The new book "I Wish I Knew What To Do?!...On What To Say To Get Bullies To Leave You Alone" is a collection of 95 essays, written by teen authors from across the country, who share their personal advice about experiences as either being the bully, victim or bystander to not only their peers, but to parents and educators on how to stop this growing trend.
The MindOH! Foundation "Teens Tell It Like It Is" collection of essays is hand selected from their annual Character's Cool Contest. Over 5,500 students participated in the 2005 contest which consisted of a survey and essay contest on bullying and cyberbullying. Student's ages 11 to 18 revealed that girls bully more than boys and 82% of the students surveyed said they had either been the victim of, were the bully or had witnessed bullying and cyberbullying activities. These teen authors said they want adults to listen to them and take bullying episodes seriously. Additionally, they want tools provided to help them learn, understand and even self-regulate bullying events.
