Overview



As a sequel to the New York Times bestseller Please Stop Laughing at Me — the book that inspired a movement in our nation’s schools and is swiftly becoming an American classic —Jodee Blanco gives expert opinion on how to make our schools safe.

In Please Stop Laughing at Us: One Survivor’s Extraordinary Quest to Prevent School Bullying, Blanco responds to the overwhelming demand for more information from parents, students, educators and other adult survivors such as herself who have come to trust her as the champion of their cause. She provides advice, answers and solutions based on her astonishing journey as the survivor who unexpectedly finds herself the nation’s most sought-after anti-bullying activist.

Please Stop Laughing at Us… is the story of America’s rejected and bullied students from the perspective of the one person with unprecedented access to the truth about what’s going on in our schools. Blanco exposes both the strengths and vulnerabilities of a nation too clouded by rhetoric and self-defense to understand what really needs to be done.

    I bought this book in hopes that the author would redeem herself.

    I was disappointed. Ms. Blanco is no crusader of children. She is quite the opposite. She is a self absorbed spoiled person who only uses the children and their very real issues to boost her already over blown ego. If you need proof, take a look at her acknowledgements and dedications. Nowhere mentioned in the countless name dropping is there any hint of her appreciation for those that shared their stories and to whom this book is supposed to be about. Which leads me to believe that the retelling of the children she claims to have 'helped' are clearly either over exaggerated or just plain made up. Ms. Blanco was not at all interested in anything or anyone other than continuing the story of Jodee that she started in her first book. What adult would point the finger of fault and creates enemies of parents, school administrators, and teachers? Ms. Blanco wants us to believe that she is the only one who is able and willing to help. It is all a facade for publicity. It is my greatest fear that anyone reading Ms. Blanco's book for real guidance will be further damaged by it.

    Truth Often Hurts!!

    I have known Jodee since her high school days and can vouch for the honsety of very word of here books. Jodee is a caring, sensitive and loving women who care deeply for the youth of today. She gave up a lucratine career to persue this passion. Her books a easy to read as she just tells it like it is and was. Jodee presented her seminar 'It's Not Just Joking Around' at our high school in Michigan and greatly accepted. She should get a resounding standing ovation for her work (she did at our school). Jodee spent one on one time with my granddaughter (made a special trip to Michigan). Yes, Jodee shares her guts both in the books and in person and this takes a special kind of person. It is a fact that we learn more from someone sharing themselves with us than preaching to us.

    Amazing book

    This book is so eye opening! Both of these books are great reads for children and adults. It hasn't changed since Jodee was in school and bullies remain even through adulthood. Her story is inspiring to all

    You do not have peace within GL Hater

    Hey GL Hater: You must have been a bully. No wonder you have such scathing reviews for those who try to help the ones who need it. If you have better answers for a legitimate problem, state them with articulateness and back those statements. Until then, keep your own misery to yourself.

    Hits the mark again

    Jodee Blanco hit it right out of the park her first time at bat, and she follows it with another home run. The biggest fact of life is that no one can tell the story quite like the person who lived it, and Jodee gets her message across as well as it could be stated. You don't have to be a former bully or a former target of peer pressure or abuse to understand this book, or to see the need for it in society. Both of her books should be required reading for all high school students.
