Parents need to be alert to Bullying
Much has been said about bulliyng lately, mainly due to the events of recent months such as the case of the Realengo massacre in Rio de Janeiro, where in a "suicide video" left by killer Wellington Menezes de Oliveira, this one reveals bulliyng as being one of its motivations for crime. But what does this phenomenon really represent? What is the real consequence of this?
The phenomenon is old, but only about 30 years old it began to have special attention of the scholars, being subject of research mainly in Europe. Bulliyng
is an English word that refers to any type of aggressive, physical or psychological attitude, repetitive and caused without an apparent motivation, by one or more persons against another, or others. It can happen in any environment where there is interaction between people such as work, colleges, family relationships, neighbors and schools, where they have been well studied due to the possible negative consequences that this can bring to the lives of the students involved. Bulliyng at school
Bulliyng can have consequences for both the victims who may have depression and the aggressors who may become increasingly aggressive.
bulliyng in schools, can be direct and indirect. Since the direct is usually more practiced by boys and consists of direct actions of violence as the physical aggression, psychological, curses, robberies etc. Indirectly, it is more commonly practiced by girls and takes place in more subtle ways, such as through defamation and isolation of the victim. Bulliyng
victims suffer from being afraid to reveal the violence they have suffered. However, there are common signs that can be observed by parents, such as resistance to going to school, changes in sleep and appetite, low performance in school, among others. These signs should be observed carefully as they may be an indicator of the occurrence of bulliyng . Confirming suspicion, it is important that parents talk to their children, encouraging the subject at home and not I encourage you to fight back, as this could cause even more anxiety and pressure on the victim. Another crucial step is to communicate the problem to the school and to arrange for the problem not to continue to happen. Consequences
can have serious consequences for both victims, who may have depression and also suffer from low self-esteem in adult life, as well as aggressors who may become aggressive adults with difficulties in interpersonal relationships. Students who witness bulliyng are also negatively affected, often suffering from the fear and anxiety of being the next targets of the aggressors. However, it is important to note that people who have suffered bulliyng are not doomed to commit crimes and that, as in the case of Wellington Menezes, the
bulliyng may have functioned only as a trigger in a mind that already had serious psychiatric problems. In Brazil, there is still no federal law to combat bulliyng , which slows down and makes it difficult to take action. However, it is worth emphasizing that the best way to address the issue of bulliyng in schools is through prevention. Understanding and promoting the discussion of the topic among parents, students and educators can mean a great step towards positive changes.
