As a Behavioral-Developmental Pediatrician with 40 years of experience, I'll show you how to recognize and manage bullying - either as the parent of a bully or the parent of a victim. You'll learn to distinguish bullying from mere teasing, how to identify potentially life endangering misbehavior and how to STOP it well before serious harm is done to your child or others.
This book provides the tools you need to flag underlying medical or mental health conditions that act as travelling companions of bullying or victimization and which block effective discipline. It guides you through the process of choosing the most appropriate professionals to diagnose and treat those conditions.
Most importantly, you learn as a parent how to develop effective strategies to redirect bullying and protect victims.
The powerful principles presented in this book are designed to empower you as a parent.
