Bullying and the effects of its violence cause a tremendous amount of stress and suffering for children, making it vital for parents, teachers, friends, family members, and children to take a STAND. A guide in helping children win the battle against bullying, this book features tips that have helped thousands of children build up confidence, increase their self-esteem, establish bridges of communication with their parents, and better understand bullying and its effects.
From recognizing when bullying is occurring to discerning whether or not your child is the bully themselves, this book lays out, in simple terms, the root of bullying and how to talk to kids about it. The author, who was bullied himself as a child, peppers the content with his own personal experiences in facing and overcoming childhood bullying, and tells how having an open dialogue with young children can turn bystanders, who ignore or participate in bullying, into upstanders who stand against it. The book also includes an interactive workbook that parents can explore with their kids.
