About Bullying

The phenomenon of bullying is not new - it has been with us forever. Each of us remembers a weaker friend in the class. A sucker that was easy to laugh at. Some of us have experienced it ourselves and know firsthand how unpleasant and terrible such an experience can be.

Recently the scale of peer violence is gaining momentum. The media reports only about the most drastic cases - suicides, school shootings. In the shadow of these reports, millions of children silently endure humiliation and suffering - and then there are parents, educators, guardians. Wanting to help, but often helpless, not understanding the causes, scale, and consequences of this phenomenon. What we need is knowledge and tools.

The Consequences of Bullying

"It was just a push," "but we only joked," "after all, nothing happened" - these often heard explanations do not actually explain anything. We must understand that the consequences of peer violence are terrible and often long-lasting. Some of them are:

  • Lowering of self-esteem
    "If nobody likes me, apparently I am nobody" - such and similar opinions can be heard from the mouths of bullying victims. Are they right? Of course not, but this belief can ruin their entire lives
  • Deterioration of school results
    Imagine how difficult it must be for a child to develop and learn in a hostile environment, considering that for a young person the social environment is much more important than for adults?
  • Depression and psychological problems
    Continuous anxiety, tension, and prolonged stress can translate into health problems. Not only physical ones, like pains or insomnia, but also psychological: depression, isolation and more!
  • Exclusion from peer groups
    Persecuted children isolate themselves and cut themselves off from friends, easily falling victim to subcultures or sects. Can you blame them if their daily environment turned out to be dangerous?
  • Problems with relationships in adult life
    Bullying victims have a deep-rooted distrust towards people. They do not believe that they can be worth someone's love and respect. It can interfere with all their future attempts to establish relationships!

And these are only some of the consequences that bullying victims face! That is why we must do everything to protect our children and provide them with a carefree youth. We cannot hide behind ignorance!

If you are worried...

  • Whether there is harassment in your child's school: Are you sure that your child's school is safe? Does he pay sufficient attention to how other students treat each other? Do children trust their school, teachers, and educators?
  • Whether your child would be able to cope with bullying: Not only as a victim, but also as a witness to violence? Children who are witnesses to abuse lose their faith in justice and in their own ability to deal with evil!
  • Whether you would know how to help your child: Would you be able to have a proper conversation? What to tell your child so he/she can feel real support? What tools to equip them with so that they can cope with violence?

Who is this course for?

Our course is designed for all people who are interested in the wellbeing of children - sensitive and trusting young people who are exposed to the brutality and vulgarity of the world every day, and who are victims of their stronger, ruthless peers.

We recommend the course especially to parents who have noticed disturbing behavior in their children, such as fear of peers or reluctance to go to school. We will help in determining whether bullying is the reason for such behavior, and if so, how to help your child and prevent further events.

We invite other people who may be interested in solving the problem of bullying - in particular teachers and educators – to use the course. Equipped with the right knowledge, it's easier to help your students deal with the increasing levels of brutality among teenagers.
