Finally a book that gets to the point and says it like it is. Bullying is a problem in every school and at every level of our society and these moms discussed it openly from the heart. Yes, kids will be kids but bullies will be bullies!! There is a difference. My daughter has been being bullied all through her grade school years. I gave a copy to her teacher and I am tempted to leave one on the doorstep of the kid who has been bullying her. Parents need to face the facts on both ends. Even the parents of the kids who are doing the bullying. There is a solution! Hats off to these moms for having the courage to write this book!

I just finished "When Your Child is Bullied," and it's the best resource I've read to date on the subject. I began reading the bullying literature while writing my middle-grade, bully-drama novel "A Warrior's Soul," and I was surprised at how little was available. What was available was extraordinarily simplisistic and shallow. This book takes a no holds barred approach, and it's emphasis on early, direct, and forceful intervention *with consequences* for the bully makes it a must read. My only quibble-and it is a quibble-is that they don't address self-defense for our kids. So much bullying happens outside the view of adults and teachers. To their credit, they recognize, briefly and with too much political correctness in my view, that kids sometimes have no choice but to fight back...and it's effective. Still, their emphasis on adult intervention and holding adults accountable for bad behavior is long overdue and a refreshing perspective in this important debate. Well done. Highly recommended by this parent and author.

This book was so helpful to me as I have a son who was bullied when he was in middle school....every teacher and principal should be required to read this book as I feel that alot of the bullying could be diminished if school's would adopt a no tolerance policy. The authors did a superb job guiding the reader through the many aspects of this frightening experience. Thank You! Easy read and worth sharing with your children.

fantastic book. gave me a clear path to follow when approaching the school regarding my child being bullied. The part about avoiding peer-to-peer relationship resolution was SO helpful. Glad I read it BEFORE I went into my meeting with the school. I read up on all the local legislation, school board policies etc. Stated my case calmly, provided proof and stated what I wanted done. I felt successful. Time will tell. Thank you for this book!

As a former school member this is a recommended read for anyone interested in solutions rather than just talking about the problem. Bullying does not discriminate - it is a problem at schools whether they are rural or urban, large or small, wealthy or not. All schools have identified the problem but are at a loss as how to solve the problem. This book provides the roadmap that educators and parents need to get to real solutions not just talk or hype. What a great resource for parent networks within the school to begin to put an end and help all kids become successful. Let's really talk about "no child left behind" - this is the way to start.

As an educator for 28 years, I have witnessed bullying year after year. This book, When Your Child Is Being Bullied: Real Solutions for Parents, Educators & Other Professionals, provides the information for new and "seasoned" teachers. I am also a parent of a 12 year old boy. I loved how the authors gave suggestions for monitoring your child in this world of "social media". It's time parents and educators step up to the plate and use this book as a tool to guide our children. I highly recommend this book!!!!
