Bullying I saw a lot of it and did some of it, also was greatly affected by it. Many of my friends were bullied often by friends and people they didn’t know; one of my friends was overweight. He was insulted by his friends by random people, and probably one of the worst people was me, I did it because I was often insulted by other people, because I acted pretty weird and was just different. I also saw a loner kid, who people messed with because he had some problems, people always insulted him and messed with him, but I never thought about helping him, because I didn’t want to never really crossed my mind. I was bullied a lot, 5th grade to 7th grade, I didn’t have a lot of friends I was really weird and my parents’ divorce was still affecting me. In 5th grade I was at a private school, It was a small class, I acted weird as it was and I made a change to my diet, I stopped eating sugary stuff and candy, and I told people about it, now just because I was different people decided that’s why I should belong with them, the school at my school Sacred Heart was kinda corrupt kids who had parents in the faculty, got special treatment, and bullying had few attempts to stop or even try to slow it down. At my middle school, Cabrillo, I wasn’t used to public school life, my old best friend saved me there from tons of bullying, but thankfully being a larger school I was more ignored then at my private school with a class of 30 instead of a class of 300 at Cabrillo, even though the school was larger bullying still affected me because private school somewhat sheltered us from kindergarten to 8th grade, but I got through it better than some other students from being conserved and not really talking that much. Then High school at foothill is good and bullying doesn’t really affect me much anymore. The School at Sacred Heart didn’t do much to stop bullying, it was easy to avoid getting in trouble by throwing insults around, and saying rumors, in a class of 30 it got around, but the school didn’t do much and they demanded complete respect of the adults, detention was given for even the most basic of consequences, I got a week for throwing a rubber ball at a girl, the school was unforgiving and overdid consequences, the school was also a bit corrupt the kids who had parents who supported the school or were teachers get extra benefits, which was unfair. Cabrillo tried to help but the kids didn’t cooperate with the school, because it punished us, how was it supposed to help us? It had meetings and stuff but they didn’t really do anything, It tried to help but even when it did it usually failed at it. Why children are mean to the weak? Children are human beings, humans are corrupt and power hungry, they want to be dominant, the weak are the easiest to pick on, to attack, the strong may be targeted but not nearly as much. I believe that kids aren’t going to change enough to stop this major bullying across the United States, kids lack respect for each other. The natural instinct is to get rid of the weak, which may have stayed with kids to pick on the kids survival of the fittest, kids are immature little assholes that are selfish, and I know I was one of them. I regret a lot of the things I did when I was younger but we can never take them back, all we can do is try to make sure the next generation doesn’t do the same. Adults want to make life in school comfortable learning enviourment and fun, but they usually don’t succeed at it, they try to make it better, but I doubt the school can make it much better, the parents can teach the kids, and help them learn how to deal with it but it is mostly up to the kid, this problem I think can never truly stop this problem. Adults will try and try again but I doubt they will ever be satisfied. I think the best thing to do is to make sure that this problem won’t get any worse, if adults can succeed in that it will be something, unless a school is dedicated to no bullying, this problem will continue to get worse. In the future I hope the kids will be more mature, and that this problem will not be as big, because these youth that create this problem are creating a waste in resources, and it is a problem that has to be reduced soon. The problem is only getting worse and I personally think adults should be celebrating if they can simply keep this problem from just getting worse.
