I am glad to see you are taking up such an important issue for your persuasive essay. There are multiple reasons why children should not bully. Children who are involved in bullying (as a bully, victim, bully-victim, or bystander) are more likely to have negative consequences compared to their peers who are uninvolved in bullying. These consequences include being more at-risk for depression, anxiety, poor academic performance, and loneliness for victims which can continue to be a problem throughout their entire life. Those students who engage in bullying behaviors are more at-risk for alcohol and drug use, dropping out of school, and committing a crime. Bystanders often have feelings of helplessness when they witness bullying. These feelings can lead to anxiety and depression depending on how strong these feelings are for the bystander. There are many helpful resources here on Education.com for more information.
Kids bully for many reasons. Some bully because they feel insecure. Picking on someone who seems emotionally or physically weaker provides a feeling of being more important, popular, or in control. In other cases, kids bully because they simply don't know that it's unacceptable to pick on kids who are different because of size, looks, race, or religion.
The problem with preventing bullying completely is that it would violate the 1st amendment. Even if you somehow monitor everything the kids say to each other in school and prevent kids from making negative comments about each other on the internet with the cooperation of Facebook you cannot stop what is said in public. Stopping cyber bullying would be a step in the right direction but very difficult if not impossible. Kids will just find new ways of doing it.
You can put huge punishments for it so bullies fear from punishment..
To answer your question specifically, I would say no! We don't feel the way you feel. In our household, first comes school work and then everything else! Everything else is a privilege! In fact, even school is a privilege! If our children are fortunate to go be able to get good education and live a good life compared to millions of children around the world who go without food let alone school, it's a privilege and I believe my chidlren should know that!
Homework comes first (if I wasn;t clear earlier!! :) Cheers!
There are many reasons why kids bully each other. The first one and the main is that bullying is something they take from home, from their parents behaviour. Also, some kids can be more aggressive,have more impulsive nature then other children and such character leads to bullying. Bullying can be a result of low self-esteem or lack of parental care.
Here are the general tips on your topic. You may rewrite them and structure in the essay.
Tell them you want to talk to them privately about the incident and that one other person will be present. (Ensure that the 'other person' is a neutral individual who will be a reliable witness.)
At the meeting, tell them why you think this behaviour is a bad idea. Don't make accusations or bring emotion into it.
Tell them what you want them to do instead in future.
Tell them why this will be better for both of you.
Seek agreement with them that things will change.
