Do you think it should be a law on bullying at schools? Removing the bully from the school is going to solve nothing because they are going to go to another school and bully other students.

I heard on the news I think that bullying is going to be fined. If your child bullies another kid the parents will be fined. Their trying to slow the bullying down.

That's a good idea which, hopefully, will work.

@MALUSE I think so too, it starts at home so it should end at home too. If parents can't discipline and teach their children better than that they should be held responsible.

Best way to stop bullies who use harmful words is to stand up to them and not allow their harmful words to harm you. Easier said than done though.

That may be true for the first and possibly their second offence, Cool... but I know that after they have had either one or two school changes, then other schools won't accept those kids. After a different school won't accept the bully, they are forced to go to an alternative school. There is an alternative school here where I live. There are only five or six students per teacher so the student (yes, even the bully) gets one-on-one teaching to help them do better in school and hopefully, make them see that bullying other students won't get them ahead in life. That student is closely watched in the alternative school so they have no chance to bully any other students. If they are caught bullying students, even off the school grounds, they can be sent to a boy's/girl's town. (That is like a year round camp where the rules are very harsh and the bully's are treated similar to boot camp in the army.) Nobody really wants to live like that if they have a choice!

I wish they would implement something like that here.

@vandana7 The parents of the bully used to fight the school and a judge was forced to make the schools accept them back where the bully could continue to chastise other students and sometimes even teachers. That is no longer the case here. A judge, if asked to intervene can remove the bully from his/her home and send them straight to the boy's/girl's towns now. It is similar to putting them into a foster home environment except they are not allowed to roam freely, are kept in the camp and must perform chores/cleaning duties during their non-school time. They aren't allowed to have time to bully other children and could be subjected to bullying themselves by both the teachers as well as the other students. Boy's/Girl's towns are basically giving up on a person who is considered beyond help. The teachers in these towns, in theory, are there to help these students. in reality, very little help is given to them. Their next step is into a prison type environment.

@DaddyEvil Alternative schools for students who bully is a good choice. The staff at Boy's/Girl's town probably scared for their life due to the behaviors of children that comes there and that is one of the reasons they are given up on these youngsters. They could be looking at their behaviors being terrible and no room for change. It should be something to prevent bullying for happening and continuing.

Believe it or not maybe because Wordgirl who was on PBS Kids from 2007-2015 did make a cartoon movie in 2012 called "The Rise Of Miss Power" where our hero Wordgirl with the help of her mentor monkey Captain Huggyface found the best way to stop a verbal bully is to say the opposite of their harmful words. It may or may not work though in real life.

They should be guided well by the school guidance counselor, and their parents should know about it too. They should be the first to talk with their children.

Bullying should be banned at all schools. These bullies hinder the rights to an education for students.
