When we think of school, the first thing that comes to mind is the different subjects, grades, and your friends at school; now bullying has tagged along. Bullying has been around for many, many years, but has steadily becomes worse with time. Cases of bullying have spread all across the nation, and now more commonly ends tragically in a child losing their life. Some things we need to do to promote a positive school environment, and ensure the safety of students are: Provide more teachers per class room for mentorship, Pay more attention to the individual student’s behavior, and assist students in every way possible to ensure success. As a people, as parents, and as adults we must take bigger steps for our kids to run for success toward their future.

The first thing we need to do to fight against bullying is providing a mentor for our kids. Kids need role models to guide them the right way in life. We can’t just leave the wellbeing of our kids left to their parents, because just like the saying, “It takes a whole village to raise a kid”. That means it’s going to take the whole world of adults to ensure our kids are raised the right ways to succeed in life. Kids respond a lot better when that attention is forwarded to them. Having more teachers in the class rooms will help the education experience. Each student will not be limited to wait on one teacher to teach them. We, especially kids are different in many ways, and some require special attention, so that means not all kids are able to receive that attention with one teacher. More teachers in the classroom means more can create that home and family environment that all students may not have at home.

The second thing we need to pay attention to the behavior of students. A lot of kids tend to act out, because they want attention. There is always a reason for behavior changes, especially when it goes from good to bad, which is very serious. If we take more time to make contact with the feelings and emotions of our children, then we will be able to prevent acting out, which leads to bullying. We have that obligation as parents to use our experiences and wisdom of doing the right thing to share with our kids so that the same mistakes won’t be make or get worse. Paying attention to our students is the difference between success and failure for their futures.

The finally thing we, as parents and adults should do is to assist kids in any way we can. Our jobs as adults when it comes to kids are to teach, to guide, and to help them in their road to finishing school. School is always emphasized as being the most important thing for the success of a child future, but how can they be successful without us as adults setting them up for success? We need to do more for our kids, and create a better future free of bullying. We should assist the needs of our kids and students to ensure that they are all intelligent enough to know how wrong bullying is.

The things discussed that we need to ensure that bullying stops was: provide more teachers per class room for mentorship, Pay more attention to the individual student’s behavior, and assist students in every way possible to ensure success. I think that we have an evolving society should go to greater lengths and take care of us as people. We seem to be letting technology assume the role of not only upgrading life but ruling life. We should focus our time and energy toward the future of humans, our kids. Our kids are the inevitable future, and it’s up to us to guide them through their new lives, and share with them our experienced lives to one day become a successful world in the promotion of peace. To make sure that bullying becomes a legend , the past, and a forgotten burden of human life.

"If they don't have us to turn to or to listen, They will turn to death, because death always listens and death is always thing you can count on......Help life prevail instead; we owe that much to humanity".

      I agree, I was bullied when I was growing up and it lowered my self esteem and self confidence. It comes mostly from the family, parents or older siblings. I raised my kids, 2 girls and 1 boy in that order, to not bully and not let themselves be bullied. They are adults now with kids and grandkids of their own and as far as I know they raised their kids the same way. I will step in if I see anyone being bullied and I will not let myself be bullied anymore, even at my age. I have a hub, "Brave or Stupid", telling a story of where I stand on being bullied.

      Yours is a very worthwhile hub and a there are a lot of people that should read it. Greg
