Bullying Lesson | Stand Up Against It!
Here’s a free lesson that will help children identify bullying, and teach them how to respond with Integrity!
The lesson begins by saying, “Today we are going to talk about bullying. Bullying is a word that most of us have heard. Often at school, at home, or even in the news we hear of the negative effects of bullying. But do you know what the word means? A bully is someone who is aggressive and mean toward others so that they can feel powerful. There are many types of bullying such as pushing, shoving, teasing, threatening, and name-calling. In recent years another type of bullying has occurred more often. This type is called Cyber-bullying. Cyber-bullying means to be mean and threatening through technology such as emails, text messages, Facebook, or Twitter. Whenever someone is mean and aggressive for the purpose of gaining power over someone else, they are bullying. If someone continues to repeat the behavior, they are a bully.The truth is, when a bully tries to feel more powerful by hurting another person they are simply proving that they are weak and insecure. We should all decide to stand up against bullying to make our school, community, and world a better place. Who is willing to stand up for what is true and good and right?”
