Bullies can make you feel hurt, scared, and embarrassed by using violent actions and bad words.

Being bullied  can make you not want to go to school or play outside. It’s hard to focus on studying when you’re worried about how to deal with the bullies at the canteen.

Are you being bullied? There are things you can do to defend yourself from bullies.

What to do to keep you out of trouble

  • When you walk on campus, walk with confidence. Stand up straight, look directly at people, and make eye contact. If you have friends, of course you do, walk with them.
  • Avoid taking shortcuts. Make sure the paths you take are clear and have decent lightning.
  • Maintain safe distance with strangers.
  • Remember emergency phones on campus.
  • Most schools have bullying policies and anti-bullying programs. Find out about the laws in your community.
  • Think about what you post online. Do not share private information on the Internet.
  • If you learn martial arts and let’s people know that, bullies might not touch you.
  • Respect everyone

What to do if you’re bullied

Use non-violent method

  • Stay calm. It’s natural to get mad by bullies, but that’s what they want. Instead, try counting to 10 or take a deep breath with a “poker face”.
  • Look at your bullies and tell them to stop. Don’t say anything including threats, insults, racism, or even compliments to bullies. Don’t show them that you care much about the things they say.
  • Quickly look for an escape route and walk away.
  • If the bullies get too far, find an adult to stop the bullying on the spot or report them to school administrator or police.

If thing goes bad

  • Let’s your opponents start the fight ( if they started the fight you will get less trouble with school, and the law)
  • If they throw things at you, try to avoid the objects, especially sharp objects. Don’t block those objects with your body parts, you will get injured.
  • If you are small, just run. If you are big enough, use your size at advantage: stand up tall, ball up your fists, and puff out  your chest. You may scare bullies.
  • If  fighting is not avoidable,  keep your balance and do not let you fall. Try to move around, dodge, and fight back. Resist as much as you can to get out of that position.

Private School or Public School

private-school-or-public-school

Parents are always trying to make the best decisions for their children’s future . When it comes to schooling, parents often have to work out whether to send their children to private school or public school. Each of the two has its own advantages and disadvantages that make them look better in a certain perspective compared to the other. In this article, Kila wish to help you decide which school is best for your family.

Location

Public schools are everywhere. The only concerning is  the zoning district of the public school you want or not.
For private schools, you’ll need to consider if the location is feasible for your family. Public schools provide transportation to and back from schools. Private schools may or may not.

Class Size

Class size is another factor that parents will look into when considering private or public school. Overcrowding of public school classrooms is one of the most common complaints about the public education system, a significant problem that inspires parents to seek to private school. But a school that is too small may not have enough money to support specialized programs.

Parents have to concern about how many children will the classroom teacher be responsible and what is the overall student to teacher ratio. Usually, lesser student to teacher ratio can lead to better results. Each student may be guided better by a teacher, giving him or her more opportunities to ask questions and seek help regarding the subjects

Tuition

The most obvious difference between public and private schools is tuition.

Most of public schools cannot charge tuition. However, they are often financed by governments which make them complicated. Public schools are part of a larger school system, and must follow the rules and regulations set by politicians.

In contrast, private schools generate their own funding, which typically comes from many sources: tuition, grants, and funds from community members. In numerous provinces and states, you can get tax breaks when you send your child to private school over a public school. This tax break can come in many different forms depending on what state or province you are in.

With private school, tuition can range from $4,000 per year up to more than $100,000. The questions are: Is it more important to you to spend the money on private school than treat your kids well in other respects? How much are you willing to sacrifice?

Academic Programs

Public schools offer a general program, designed for all. This usually includes math, English, reading, writing, science, history and physical education. In addition, many public schools offer programs in music, art, languages, technology, and career education too. What students learn is decided by the government.

In the other hand, private schools have the flexibility to create specialized programs for students. For example, private schools may use art or science in all classes, or teach students about military contents. They can create their own curriculum and assessment systems, although many choose to use standardized tests. Many parents are drawn to the alternative curriculums that private schools have to offer.

Admission Process

Most private schools have a selective admission process which requires testing before admittance. This controls student enrollment to allow those who are able to meet the demands of an advanced curriculum. For that reason, students in private school will perform near the same level.

On the other hand, public schools allow all students, regardless of any factors.

Conclusion

Kila hope you have basic information to decide private school or public school for your children. As a parent, you should visit schools and see what the schools and teachers are like. Find out the strengths and weaknesses of each school. Find out what is most important to your child, what will be beneficial in your child’s future. If you choose a school that focuses on something that does not interest your child you will just be throwing their school years away.
