rendering it into four pieces is not acceptable)
  4. When you feel these anger cues it is time to STOP your anger progression. THINK about the consequences of your actions. Are you at work? Could venting your rage in your work environment cost you your job? Are you at school? Could venting your rage at school result in suspension or expulsion? Could someone be hurt or property destroyed because of your rage? Could your angry outbursts cause you to lose your self-respect? Really take the time to ask yourself these questions and THINK of truthful answers. Don’t downplay the consequences that can result from one bad choice.
  5. Once you have thought it through proceed with a right choice. Yes, you can experience moments of extreme frustration, aggravation and even rage and come out smelling like a rose. Try practicing self-control it really does work.
