Jennifer Thomson's 'Bullying, A Parent's Guide' is a fantastic book. We can all, I imagine, relate in one way or another. And it is the relating that makes it exceptionally difficult when your child is being bullied at school - you don't want them to feel like you were made to feel, why would you? And that's exactly where this healing, calming, no-nonsense book absolutely comes into its own.
You can take a deep breath and look at things in a more rational manner because of the way that the author has laid each topic out. It is eminently readable and exceptionally helpful. What's more, from personal experience and from having to learn as we went along, she has covered everything, and more.
I wish I had this book when I was a kid - and when our son was having his own hard time. I think everyone could benefit from this book, even though it is aimed at the parents of children who are being bullied. An excellent read.

When you're looking for a book on bullying, you want it 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.

Format: Paperback
First I would like to point out that this book is more than necessary for the world we live in today. The book has a lovely feeling of balance. It has statistics, stories and advice. What I also love is that this book is that it shows that bullying is a problem in more places than just the United States. What I found best was that it gave PLENTY of scenarios, not just for kids being bullied but for parents to measure against their own children to see if their child is being bullied.
When I was in middle school and high school I was bullied so this book hits home. I am also a new mother so I found helpful duality in it. This book points out the effects of bullying but the signs of it. It also shows that racism has a face on the bullying poster. When you see the statistics it makes you think about all of the people who have taken their lives as a result. This book shows that if our children can't come to us then we as parents need to take some responsibility and get to know our children well enough to help our child through the pain and help them triumph.
This book also shows that even the most AMAZING people have been bullied, so just because it's happening to you doesn't mean that you won't rise above and flourish. This book also exposes the truth about the stereotypes that bullying isn't something that "just happens" or that it "is a part of growing up". This books lets you know that it doesn't have to be and that NOT everyone is targeted. This book should have been passed around at multiple high schools and middle schools because the reality and kind words that this book has to offer is priceless.
