1. You would not want it done to you
If I were to ask you if you would like for someone bigger, stronger or more popular than you to make fun of you, physically or verbally pick on you. Would you say yes? Only if you were lying would you say yes. So think about that if you are ever tempted to do it to someone else.You would not want it done to your children when you have them
2. You would not want it done to your children when you have them
Think about this. One day you may have children, who will have to interact with society. Be aware that they will come in contact with a bully or two in their life. Think of how intolerant you would be about having your child bullied. So moving forward in your life do not do to someone else’s child what you would not want done to yours.It can cause depression in others
3. It can lead to depression
Depression later in life sometimes can be linked to having been bullied repeatedly. Many times the depression can lead to other catastrophic actions. Not that most children get to that level, however, make a commitment to never being a predator anyone in any way.
4. It’s just wrong
When it doubt, just think of it like this. Is it right to pick on someone who is weaker, less popular, less athletic etc. If it’s friendly joking it’s ok, we have all had those friends who are so good at joking that you could only laugh at yourself. Those situations are ok but everyone knows the difference between friendly teasing and bullying/harassment. So just don’t do it.
