Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 “This authoritative book has the potential to change behavior and influence social media interaction involving both teens and adults . . . Words Wound belongs in every library and classroom, anywhere that a bullied or bullying teen could find it easily and quickly.”—VOYA(Highlighted Review)

 

 “Words Wound is the first book that has been specifically written for teens to help them confront cyberbullying. Whether they are being targeted, see cyberbullying happening to others, or want to promote kindness within their schools, this book provides practical and proven advice on issues teens face every single day. Parents need to buy this book, read it, and share its wisdom with their children. Working together, parents and teens can be a solution to the problem of cyberbullying, and Words Wound can help guide those conversations.”—Dr. Michele Borba, internationally recognized parenting and bullying expert and author of 22 books including Building Moral Intelligence

 “It’s easy to think cyberbullying is out of everyone’s control. This book will show teens how they can use their power and influence to stem the tide of cruelty and replace it with a culture of kindness. These authors know everything there is to know about cyberbullying, and their strategies are realistic and smart. Read this book!”—Rachel Simmons, author of the New York Times best seller Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls

“In today’s society, we need to equip our children with the knowledge and resources they need to combat the underbelly of cyberspace. Not only can this book be considered your teen's handbook to prevent cyber-cruelty, it will empower them to be cyber-mentors. Words Wound is the most important book you can purchase today!”—Sue Scheff, author of Google Bomb and Wit’s End: Advice and Resources for Saving Your Out-of-Control Teen

“This powerful resource teaches students effective social networking skills and provides educators with insights to help teens manage their online reputations and lives.”—Patrick Mott, teen social media expert

Words Wound empowers people of all ages to recognize cyberbullying and delete it from social behavior. Words Wound not only addresses the origins of bullying, but also provides effective strategies to combat it, proven through research and personal testimonies from targets of bullying. There couldn’t be a more effective book when it comes to understanding, identifying, and combatting bullying in any form.”—Kevin Curwick, creator of @OsseoNiceThings and founder of the “Nice It Forward” movement

Words Wound is written with young adults in mind, but has a tremendous amount of value for anyone who deals with teenagers . . . A great book to go through as a family.”—Volume One

VOYA, June 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 2) - Judith A. Hayn
This authoritative book has the potential to change behavior and influence social media interaction involving both teens and adults. The authors use actual interviews and case studies with victims of cyberbullying to craft suggestions for counteracting, preventing, and battling cyberbullying. The book can be read straight through, or the reader can select the most relevant segments. The three parts include cyberbullying facts, a guide for creating a culture of kindness and respect, and ideas for action in schools and communities. If the reader is being cyberbullied, chapter 2 examines what you can do if you are a victim and are being harassed, including legal ramifications, while chapter 5 describes ways to behave online to reduce risk and safeguard your reputation. The last two chapters offer a myriad of ideas for taking action at the local level, with success stories from high schools all over the country. The text is peppered with heartbreaking stories from teens, along with quotes from famous people including Dr. Seuss, President Obama, Ellen DeGeneres, and Stephen Colbert. Each chapter ends with a “Status Update,” a self-evaluation of the reader’s attitudes and experiences, which could lead to provocative discussions with a group of adolescents. The authors include an invitation to help them in their work at the Cyberbullying Research Center through their website, help@wordswound.org. Words Wound belongs in every library and classroom, anywhere that a bullied or bullying teen could find it easily and quickly. Reviewer: Judith A. Hayn; Ages 11 to 18.
