    an amazing thorough practical book

    This book covers it all. It has the bully pegged and what works to stop the bully. It addresses the bystanders and their role and responsibilities. Most importantly it reminds everyone that it is not the targets fault.
    The program the author set up in his school is a no tolerance policy . It teaches the bully to take responsibility for their actions and that if they make wrong choices there will be consequences. Those consequences will be the same for all as the school posts a rubric so all will know what the consequences for their actions are. If its a repeat offense they earn a more severe consequence. The bully also has to call home in the presence of a faculty member and let his parent know what he did and what his punishment is. A letter also goes home with the same info and what will happen if he does it again. The bully also has to fill out a think about it form.Most importantly the children learn that we don't tolerate bullying in their school.
    Through out the book Stan Davis compares bullying to adult crimes and reminds us that adults would not tolerate harrassment in their work environment or neighborhoods. Through his program he teaches us even the bystander has a responsibility to speak up just as an adult would if they see a crime happening. He is teaching us to be good citizens and that bullying does not have to be part of childhood
