1. Bias Awareness and Bullying Prevention 

Bullying refers to any repeated act done with the intention of harming another person physically and/or emotionally. The power imbalance between bullies and their victims is implicit in the dynamics of bullying. Bullying is essentially an attempt to exercise power over someone less powerful—and gain control over that person—through a systematic approach of intimidation, verbal attacks or force, or systematic teasing and harassment of particular individuals. These individuals may be targeted because of race or physical characteristics, or other reasons. tHE Gallety will expand in more later. 

Although bullying occurs everywhere—at home, the workplace, and in social networks—it is most often associated with the familiar image of the schoolyard bully.
The hierarchical structure present in the school culture allows bullies to pick on their chosen targets to gain something for themselves at the expense of their victims.
Victimization has negative effects, short- or long-term, on the person experiencing bullying. These can include poor academic performance, low self-esteem, feelings of isolation and insecurity, and even suicidal thoughts or behavior. In many instances, the impact continues well into adulthood.
TURNING OUR FACES AWAY: Despite its widespread prevalence in schools everywhere, the phenomenon of bullying managed to escape the serious attention of educators, parents, social scientists, and society at large until quite recently, and was often dismissed as a passing phase, until recently.

The Changing Face of Bullying Bullying was considered more typical of boys than girls, but there is growing evidence suggesting that bullying behavior is spreading quickly among girls as well.
Bullying among girls tends to take a more indirect form. Indirect bullying is defined as a covert, subtle form of aggression directed against certain girls who are singled out as targets for various reasons.
Bias are formed when we accept generalized perceptions about a group with respect to race, ethnicity, religious background, class, language, etc.
Bias also plays a significant role in bullying, bias awareness is considered an important part of bullying prevention. Racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, and homophobia are biases against a person’s race, gender, faith, and sexual orientation respectively. A person’s appearance or disability may also be the subject of bias.
Talking about bullying might become a very sensitive topic because we can find ourselves with people that has been oppressed before or people that have acted as the oppressor in different occasions.
In the case of children, it is not reasonable or helpful to expect them to “work it out” on their own without adult support. This is especially true if the threat of violence exists. It is important to let them know they can depend on trusted adults for safety and protection. Adult intervention efforts gain strength and momentum when schools implement strict policies against bullying. The key is to be able to communicate and assert oneself, but not at the expense of the other person. Anti-bullying training teaches children how to say no to a bully assertively.
Although adult intervention is crucial, children can be taught how to take care of themselves, at least in some situations. The key is to be able to communicate and assert oneself, but not at the expense of the other person. Anti-bullying training teaches children how to say no to a bully assertively.
STOP! He is just a Kid!! Prevention programs examine the role of the victim, the bystander, and the person engaging in bullying. As a learned behavior, bullying can also be unlearned. The goal of bullying prevention work is to recognize and stop bullying behavior at as early an age as possible.
Anyone can be victim of Bullying. Bullying can be everywhere but there are ways to stop it. You become a bully when you stay silent; It’s time to take a stand
