Cases of bullying are still being discovered. Well, the school in Cambridge England is one solution to ‘save’ the victims of bullying. Its name is Red Balloon Learner Center which was founded since 1996 by Dr Carrie Herbert MBE.
“We have experts who are ready to help and care for bullying victims who feel they can no longer go to school not only victims of bullying, but traumatized children such as agoraphobia, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and rape victims , “Carrie quoted from the Red Balloon school website.
Red Balloon keeps these kids excited about raising their self-esteem, building their confidence, encouraging them to respect people and control their lives.
“We have four branches, in Cambridge, Norwich, NW London and Reading, as well as virtual schools (the Internet) .Each school provides individual and small group learning with secondary curricula, social development and therapy programs,” Carrie said.
Carrie was moved to set up a school because she felt that bullying victims could not be left alone. More than 16,000 children in England between the ages of 11 and 15 are not attending school because of being bullied.
“Since I started school at Red Balloon, I became more confident, happier and friend, I got a really good education, the teachers understood and they encouraged me to do things I did not think I could do. I look forward to the future, “said Ben, one of the students at Red Balloon.
Related cases of bullying, according to child and adolescent psychologists, Yasinta Indrianti, MPsi, from EduPsycho Research Institute, when children become victims of bullying, parents must approach children first. Give comfort to a new child can enter the child’s heart. So the child can take advice from his parents.
“It would be harder to open children’s hearts if they do not feel comfortable to their parents, but when parents are able to provide comfort and security, the child will immediately seek out his parents because he knows that with his or her parents the child will feel safe. they ‘caught’ the case of bullying, “said the psychologist who often called Sinta.
