Bullying now and then.
What is the difference? Have you ever stopped to wonder why we as are so much harsher on each other than ever before. How the older generation doesn’t understand bullying? I’ve heard my mother as well as others say, “Everyone gets picked on in school.” Bullying goes further than what they know.
So what is bullying? I found a great site that provides information regarding bullying from stopbullying.gov I recommend that you check out this site for information on how to deal with bullying.
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.
In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:
- An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
- Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.
Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
Overtime, bullying can cause serious emotional problems.
The Vintage Female Image
My mother’s childhood were filled with several types of beautiful women like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. It was acceptable for women to have all shapes of bodies and they were all beautiful.
The Modern Female Image
What are our young ladies valued for today? Sex, drugs or money? I’m not really sure what we are teaching them. However, these images can only hurt them.
What are we valuing here? I’m not really sure. I guess this is why I hold on to the values of the 50s. I can never be one of these girls. My body wasn’t built this way. I don’t want sunken eyes or to appear soulless.
It took me years to realize that I would never be a size 2. That it was okay to be myself. That there are things worth valuing in myself and other women, beyond looks. Help your friends, daughters, neighbors and all girls find their worth!
At Trisha Trixie Designs we want girls to find their inner talents. To showcase them with their own beauty. With that, I’ll will leave you with pictures of some real women. You are all beautiful!
