About the Author

As the executive director and founder of Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International, author Irene van der Zande has empowered thousands of parents and other caring adults around the world to take charge of the emotional and physical safety of their kids and other loved ones. As a child who was bullied long ago, Irene promised herself that she would never forget what it was like to feel so alone, sad, and scared. She believes passionately that kids have the right to be safe and the responsibility to respect the safety of others. She is committed to giving adults the tools they need to create cultures of caring, respect, and safety for everyone, everywhere. Irene established Kidpower as a nonprofit organization in 1989 in partnership with educators, parents, mental health experts, child safety specialists, law enforcement officials, and other caring adults. She has led the organization ever since. Instead of using fear to teach children about violence prevention, Kidpower makes it fun to learn to be safe.This is important because kids learn better when they're having fun. The Kidpower Positive Practice Method empowers kids with habits that build their awareness, confidence, and personal power, making them less likely to become victims of bullying, abduction, abuse and other types of physical or emotional violence. Operating in over 20 countries, Kidpower has reached over 2 million people of all ages through in-person workshops and events, publications tailored for different needs, on-line educational resources, videos, and long distance seminars and one-on-one coaching.

More About the Author

In 1985, when her family was young, in a public place with people standing all around, Irene van der Zande protected a group of small children, including her own two, from a man who was threatening to kidnap them. She stopped him by yelling and by ordering a bystander to help. The kids were fine. What they saw was that Irene yelled, and the bad guy ran away - but Irene wasn't fine. She kept wondering, "What if he'd knocked me down?" "What other children did he go on to assault?" "How will my kids be able to protect themselves when they go out into the world on their own?"

She took a self-defense workshop to answer the first question. But she kept meeting people who would tell her stories that started with the words "If only.." "If ONLY, when my youth group leader dropped all the kids off except for me and started to touch me in a way that my parents had told me never to let someone touch me, if ONLY I had known how to stop him. If ONLY, I had known how to tell my parents what happened. My life would have been so much easier."

Prior to this experience, Irene's career had been as a community organizer who helped develop services for many nonprofits working with people of all ages facing difficult life challenges due to poverty, prejudice, and disabilities. She had also just written a book called "1,2, 3... The Toddler Years", which is used in early childhood education programs across the US and has been translated into Chinese and Dutch.

Irene's plan was to go on writing about child development, but, as she looked at the 15 girls in her Girl Scout troop, Irene thought about the rape crisis center statistic of 1 in 3 girls being sexually assaulted before they were 18 years old, and she thought to herself, "That's FIVE of them! Which five girls is it okay with me that this happens to?" The answer of course, was, "NONE of them!"

Realizing that she couldn't be with her kids all the time, Irene gathered educators, mental health professionals, law enforcement officials, martial artists, health care providers, and other parents to establish Kidpower in 1989. She has served as the executive director, primary author, and trainer for the organization ever since. She has directly taught thousands of children, teens, and adults all over the world to take charge of their emotional and physical safety. She has also trained thousands of parents, educators, and other caring adults in what they need to know and do to protect their kids - and in how to use Kidpower's Positive Practice Method (TM) to make it fun for kids to learn to stay safe.

Today, Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International is a global nonprofit leader dedicated to providing effective and empowering child protection, positive communication, and personal safety for all ages and abilities. Kidpower programs have protected over 3 million children, teens, and adults from bullying, abuse, harassment, assault, kidnapping, and other violence through greater awareness, action, and skills. In collaboration with many partners world-wide, each September Kidpower leads International Child Protection Month to honor, support, and inspire adult leadership in protecting young people from harm and preparing them to take charge of their own well-being.

Irene is an inspiring speaker, a dedicated leader, and a prolific author whose writing is filled with humor, memorable stories, and practical advice. Her many books include 1,2, 3 ... The Toddler Years; The Kidpower Book for Caring Adults: Personal Safety, Self-Protection, Confidence, and Advocacy for Young People; Bullying: What Adults Need to Know and Do to Keep Kids Safe; the Relationship Safety Handbook for Teens and Adults; One Strong Move: Cartoon Illustrated Self-Defense Lessons; Earliest Teachable Moment: Personal Safety for Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers; the Kidpower Safety Comics, the Kidpower Youth Safety Comics, and the Fullpower Safety Comics series; and training manuals for educators.

Format: Paperback
I have seen the positive impact of Kidpower resources within various schools and organizations. Each product has had a profound effect on increasing the well being of all students, teachers, and parents reached by their words. Bullying - What Adults Need to Know and Do to Keep Kids Safe is both entertaining while providing information regarding how to deal with bullying in a proactive and sustainable way. The techniques, practices, and methods covered throughout the book can be applied to all walks of life, not just those who are victims of bullying.

Format: Paperback
This is the first time I have found and read a book that deals with bullying in a very hands-on and unique way.
The book has has given me so MANY simple, yet comprehensive, ways to help kids deal with bullying.
I like the way it helps me as an adult to DO something! To actually give kids tools on how to handle bullying and to get ideas on how I as an adult can support kids.
A extremely practical book - and the great thing is the kids love learning the practices!
I would recommend this book to any adult who wants to do something positive against bullying - here is your chance to get knowledge and ideas!

I just finished reading "Bullying: What adults need to know to keep kids safe" (by Irene Van derSand) WOW!!!! This is a must read for any parent, teacher, school administrator--any responsible adult who works with children and cares about both physical AND emotional safety of children. I absolutely loved it. It is well-organized, describing step by step what to do, and covers all of the important topics. It aligns with what I teach: non-violence but assertive empowerment to help break the cycle of bullying. It includes examples of verbal responses for standing up to all kinds of bullying situations. I appreciate the emphasis on learning a skill, then practicing it to help it become engrained (in my program we call it "practice, practice") because it's hard to think of nice things to say when someone is bullying! Adults should provide opportunities to practice over and over how and what to say in a way that will contribute to reducing or ending the problem rather than adding to the problem. You will NOT be disappointed with this book!!!
