Some useful tips on looking out for others - and yourself.
This class play identifies different types of bullying and suggests strategies for both prevention and dealing with the problem when it arises. It looks at the problem of bullying from 2 perspectives - that of the ‘bully' and the ‘bullied', examining why bullies behave as they do and what it feels like to be on the receiving end. The most important message is that we are all special, that we should like ourselves the way we are, and that if we ever find ourselves being bullied, we should get help/talk to someone - never bottle it up inside and ‘put up' with it.
I wrote this at a time when my own daughter (then 9) was being bullied. I learnt many lessons from the experience which I would like to pass onto others.
Another resource for use within the classroom is a script in the Bible Stories section of the website on David and Goliath - cast of 10 and with discussion pointers on bullying at the end.
Child 19: You have to believe in yourself. And be your own best friend!
(Child 21:Lollipop lady walks to centre of stage - lifts STOP sign each time it's spoken)
Narrator: What are you doing here? I can't see any traffic?
Lollipop Lady: No, but there are lots of things that need to stop, apart from cars. We're here to tell you about the things we should stop doing!
Child 1: STOP feeling everything that goes wrong is your fault! It isn't!
Child 2: STOP thinking you have to be perfect at everything! It's not possible - you're not superman!
Child 3: STOP letting what you can't do get in the way of what you can do!
Child 4: STOP trying to be everybody's friend. You can be liked by some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time!
