Kids just being kids? Or boys and girls acquiring the habits, attitudes, and scars they'll carry into adulthood?
Name-calling, exclusion, and downright assault are all forms of the peer abuse we call bullying--and studies (as well as experience) show us how damaging bullying can be to target, instigator, and bystander alike. Clear and concise, this pamphlet gives parents immediate insight into the origins of this troubling behavior, as well as information to help recognize and remedy it. The author's sensible, how-to approach outlines the positive steps adults can take to raise more confident, better-behaved children who'll have a happier future, beginning right now.
