Review:

How many times have you picked up the phone and listened to parents concerns about their child being teased, picked on or bullied at school? . . . Through real-life scenarios and clear examples, myths are dispelled and readers are guided to a greater understanding of risk and protective factors. . . . School psychologists can offer this book to parents as a resource independently or as part of a parent group. Schools that already have a bullying prevention program will find this manual an excellent component to enhance parent involvement. --Mary Jean McDonald, Ph.D., New York School Psychologist Newsletter

This guide is a great resource for working with parents on the issue of bullying. . . . The authors point out the importance of emotional intelligence an area parents do have control over, unlike the influence of television, the media, music, and peers. . . . Parents can also use this book in helping their children build the skills necessary to protect themselves from being bullied. --Jane Zobel, INSSWA Networker, Indiana School Social Workers Association

Like most school staff members, parents are not sure how to handle the problem of bullying. Those who ask for guidance will find it in this excellent resource. The authors start with a clear definition of bullying, using their PIC criteria: P-bullying is purposeful, I-imbalanced, and C-continual. The bully acts with a set agenda, has some type of power over the target, and repeats the behavior over time. . . . Parents need to read this book to help their children by being armed with the latest information and not the myths from their childhoods. --C.J. Bott, VOYA, Voice of Youth Advocates
