Delprøve A 1. Summary of When the Bully Is a Sibling
When the Bully Is a Sibling is text by Anahad O’Connor from The New York Times, who writes about how fighting and bickering between siblings, as we will call normal sibling arguments, can cause psychological abuse. Researches proofs that fights between siblings damage as much as if you were been bulling in school or playground, and it should be taken much more seriously. The families don’t acknowledge the fights, punched and kicking between the siblings and the parents thinks that the children might find it out. People think that if you were been hurt by a child, it doesn’t damaged as much if you were been hurt by an adult, but it isn’t truth.

2. Give an outline of the positive and negative aspects of sibling rivalry as presented in texts 2 and 3
Outline of A nasty case of sibling rivalry and Sibling rivalry lead to success and popularity in later life. I will describe the positive and negative aspects of sibling rivalry between texts 2 and 3.
In the article by Joanna Briscoe, A nasty case of sibling rivalry describes Joanna that sibling rivalry was daily for her and her brother. “To us, the conflict was a matter of life or death” (p. 4 l. 10-11) The fights was very dangerous. They were beating each other to the ground because of jealousy, and they were scared to be left. “Underneath all this is the fear of being rejected or abandoned by their parents (…)” (p. 5 l. 45-46) Karen Doherty says that “Four out of five siblings will torment, kick, punch, fight and annoy one another at some point during childhood” (p. 5 l. 77-79) Joanna Briscoe wants to apologize his brother, but she says that he should say it first.
In the article by Rosemary Bennett Sibling rivalry leads to success and popularity in later life describes Rosemary that the fight between siblings appears to be good. The arguments make…...

...Confrontations surface while playing with mates. Teasing may also be associated. But this is not the matter of concern. Teasing, fighting, confrontations are all part and parcel of growing years. The situation gets tedious when it takes an ugly turn. Like tormenting, abusing verbally or intentionally trying to threaten the younger or the weaker child. It is called as bullying if repeated over and again with an intention to hurt. It can be verbal, physical or psychological in nature. It can range from calling names to spreading rumours or even extorting money or other treasured possessions. Bullying behaviour is seen all over the world and almost in all sections of society. It might start at an age as early as preschool and might intensify in the transitional teenager years. There can be various reasons behind this kind of aggressive behaviour.

...“Sometimes they trip you and you fall. When they laugh, you think maybe you had a stupid expression on your face as you fell or maybe someone said something funny that you missed. Sometimes you laugh with them, because after all, someone falling flat on their face is kind of funny, right? Sure.” This is how it starts: small. Bullying. A form of abuse: involving repeated acts over time attempting to create or enforce one person's (or group's) power over another person (or group). Recently, I have learned the going-on of one of the most tragic events ever, The Shoah. Through this learning I have derived some profound insights into not only myself, but others. My World Geography class researched acts of the Holocaust and discussed them at length. These exercises changed me, forever. They provided an experience that was incredibly valuable in changing my view on a variety of things: the role of bystanders, empathy, the power of little things, and how to react. Therefore, studying the Holocaust has changed my view and reaction to bullying, which is now focused on both recognizing and stopping bullying. The first thing we discussed about the Holocaust was the string of continuous discriminatory acts against the Jews. It was a changing moment for me. Before then, I had supposed the Holocaust as a random act of sorts - an event without roots before it. I was wrong. I learned that bigotry against Jews had been happening for centuries. It started in 70 A.D. and...

...bullying in school. Being bullied is not always physical, but can be emotional and psychological as well. Watching the film "Bully", I was taken aback by the extremity of the situation. I was not aware of how young the bullying starts. It is appalling and discomforting to know that it is just progressively getting worse. It is frightening to think that when I have children, that they will have to encounter this. I believe that Bully needs to be viewed by more people. It is an eye opener to how intense and severe the bullying scene has become. The children in the film were bullied because they were "different". But who determines the definition of different? Who sets the standard of normal? In reality, no one really has the right to judge someone and proclaim them different or weird. We are all created with unique features that are our own. However, dating back since the beginning of life, the world has attained a class/social system. Over the years, children have watched the separation of society, whether it be through television or in person. This evokes either a sense of superiority or inferiority in a child, becoming the foundation for bullying. With children committing suicide due to bullying, there needs to be serious action taking place to stop and prevent it. I agree with one of the mothers in the film that stated that when she sends her child to school, she should be able to feel that the child is safe and being watched over as if they were......

...Sept. 2013 Bullying When people hear the term bullying, they might remember when they were in school and saw or experience it personally. For most, the bullying happen between middle to high school, with some happening in college. And probably, the bullying wasn't too harsh and we simply think of it as some kind of tradition that most kids go through. But for others, bullying has blemish them for life or even produced woeful tragedies. For those victims and their families, bullying has cost them a great deal of pain, without nobody paying for their losses. Some feel like bullying is just rough teasing, others think that bullying should be classified as a form of harassment, and for those that have lost someone dear to them because of bullying are pushing for bullying to become a criminal offense. People are still trying to determined in what category bullying falls under and what is the fair way to deal with it. A lot of people are starting to acknowledge that something needs to be done and fast because bullying is affecting a lot of us, not just the victims anymore. But the question most are asking is; should bullying be consider a crime. A bully is someone that intimidates someone smaller and weaker than them, and sometimes uses physical force to get their victim to do something against their will. A bully can be a person with low personal self esteem and only feels like someone of interest when they bullying others. Some people think that a bully is a person that......

...A bully usually behaves differently toward persons of higher authority than to the target person. That is no different from the school yard bully who pushes someone to the ground and then turns to smile at the teacher standing nearby. In today's workplace, most bullies behave in ways that are subtle, not blatantly aggressive. They have learned, like people who discriminate based on race, that little things done over a period of time are often more frightening and intimidating than would be stepping over the line of legality into a major confrontation. Bullies don't want to be caught. They don't wish to be held accountable for much of anything. Any behavior that they are called to account for will be blamed on someone else, usually the target person. They know how to explain things so they sound reasonable and logical, all the while, thinking about ways to increase the pain felt by their target. It's not ordinarily one thing. It is usually a collection of events and interactions over a period of time that can range from a few days to months or years. A lot depends on the target's ability to withstand the onslaught of negative feelings created by such treatment How Can You Tell if You Have a Bully in Your Workforce? Well, turnover is a key indicator. It is hard for an employer to retain people in an environment where a bully is actively at work hurting others.

...cruise ships or large warships are comparable in every respect with restaurants or canteen kitchens. On passenger airliners, the kitchen is reduced to a mere pantry, the only function reminiscent of a kitchen is the heating of in-flight meals delivered by a catering company. An extreme form of the kitchen occurs in space, e.g., aboard a Space Shuttle (where it is also called the "galley") or the International Space Station. The astronauts' food is generally completely prepared, dehydrated, and sealed in plastic pouches, and the kitchen is reduced to a rehydration and heating module. Outdoor areas in which food is prepared are generally not considered to be kitchens, even though an outdoor area set up for regular food preparation, for instance when camping, might be called an "outdoor kitchen". Military camps and similar temporary settlements of nomads may have dedicated kitchen tents. In schools where home economics (HE) or food technology (previously known as "domestic science") are taught, there will be a series of kitchens with multiple equipment (similar in some respects to laboratories) solely for the purpose of teaching. These will consist of six to twelve workstations, each with their own oven, sink, and kitchen utensils...

Further stating that if he were to allow Drew's conviction to stand, "one could literally prosecute anyone who violates a terms of service agreement" in any way (Cathcart, 2009).

...political topic above the rest. When you see a classmate 5’2” and 131 lbs. be harassed for his appearance and be taunted for his lack of “vertical stature” it may seem like a common case of teasing. But when the actions become physical such as my classmate being stuffed into trashcans because he is “compact-able” what then would you describe it as? Did I have the proper tools to notifying someone or the education to know what I might be able to do to stop it from happening? There were no publicized programs and or institutes for help posted for students that were easily accessible. And the bullies just kept bullying with no repercussions. Is this something you would allow your child, friend, family member, or student to endure? Bullying has become a nation-wide issue that has many avenues that are in place for combating the problem, providing services for both the bullied and bullies and prevention and review committees to stop it before it happens, investigate and review the act(s). With programs, websites, and groups popping up all over the country there are people standing by the push and have started the dominos for all of the efforts to truly pay off for this epidemic.

...Bully is something that happened to be a normal part of a school life. People do not seem to realize that bully is physically and mentality harmful to both the victim and the bully. Bully issues happened once in my life and it had made me a stronger and a more attentive person. Previously, I was just a shy and an introverted girl, who don’t talk much in school. I always tend to keep quiet and sit at a side, trying to avoid teachers from calling my name in class. During lower primary school, everything was great. Things were running smoothly. But when it came to my fourth grade, things had changed. I remembered I was standing in the middle of the canteen, gripped my lunch tightly trying to squeeze myself to a seat. “Excuse me....sorry......” I said politely. Tried so hard to squeeze in but I failed and ended up standing helplessly. Out of nowhere, a gang of boys came towards me. I was scared and started to shiver in the inside. A tall boy, Ron, who was hunching his back strolled and stood in front of me. He stepped on my foot vigorously and gave me a wicked smile, while the his friends behind him snickered at me. I was shocked and I did not know what to do. Only thing that I thought was to finish my lunch quickly and get back to class. Surprisingly, my class teacher passed by the canteen. Looking at her as she walked by, wished to run up to her and tell her about the boys, but my heart controlled me from doing that. I was too coward and too afraid to do it. The......

...maladjustments based on sociodemographic conflicts within key groups, and (2) the need for more violence prevention and proactive social intervention where collaboration and educational prominence need to be modeled, implemented, and acknowledged by educators. The conflict theory of social stratification is applicable when it comes to the challenges bullying creates for public safety because the conflict is rooted in the subjugation of those who lack something valued within the social hierarchy of schools (i.e. physical development, socioeconomic status, sources of popularity) – the victims— by aggressive, often socially challenged bullies who possess what may be desired or valued by popular consensus among peers of similar sociodemographic background. Espelage and Holt (2001) in “Bullying and Victimization During Early Adolescence Peer Influences and Psychosocial Correlates” address social stratification within schools that enable more instances of bullying. This is basically an example for the haves versus the have-nots.. However, with this pattern of behavior in mind, what follows often results in victims becoming bullies themselves. In essence, these victim-bullies attack individuals they see as weaker, venting their own anger and insecurity Harris 2 via displacement on new victims versus at their original......

...Annotated Bibliography for School Bullies Tiffany Fuller DeVry University Annotated Bibliography for School Bullies Bullying is in various forms and is an emerging problem that many children and teenagers have to face daily at school, away from their parents view and protection. Children attend school to learn valuable skills and lessons. School is suppose to be beneficial and a positive experience for a child, but there are experiences, like bullying that may have a negative impact on the child and stay with that child for the rest of their life. This has become an increasing problem for parents, school administrators and teachers, and it affects our society. Bullying is physically and psychologically harmful to the bully and the victim and should be removed from the schools by increasing supervision and raising awareness. Bindley, K. (20012, August 08).

Bullies Behind Bars

...Bullies Behind Bars Creating and Enforcing Bullying Laws in the United States ENG120 Abstract In the past decade there have been a growing number of teenage suicide attempts and successes. Many of these come from some form of bullying and harassment in our schools. Bullies leave scars on our children that last long into their adulthood; if they are lucky enough to make it to adulthood. This behavior has long been accepted as “boys will be boys.” Well boys are no longer boys and girls are sometimes more cruel than boys. It’s time we as parents and adults tell these bullies that their behavior has consequences and we as a society will no longer accept their behavior. Creating and Enforcing Bullying Laws in the United States. After my parents split up, life as I had known it for 9 years had changed. My father was gone and we were now living in a small apartment and my mother was on food stamps. I didn’t get my clothes from the store any longer. My clothes came from the church and lots of kids in school let me know it every day. I was called poor, told I was wearing others trash, called names and even tripped a few times. It only lasted a month or so, and then they moved on to the next one and left me alone. Today the bullies are going worldwide on the web. They are harassing you until you want to crawl in a hole and die and unfortunately some do just that. I was fortunate that my bullying experience was short lived, but it never left my mind.

...Paper #1 The movie “Bully” (2001) takes place in Florida and it involves the story of two childhood best friends, Bobby and Marty. In the film, the two characters are recently out of high school. Marty and Bobby are really close friends; they are always hanging out together. The relationship these two have is complicated due to the fact that Bobby is a very aggressive and abusive, both physically as well as mentally. Marty does not seem to be as smart as Bobby as it is revealed in the movie that Marty dropped out of high school, while Bobby is supposedly attending college. Bobby and Marty enjoy drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana as it is portrayed throughout the film. At the beginning of the film, Bobby and Marty meet Lisa and Ali. All of them end up meeting up at the beach to engage in sexual acts. Soon after, Lisa ends up becoming Marty’s girlfriend. The plot starts to build up and Bobby’s abusive behavior begins to show in many scenes. Some of these scenes include Bobby forcing Marty to go up on stage at a gay bar to make money for them and punching Marty over and over after he accidentally crashes Bobby’s car. One theory that is applicable to this film is Sutherland and Cressey’s Theory of Differential Association. Marty becomes emotionally distraught about Bobby’s years of abuse and doesn’t know what to do anymore as he is venting to Lisa. The idea comes up to kill Bobby, which Lisa is the one to introduce to Marty and they then begin to get more friends......
