Bullying

A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home.

 

Copy this and spread the message throughout the Internet if you are against bullying.

We're not supposed to mention that site.

 

WHOOPS! *edits entry*

 

BTW, need I remind you, this isn't about my imperfections, this is about probably the most powerful bullying message in existence. Just a heads-up before this goes too far again.

Interesting. How old was this class? I imagine if this were a high school class, the students would only giggle about it after the fact.

I've been wondering about that myself. I certainly HOPE it was a young class, so it gets into their heads before it's too late.

 

They should do something similar regarding hoon driving. The people who hoon are the people who leave school at the earliest possible age, and these life lessons are given to older, more mature people who already get it.

I'm certainly against 'bullying', but that message isn't powerful at all, and it's not going to help stop that kind of thing from happening.

Really? It looked to me like the students had gotten the message. Or had the problem kids all been suspended that day?
