Read an Excerpt

Children are bullying each other in frighteningly effective 21st century ways. These are not your father’s bullies. Armed with social media and supported by a culture that seems to glorify bullying throughout a wide spectrum of activities, today’s kids experience bullying behavior in every direction they turn.

“Many parents are numb to bullying because they experience it every day at work”

Many parents are either numb to bullying or far less sensitive than they should be because they may experience it every day at work. The bullies of their own childhood have grown up and become their co-workers and supervisors.

Too often it seems that the least compassionate and most domineering get ahead.

Some would say it’s always been that way, that the media has simply expanded and amplified the nastiness.

Our history lends some truth to that assertion through political campaigns that introduced us to contentious behavior and outright ugly moments shortly after America declared its independence.  The earliest days of the republic also saw intimidation and domineering behavior incorporated into military training and discipline.

    We ordered this book to learn more about the 21st century bully,

    We ordered this book to learn more about the 21st century bully, especially the cyberbullying that plagues our young people. It is an excellent summary about bullying and what societies across the globe are doing about it. The tips for parents and kids alike are insightful and on the mark. Having shared this book with my kids, it opened up new conversations about what to do when they encounter or witness bullying. Every parent should read this book. every teacher should have it handy for the next distressed parent who comes in for advice on what to do about the bullying their child is enduring.
