Do you all remember the pomp and grandeur when our honourable Minister of Education launched the Kempen Anti-Buli? Huh? Remember? I wrote this on March 9th. Today is almost end of June.
I surfed over to the website and it remains as pathetic as three months ago. Nothing was being updated. No educational materials that we parents can refer to. Nothing that the students can learn. For what good is a website when it has absolutely nothing?I took the initiative to find out materials for anti-bully and put them on my parenting site.
I know that many students do stumbled upon my sites whenever they do research. In fact, my eldest son’s school friends found out about my blog while they were surfing for materials related to handphones in school. I hope out there, some victims may find these information useful. I had just added a whole category related to school bullies. It is time we parents do something. The situation is so sickening.
Police usually intervened. This seems so wrong! Parents are normally very confrontational. What if the bullying case involves children of different races? I am sure things can get blown out of proportion.
In short, there is one good advice (for parents with children who bully):
* Spend more time with your child. Sometimes children bully because of their own sadness, anger or after being bullied themselves. Make special time to find out more about each other.
When you get closer to your child you may find theyâ€™ll share the worries behind their bullying behaviour and your understanding will help them through. (source)
Simply rushing in to the school and demanding action from the Head is not necessarily the best tactic.
Gah! I am so mad. We are thoroughly clueless when it comes to dealing with our children. Go watch this video and tell me you are angry too. Whose fault is it? The whole nation. That’s what.
