What can you say to a son who comes home day after day complaining of being threatened or hit or worse? What if your daughter is clearly the victim of vicious teasing but doesn't even want to talk about it? What should you do when you suspect your child may, in fact, be the bully? Your Child: Bully or Victim? offers hands-on help for parents to stop bullying before it becomes serious, including how to:
- Recognize the many forms abuse can take -- from playground name-calling to chat room cyber-slamming
- Detect whether your child is a victim of bullying and empower him to protect himself
- Combat such common (and dangerous) myths as "Boys will be boys..." and "Just ignore them and they'll go away"
- Help your child know what to do when he witnesses an incident
- Know when it's time to step in and talk to other parents or teachers in order to protect your child -- what to say and how to say it
