Almost All Young People See Bullying Happen At Some Point
𝐃𝐢𝐝 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐊𝐧𝐨𝐰…? 🤔
Almost all kids see bullying happen at some point. They may not be getting bullied nor the ones doing the bullying, but witnesses are just as important. Their reactions can have a direct impact on the situation.
A bystander to bullying is anyone who witnesses bullying. Whether it’s in person, or in digital forms such as: social media, websites, text messages, gaming, and apps. 📲
When bullying occurs, bystanders are present 80% of the time. Even just one bystander has the potential to make a positive difference in a bullying situation; particularly for the child who is being bullied.
When those that are bullied are defended and supported by their peers, they are less anxious and depressed. 𝘞𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘣𝘺𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘶𝘭𝘭𝘺𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘦, 𝘣𝘶𝘭𝘭𝘺𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘱𝘴 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯 𝟷𝟶 𝘴𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘴, 𝟻𝟽% 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦.
