Everyone has gone through bullying no one is safe from it. Bullying at MHS is not as vibrant in MHS as in other schools, but students know it happens on a daily even if it is not witnessed by one. Tho it occurs it seems common for students at school to not go to anyone for help. Eliza Rubio, another student, explains that, “It brings down your confidence on how people will think of you. It affects your ability to do your best at the things you used to do. I didn't go to someone because I felt like I could just ignore it, but in reality it sticks to you for life”.

For quarter 4 I was really struggling on a book I wanted to read. I didn’t want a big one because I knew I wasn’t going to finish it. When I came across The Lying Game I was very interested because it was a bit of a mystery. I read The Lying Game by Sara Shepard. I thought this book was very good but, was very confusing at some parts. I got really confused when Emma found out that her twin sister Sutton had died because it didn’t give specific details about it happening. I chose to read this book because when I read the back it sounded really good and because it was a mystery.

Ryan was a 13-year-old boy who committed suicide amongst bullying. Initially, he experienced some developmental delays affecting speech and physical coordination in his early school years. He eventually overcame those delays but still struggled and school was never easy for him. When Ryan was 10 years old, he was bullying by a group of students at his school because of his learning disorder. His father first response was to ignore the boys because they were only talking at that point. Ryan moved up to middle-school afterwards and the bullying continued on and off for two years. Ryan told his father that the bullying had started again, and he asked for a Taebo Kick Boxing set for Christmas in order to learn how to defend himself. His father wanted to go to the school principal and sort things out, but Ryan wanted to learn how to fight, believing that complaining to the school about the boys would make things worse. After Ryan had learned to defend himself, his father told him not to pick fights at school. Ryan had a fight with a bully and after that the bully stopped bothering Ryan. At the end of 7th grade Ryan told his father that he and the bully had become friends. His parents said be careful because the bully had already been an enemy for a long time. Later on Ryan told the boy about an examination, and the bully used the story to spread a rumor that Ryan was gay. Ryan spent most of his time online which his parents weren’t warned about. He was cyber-bullied by
There are many times where we are observers of other people’s behavior whether negative or positive and do not give it deep thought unless the behavior impacts us directly. We may go about life with the belief that good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people. Then when a bad thing happens to a good person (or vise versa), we then take the time to analyse how can this be possible and whether it is fair or not. Now imagine that you are raising a well mannered child who respects others, but comes home year after year letting you know that she is being bullied at school. You then wonder what can your child be doing wrong to deserve this, what can she do differently, and you can’t seem to understand why your child who is a good person is having bad things happen to her. Bullying in fact causes serious health issues as well as social and it has been estimated that around 30% of children are victims of bullying in the adolescent years (Garland, Policastro, Richards, & Miller, 2017). In the past schools and parents did not look at bullying as an issue and many times the bullying went unnoticed because it was considered the norm and a part of growing up. In turn this can be a reason why people blame the victim for what happens to them and not the victimizer. When these thoughts cross our minds, we are participating in a Belief Just World Phenomenon.
