By far the best book on bullying today,
This review is from: Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander, The (Paperback)
Barabara Coloroso thoroughly investigates all aspects of the bullying process in this book. Making bystanders just as accountable as the bully themselves, Ms. Coloroso sharply criticizes how today's society seems to focus only on the bully's ACT instead of the underlying feelings which cause such behavior.
She encourages parents and "responsible adults" to get involved in the hallways, playgrounds, and streets of our children's world. Not at all defeatist, Ms. Coloroso's attitude is one of seeking to break the cycle of violence through love, communication, and consequence.
All teachers, school administrators and parents of children all ages should grab a copy, pencil in hand to underline the nuggets of wisdom Ms. Coloroso offers us. She hands us the solution to a prevalent problem for kids. It is our job to relax our fists long enough to receive what she has to say and to implement it through the doable exercises she puts forth. Buy a copy. You'll be glad you did.

I enjoyed your review and I highly recommend you check out the book, Bully-Proofing Children: A Practical Hands-On Guide to Stop Bullying. Not only does this educator,who has successfully created curriculum in schools on the topic, define every aspect of the problem, speaks to bystanders and technology as enablers and describes in detail what parents and teachers must do to end it. It actually has stories to share with children and lessons to teach in the classroom. ... an incredibly detailed and practical guide.
