Freeport: Bullying is a major concern in schools worldwide. About 28% of 12- to 18-year-old students reported they were bullied at school in the previous six months, according to the US Department of Justice.

Unfortunately, the majority of programs to combat bullying being introduced to schools only make the problem worse.
The prevailing method of dealing with bullies throughout schools in the United States is one that regards punishment as paramount, the logic of which is inherently flawed, according to studies conducted by Dr. Dennis Regling. By creating a realm for the drafting of foolhardy anti-bully laws that hold schools legally responsible for their students’ behavior, this system of counteracting bullying is compounding the issue, not resolving it.
According to Dr. Dennis Regling, author and educational presenter, the problem is that research, as well as real-life experience, has shown that most anti-bullying programs rarely reduce bullying and often result in an increase. Why is the world’s crusade to eradicate bullying failing? It’s because it was spawned by panic, and panic reduces rational thinking.
Both the American Psychological Association and the National Association of School Psychologists have warned schools as to the myriad of ways such policy causes more harm than good.
With bullying currently such a hot-button issue, the means in which it is handled needs to be re-evaluated. Author Dennis Regling has released his new book, “Everything I Need To Know About Bullies, I Learned In Prison: A Politically Incorrect Guide To Surviving High School.”
The book details why current programs don’t work and how they are endangering students. More importantly, it gives solutions to help keep your child safe.
