This book is extremely useful for those dealing with kids who are victimized and those who create the problem. The author knows his stuff and writes in a clear fashion. Also, the recommended scripts for helping adults talk to kids who are bullies or victims are extremely useful in helping get conversations started.Was this review helpful?
