The Wounded Child Project

And Bully Police USA

One Child - Two Voices

Bullies, harassment and assaults are running rampant in Schools. Harassment, teasing, rivalry, ridicule, emotional or physical violence can lead to depression and low self-esteem, problems that can traumatize a child into adulthood and affect a student, and their family, for the rest of their life.  The act of being bullied tends to increase some student/victims' isolation because their peers do not want to lose status by associating with them, or because they do not want to increase the risks of being bullied themselves.

Here are some facts about bullying:

  • Three out of four students report that they have been bullied.
  • Ninety percent of students felt being bullied caused social, emotional, or academic problems.
  • Each year, 1 out of 13 kids under the age of 19 attempt suicide, a rate that has tripled in the last 20 years. Last year, more than 2,000 of them succeeded a staggering number that can be blamed largely on bullying.
  • Victims are mostly boys, but girls are increasingly being bullied. Bullying is reported as most severe in grades 7-9 with 4-6 next.
  • Sixty-nine percent of students believe schools respond poorly to reports of bullying and victimization.
  • Ridicule/teasing, verbal harassment, and practical jokes are the most frequently reported forms of bullying. Physical attacks are reported less frequently.
  • Forty-four percent of teachers believe disruptive school behaviors are getting worse.
  • Each month over 250,000 students report being physically attacked. One in five school students report avoiding rest rooms out of anxiety about safety.
  • A high percentage of students who are absent from school can be blamed on bullying.  Students have a high level of stress related illnesses when they are being bullied.
    • According to Webster's Dictionary, the definition of a bully is: an over-bearing person who tyrannizes the weak; intimidation. The definition of terror is: extreme fear; one who causes terror; to rule by intimidation. When a child is being bullied they know what a terrorist is... they experience it everyday at school.

      When a child is being bullied and no one comes to their aid, that child feels like their school doesn't value them as an individual. There are a lot of frustrated, hurt, and wounded children coming out of our schools today and we have let our children down by not doing anything to stop the bullying.

      The Wounded Child Project and Bully Police USA  - GOALS
       

      • One less child bullied in school is one child saved from a lifetime wound.
      • Prevent suicides, and school violence of all kinds.
      • Encourage positive interaction and problem solving between a bullied student and administrators.
      • Promote common sense anti bullying laws and policies - establishing justice and fairness for each student.
      • If necessary, provide a volunteer or funds to hire an attorney to represent a student victim of bullying.


      Personal Comments:

      When my son died by suicide as a direct result of bullying in his school, my grief was beyond words. Now, I wish to do all I can to prevent another parent from going through that same pain. Bullying, depression and suicide has no boundaries, no political party, no unseen agenda. It doesn't matter what sexual orientation, religion, color, stature, weight or height a student is; There is no excuse for bullying, and no one deserves to be bullied!

      "If you believe you're right... stand up and fight for your place in the sun. If you believe you can do it, hang in for the whole 15 rounds because even if you don't win, you will have earned the respect of everyone in the fight, including yourself, and in that sense you will have prevailed."   Erin Brockovich, Legal Assistant

    "One man awake, awakens another.

    The second awakens

    his next door brother.

     

    The three awake can rouse a town,

    By turning the whole place

    upside down.

     

    The many awake can make such a fuss,

    It finally awakens the rest of us.

    One man up with dawn in his eyes,

    Surely then multiplies."
