Why Are Kids being Bullying At School

Why Are Kids being Bullying At School

I had a conversation with my daughter the other day about my grandson that just turn nine years old and has a GPA average of 3.56 he is in the 3rd grade. And my grandson is very sweet, well mannered young boy. My daughter said his teachers adore him as well; but some of his classmates like to pick with him and just be mean to him . This really hurts his mom and myself when I hear that this is going on. When I heard about it. I did some research on kids being bullied in school. Warning Signs are usually children that have problems at home and abuse, some may be very ill from other health issues. When a child is being bullied, some of the signs are usually signs that may point to a bullying problem are: 1.Unexplainable injuries 2.Lost or destroyed clothing, books, electronics, or jewelry 3.Changes in eating habits, like suddenly skipping meals or binge eating. Kids may come home from school hungry because they did not eat lunch. 4. Difficulty sleeping or frequent nightmares 5.Declining grades, loss of interest in schoolwork, or not wanting to go to school. 6.Sudden loss of friends or avoidance of social situations 7.Feelings of helplessness or decreased self esteem 8.Self-destructive behaviors such as running away from home, harming themselves, or talking about suicide these are Signs a Child is Being Bullied.

However, be aware that not all children who are bullied exhibit warning signs: Kids that are doing the bullying to others will typically: 1.Get into physical or verbal fights 2.Have friends who bully others 3.Are increasingly aggressive 4.Have unexplained extra money or new belongings

5,Blame others for their problems, 6.Don’t accept responsibility for their actions. 7.Are competitive and worry about their reputation or popularity.

These type of children do not understand the meaning of being loved by others, and sometimes these kids may be very well be spoiled kids, and just used to having their on way.


The Story of Joseph in the bible: Genesis 37/ bullying was told in the beginning of the old testament.

Joseph’s the son of Jacob and because Joseph was one of the youngest sons, his father spent more time with him, and he became very special to him. So Jacob had a special robe made for Joseph. (They didn’t have jackets back then, so this was a very special jacket). It was very beautiful and had every color you could imagine in it All of Joseph’s older brothers saw this and they got very jealous. The word jealous means that Joseph’s brothers disliked him because they thought his father liked him more, and because he got the special coat. They got so jealous they couldn’t even say a kind word to him.

One day Joseph had a dream, and he went to go tell his brothers. He said, “Guess what? Last night I had a strange dream. We were tying up bunches of grain out in the field when suddenly my bunch stood up, while all of yours gathered around and bowed to me.” The brothers looked at each other in disgust, but Joseph continued. “Then I had another dream that the sun, moon, heaven, and stars bowed down to me.”

“Who do you think you are?” The brothers said. “Do you think that you are better than all of us? Do you think that we would ever bow down to you?” This made the brothers dislike Joseph even more.

So, in conclusion I am trying to illustrate that people have been taking advantage of the weaker ones since the beginning of time AND IT NEEDS TO STOP NOW!

We’ve as pastors, teachers, community leaders must come together and help put a stop to this and save our children. I am looking for supporters, volunteers, and partners to join me in my program.

WOG Forever Ministry/ Receive the Holy Spirit

Published August 26, 2010 by Pastor Lenora

WOG Forever Ministry.

Receive the Holy SpiritAs His child, your loving heavenly Father wants to give you the supernatural power you need to live this new life.

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened… If ye…know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
LUKE 11:10,13

All you have to do is ask, believe, and receive! Pray, Father, I recognize my need for Your power to live this new life. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit. By faith, I receive Him right now! Thank You for baptizing me. Holy Spirit, You are welcome in my life.

Congratulations! Now you’re filled with God’s supernatural power. Some syllables from a language you don’t recognize will rise up from your heart to your mouth. (See 1 Cor. 14:14.) As you speak them out loud by faith, you’re releasing God’s power from within and building yourself up in the Spirit. (See v. 4.) You can do this whenever and wherever you like.

It doesn’t really matter whether you felt anything or not when you prayed to receive the Lord and His Spirit. If you believed in your heart that you received, then God’s Word promises you did. “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:24). God always honors His Word; believe it!
