Overview

What is it that makes some children bully and some become victims?

What can you do if despite your best efforts, a child keeps on taunting another?

What steps can you take before communicating with parents and what will you say?

The practice of bullying endures in all schools today. Despite the implementation of bullying policies, parents and staff can be equally perplexed: not really understanding what they have or haven’t done to allow it to happen.

Christine Macintyre explores this highly emotive topic, asking why as many as one in 12 school children are bullying victims, and will show in a highly practical way, what can be done to support the children and help staff improve their own practice.

This book will provide help and guidance on:

  • enhancing the self-esteem of the affected children, showing how new-found confidence will enable children to offset the effects of being bullied or indeed being a bully.
  • how to tell parents their child is bullying or being bullied, and how to build up a meaningful and mutually supportive relationship with them.
  • creating a learning environment that prevents the desire for children to bully.

Based on case studies giving first hand accounts of real-life situations, and evaluations of strategies that have been tried and tested, this book suggests fresh and inspiring ways of tackling a problem faced by many practitioners today.
