Abstract

The phenomena of bullying at schools have occurred very often. Although there have been many studies conducted, those studies have not yet been well-balanced compared to the continuous presence of various bullying cases at schools from time to time up to present. The purpose of this study is to find out the alternative solutions to prevent bullying at schools through religious approaches and the empowerment of familial and parental functions. This study applied a qualitative approach. 138 fifth semester students of PAI Study Program from the Faculty of Tarbiyah at IAIN Curup were engaged as the participants. The data were collected using in-depth interviews and focus group discussion (FGD). The findings of this study revealed that 135 (95.86%) students stated that maximizing the function and role of family in childcare could significantly prevent bullying at schools; and only 3 (4.14%) students thought that parents did not play a role in preventing bullying at schools. Subsequently, 138 (100%) students stated that children who practiced religious teachings in a proper way in their familial lives would behave positively outside the house. To sum up, family or parents with their authorities are very instrumental in the prevention of bullying at schools; and properly practicing religious teachings can prevent children from bullying at schools. The causes of bullying at schools are very comprehensive, and the resolution must also be comprehensive. The involvement of teachers, the community, the environment, the government, and the private sectors has not been adequate to overcome the problems as regards bullying at schools. Instruments in the form of religious teachings and the role of parents in family are needed to help prevent bullying at schools.
