Teen Bullying – Awareness

There is no quick question or answer on this topic. I have been asked many of which is starts off the same. Why? As an expert in the field of child behavior, bullying has been around since I was a child  and adults are not much different and are in the workplace. There are many questions and many answers.

Having extensive knowledge of cyber bullying, there are many issues, statistics and indeed resolutions. The percent of teens who have reported being bullied while at school  is 37%  of teens  who bully others. Overall in this nation, 1 out of 4 children get bullied while 95% never report it bulliesslapping and are simply bystanders due to peer pressure or fear they will be bullied themselves. Bullying threaten students’ physical and emotional security at school and can negatively impact their ability to learn.

The best way to address bullying like anything else is to stop it before it starts. There are a number of things school staff can do to make schools safer and prevent bullying. However, there are only about 15% of schools effectively promoting a policy and implementing strategies to curb bullying.

There needs to be an aggressive school preventative policy instituted and intervention efforts around students behavior, including substance use and violence. You may be able to build upon them or integrate bullying prevention strategies.

Conduct assessments in your school to determine how often bullying occurs, where it happens, how students and adults intervene, and whether your prevention efforts and methods are working. I believe that surveillance monitoring is an important solution which documents the bullying behavior and actions.

As evidence, it can be directly addressed to the student and family. It is important for everyone in the community to work together to send a unified message against bullying.

Launching an awareness campaign including social media make the objectives known to the school, parents and community members. Establish a school safety committee to plan, implement, and evaluate your school’s bullying prevention program.

I would suggest hiring a security expert like CRI to install and promote this endeavor. Create a mission statement, code of conduct, rules and a bullying system. These establish a climate in which bullying is not acceptable. disseminate and communicate widely. Establish a school culture of acceptance, tolerance and respect.

Use staff meetings, assemblies, class and parent meetings, newsletters to families, the school website to establish a positive climate at school. Reinforce social interactions and inclusiveness. Enforce and train teachers and staff on the school’s rules and policies. Give them the skills to intervene consistently and appropriately.

Current anti-bullying programs are limited and mostly ineffective. There is no correlation to other teenlaptopprograms like drug abuse and unprotected sex. These programs were established decades ago in school programs whilst anti-bullying was overlooked. Due to the severity of bullying, policies need to be implemented on all school programs in middle school and high school. They also need to be aggressive. In most states, cyber-bullying is considered a crime up to a class C felony.

Parents, teachers, and students learn the dangers of bullying and help students who may be at risk of committing sucasketicide.
In recent years, a series of bullying-related suicides in the US and across the globe have drawn attention to the connection between bullying and suicide. Though too many adults still see bullying as “just part of being a kid,” it is a serious problem that leads to many negative effects for victims, including suicide. Many people may not realize that there is also a link between being a bully and committing suicide.
The statistics on bullying and suicide are alarming:

  • Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. For every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts. Over 14 percent of high school students have considered suicide, and almost 7 percent have attempted it.
  • Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University
  • A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying
  • 10 to 14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above
  • According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying

Bully-related suicide can be connected to any type of bullying, including physical bullying, emotional bullying, cyberbullying, and sexting, or circulating suggestive or nude photos or messages about a person. Some schools or regions have more serious problems with bullying and suicide related to bullying. This may abc newsbe due to an excessive problem with bullying at the school. It could also be related to the tendency of students who are exposed to suicide to consider suicide themselves.

Some of the warning signs of suicide can include:

  • Showing signs of depression, like ongoing sadness, withdrawal from others, losing interest in favorite activities, or trouble sleeping or eating
  • Talking about or showing an interest in death or dying
  • Engaging in dangerous or harmful activities, including reckless behavior, substance abuse, or self injury
  • Giving away favorite possessions and saying goodbye to people
  • Saying or expressing that they can’t handle things anymore
  • Making comments that things would be better without them

If a person is displaying these symptoms, talk to them about your concerns and get them help right away, such as from a counselor, doctor, or at the emergency room. In some cases, it may not be obvious that a teen is thinking about suicide, such as when the suicide seems to be triggered by a particularly bad episode of bullying. In several cases where bullying victims killed themselves, bullies had told the teen that he or she should kill him or herself or that the world would be better without them. Others who hear these types of statements should be quick to stop them and explain to the victim that the bully is wrong.

Other ways to help people who may be considering suicide include:

  • Take all talk or threats of suicide seriously. Don’t tell the person they are wrong or that they have a lot to live for. Instead, get them immediate medical help.
  • Keep weapons and medications away from anyone who is at risk for suicide. Get these items out of the house or at least securely locked up.
  • Parents should encourage their teens to talk about bullying that takes place. It may be embarrassing for kids to admit they are the victims of bullying, and most kids don’t want to admit they have been involved in bullying. Tell victims that it’s not their fault that they are being bullied and show them love and support. Get them professional help if the bullying is serious.
  • It is a good idea for parents to insist on being included in their children’s friends on social networking sites so they can see if someone has posted mean messages about them online. Text messages may be more difficult to know about, so parents should try to keep open communications with their children about bullying.
  • Parents who see a serious bullying problem should talk to school authorities about it, and perhaps arrange a meeting with the bully’s parents. More states are implementing laws against bullying, and recent lawsuits against schools and criminal charges against bullies show that there are legal avenues to take to deal with bullies. If school authorities don’t help with an ongoing bullying problem, local police or attorneys may be able to.

Friends and relatives of suicide victims also need to find someone to talk to as they grieve, especially if they are suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts themselves.

What makes me part of being an expert? I was bullied most of my child life and survived. There are thousands of children, ages 6-18 they did not survive bullying and committed suicide. You read about them almost everyday. This needs to stop! http://www.thelost.net

CHILD RECOVERY INTERNATIONAL – WHERE LIVES ARE AT STAKE!

Why Child Recovery International?

Old school and old methodologies standards have no merit and you never want to gamble with a child’s life. What do you do when your child goes missing? Probably what every parent does; run to the police who most likely just takes an incident not a missing person report and then you call NCMEC. So, whether or not the police report to your home which is proper procedure, the police will most likely advise you that your child will return home due to childhood ANGST and acting out. This is them telling you their disinterest. The hate domestic calls. Also, the police are far specialists in missing persons.

PredatorCertainly there are good detectives but most will admit they did not receive the high level of training at the police academy for this type of expertise. The main factor of course is that that are confined to their own jurisdiction and unless your child is blond haired and blue eyes or has powerful political or corporate connections, you will catch the media eye and in turn get federal attention and the eye of the public.

The private sector as most know is always more proficient and dedicated. Child Recovery International has recovered over 650 missing and endangered children in just 17 years. Statistics speak volumes. We have the knowledge, skills, tools, techniques and abilities to focal point each given assignment and quickly disseminate the factual nature on each case assignment with an accurate profile in a proficient time element. Time is essential. Each case requires an accurate profile with strategic thinking and assessments. Each minute is a mile that potentially separates you from your child . We respond immediately and can process the nature of a child’s disappearance by developing an accurate profile through proven analysis and human behavior. We do not post flyers nor hold candle light vigils.

Our Theorem

We do not just immerse ourselves in today’s tasks. We think big picture. We step back fromstrategy the dance floor from time to time and take the balcony view. We review systems. Set priorities aligned with the major goals. We learn new sets of strategies for the leads we develop and move quickly. We take our innovative and creative knowledge and possessive qualities by backing it by taking smart risks. We overcome barriers with collaboration methodology applications. We stay on radar. We do not work on assumption but on clear and evident facts and evidence. We understand the value of direction and perseverance in our roles within our organization.

Leading by Example

That is how we are effective working hand in hand with local, state and federal authorities whenever necessary. Your IQ alone can’t fuel one’s success. Emotional intelligence is critical. We build and brand our self-awareness, self- management, social awareness and relationship management.

We recognize that as a leader, you can be contagious. We you need to be a source of energy, empatRUNAWAYhy and earned trust, proving optimism and reality with proven results. We understand that resilience is the key to leadership especially in stressful times. Critical thinkers question conventional wisdom. Here, we are vigilant about identifying and challenging assumptions that underlie actions and inaction. We are automatically wary of generalizations and unproven theories. We strive to be independent thinkers, careful to check how others base their colorful decisions and try not ask “how do you know that?” Avoiding this, we are able to speed up good decision-making and not cause paralysis by analysis.

expertWe understand that you have to communicate effectively in order to be efficient in one’s mission statement. Listening is the goal and the most powerful interpersonal form of communication with the members of the immediate family with one-to-one or small group circles.

Fear is not an exception for us. The Client is always the Child and the ONLY priority. We fear not the consequences of our work. because the tunnel of our objective is always clear and precise that we will not fail. There is always a pathway to a missing child. We know that we will have to find it! Closure is key!

Private sector Experts rescue Missing At-Risk Children

Every 7 minutes a child goes missing. When this happens to you or someone you know, what will you do? File a missing police report, call all your child’s friends, drive around the neighborhood, visit all their hangouts, call all the area hospitals, talk to all their teachers, post more flyers all around town, bus stations, airports, train stations? Where does it end and in the end how much time have you expended? Do you really think that after filing a police report, that the police go and investigate your child’s whereabouts? Do you think they have the skills to properly investigate a missing child? Do you read the news? Ask the parents of the missing who after years or decades are still out there looking for their children and have taken these measures and ask them if they are still looking for their child. Are they dead or alive?

If you turn your back, your child can be snatched. From there, every second counts. A minute can mean a mile that separates you from your child. If you want your child back, who would you call to get your child back?

The decision to have a private expert is always the best option when it some to investigating the missing. Choosing State, County or Municipal police will always have some unforeseen drawbacks. I can state unequivocally the following:

Private firms have more authority on private property than police. In addition, private agencies have a vested interest and work on special assignment. The police, even off duty, have to follow the guidelines set forth in the 4th and 14th Amendments of the US Constitution.

If your child is taken, most times the predator has done his/her research ad knows your movements. It might be minutes and most likely hours until you know that your child is gone. if you wait for the police to arrive and run through their check list, days can go on and then weeks and months leading to a very cold case and anguish for you and your child. You may never see your child again. The steps taken are wrong! You need an expert who knows what steps need to be taken to get your child back.

The police cannot stop anyone to ask if they live on property, what they are doing, etc. This is a violation of a person’s Constitutional Rights which could open the police or property owner up for a civil suit. The police are not allowed to speak to anyone unless they have a reasonable suspicion that a crime may be afoot. Further, they must be able to articulate this suspicion in clear language. Private can interact with anyone at anytime. Because they do not represent the Government, the Constitution does not apply to private.

Police Report

Police are overwhelmed with keeping the peace and generally not trained for missing persons cases and certainly not very attentive to give the attention 2,000 cases a day the missing child requires around the nation. The clock is ticking and every minute, it means that the missing child can distance about a mile in any direction and can often be located instantly if the party given the assignment has the skills whose only occupation every day is to locate the missing and take each case very seriously.

Law enforcement officers are less likely to get involved because of legal issues. Missing child cases cost the taxpayer millions if not billions and usually take back seat to other crimes that are more solvable and are given more attention. This means the more manpower is securing answering calls on domestic issues, keeping up the quota on speeding tickets, parking tickets and less investigative skills like trespassing, DUI’s and such. Police work in the “criminal realm” and in keeping the peace. They are not allowed to become involved in civil matters. Property owner rights, lease agreements and other such issues are civil matters. The police have limited knowledge or responsibility in missing persons unless there is specialized units and they are scarce and bordered.

Private sector are also more effective as we blend into the canvass of the environment.  We are never perceived as as a threat and are normally greeted with effective leads with proper interpersonal skills.

Police have a very difficult job. They are not specifically trained not adequately qualified or equipped with the right resources. Specialists is always a better, more effective option. Also, the most important factor is that police is limited to their jurisdiction. Most often, a child will leave or separated from your home town or even your states where the FBI has to be called in. Ask yourself this, how many times out of millions of cases do you think the FBI will get involved in a missing persons case and remain active?

We are highly trained profilers and criminal behaviorists that know the criminal mind set. We can assess whether or not if your child is missing or becomes a victim of human/(sex)trafficking. We know and understand the steps required to thoroughly investigate a missing child case and bring closure in an expedient fashion. We simply are cold case experts who can analyze a case and respond immediately. We also take a different approach that yields success. Our methods are thorough and precise which leads to closure. Most times, at the initial phase of any given missing person (child case) with sworn law enforcement, the chain of proper methodologies and procedures is broken from the onset which is turn leads to missing and overlooked evidence which turns to these cold cases and lost children for prolonged times and broken hearts.

When your child goes missing and is reported to an agent at CRI, we respond immediately, unlike police. If your matter is criminal which has to be determined, analysis and obtaining an accurate profile is the first step for any successful investigation and recovery operation. As soon as your child goes missing, the clock starts to tick and you must be on top of it. If you have a case that is cold, our case Operatives has the experience, knowledge, skills and dedication to close them regardless of time span. We closed one recently of a case that a world of law enforcement could not solve over 30 years old.

Your children are out there, crying our for help and assistance. They can be located if the right resources are provided. Also, if a predator is responsible for the disappearance of a child we can also apprehend the perpetrator (with assistance of law enforcement) responsible for the abduction of your child so this does not happen to another child.

Predator

This information is intended to help you in making an informed, cost effective decision. It’s your child, how much longer do you want to wait and see what develops with flyers and candle light vigils or a hope and a prayer?

2,000 children go missing each day! No offense but law enforcement does not have the resources to conduct a proper missing persons case and locate our loved ones. Most of these remain unsolved while families grieve each day and the anxiety and frustration mounts.

Are you aware that their are professionals out there that solve about 85% of the cold cases out there and bring closure to families and locate missing and endangered?

If this frightens you, imagine what your child feels at this time. You feel the same emotions; fear, terror, trepidation, horror. There is only one thing to do, you must end this.

If this frightens you, imagine what your child feels at this time. You feel the same emotions; fear, terror, trepidation, horror. There is only one thing to do, you must end this. No flyer or candlelight vigil will do. No social media group or non-for-profit will find you the closure you desperately need even with the good intentions they possess. It maybe comforting but is does not justify the end. Your child is still crying out for you and your nightmare continues.
