School Bullying


School bullying has become a common problem in our learning institutions. Bullying is aggressive behavior present in schoolchildren which is characterized by an imbalance power and reputation. School bullying comes in many forms such as name-calling, kicking, gossiping, and hitting among others. A substantial number of children according to different studies are bullied something that affects them psychologically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. Studies have failed to develop sound reasons as to why children are being bullied and proper measures on how to deal with this challenge. This paper develops four goal statement and their specific outcomes in order to give a clear understanding on the issue of school bullying in the society especially to school children.


Bullying affects everyone in the society either direct or indirect. Those who are bullied, the bullies, and even those who witness bullying are victims of school bullying. Evidence shows that school bullying has negative impacts such as suicide, substance abuse, and mental health that poses great dangers to parties involved. Parents and teachers plus the entire society should intervene the issue of school bullying and help develop proper strategies to deal with the challenge. School bullying requires proper measures and strategies on how to deal and stop the situation, (Kim et al., 2006).


The first goal statement is to determine the population that is being bullied. It is with no doubt that children who are being bullied do experience negative mental health issues, school issues, and physical issues. The main goal in this statement is to examine, understand, and have a clear picture of kids who are bullied. In this section, the target population is the kids who are seen as the victims in the bullying activities. This goal statement will take duration of around three weeks. Key results expected in this section include anxiety and depression impacts that kids come across when they are bullied. The section will also evaluate on the health complaints present in bullying and how it affects the growth and development of kids in their learning environment. Evidence shows that a small number of kids who are bullied have the potential to retaliate through violent conditions, (Kim et al., 2006).


The second goal objective to be obtained is the kids who bully others. Experts have developed different studies in order to fully understand some of the reasons that drive some kids bully others. It has been discovered that a number of reasons contribute to schoolchildren bullying activities. Having in mind that there are some factors that contribute to school bullying, the target population for this section will be kids who bully others and teachers in the learning environment. Apart from bullying others, bullies are exposed to dangerous situations that can affect their life. Bullies in the short run feel as if they are hero, but in the long run they engage in risky and violent behaviours when they become adults. Addressing why kids bully others will have provided a suitable platform for solving and developing strategies to deal and end the issue of bullying in the society, (Kim et al., 2006).


Another goal objective to be obtained is on the negative impacts bullying activities have on bystanders. In most cases, people think that bullying of kids only affects the victims. The target population for this section is children who witness others being bullied. Parents of bullies and the victims will be part of this section’s population. Two weeks will be enough for developing study for this section and understand some of the key challenges that affect those who are witnesses of bullying activities. Based on the past studies, it has been discovered that kids who witness bullying activities become victims of the situation because they think they will be the next target. This make them increase their use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco in order to deal with that fear. They also miss and skip school whenever they have a feeling they are going to be bullied. Depression and anxiety are some of the negative mental health problems that have developed to bystanders due to bullying activities, (Kim et al., 2006).


 The last objective goal to be obtained will be on the relationship that exists between suicide and bullying in the society. Bullies, those who are bullied, parents, teachers, bystanders, and the society will form part of my population for this section. This section will take a period of four weeks. The period will allow get enough and relevant information to evaluate and examine the problem of bullying and how it is connected to issues of suicide among students. Reports from media usually link bullying and suicide among kids in school. Bullying alone is not a factor that can contribute to suicide, but it contributes to the development of other factors such as trauma history, depression, and mental health issues. When these factors combine, they develop a suitable environment which facilitates suicide activities, (Kim et al., 2006).
