#6744. This pamphlet helps parents identify and deal with bullying from both sides – having a child who is a bully and having a child who is bullied. The pamphlet includes the following scenarios:
- Kevin says Ben can’t play kickball because he’s too slow.
- Jennifer calls a new student a “slut” and spits on her.
- Rick pushes past David in the lunch line, then knocks David down when he protests.
Kids just being kids? Or boys and girls acquiring the habits, attitudes, and scars they’ll carry into adulthood?
Name-calling, exclusion, and downright assault are all forms of the peer abuse we call bullying. Studies (as well as experience) show us how damaging bullying can be to target, instigator, and bystander alike.
Clear and concise, this pamphlet helps parents understand the origins of this troubling behavior, as well as how to recognize and remedy it. The author’s sensible, how-to approach outlines the positive steps adults can take to raise more confident, better-behaved children who’ll have a happier future, beginning right now.
