Greetings,

I was at the Keesler AFB hospital and noticed a flyer on Bullying. I found this interesting due to OUR line of work. Here is what it entailed.

BULLYING: Understanding the Behavior
Any kind of ongoing physical or verbal mistreatment in which there is an imbalance of power is defined as bullying. In other words, the bully is often a bigger and older child looking to “win” in any situation. The bully’s victim is usually upset by the experience, while the bully is either unaffected or is pleased by the victim’s discomfort.

Reasons Why People Bully:
•Lack of coping skills
•Poor anger management skills
•Lack of empathy skills with little remorse for the target
•Lack of impulse control
•Aggressive behavior patterns
•Attention-seeking behavior
•May have been bullied
•Power and control
•Boredom
•Jealousy
•Strong sense of entitlement
•Has been bulling behaviors successfully used by others/recipient of physical punishment
•Defiance and oppositional views towards authority
•Thinking that others control behavior/blaming others

Bullying Behaviors:
•Saying hurtful and unpleasant things
•Making fun of others
•Using mean and hurtful nicknames
•Completely overlooking someone
•Deliberately excluding someone from a group of friends
•Encouraging others to dislike someone
•Hitting, kicking or pulling hair
•Telling lies and spreading false rumors
•Sending mean notes

Teach Life Skills:
Because some children will be picked on for characteristics they cannot or should not change, it is very important for parents to teach their children life skills that can mean the difference between a full and happy childhood or one of constant dread and sadness. Teach your child not to be a victim or a bully.

Just thought I'd share.
