A complete guide to identifying and dealing with all forms of school-age bullying.
More than half of all schoolchildren have been bullied. Although lip-service is often paid to anti-bullying policies, the torment of bullying continues to be real and widespread and the damage done is lasting.
This practical and thoughtful book is for everyone caught up in bullying of any kind. It explains what causes children to bully, why bullying is on the increase, what makes a child a victim and how children can develop coping skills to deal with problems at school and on the streets. A complete guide for all parents (and teachers), it shows you how to stay alert to problems, how to tackle them when they happen and how you may be able, with care and vigilance, to nip them in the bud.
There are lots of books on bullying for teachers and other professionals, books for children themselves and books on workplace bullying but nothing quite like this wide-ranging, up-to-date, proactive guide to every aspect of school-age bullying.
