Review


“This is an important book on an important subject. We are glad to see such a broad and considered approach taken on the complex subject of bullying.”
(Ben Cohen, MBE, Chairman, Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation)


Bullied is an excellent how-to guide for addressing bullying and creating a culture of acceptance and respect. I can’t recommend this book enough to parents and educators.”
(Trudy Ludwig, Children's Advocate & Best-selling Author of Confessions of a Former Bully)


Bullied is a captivating blend of stories, research and guidance. Goldman’s odyssey as a blogger mom at the epicenter makes her a powerful voice for positive change. Her insights make this a comprehensive and indispensable bullying prevention resource.”
(Judy S. Freedman, M.S.W., L.C.S.W., author of Easing the Teasing-Helping Your Child Cope with Name-Calling, Ridicule, and Verbal Bullying)


“A well-researched guide to combating bullying…This book is a must-read for parents with children of any gender. Valuable support, resources and concrete actions for safely navigating the social wilderness of adolescence.”
(Kirkus)

“Carrie Goldman has written a compelling, well-organized book providing a depth of knowledge about a national crisis and deftly showing how people working together in schools and communities can eradicate bullying.” (New York Journal of Books)

From the Back Cover

Winner of National Parenting Publications Award and Mom's Choice Award!

Everybody knows how it feels to be ostracized, isolated or taunted, but most of us are at a loss when it comes to knowing how to make it better. In Carrie Goldman's groundbreaking book, Bullied, she offers concrete solutions for parents, teachers, and kids on how to effectively respond to painful situations—whether it is normal social conflict or more serious bullying.

Goldman's warm, engaging style combines the real-life stories of bullies, victims, bystanders, and their parents with the most cutting edge scientific research to provide a thorough analysis of cruelty in our culture. She explores how the pop culture permeates homes and schools, often impacting the way kids view those who are different from the accepted norm.

Bullied comprehensively addresses issues such as:

  • The media's influence on aggression and bullying
  • How to prevent cyberbullying, or how to manage cyberbullying once it has begun
  • How to safely shift from being a bystander into a witness or an ally
  • Effects of bullying on the brain, both for bullies and for victims
  • Steps to take with the school if you are being bullied or sexually harassed
  • A comprehensive look at restorative justice as a non-punitive response to bullying
  • Techniques to help you deal with verbal taunting in the moment it is happening
  • Identifying the difference between normal social drama and bullying
  • Knowing when to ask for help and how to access effective help

The mother of a bullied first grader, Goldman's inspiring true story triggered an outpouring of support from online communities around the world. Bullied is a research-based book born from Goldman's blog post about the ridicule her daughter suffered for bringing a Star Wars thermos to school—a story that went viral on Facebook and Twitter before exploding everywhere, from CNN.com and Yahoo.com to sites all around the world. More than 200 people were interviewed for the book, including parents, teachers, kids, social workers, authors, celebrities, researchers, psychologists, actors, actresses, and school administrators. It is a wealth of knowledge packaged in a fascinating read.

What I appreciate about Carrie Goldman's book Bullied, is that she approaches the issue, first as a parent of a child who's being targeted.
Annie
I found this anti-bullying book very readable, written from the heart as well as the head.

This is not philosophy, this is a must read guide. I liked the straight forward style and feel I'll be able to advise my kids in a more relevant style now. Recommended.

I'm thrilled to be reviewing Bullied: What Every Parent, Teacher, and Kid Needs to Know About Ending the Cycle of Fear by Carrie Goldman during anti-bullying week at the public schools, and specifically at my school to "my" kids.

In Bullied: What Every Parent, Teacher, and Kid Needs to Know About Ending the Cycle of Fear author Carrie Goldman explains the impetus for her writing a book on bullying: "In November 2010, I wrote a [blog] post called 'Anti-Bullying Starts in the First Grade' for my blog, Portrait of an Adoption. I was concerned because my daughter, Katie, was upset about being teased for carrying a Star Wars water bottle. Apparently, Star Wars was only "for boys. (pg. xi) " Goldman's six year-old daughter Katie was being bullied for, among other things, her Star Wars backpack and water bottle.

In response to her post, the cyberspace community rose to Katie's defense in an overwhelming show of support for young girls who love Star Wars... and all other people who have been bullied for being different in one way or another. The outpouring of encouragement, as well as the numerous stories shared, spurred Goldman on to researching bullying. What she found is humbling and shows that, although some progress has been made, more work needs to be done.

"We are closely tracking bullying and taking steps to reduce aggressive acts. We are counting the victims. A 2010 study by the National Center for Education Statistics found that 32 percent of students between the ages of twelve and eighteen reported being bullied within six months prior to being surveyed. Of the students surveyed, 62 percent reported having been bullied once or twice a year, 21 percent once or twice a month, 10 percent once or twice a week, and 7 percent reported being bullied every day.

Carrie Goldman's "Bullied" is an excellent example of what happens when parents are forced to become activists, and Goldman's knowledge, passion, and understanding of the topic of bullying shines in this book. "Bullied" hits the target when it comes to what causes so much of this behavior: rigid rules on how boy and girls can look or act. When we break down stereotypes, we find that we are more alike than different, and "Bullied" offers practical advice on how to turn around a bullying situation with your child.
I highly recommend this book to parents and educators.

As a parent, grandparent I was astounded how often this is happening. As an adoptive parent, this was insightful on a whole different level. There were so many different issues that honestly never entered my mind.

I have taken this book to heart....this should be in EVERY families libraries, and NOT on Kindle. IN PURE BOOK form, that can be reached for, often, and that can be lent out, sparingly, you will want it back! Better yet? BUY the book for your children who have children, your friends...GREAT holiday gift, AND, Baby showers....Hey, we used to give Dr. Spock's books , but this is a fabulous read for new moms too...ok, we can wait for them to get the babies home for a few weeks....BUT...the point....Bullying starts as EARLY as WE allow it to start.

My son will be reading this and has decided to do an English paper on it, and yes will be using this book as a reference. This book is THAT good!

Please, pick it up, read it, share it, whether by book clubs, just talking or blogging about it, but share....Our children need us , our grandchildren need us, Hell, our neighborhood kids need us....We need to be the kind of adults that help our young ones stop this atrocity.....

And of course...........5 STARS!!!!

Happy Reading......

Taking a personal experience of her daughter's being taunted because of a lunchbox choice (STAR WARS--don't mess with it) and taking it to her blog, where the support received was overwhelming, Goldman turned her attentions to the issue of bullying. Lucky us, we get stories, information and really concrete ideas about how to make the playground, the lunch table, the classroom and the neighborhoods better, kinder places--for ALL.

I'm updating this review to add how critical this book is, for all of us--parents, older kids (teens), young adults, teachers, professionals that work with kids.

This book offered a great perspective on why kids bully and what we can do about it. I especially appreciated the suggestions on how to create an environment less likely to produce bullies and how to create a community where kids can help others when they see something wrong. A great book for parents, educators and older kids!

Format: Hardcover
As a clinical professional, I often find it difficult to find resources for parents that contain information presented in a way that speaks to their experience without being bogged down with blathering academia. Carrie's book aims to bridge the gap between the objective attempts to analyze the complex issues related to bullying and the subjective experience of those who have experienced it first hand. This is no small task, yet she nails it. "Bullied - What every parent, teacher and kid needs to know about ending the cycle of fear," is a comprehensive work that explores this very complex and often controversial topic in a thought provoking, practical way. It's a must have resource for professionals working on the front lines with children and families. Also, as a parent of two, I found the book to be full of conversation starters and realistic ideas for talking to my own kids about bullying.
