Bullying is a serious problem in many schools. Bullying occurs when someone uses various means to physically or emotionally intimidate or humiliate someone else. Bullying does not have to be physical; in many cases it is mental or emotional, making use of words and other tactics meant to exclude another and make him or her feel bad. There are have been numerous attempts to stop bullying in schools, in an effort to increase the safety of the school environment. However, it can be difficult to address this problem.
One of the things that was tried in Britain (and also, on a more limited scale in the U.S.) was the use of bullying bracelets meant to help students through a show of solidarity. The yellow Livestrong bands for cancer awareness became a fashion trend, and many others began using silicon bracelets of different colors to raise awareness of different causes. The bullying bracelets are of the same mold. It is possible to make a fashion statement, while sticking up for a cause. And the anti-bullying bracelets were supposed to do just that. In order to give them some cachet, celebrities like Bono from U2 and soccer start David Beckham wore them.
The bullying bracelets were supposed help students show that they would not be bullied, and that they would stand by their friends and help prevent their friends from being bullied. However, in the U.K., the plan backfired. The Guardian reported that many students wearing the bullying bracelets became victims themselves. Bullies thought that those wearing the bracelets would make good targets. So, instead of helping students, the bracelets simply marked out more victims for bullies.
You do not need a bracelet to help stop bullying, though. Efforts to stop bullying really need to start with student efforts, with support from teachers and parents. If you want to avoid a bully, it is often a good idea to consider some of the behaviors that discourage bullying.
