The Cure for Bullying? Look Beyond the Schoolyard

The Cure for Bullying? Look Beyond the Schoolyard

My mom told me crying makes you appear weak. She didn’t say it quite in those words, but that was the essence. It was grade school then, second grade maybe. And she was trying to tell me not to let the bullies see me cry because then they would know they had won. She was trying to make me stronger. Unwittingly, I applied it across the board, and now I don’t cry, especially not if someone is around.

I tell you this not to elicit an emotional response, but rather to inform you of how children are told to deal with bullying. Gifted children and those who are not neurotypical can be especially hindered by bullying, and the solution is not, in fact, to just “suck it up.”

Girls have things easier, I admit, when it comes to bullying. We are less likely to be involved in a physical altercation. But words can sting too, and last a lifetime. At 24, I still remember vividly my freshman year of high school. I recall being told in eighth grade that I was made fun of behind my back. I should have graduated high school early, by at least a year, but beginning in grade school (as early as third grade) I played down my intellect to attempt to be accepted by my peers.

I’d like to tell you about children who are intelligent but were not in the appropriate educational atmosphere to utilize it, and what happens when they transfer into schools where both faculty and peers encourage intelligence and creativity. Three of the four Utz children transferred schools before they entered the sixth grade: my brother and youngest sister into a competitive college preparatory school, and me into an environment not suited for educational excellence. Every one of us was bullied before the transfer, but afterward my siblings thrived in such a positive learning environment. Dare I say it, they became popular.

When I was young, I knew I was special, but I didn’t know I was on the spectrum. I knew I was capable of awesome things, but I couldn’t imagine how to accomplish them. Knowing what I know now, I don’t wish that I had support from family, therapists, or school for my Asperger syndrome. Being high-functioning, I am mostly capable of handling myself in situations. What I do wish I had growing up is a gifted program, something that allowed me to use my intelligence instead of hiding it.


I’m going to advocate for something a little radical here. The system as we know it is flawed. October is Bullying Prevention month in schools, but that is not distributed throughout the rest of the social sphere. What starts as bullying in childhood transfers over to harassment, slander, and assault in the adult world. It is visible in the news media, in politicians’ treatment of each other, and in the way various groups of people are discussed and represented. Children behave the way mentors and parents do. In order for bullying to stop in schools, it must cease elsewhere first.

And we are also finding — after how much of this evil? — that being bullied (even _verbally_) inflicts severe and lifelong _physical_ damage on important parts of kids' brains:

Jose Andrews is my name, Some people keep questioning God, asking him why he allowed Satan to put in the world deadly diseases, but they never know that anything happening in this life, is just for a particular reason. Here is my story on how I was cured of schizophrenia by a herbal doctor Uwadia Amneifo using his herbal mixture. Few months ago, I realized I had some problem with my system, and later on I begin to forget things easily. I complained to my doctor after his text he said just a little problem with me, but that soon I will be fine. He prescribed for me and I was taking medicine according to his prescription but my condition was getting worse instead of coming down. So I went back to my doctor after some time, he said am having issues with my brain, this continues gradually until it became worse and I was diagnosed of schizophrenia and this disease is also known as Asperger's Syndrome. My doctor told me there is no cure to this disease that I have to live and die with it. It continued for one month and my system was almost shutting down before my cousin brother came to my house to visit and broke to us the news about a herbal doctor he heard about called doctor Uwadia Amenifo that cured some body of Stevens Johnson Syndrome. So he explained how he heard about this herbal doctor uwadia Amenifo and the kind of terrible diseases this doctor have cured. His words were very impressing and I had to give the doctor a try. We made contact with him and he said he can cure me. So my cousin made all necessary arrangement with him, and he prepared herbs and send to me in USA. I took the herbs according to his prescription and behold to cut long story short his herbs works perfectly well, and cured me of my schizophrenia. Today I am hale and healthy and evidence of my healthiness can been seen in this piece of note I wrote myself to tell the world about Herbal Doctor Uwadia Amenifo. Please if you know anyone suffering from brain disease, in a hurry contact Doctor Uwadia Amenifo on his email (doctoruwadiaamenifo@gmail.com), and his cell no is +2349052015874. I wish all suffering from brain problem quick recovery.

My name is Harrison Josephine; I’m here to share my testimony about Doctor Chukwu herbal medicine. How he cured my only son of 5 years old of his Autism, my son suffered this from birth, i looked for how to get rid of this Autism, but could not found any solution. Though i have always believed on herbal medicine, but not too long i saw some good news on the internet on how a herbal doctor by name Doctor Chukwu cured so many persons of various diseases, and viruses. So i also decided to contact the doctor those people talked about. I contacted him through his email, and i explained my problem to him, he said he has the cure for Autism and he assured me that he will cure my son, that all I have to do is to give him a try and trust him. I decided to give him a try because there is no harm in trying. So i started the process, and he prepared some herbs, and sent it to me here in my country, so i began to give it to my son according to how Doctor Chukwu prescribed it to my son , and behold it worked for my son very perfectly . I am happy to say that my son is free from Autism. Please if your son or daughter also have same, and or similar problem please rush to contact Doctor chukwu before it becomes too late. His email is (drchukwu22@gmail.com) and his phone number is +2348154800222. Website: http://drchukwuhealinghome.simplesite.com/

I never new there is power in ROOTS an HERBS until i met Dr AKIN MOMOH, a powerful Herbalist who gave me live again. My name is Harry Mark, i reside in Florida USA. After 7 years of Broken marriage, my Wife left me with one kid Ella. All because i was HEPATITIS B, I felt like my life was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a Great DR, Akin Momoh who i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great Haberlist, how he has helped so many people. He has helped people to bring back their EX and cure so many disease, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it was about a woman called Michele Paul, she testified about how Dr Akin, Root an HERBS, made her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Akin Momoh email address via:drakinmomoh@gmail.com. After reading all these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my problem to him and he assured me that in less than 2 months, i will get cure an my Wife will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work.He told me the items that will be used to prepared the Roots an Herbs, When he had finished the preparation of the Roots the next 4 days he sent it to my door step an follow the directive in the next 2 months i start seeing changings an behold i went for test i was negative feel of Hepatitis B an my Wife called me and she was begging for forgiveness just as Dr Akin Momoh has said, on this note i said there is every reason to share this testimony. Dr Akin Momoh, is a really gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and a genuine Dr to solve all your problems contact Dr Akin Okoh Momoh, through his mail: drakinmomoh@gmail.com or call His mobile number +2348154989405. He will help you solve all your problems. Once again thanks Dr Akin Momoh, for your good work.
