Our customer reviews

When you're looking for a book on bullying, you want a book to cover everything - how to understand it, spot it, respond to it, talk about it and most importantly, stop it in its tracks. If you are a parent, you know the worry and concern that your child will be the victim of ruthless teasing and taunting, or worse. This is a comprehensive guide on what to do every step of the way. It's like having a team of bullying experts in the room answering your every question. It is clear the author knows the painful experience of bullying victim, and is not simply an outsider looking in. This instantly resonated with me (I've been the target of a long-term 'bullying campaign', as the author puts it, myself). This allowed me to trust that she had something to say on the topic. At the same time, unlike other authors, she does not let her personal experience dominate the book, only support and enhance it. I loved how she broke down the distinctions between what is and what is not considered bullying, the multiple types and forms of bullying and how she offered keen insight into everyone affected by the bullying, widening the impact far beyond two individuals. Here are a few of the many things you will learn: 8 excuses your child will say to cover up bullying pg. 26-27 46 specific strategies to get your child to open up and talk about bullying (this could be worth the price of the book itself!) pg. 29-35 The myths about bullying pg. 38-44 How to approach the parents of your child's bully pg. 71-73 How to repair your child's shattered self-esteem pg. 87-94 When it comes to our kids, we all want them safe and happy. I can't imagine a more compact, practical resource for parents.show more
