Based on the topic, this is not the synopsis of Buli directed by multi-tasking actor Afdlin Shauki. Plus, it is outdated to talk about the film that has won several awards in FFM17 last few weeks. But the concept of the story is quite similar to what my little sister has to face, the difference is just my little sister is too skinny while Afdlin is BIG.
I just realized my little sister is being bullied when one day I was guiding her homework. I got confused because she has to do the same work for two books and while she was doing the second book, she folded the book so that she can get controlled of the book. Then, I asked her why she was doing the same homework, and then she said that her friend asked her to do. So, immediately, I told my sister to stop her homework but suddenly she started to cry. Then only, she told me the whole story and surprisingly, doing this girl homework is not the only one my sister has to go through.
Imagine a standard two girl can involve in this dramatic story, although I know she does not know the meaning of BULLY . Some people think bullying is just part of growing up and a way for young people to learn to stick up for themselves. But bullying can make young people feel lonely, unhappy and frightened. It makes them feel unsafe and think there must be something wrong with them. They lose confidence and may not want to go to school any more.
So, as a big sister, I advice my little sister how she should react and be confidence for herself since she afraid to go to school the following day. And this is proved when she came back from school the next day, happily she told me..
"Kak Long, tadi kan mase ***** nak conteng baju ika dengan pensel, ika tolak *****, lepas tu die kate ika garang"
And her brave action continues until now.. and now I just heard
"Kak Long, tadi kan mase ***** mintak duit, ika tak kasik, ika membebel dekat die"
"Tadikan ***** ajak ika pergi bookshop, ika tak nak, lepas tu die kate die tak nak kawan dengan ika, ika kate, tak nak kawan sudahlah"
As I can see, there are a lot of improvements from my little sister , and I am quite proud of myself because my words can build up her confidence. I am not teaching my little sister to revenge but showing some way to stand strong. So, those who has younger sister or brother, take a look at their behavior, be friend with them and I am sure they will tell you everything they want to say. Especially to elder sister or brother, we are the middle person between our siblings and our parents, therefore, make ourselves comfortable for them.
