Books to Help Your Child Prevent School Bullying

Updated on August 17, 2013

Ensure Your Child is "Bully-Free" This and Every School Year!

Well, it's back to school time again. In trying to keep up with the times, I decided to create a back to school website of a different kind. While others are out searching for the right backpacks and electronic gadgets, I thought that the coolest thing for school that should be focused on this year is your child's safety. We all grew up and went to school. We know that as well as the newest form of bullying, called cyber-bullying, school bullying still exists. This has always been and will always be a problem. The best gift to give your child is a gift that will help them with not only their safety, but their emotional well-being, especially in the formative years. Try out these publications geared to help you and your kids, you will be glad you did.

Don't Pick on Me!

I certainly remember hearing those words, as well as probably saying them a few times when growing up. Most children fall victim to bullying of some sort at some point in their school years. I thought that I would create this website to help educate others and in this age of information, and be one step ahead of any bullying that may occur to your child. Prevention is the key. You don't want to wait until after your child falls victim to finally act. Hopefully, the information and publications below will help you. There is so much information on bullying, especially the cyber bullying that is happening today online; but please don't forget that kid in school who picks on others every day and is still there, and your son or daughter may not be telling you about him!

20-40% of bullying victims actually report being bullied.

Were You Ever Bullied in School? - Let us know if you were picked on and how it affected you!

          Children need to be taught compassion from the very beginning. Bullying is unexcusable for anyone to engage in.

          Great resource on stopping bullying. Your poll doesn't seem to be working, so I'll answer it here... I was bullied, and it was hurtful at the time, but the way I dealt with it was to take it as a joke, and brush it off. It didn't stop it completely - but it reduced it. I'm sure this is not the answer to all bullying though. Each personality is different, and the solutions will generally depend on the individuals involved. I think the most important thing is that parents make absolutely certain that they not only listen (really listen) to their child, but that the child feels listened to - and that the parent will handle it in the most sensitive and supportive way, neither dismissing nor over-reacting. It can be very tricky, and it's important to have the kind of information you've shared here available. Blessed. :)

          @julieannbrady: There were bullies but it isn't to the effect that it is today. Today, it has turned into dangerous behavior. In the past, if you were the victim of bullying behavior, a quick call to the parents stopped it.

          You know, call me old-fashioned, but I don't believe we had such a problem with bullies when I was younger. What is happening with the world? Bullies at school; bullies online?
