In John Cloud’s essay “The Myths of Bullying” he talks about the reaction that schools and states have to bullying. Cloud expresses his concerns for bullying and also explains the steps that people are taking to help prevent it.

Cloud’s essay not only tries to persuade the reader to his cause but he uses literary elements such as bathos and logos to appeal to and draw in the reader.
“Bullying can threaten students’ physical and emotional safety at school and can negatively impact their ability to learn.

“...1 in 3 teens [have] admitted to being a victim of cyberbullying…” says child psychologist, Eden Foster, in reference to a survey, talked about in “The Dangers of Cyberbullying” by Brett Warke, that shows the absolute significance of cyberbullying in this day and age. Cyberbullying on social media is everywhere and it’s about time that someone took some action against it, and, in this case, taking legal action via prosecution may be the best way to go. Let it not be said that cyberbullying and bullying are different, infact, the only difference is the platform they take place on. Cyberbullying is done with the same malicious intent as face-to-face bullying is done with: the intent to hurt a victim in a psychological or physical way- showing

Part A Summary The article “Why Our Approach to Bullying Is Bad for Kids” written by Susan Porter states the different consequences that may occur due to our culture’s views on bullying. The article suggests that by labeling children as “bullies” adults are not seeing a child’s full potential thus preventing them from reaching their maximum growth. Porter (2013) finds that throughout the years our society’s definition of ‘bullying’ has been molded into something much more than it was a couple decades ago, making it appear as though children who are behaving normally are actually the “bullies”.
Bullying has always been recognized as a normal part of growing up; therefore, most people in the past have not given bullying much thought. Bullying is often thought as “kids being kids” or a “rite of passage,” but it is much more of a problem than just being a kid (Maughan 2). According to the U.S. Deparment of Education, over 13 million students are bullied each year, and over 160,000 students avoid going to school because they are bullied (Maughan 1). Students who feel so threatened by bullying that they do not want to go to school demonstrates just how much bullying can change a child’s life. Bullying is a serious problem, and a child’s life could be dramatically changed by being terrorized at school. (Maughan, 1-2)
I believe that if a student is cyberbullied, there should be a punishment for it. If a child has been cyberbullied and has told a teacher about their situation, the student that cyberbullied should get a punishment. The punishment should be a suspension from school. It should be a suspension because if it was a detention or just a demerit, the student might not learn their lesson or feel bad about what they did. If the student continues to cyberbully, they should be suspended again but for a longer time. The student should also see a counselor or someone to help the students work out their problem.

In Chapters One and Two of The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystanders, internationally recognized speaker and author, Barbara Coloroso (2010), draws readers into the complex and tragic world of the bully, the bullied, and the bystander. In Chapter One she explains that she uses the terms the bully, the bullied, and the bystander not to lock children into labels, but instead to identify the role that the child is playing in a particular scene (p. 4).

Have you ever bullied someone before or are you a victim of being bullied? Well, bullying is described as an immoral and aggressive behaviour where it has an impact on one person to another. This is caused by people assuming they are dominant, superior in age or position. The bully also brings that unnatural anger on someone and tries to victimised them so that they can feel good about themselves. Bullying can occur in a range of places from schools to public places, even at home. Now these days technology is also a problem because of cyberbullying.

To be honest, bullying is a bad sign which results in lowering victim’s emotions and this may lead to mental illnesses such as depression and suicidal attempts.
