Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly:

This is an extremely helpful book that both parents and teachers can use to deal with bullying, an aspect of school that the author feels “is a life-and-death issue that we ignore at our children’s peril.” Staring with a bottom-line assumption that “bullying is a learned behavior,” Coloroso (Parenting Through Crisis) wonderfully explains not only the ways that the bully, the bullied and the bystander are “three characters in a tragic play” but also how “the scripts can be rewritten, new roles created, the plot changed.” For each of the three “characters,” she breaks down the behavior that defines each role, analyzes the specific ways that each character can have their behaviors changed for the better, and suggests a range of methods that parents and educators can use to identify bullying behavior and deal with it effectively. The book also provides excellent insights into behaviors related to but not always recognized as bullying, such as cliques, hazing, taunting and sexual bullying. And while there have been numerous books about bullies, this volume is perhaps best for its sections on the “bystander,” the person whose behavior is too often overlooked or excused. Coloroso’s emphasis on aikido-related defensive skills do not sufficiently address the issue of what a child is to do when physical force is necessary to stop a bully, but overall this is an important look at the ways that bullied children can affirm their dignity and self-worth.
