Bullying Behaviour in the School Milieu

Machelle L. Shelton

Abstract


In this paper the researcher explores and examines the ‘bullying’ behaviour patterns of not only the child but the teacher and the principal and various other staff members as well as parents, in the school setting. A study of various reasons for bullying, techniques and types of bullying will be analysed. It is a well-known fact that bullying is increasing in the school milieu. We need to analyse and respond positively to the situation and discover methods which can be used effectively to discourage this behaviour, when doing so. In the past, ‘isolation’ was generally the cause and comfort zone for the bully but as things change bullying has now crept into many other areas and today’s generation finds new ways to torment and intimidate others on a continuous basis. Being bullied can change your life in the long-term in distressing, demoralizing and detrimental ways. We need to find a solution to this injurious situation before it becomes so overwhelming that it cannot in the long term be restrained.
