Information about me and the website
Hi, my name is Dalila. I go to an IB school. For my PYP exhibition, I inquired in to bullying. I chose to do bullying because I was bullied for 4 years. I felt that children shouldn't go through the same thing that I went through. The purpose of my website is to offer access to the best resources on bullying and spread it across the globe. On the page our creations is a song that I made, and other creations that other students made about bullying in our school, like books, songs and more. The goal that I am trying to reach is to educate young students about bullying, because if they ever get bullied they will know how to stop it.
Taking more Action
In May 2013 I performed at TEDxYouth@BIS. There I performed a speech about bullying and I sang a song that I wrote. The speech I wrote with my teacher and my song I wrote with my dad. This experience was a great one and I learned so much from it. The video is below.
What is bullying?
Bullying is unwanted agressive behavior among school aged children. The behavior is repeated. All kids involved may have long lasting consequences. In order to consider it bullying the behavior must be repetitive. It is an imbalance of power that they use.
causes of bullying
Bullying is caused by many different reasons. It can be caused by jealousy, the bully was bullied, the bully doesn't learn that bullying is bad, the bully wants to impress someone or wants attention. Maybe the bully has mental problems (anger issues), maybe the victim had bullied the bully before the victim became the victim, maybe the bully just wants to be mean, maybe the bully enjoys watching the people suffer. It keeps on happening if the victim does nothing about it and if people don't help.
