It's the deadliest combination going: bullies who terrorize, bullied kids who are afraid to tell, bystanders who watch, and adults who see the incidents as a normal part of childhood. All it takes to understand that this is a recipe for tragedy is a glance at headlines across the country. In this updated edition of The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander, which includes a new section on cyberbullying, one of the world's most trusted parenting educators gives parents, caregivers, educators--and most of all, kids--the tools to break the cycle of violence.

Drawing on her decades of work with troubled youth, and her wide experience in the areas of conflict resolution and reconciliatory justice, Barbara Coloroso explains:

The three kinds of bullying, and the differences between boy and girl bullies Four abilities that protect your child from succumbing to bullying Seven steps to take if your child is a bully How to help the bullied child heal and how to effectively discipline the bully How to evaluate a school's antibullying policy And much more

This compassionate and practical guide has become the groundbreaking reference on the subject of bullying.

Please Note: This is NOT the book that is pictured. It is the 2003 edition. The pictured version is the REVISED 2009 edition which addresses cyberbullying and more than 100 ways to protect your child.

This is a valuable book that any parent with a child in school should read. Written by a Canadian, it provides case studies from Canada, North America and many countries of the world. I found the last chapter, with its critique of zero tolerance policies in schools, particularly stimulating. Unfortunately, for obvious reasons there will never be controlled experiments regarding bullying and its treatment, so the book tends to be anecdotal. Do aboriginal healing circles really offer a superior way of dealing with bullying (see p.197-8) or is this just the flavour of the month? Ms. Coloroso's style is workmanlike and un pretentious but also somewhat humorless It would be interesting to see what a superior stylist like Kevin Williamson would do with the same material. The whole book is decidedly post-Christian. Although there are frequent references to Martin Luther King and Desmond Tutu, according to Ms. Coloroso churches and their clerics don't seem to have any role in dealing with bullies, the bullied and complicit bystanders.
