Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #201: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime about a school shooting involving two 16-year-old high school students.

The bullying had escalated to the point where the boy who’d been bullied took a stolen gun he’d acquired to his school that had no metal detectors and at the time, didn’t do bag searches.

He Said

According to the shooter’s statement, the Friday before the shooting, he’d been in an off-campus fight with boys. Over the weekend, there were texts circulating about who had won the fight.

Bullied To Tears

Posts about real school tragedy, crime, and/or events can be upsetting.

For my 200th blog post, I’ve chosen the subject of bullying. In my opinion, bullying is the #1 problem in schools today. From all the research I’ve done and my work experience, I’ve come to believe much of the school violence stems from bullying.

It’s hard for parents to see their child come home day-after-day in tears from having been bullied at school or in this case on the bus. With that said. It’s never a good idea to deal with the bully on your own. Talk with the bully’s parents, the school principal, the superintendent, school board members, or perhaps law enforcement if the severity warrants that level of intervention or transfer to a different school.

Robin Lyons' BlogBLOG POST #195: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific case involving a 13-year-old boy who’d been relentlessly bullied.

Summer is the perfect time to have conversations with your children or grandchildren about bullying. Kids need to understand what to do and what not to do if they are a victim of bullying.

Bullies

It doesn’t take much to hurt a child’s feelings and breakdown their self-esteem. Bullies know this all too well. As a grandmother, when I learn of my grandchildren being bullied, it’s hard not to charge into the school and demand action. Unfortunately, it’s a delicate situation—it shouldn’t be delicate—but politics come into play.

Shocking Sexual Abuse At A High School

Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #182: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving sexual assault at a high school.

There were sexual assault reports from more than ten victims over several years. In the end, eight victims, boys, and girls told the judge their shocking stories.

A 14-year-old freshman garnered the courage to bypass school administration—because he’d seen they weren’t addressing the issue—and went to the school’s resource officer, a detective with the local police department.

Unsafe Learning Environment

Bullying can make an unsafe and hostile learning environment for students the same as it does when adults are bullied it creates a hostile work environment.

Bullied students don’t want to go to school the same as bullied adults don’t want to go to work. But students often don’t have a choice.

BLOG POST #180: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving the repeated bullying of a 13-year-old student. (Helpful resources at the bottom)

The homepage of the school’s website states, “Provide a safe and secure learning environment where students are able to work towards reaching their maximum potential.”

School mission statements need to be an action plan, not a sales pitch.

Mean Girls

A note wadded into a ball was thrown at the teen—“bitch” had been written on the paper.  On the bathroom wall, someone had penned she and her sister were “ugly as f—”
