5 Things To Remember When People Ostracizing You In College
Being ostracized in college has a greater affect particular on the students’ behavior. It’s a dreadful situation that they need to overcome because sometimes it might lead to depression. Bullying is the first trauma that the students will face. As a parent you need to be prepared and haul your kid from that embarrassing experience. Let me tell some of the steps and advice to overcome such events or rather eliminate the ostracism. Or if not to eliminate completely but to minimize.
Keep calm. Assessment of the situation and keep calm is the number one on our list. An adolescent tend to be wild and uncontrollable at times. Confront and asked yourself. I know that it’s quite hard and discomforting but it’s going to be your best defense. But we all know how fragile they are when it comes to this sensitive matter. Protect yourself from bullying as simple as that.
Imbibe a good perspective. Don’t let yourself down by other’s bad gossip and rumors. It is not the end of the world and you are still capable to do the things that student able to do. Feeling worthless will not help you at all. Set a goal or a plan what would you do next. Just like what others say it was all about perspective and it was really up to you.
Talk to your real friends. Discuss with your friends what happened and seek for their advice. You must be comfortable to speak with them ( no hesitation to tell the truth and what exactly happened). A friend who always at your back and not afraid to tell what’s wrong with you. A friend who could focus and listen with your sentiments and empathizing you in the end.
Ignoring the things that happened in the past. Seems you could not change being ostracized in college, be strong and accept it. Show to their face that you already moved on and you don’t give a care about what happened in the past. Well, truth is you do, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll always have to think about it (since you already learned from it). Find ways to relax and don’t provide any reasons to be left out again.
If it becomes a harassment, take a legal step. Harassment from his/her peer could negatively affect your child (especially in his/her self-esteem). There are many cases that they don’t want to go back to school. Sometimes parents don’t usually feel that their kids has been harassed and they overlooked it. Explained to your kid that don’t let other people harass them and you’ll take a legal action if they do so. Gave them a psychological treatment for the harassment trauma.
