4YP Radio for Anti-Bullying Week at The Orchard Centre: Tia and Tommy
In this podcast from HeadStart Wolverhampton, two young people from The Orchard Centre in Wolverhampton discuss their experiences of bullying and their thoughts about why bullying occurs, how schools and other organisations should react to it, and how their experiences have changed their lives and views of themselves.
The views they express in the conversation are their own. It’s not an easy listen, but hearing about bullying in the words of young people themselves really drives home the life-changing impact that bullying has.
It’s easy to wrap the topic of bullying in slogans (‘Stop Bullying’) without truly understanding the impact that it can have upon a young person. Hearing the two young people in this podcast describe their experiences really emphasizes that bullying is not a ‘normal part of childhood’.
