No Name Calling Week

Picture by Connor



This week is No Name Calling Week (http://www.nonamecallingweek.org/).

In the article "We Can Stop Bullies" (Time Magazine for Kids, November 2008) it states that, "Youth must be part of the solution" when it comes to all forms of bullying in schools.

The blog question this week then is, how can you stop bullying in our school and community?

This is how you can stop namecalling. If the person being insulted you ignore them and they will findit no fun. Then if that does not work you can just tell a gurdian or teacher. The teacher or gurdian will proboly talk to them or discuss and see how you would feel. That is a couple ways to stop name calling.

Sometimes bullies call you names.You can stop that by ignoreing the names then they will lose intrest in calling you names.It is hard to resist though so it doesnt work all the time.You can try asking the bullie why does he pick on you. The best thing to do is to try to become friends with one another.that is how I would try to sttop bulling

One way you can stop bullying at your school is by, telling the kids that bully is that it's wrong and ask them to think about what it would feel like to be the person who is being bullied. Also try to convince them not to bully.

To start with I think we can make the world a better place by stop bulling. A way we can stop doing this is to make posters and hang them up in all the schools. Another way we can stop bulling is if you know that someone is bulling you. Then you can go tell them that it is not right. If they don't listen to you and keep doing this then you should go and tell your teacher, guardian, or parent and tell them that someone was bulling you and let them handle it from there. I think that we can make the community and our school a better place by telling each other everyday to stop and think about what you are going to say before you say it. That way we can make our world a better place.

We should not name call because it could cause conflict. People should learn to get along with each other. If kids to like to play with them that is a sighn that they are not a bully. We don't want bullys all over the place or else there would be a conflict everywhere.

I think that we can make a better place by stop bullying. Schools have lots of bullies which stops kids from learning as much as the other kids, but if we did not have bullies we would have the kids learn like the kids who aren't bullied. In communities we would have lots of bullies.

You can stop bullies by standing up for your self and others. Be nice to others and they will be nice back at you. You can make a little club that can stop you or anyone by trying to become a bully. You can become friends with the bully and the bully will see how your acting and it might act the same way your acting. You can tell the teacher that a bully is messing with you. The teacher can talk to the bully and the bully might stop being a bully.

You can stop bullying by telling an adult or a teacher. If they don't listen to the teacher than just walk away. But if they come up to you in the hallway just walk as fast as a you can hopefully you have cameras in your school hallways so the princeble will see what bullies do to little kids. If they get cought they get to face the consecuenses. I hope that we can stop the bullies from bullying.

Name calling weak is about people who call people names. I think people should stop name calling bacause it hurts other peoples fellings. There are names such as foureyes ,monkey face and other names. When people call other people names it makes them feel small.

STOP!
Don't make fun of someone beause they are short, tall or ugly.If you think that it is cool, and people think you're popular they're not true friends. If they tell you to stop maybe you should listen to them because it could cause a lot of trouble, and you don't want that now do you? If you want to make fun of someone wait until you graduate, get a dergee, and then you can pick a fight with someone.I would think twice before doing something crazy like theating a person saying that you jump them after school, thats what you call old bulling now there is a new source of bulling called verble bulling that means physical action to it.You're not there to pick a fight with some new kid that just got here and has problems, and all you are doing is making it worse then what it already is you are there to get a great education from the best teachers in history.Don't make a fool of yourself bethe real you. Don't let them scare you out of your socks, and make you feel like not going to school, and mess with your education, stand up for yourslf, be strong, and remember WE CAN STOP BULLIES!

Wow!! You all have certainly put a lot of thought into wonderful ways to be good citizens and friends. Calling names is certainly hurtful and cruel to the person being bullied and doesn't make anyone feel good. You all are SUPER!!

WOW!!! I am so proud of you. You did a very good job of expressing your feelings. If you keep that in mind, you can always overcome a bully. If a bully thinks you are scared, they will always bother you.

You can stop bullying by ignoring them or acting like you are not upset but happy. They will think that you like it or do not care. You can also tell an adult you trust that might help. They can tell the principal and make the bullying stop.

You can stop bullying by if a kid hits you you can go to your parents. And your parents can talk to there parents. If they do it again you just walk away. If you come back and fight with them then that means you are a bully. We need to stop bullying.

You can put up posters. You also can say that "you are diffrent on the outside but same on the inside and when you are going to call a name someone stop and think about what you are going to saqy and think about how its going to make that person feel". So if you see bullying going on try to put a stop to it,you could make a diffrence.

If a bully wont stop calling you names or giving you wegges, you have three options. One, tell an adult. Two, let him bully you. Finaly three, for the confedent type, stand up to the bully and show him who`s boss! So that you can see I "DONT" like bullys.
