I have never been part of a clique, though at school I was in a small group - all of us were the misfits and those that were bullied, so we formed our own group and stuck together.
I group hopped when I was I'm school. But I was cyber bullied in a pre Facebook world. Surprisingly by a group of boys in my core group of friends. It got so bad my mom had to talk to their parents and my teachers.
My favorite TV shows about mean girls have to be Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars!
I remember watching Gossip Girl when it first came out with my mom but I didn't see too much of it. My husband and I got completely sucked in to Pretty Little Liars though when we rented it from the library.
Two of my favorite mean girl movies are Saved and The Heathers. <3
And clueless! That was a great clique movie.
I've seen that one! cx I never heard of The Heathers though x:
Ashley-Heathers is a great cheesy 80s film about a group of man girls. It stars Winona Ryder. It was part of the inspiration for Mean Girls. :-) I think it's very funny!
I got not nessecarily bullied in 6th grade, but four of my closest friends suddenly dumped me near the end of the school year and I was extremely hurt. My school doesn't really have cliques, but now that I look back on it, those four friends who dumped me are the closest thing to a clique
Something similar happened to me :-( I'm sorry you had to go through that!
To end bullying, I would have a pyscologist who really understands kids come in and do all of those deomstrations (holding up a glass of water for long time and even though it weighs a little, the little becomes a lot over time. crumble and ripping up paper and then saying sorry) to show how words hurt
My favorite would be Mean Girls but I have never been part of the mean clique. There have been plenty of times when I was bullied for various reasons, it sucked but at least I don't care too much about whatever they have to say. To end bulling and cliques? I personally think that is somethin g that can never truly end because there will always be a new bully to replace the one whom has changed his or her ways. If I had to start somewhere, I guess a good way to go would be having those who've experienced bullying come share thier stories and explain how it has affected their life
I tend to agree! There will always be some sort of bullying. And sharing personal experiences is the best way to break the cycle!
