School Officials Let Popular Student Get Away With Bullying

School Officials Let Popular Student Get Away With Bullying

This father wants to do the right thing by his son who is being bullied by the popular kid at school, but he also wants to work within the system of school administrators in a reasonable way. He’s not about making waves; he just wants to protect his son. Ed first heard from his son about the bullying. Soon after, he found out that the school officials knew his son was being bullied at school, but he was never notified. As this father delved deeper in to the issue, he came to feel like this bully was “getting away with it” because his parents are very involved in the school’s athletic programs. The bully’s parents, in response to hearing that their son was being accused of being a bully, were heard to say that this was all because their son is “popular.” When your child is bullied, and school officials know about it but don’t notify you, what is a father to do? Ed felt that the school officials weren’t taking the aggression toward his son seriously. As taken from violencepreventionworks.org, when schools don’t take action against bullies, the entire climate of the school can be affected. An environment of fear and disrespect develops. Students can begin to dislike school. School administrators who take the stance of “looking the other way” or “letting bullies off the hook” can leave students feeling insecure. All can adversely impact learning. When action isn’t taken at our schools to address bullying, the students can begin to feel that their teachers and school principal don’t care about them as individuals. That, or they can be seen as ineffective in controlling the student population. Eventually, school officials will be called to task and the community as a whole may get involved. Parents, like Ed, won’t stand

Manipulated By Friend?

Manipulated By Friend?

My mouth always gets me in trouble. I don’t always know when to shut up and just blurt things out when I shouldn’t. My good friend and I talk every day and I appreciate her support because I’ve had a rough year with a divorce and getting back to dating hasn’t gone so well. My problem is that I’m beginning to feel that my friend has been baiting me, manipulating me and getting me to fight her fights. When she has a problem with one of the girls from our group of girlfriends, she will talk to me and tell me things that I now feel are shared hoping that I will be the one to confront our friend. I’m starting to feel like she’s been using me to do her dirty work. Could this be happening and how can I deal with her manipulations? Yes, this could be happening, especially if you are seeing a pattern of this in your friend, but there are many more questions that need answered before jumping to the conclusion that your friend is manipulating you. Manipulation is acting intentionally to control someone. The manipulation can be done through either covert actions, such as talking to two people behind each other’s back to try and turn them against each other, similar to what you describe, or their actions can be more overt. Overt manipulations take the form of angry verbal threats and bully tactics. If any of these actions seem to fit the behavior of your friend, she just may be using you. You ask how you can deal with this and the first thing you need to know is that, generally speaking, you can’t change a manipulator so don’t even try. Don’t waste your time trying to point out their behavior, or how

Good Cop, Bad Cop

Good Cop, Bad Cop

One job I never wanted for my sons was to be a policeman. I told them so, and I’m thankful they chose other career paths. As a mother, I wouldn’t sleep at night knowing they were placing themselves in danger. Our police risk their lives every day protecting us and upholding the laws. They deserve our respect and admiration, but, as my friend who is a member of our local police force tells me, morale is low. Public perception of police is at an all time low in the wake of national media reports and national protests centered on racial profiling and police brutality. Yes, we do have mostly good cops doing a good job for the citizens, but there are also some bad cops out there. Cops that, for whatever reason, take the powers entrusted them too far. One should expect to find a small percentage of “bad cops” in the ranks. Every profession has its rogue individuals. You don’t have to look hard to find errant Doctors, Lawyers, Celebrities, and even Clergy. Yet, we need to be mindful that the majority of the people we look up to are doing good work. If a few bad cops are carrying out racial profiling and police brutality, we shouldn’t put our head in the sand or look the other way. We should stand up for just treatment of all our citizens, regardless of their race. Yet, it is easier to make a case for unjust racial profiling or police brutality if the victim is a law-abiding citizen who has done no wrong. Doug Glanville, a retired Major League Baseball player and ESPN correspondent, wrote, “I was Racially Profiled in My Own Driveway”. He was confronted by a police officer while shoveling snow in his affluent, mostly white, neighborhood in an
