Kids grounded in respect won’t bully others to get or maintain friendships and won’t stand by while others are being bullied. The following infographic can help kids (adults too!) learn the principles of self-respect. Yes, I agree to receive Bullying Epidemic's newsletter which contains news and promotional material.
Your book has been an incredible resource as I travel around and speak at events.  I have been able to feel confident in my statistics and knowledge thanks to you. Your New Living Magazine article on bullying and brain damage in children spoke to me and helped put things in perspective.
Your radio interview covered bullying from every angle – all the places it can occur, how to prevent it, how to deal with the bully, how to define it, how to form power circles, how to identify the environments to foster it. On the other hand, aggressive behavior on the part of parents is one of the major causes of bullying. Instead of making excuses as some of the writers here are doing, we should punish the bullies and make them face responsibility for their actions.It is the parents' fault if a child is a bully because they do not discipline him or her and it is also the fault of society for making excuses for bullying. In the meeting, there were 12 sets of parents, the principal, the superintendent, and the school counselor.
I write all of this to say that we don't always know why a kid is a bully or what is going on in their life. As parents we worry every day about how our children will grow up, and how our own choices will shape their lives.
Sadly we are seeing more and more young women feeling bad about themselves due to various forms of girl bullying as they grow and mature. Unfortunately the effect of girl bullying and self esteem often go on for many years past the initial bullying instance.

While this may be due to an individual weakness, it is often a result of parental modeling wherein belittling others is considered appropriate behavior. In families where a child is allowed to do whatever he or she pleases, the child does not learn adequate self-control.
When children observe their parents using aggression to gain control over their family members and neighbors, they adopt this behavior. They might resent the attention that another person is receiving from the teacher or the boss for a particular achievement. A homophobic individual might bully a gay classmate by mocking or physically harming him, for example. One of the toughest places we can be in as a mom or dad is the position of dealing with Girl Bullying And Self Esteem. From the societal standards pushed upon women today, to the peer groups that may make fun of or exclude our daughters – we are fighting targeted girl bullying more now than ever. Whether it is the lunch table or a group headed out to the mall, exclusion from the group can be one of the most common ways another person is bullied. This happens regularly to girls who are from lower income homes and are unable to wear the latest brands, or to those who don’t fit the societal mold of pretty. Whether it be a compliment used to insult, a prank call or even the old trick of having the “hot guy” ask them out on a fake date – girls can often play mean jokes on each other. To ensure your child has a strong view of themselves, make sure you are building them up and encouraging them regularly. It makes me sad that this still happens and happens more then we can control of often know about!! Some children learn bullying in homes where there is poor parental supervision and where aggression is used to engender obedience. Ideal breeding grounds for bullying behavior are family environments and other situations that model and encourage achieving goals at the expense of other people’s feelings. The lack of consequences for bad behavior empowers the child to dominate others in the home and at school. In these cases, it is difficult for school personnel to address bullying in the school environment because parental cooperation is needed to change the child’s behavior.

Bullying in this case might include spreading rumors about the targeted individual, calling him or her names or belittling the achievement. Likewise, a particular racial group might bully a group of a different racial background due to beliefs about the group’s inherent inferiority. Sometimes their personalities just don’t fit, but when it is done so purposely to put them down, then it is definitely a form of bullying. Whether it’s hair color, makeup or lack of, weight or chest size, girl bullying about appearance is one of the most widely recognized forms of peer abuse.
This form of bullying often leads to the victim hiding in the crowd to avoid being acknowledged. Being included in a group or one on one friendship only to have that friend turn their back on you publicly just to hurt you. In some cases, parents do not set clear limits for children because they themselves were abused as children and view disciplinary tactics as a form of abuse.
These behaviors are usually intended to reduce the popularity of the victim and bolster the bully’s social standing.
In all cases, it is believed that bullying is not an inherited trait, but rather a set of behaviors that can be curbed through increasing self-awareness, developing compassion, and learning anger management and conflict resolution techniques. Not only have incidents of girl bullying increased in recent years, but the consequences on women’s futures have changed drastically. Set a good example of how you view yourself and negate bad thoughts by showing her they are wrong.
In some cases, bullying accompanies prejudicial attitudes toward the victim’s race, culture, social standing or sexual orientation. We have created a society in which anyone can harass anyone else simply because he or she did not get enough sugar on his or her cornflakes. It’s no longer a point of simple lack of high school boyfriend and acceptance but a potential for abuse to be carried on throughout their adult lives as well.
