This is an eye opening book about the problem of bullying. It doesn't stop there though. It gives strategies and insights to help you effectively prevent bullying in and toward your own children and grandchildren. A must read!
I wish I would have read this book 30 years ago when my children were growing up. I would have taught them how to stand up for themselves. This was a Christian book with insights that I had never read before. WONDERFUL!!! I am now going to pass it on to my grandson to read.
My husband and I have started reading this book and I am about half way through. It has caused me to re-think some of the things I say as a parent and has encouraged us to help our child be good rather than nice. He has begun to show courage rather than 'bow down' to easily to the wishes of others. I highly recommend this book.
I read this years ago when my kids were tots, loved it, and passed it on to a friend. Now, 5 years later, I've bought another copy and I'm enjoying it even more. This is about parenting with long-term vision, grounded on faith in Christ.
Reaaly hits the key issues raising children today. How to bring them up strong in their beliefs and morals. How not to conform to worldy values. Parenting by the Book, was a better book all around, however there are many good points in this also.
I liked the chapter about Courage and Integrity. often we teach kids to avoid trouble which encourages indifference and cowardess. The chapter about Bullies and Victims had an important emphasis on the role of the by stander who needs to show courage and stand with the "victim: of bullying.
