no bullying

Bullying seems to be a great issue in schools today. Go to  and read this article. Answer the following questions related to this article:
What kind of preventative measures can a teacher take to prevent bullying?  
What role can a student play in preventing bullying?
What should a teacher do if they see bullying happening?
What is cyber bullying and how can a teacher/parents prevent it? 

Bullying is an unwanted aggressive behavior among school age kids that happens repeatedly and is an imbalance of power. Bullying can be categorized as : name calling, taunting, teasing, telling others not to be friends with them, spreading rumors, hitting, tripping, pushing, breaking others things, and mean/rude hand gestures.
Teachers should talk to the students about bullying. They should also keep good communication with their students. The teacher should encourage students to do what they love and model how to treat others with kindness and respect.
Students can help by :being their friend, tell a trusted adult if they see bullying, help create a distraction so they can get away,  set a good example, don't give a bully an audience.
A teacher should intervene immediately. First and foremost the teacher should remain calm, and model respective behavior. They need to separate the kids and make sure everyone is alright.  The next step is the teacher should find out the facts and determine if it is bullying. Support the students involved and then address the bullying behavior. 
 Cyber bullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. These devices include: Phones, Tablets, and Computers. They include social media sites like: Social Media, Text Message, Chat, and Websites.
Teachers and Parents should know where there students/kids are going online and establish rules about using technology. 
I feel that bullying has gotten way out of hand. If more teachers/students enforced these guidelines, maybe then bullying would be stopped.
