bully changes. Summarized
from a Success Report in the Field of Education, p36 of Bruno Gröning
Circle of Friends Schooling Letter, Spring, 2019.
From August 2014, the 8 year
old boy who was strong and tall and who had come to Germany from Nigeria
with his family, stood out from others due to his behavior. He was insolent,
other children or adults and liked to provoke
them. When this created disputes
he often hit them, not showing any remorse.or.compassion.
He enjoyed seeing others fall down and be hurt as they often played soccer.
When he would became angry his gaze
turned cold, hard and dark. He was unreasonable and always blamed others
when he was approached about his behavior. At one time he kicked a child,
threatened him violently and went for his throat.
Guenther Hobelmann tried
to apply that which was learned in educational training. He was a caregiver
at the school where this bully was and who also was a Bruno
Gröning follower. He noted that there was a lot of tension in
the family and decided to take in the Heilstrom
for the boy. He states that about two weeks later he noticed that something
had changed, both in him and the boy.
I remember that at the beginning
of December 2016, I finally managed to give the boy completely to Bruno
Bruno, you help". Soon after that, the boy's
behavior normalized. He was more relaxed and played peacefully with other
children. Something within him had been turned around.
In August 2017, the boy went
to secondary school and fit well into the new class and continues to behave
change from a scornful, cold bully to a peaceful, friendly boy is inexplicable."....Marita
A sad ending.as
a result of bullying:
"I am reading with much interest
your thoughts on bullies.
I have never been a bully, but have protected a few from being bullied
at school as I was growing up.
"I came to Australia from
Ireland at the age of eight and was the butt of many jokes when I first
started school. But I knew how to look after myself and, having three brothers
"I believe some people think
simplistically about being bullied and think it is just a bit of harmless
teasing on the playground. Obviously, it is not. It can make people feel
very alone and isolated, and, in the case of one of my family members,
can lead to suicide.
"Although I was born in Ireland,
my mother was Australian and when we came out here we went to visit one
of her aunts.
"Aunty Irene lived in a big
rambling home in the hills, with loads of nooks and crannies for us kids
"I remember vividly slowly
opening a door, only to have it slammed back in my face. I tried it again
and the same thing happened. When I asked my auntie who was in there, she
said it was her son and that he didn't like talking to people.
"A few weeks later we learned
that he had committed suicide, hanged himself in his bedroom. It was very
sad and I remember that my aunty never really got over it. I also learned
that he had been relentlessly bullied at school, emotionally and physically,
"I will always remember that
day. I could practically feel his pain through the door. Years later, I
met some of the people who had bullied him and they were tormented by the
fact that he had taken his life.
"There are no winners when
it comes to bullying and I think parents have to take the issue seriously.
And, at the same time, help their kids to deal with it themselves and make
their own decisions. There is nothing worse than an interfering parent,
which can at times exacerbate
the situation." ...Annette B. as reported
