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.
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.
I wish my parents had had a copy of this book! I also wish I'd had a copy when my own children were at school.
The author is honest about her own experience of being bullied as a child, and that is one of the things that gives the book its conviction and power. Her writing is clear and straightforward; her advice wise and practical. I'm sure that any parent reading this who is worried about their child being bullied will find it reassuring and helpful. It's full of information and advice - just what are the school's responsibilities and how should you approach them? Where else can you go for help? How can you help restore the self-confidence of a bullied child? What signs should you look out for? How can you make it easier for your child to talk to you? What organisations can help you and what should you do about bullying online? And what shouud you do if you fear your child may be bullying someone else?
This is a resource book par excellence, but it's more than that - it's full of compassion, understanding, wisdom, insight and hope. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
