Bullying Story of a 12 Years Old Student

Bullying Story of a 12 Years Old Student

Hello friends, I am 12 years old and I would like to tell my aweful bullying story from my first day at school.

First day at school 

To begin with, I will talk about my first day at school which did not go so well. It was the first day of September and I was very nervous. In the morning of my first day of school it looked like it was about to rain and my knee was hurting a lot because I injured it just a couple of days ago by falling from the monkey bars at a park. I dressed up and ate food then left for the school bus.

The bullying story starting scene

   After the bus ride it was very hard for me to walk and reach my class. The clouds were crying by the time I had reached. I reached very late in class because it was the first time I came to this school and did not have much idea on how to navigate to my class. When I finally reached class I had a Math period which was about to finish. After that, I had a break. I saw some boys from grade 10 and they were staring at me. At first, I ignored them, then they started following me which made me more nervous yet I tried to ignore them.

   Next, luckily, the break had just finished and those boys left me alone and went to their class. I had a few more classes and then it was home time. Those boys followed me again but this time they came to me and one of them said, “Hey kid, you look like a weirdo and you look stupid.” Then, another one shouted and said, “Hey champ, You look smart, do my homework.” I didn’t know anything because I just guessed that they were from grade 10.

I then started running because of fear enduring the pain in my knee. Suddenly, those kids started catching up on me because I was running slower than a snail due to the pain in my knee. Nonetheless, with heavy bag on my shoulders, I kept running then I fell due to the pain in my knee whcih grew worst and now it was bleeding too. Having this terrible mental and physical stressful situation, i missed my school bus. I had no choice but to start walking towards my home. At this point in time, i felt like my home was a billion miles away.

The twist in the bullying story

    Continuing on, I finally saw a police guard on the street and told him that some boys were chasing me and were trying to bully me. Then the nice and kind policeman came with me and I led him to the boys that were annoying me. Now, the situation was twisted and it was boys’ turn to run away from me and the policeman chased them down. While he was following them, he called his colleague to take me to the hospital.

The policeman’s colleague then called my parents and they immidiately drove to the hospital. After thorough testing by the doctor it was revealed that my bone was partially fractured and it would take several weeks to heal up. Due to the continuous paing, I felt that a lion had bit me in the leg. The other policeman then finally caught those boys and called their parents too. Those boys were in big trouble now.

Follow up and Investigation by parents and school adminstration

The story doesnt end here. My parents went to the school next day and formally registered a complaint to the school and demanded investigation as well as strict monitring setup in the school so that kids bullying can be controlled properly. Also it was mentioned that teachers should take active part to stop bullying in the class

    All in all, it was a bad experience I had but the coolest part was that the bullying kids were punished by the school and I got medical leave from the hospital to stay home as a result of which I enjoyed playing videogames more than the routine duration. My leg still pained a lot for one or two months, but it was something I had experienced for the first time. After one month I made new friends at school and enjoyed playing games with them.

Final Advice

My suggestion to all the kids out there is not to feel shy or fearful if encountered such situation, instead face the bullying kids with bold attitude and let them know they will have to face consequences. Also in such situation, immidiately shout out to any senior person or teacher near by. The better you face it the better control you will have on the situation.

24 Critical Problems of Online Classes (and 6 advantages)

Corona has disturbed the education ecosystem as a result of which several problems of online classes have emerged. Schools have adopted online methods of teaching however there are numerous critical problems associated with this approach. It is important that institutions, in collaboration with parents and respective stakeholders, work tirelessly to come up with strategies and action plans to resolve (or reduce the impact of ) these challenges. Below is a list of 24 problems of online classes

24 Disadvantages of Online Classes (E-Learning)

  1. Teachers cannot see what students are doing which directly impacts the quality of education as teachers cannot supervise the students properly.
  2. During normal school hours kids do a lot of physical movement in breaks whereas during online classes no major physical activity happens which leads to kids’ health issues.
  3. Kids learn a lot from each other when they socialize in school. Socializing results in exchange of information and ideas, establishes mutual trust and emotional bonding with each other and improves several personality traits. Online classes directly impact the grooming of kids.
  4. Due to continuous sitting in front of the screen, kids’ eyesight gets impacted or may lead to back issues due to extended sitting in the same posture.
  5. Families with more than one kid have to purchase additional tabs or computers which is a major cost for many middle-class parents.
  6. Many parents and kids have to face IT and network related problems. Families that do not have much exposure to technology suffer a lot due to this.
  7. Teachers cannot judge the level of comprehension of students and sometimes unable to provide ‘additional’ explanations to students. Usually, in regular classroom teaching, teachers can easily judge if the students are not grasping the concepts and he/she can exert extra efforts to let kids fathom the concepts.online classes
  8. Many schools do not have a mechanism to check online homework. Teachers cannot check students’ textbooks, copy books and work books . Many students take ‘advantage’ of this and do not complete home assignments.
  9. Students may not follow instructions and rules and do not comply, knowing that school can’t do anything.
  10. Students and parents are not comfortable with the new ways of class tests and have to put extra effort into learning new mechanisms.
  11. Some students can easily deceive the exam system and take help from their siblings to pass the exam.
  12. Students can easily skip classes. Even if the teacher takes the attendance at start, it is quite easy for student to miss it for the rest of the class tenure
  13. Due to no interaction with class fellowes, students get bored which leads to distraction from study
  14. Students can play online games or watch videos while being ‘present’ in online class.
  15. Students may get distracted due to mic issues, speakers issues or other computer issues [such as patch upgrades, software restart etc]

  17. Since the students do not have to wake up early and get ready for school, they tend to sleep late which makes them dizzy during the class. Some students may fall asleep during the class. Sleeping late also impacts their health.
  18. Many students cannot practice what the teacher has taught. This lowers their graph of learning.
  19. Students do not get personal attention from the teacher in general and for specific problems.
  20. Some teachers do not produce qualitative presentations for kids to elaborate the contents.
  21. Students keep calling their parents for many small matters which creates stress for the parents.

  4. Parents do not have to worry about what kids eat from school canteen as they can serve homemade food to their loved ones.
  5. Students are free during the breaks in which they can spend time with parents or can do anything they like.
  6. While staying home, kids don’t get bullied which is a sigh of relief for some of the parents.
