identify at least two (2) strategies that parents and teachers could use in order to curb bullying and model a policy of zero tolerance of bullying within schools and homes, and also online. Provide one (1) specific example of each strategy.
School Bullying: The hardest issue with school bullying in schools, homes and online is to change the bully. Both the bully and the victim need to be healed from this pattern of behaviour. One strategy is for the bully's parents to alter their home parenting. Often the parents argue, trade threats and/or use violence in the home. The bully needs to be 'rewarded' appropriately for no bullying. Another strategy is for schools to set up classroom role play of bullying scenarios at school or online, for the students to discuss and manage such situations. One more strategy to heal the self-esteem issues for bully or victim can be a suitable Martial Arts program. The victim becomes more confident in handling bullying, while the bully finds a path to self-esteem, without victimizing others.
