Children and Bullying: How Parents and Educators Can Reduce Bullying at School by Ken Rigby

Scarcely a day goes by without reports of school bullying or recommendations for quick fixes to the problem. Parents and educators are often left trying to solve a difficult problem without sufficient evidence to support suggested remedies. Drawing on a wealth of research, Ken Rigby provides clear explanations and effective strategies for combating bullying among children as well as preventing children from becoming involved in bullying situations.

Exploring key issues such as ways to empower children to deal with bullies, the crucial role positive peer influences can play, and how schools can develop effective anti-bullying programs, Children and Bullying is a vital resource for educators and parents alike as they work to create safe learning environments.
