      The writer explain that bullying is a symptom of social impairment and mental development. Bullying have their own issues that need to be evaluated and possibly intervention. Writer suggest to reach out to bullies in order to find potential solutions for positive effects.

      A frustrated parent, Rathburn retaliate by confronting her son's bully and later got arrested. Many parent can understand Rathburn and may also feel they would have done the same. The natural instinct of protect their own. Still she hope to create a new policy or program that better handle these incidents before parent's retaliate.

    3. But what seems like the perfect solution, fining the parents for their bully-child, may actually make the problem worse.

      This potential solution may just backfires. In most cases, the bullied are silent about the incidents and parents of bullies may not care enough. In fact, they may bully their own child more for getting a fine. There are many potential negative effects like retaliation from the bullies and the continuing cycle of bullying.

    1. “I felt like it wasn’t taken care of and it didn’t feel any safer to me and it didn’t feel any safer to (my son),”

      In most cases, many parents in this situation can understand all too well with the safety of their child. According to the school, the case is resolved with a slap on the wrist for the offender. Amy and her son still feels unsafe. Jacob would have to go to school everyday with fear waiting for the next bad thing to happen. Aside from that, parents must also fear the risk of suicide and the mental well being of their child? The result of a case being "resolved."

    2. “I really assumed that because there was a death threat, that it would be taken seriously.” — Amy Simpson, mother

      I would assumed that everyone who reads this will feel some sort of way regarding threats and how serious it is. Amy Simpson, a mother of the bullied victim, had also ASSUMED threats to her child would be taken seriously. To read on that it wasn't makes me feel the indignation for Amy. As a mother myself, I would also assumed that serious actions would be taken upon the offender who physically, emotionally, and mentally abused my child. In most cases, parents of victims feel their cases is unresolved and still fear for their child safety. Why in this case was it not taken seriously when all lines are crossed topping it with the threats? Why?

    1. Educating the community, including students, teachers, administrative staff and parents, to prevent and address HIB of students;

      One of the most important ways to prevent HIB within schools is to educate the community about these types of incidences, consequences, etc. Although educating the community of updated HIB information is just one responsibility of the student safety team, it is one of the most important tasks that the SST can do to prevent severe incidences in schools.

    2. headaches, dizziness and stomachaches

      Especially at the elementary level, it is important to dig deeper into what is going on with a student if they are constantly complaining about these physical problems. The teacher may just send the student to the nurse to take care of their illness, but the illness may actually be caused by an act of bullying, intimidation, or violence. Therefore, teachers should be aware of the students that constantly complaining of physical problems.

    3. Bullyingis not a conflictbetween students or among groups of students. Conflictis a mutuallycompetitive or opposing action or engagement, including a disagreement, an argument ora fightwhich is a normal part of human development

      I think it is very important for students to understand the difference between conflict and bullying. Many students may dismiss their bullying behavior by claiming that they were just having an argument or disagreement with another student, when in fact that was not the case. Therefore, students need to understand when the argument or disagreement is not mutual and that they can be at risk of and H.I.B. investigation.

    4. behave appropriately

      Students feed off of adult behavior. If they see that a teacher is having positive interactions and supporting others, they will respond accordingly. If they see the opposite, they will think that mal-adaptive behavior and negative interactions are appropriate.

    5. A school-wide component centered on training, awareness, monitoringand assessment of bullying;

      I like the idea of having a school-wide component. Even though teachers may be required to teach and train the students, each teacher will teach the material differently. This may give some information to a group of students while other information will be given to another group. There is nothing wrong with different teaching styles, but I feel for something such as this, there needs to be some uniformity so that everyone gets the same information and is on the same page.

    6. solving

      Students have higher requirements put on them these days. There is so much pressure from others which stems from technology. It is important to focus on growth mindset, resiliency, and social-emotional learning in order for students to be set up for success and given the tools to help them.

    7. Training

      Training for HIB is so important because the development of technology greatly affects how schools approach HIB situations. It previously stated that online and off school grounds conduct can have consequences, but social media is making it so hard to contain.

    8. A parent of a student in the school; a

      I think it is interesting that a parent must be part of SST. I feel like it may become a conflict of interest at some point whether there are rules in place or not. I know they are not allowed to have records, but then maybe there needs to be a separate parent outreach team?

    9. 4% of the time there is adult intervention

      In the video made by Brad Currie he mentions that one way to avoid bullying is to stay near adults as bullying tends to happen when there aren't adults around. This makes me wonder if this 4% is coming from bullying incidents which were seen and ignored by adults on the playground or does this include all incidents in which case I would want to know of all the times that adults see the bullying happening how many times do they intervene? (That being said even if this stat includes the incidents where adults were not around the question becomes where are the adults? How are the students able to hide all of these occurrences?)

    10. schools are now required toaddress HIB occurring off school grounds, when there is a nexus between the HIB and the school (i.e., the HIB substantially disrupts or interferes with the orderly operation of the school or the rights of other students)

      I would imagine that bullying most often causes individuals to have a hard time at school, no matter the severity, so it surprises me that a school is ONLY required to address HIB if the student openly shows disruption in the classroom. I feel that if a student is being bullied by another student, on or off of school grounds, the school counselor or some member should address it, even if the bullied student has not shown signs of being bullied.

    11. , some students or groups of students are at higher riskfor bullyingthan the general student population. Appearance –The way a student looks or his or her body size and sexual orientation are the top two reasons cited for frequent harassment(GLSEN, 2009)

      Students are often bullied due to differences from a main group or what is perceived as a norm, and consequently physical features and sexual orientation are often subject to this. To combat this, I was thinking in schools we need to do more to emphasize that behavior that puts down others based on characteristics will not be tolerated.

    13. ut are not required

      I find it interesting that schools are not required to impose consequences for off premise conduct and are only required to if it interferes with the students daily operation at school. If a student is being bullied it still may really effect the student even if they are not showing signs of it in the classroom. If something starts off school grounds and then follows into schools it will keep snowballing. I think that more often, schools should be imposing consequences for off-campus conduct.

    4. A confession: I study the work of Aimé Césaire in the context of Caribbean Literature and History. I could not go to a digital humanities talk expecting everyone to be overly familiar with my area. Surely, I always find a few folks who are. I don’t study with any degree of depth the h
