    Speak Up! - View Question #23097


    printer friendly version

    Question: can a bully be someone you are friends with?

    Answer:

    Even if someone calls him/herself a friend because they hang out with you, they can NOT bully you - Arizona has a new law that requires schools to have policies on bullying, harassment and intimidation. The message is clear: schools must create an environment where bullying is not tolerated. Each school is required to have a procedure for students, parents and teachers to confidentially report bulllying behavior to a school official to trigger investigation, punishment and prevention of further bullying behavior. (A.R.S. § 15-341). If the bullying acts threaten or actually cause injury to a person or property, then more severe penalties are called for and carried out under Arizona’s criminal laws. (A.R.S. § 13-2911).

    No they shouldn't beacause you would never know if the bully might threaten the friend not to say anything about what the bully did to her/him.

    Come on now, bullying is always going to happen. It separates the cool kids from the losers, how else would cool kids know what other cool kids to hang out with and vice versa. Protecting kids from bullying is just going to set them up for failure in the real world. There are not always going to be anti-bullying polices, so get them use to it now. The survival of the fittest.
