Bullying, Child Abuse and Social Systems for the Protection of Children

  • Is bullying an issue in your culture?
  • What types of bullying seem to occur in your observation? What kind of student or child seemed to attract bullying from other people?
  • Did you observe bullying when you were younger, in your school or your home town? At what age did bullying seem to stop, or did it continue clear through high school?
  • What have been some of the effects of bullying that you’ve observed? What has it done to people’s lives?
  • Do you think there is more bullying now, or do you just think we are paying more attention to it?
  • Do you think there should be punishments for bullying?
  • Where you’re from, who is responsible for a student misbehaving at school—the parents, the teachers, or the child himself?
  • Is corporal punishment allowed where you went to school? Is corporal punishment commonly practiced at home?
  • Are there many suicides among young people in your culture? If so, are they the result of bullying? Of stress over school-related issues?
  • In your culture, are there laws against beating children? What constitutes “child abuse” in your culture? How are people punished for abusing children? What happens to children whose parents have been convicted of child abuse—is there a system of foster homes to take them in?
