The Bully

Violence in schools is an ongoing problem. Students verbally and mentally abuse each other on a daily basis. Verbal abuse is the most precedent. These students are usually titled as bully's or having aggressive behavior. Girls have a tendency to indirectly bully, and boys have a tendency to physically bully other students. Bullying is a misbehavior that has to be resolved by looking at what is causing the behavior.
It is not something that can be tolerated in schools, and classrooms.
Bullying or aggressive behavior can be defined in many ways. The child pushes people around, may threaten other students, and can have a bad temper. Usually the student is extremely negative. Bullies perceive everyone is against them. They demean others and humiliate them in public eyes. They look for trouble and their parents may promote their behavior, including fighting. The teachers find that the students talk back to them, and these types of students often have learning disabilities. They are also usually loners with few friends, and if they have friends their the leader of the pack. Bullying or aggressive behavior has many effects on the school-learning environment. Students are frightened by misbehaving bullies so it creates a situation were fear is present in the classroom. It is not fair that children feel uncomfortable, and confrontations occur. Class time is wasted, the learning stops, and class discussions or lectures are interrupted; bad examples are set, and often times the teacher feels he has lost power to the bully. From time to time the teachers may fear the bully themselves. Many things can cause misbehavior. There are three key causes of the misbehaving bully attention, power, and self-confidence. The bully who seeks attention enjoys the attention they get from other students and peers. They may not know the difference between positive and negative attention, and are just happy to get any. The bully who seeks power
