Cyber Bullying a Problem at JHS

Bullying has been a growing problem over the years, so what can we do to stop it? Bullying has increased 32% over the last 4 years. Why has it increased so much over the last couple years? Bullying has increased dramatically because of the impact and growth of technology. Technology is a big part of our lives on a day to day basis. This is increasing from the rising popularity in social media in the youth of these days. Social media creates a trap to youth by what they post. It can be incredibly hard for a teenager to be bullied by someone for what they post. We should be able to post what we wish and not be judged by it. This is only one example of bullying, there are plenty of ways a kid can be bullied.

Why do people bully others? People bully others to make themselves feel better. Why does bullying help others feel better about themselves? It makes them feel better about themselves because they feel insecure about themselves so they believe that being mean and putting someone down will fix some of their problems. It won’t. That’s why I need you. You have an impact on everyone around you. You can make a change. Don’t let someone bully you, stand up for yourself, and definitely don’t be the bully. If you need help there is always someone in your life you can just talk to and if you don’t then go talk to the school counselor. Be happy, be the good in the world, and don’t put others down.
