How can someone use the knowledge out there to understand the Bully Game? NoBullying releases today an exclusive interview with Walter G. Meyer on what is the Bully Game.
Due to the popularity of Walter G. Meyer’s book, Rounding Third, which deals quite powerfully with the timely topic of teens being bullied until one of them can’t take it anymore and attempts suicide, Walt has been receiving many requests to speak and write about this tragic topic. In this extensive interview on bullying and how to understand the bully game, he talks to NoBullying on how bullying has progressed over the past ten years and how parents, educators and health care professionals have a substantial role in stopping the sad bully game.
According to Meyer, bullying has changed during the past ten years. “Somebody as tiny as I was in high school couldn’t bully many people but now online you can bully anyone. It doesn’t matter how big you are, how strong you are. Most online bullies are actually girls.”
And when it comes to awareness on what is bullying, Meyer doesn’t believe the media awareness isn’t helping as much as it should be with school bullying “almost every school in the United States has created a district policy on bullying, but so many of them are completely worthless. It’s ‘we wrote a policy on bullying, here it is’ and it is worthless.”
As for Cyber bullying, he believes in not being a bystander, he believe in being proactive when witnessing someone cyberbullied “If you’ve got a problem with him, discuss it like an adult in private but don’t splash it all over your Facebook page where people can then pile on.”
Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said “Walter G Meyer provides applicable advice on how to deal with teen bullying especially with conversations and guidelines at home. He also touches down on important aspects such as bullying in online games and how cyber bullying starts. His insights are quite inspiring in the fight to help stop bullying.”
He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and offline. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.
