Bullying

Bullying can happen to anyone, most teenagers will experience bullying at some point and time in their life. Often teenagers feel powerless against bullying. Bullying occurs when words or actions are repeatedly used to harm person’s wellbeing. While there are times we can accidentally say or do things that are hurtful, it’s important to understand that bullying is deliberate behaviour. It’s done on purpose to make a person feel intimidated, threatened or powerless and is often ongoing.

Unfortunately, teen bullying can be common, particularly at school. But it can happen almost anywhere such as the workplace, at home and online.

There are many different things that can influence a person to bully others. Some common reasons include:

  • to feel powerful and in control
  • to cope with unhappiness or anger
  • peer pressure
  • having little empathy for others
  • to deal with self-esteem and confidence issues.

Bullying can be more than just nasty looks and teasing. It can come in lots of different forms, including:

  • name calling
  • spreading rumors or lies about someone
  • physical intimidation or harassment
  • targeting a person’s sexuality, religion, race, gender or disability
  • singling a person out to make them feel alone or different.

If someone is being bullied they can feel:

  • alone and helpless
  • unsafe and afraid
  • guilty, often blaming themselves for the bullying
  • stressed and anxious
  • depressed, sad or down.

It is very important to know what bullying is; know when you are being bullied and when you are the one doing the bullying.  Always treat people the way you want people to treat you and when someone is bullying you PLEASE take the time to let your parents or an adult know.

Stay Blessed & please continue to visit WAG!

  3. It’s good to see that there are people out there that care and believe, that our young people need our guidance and encouragement; especially in an era where the technology robs our young women and men of who they are. Young women and men alike are special in their own way, but they often needs a positive force to propel them through the difficulties and uncertainties of life, wheather by a mentor, or through positive websites such as WAG. I hope, and strongly encourage a continuity of this website, I believe that our young people can greatly benefit from thisc site, educationally and spriritualy. Great job!

    • I agree with you D.Smith. It takes a village to raise a child& I do believe that we all can make a difference in young women & young men lives. With a little persistence & time we can help the younger generation become positive productive citizens to society. I thank you for the encouraging words. Stay Blessed!

  4. This is the kind of information that all young girls need in life. Having a strong mentor, sharing words of wisdom and encouragement. This is an outstanding website very positive. We applaud you sister for all that you are doing. GOD BLESS you.

  5. Hello everyone January was an awesome month for WAG, I received feedback that helped me pick this month’s topics. Loving yourself is the best thing you can do for you. When you love yourself you love life & live each day to the fullest. Please take the time go visit each section, leave a comment & pass WAG website to other girls & mothers. Always love yourself & pray without ceasing!

  6. It is of great importance for us as young ladies to love and celebrate ourselves, because it is impossible for us to love others, until we learn to love ourselves. Always remember to Love and Trust God with all of your heart and Love yourself because your worth it! Peace,Love,Blessings and Joy! KDM
