Bullying Epidemic: Not Just Child’s Play
Bullying Epidemic: Not Just Child’s Play is a powerful book on children’s bullying and the corrosive, enabling role adults inadvertently play. Why is bullying still a growing crisis, after a decade of bullying prevention programs? Bullying Epidemic looks clearly at the self-serving excuses adults make for failing to step in and stop bullying, and the tremendous human cost of looking away while our kids are suffering. All of us are damaged by the roles we play – bully, target, and, most frequently, bystander.
Adults must reclaim our roles as leaders to children, clean up the bullying in adult workplaces, in our personal lives, and on TV, and unwaveringly insist that kids do the same. Kids should know that every day is bullying prevention day – not just when cameras are rolling or the bullying prevention expert is in the school. Bullying Epidemic offers a commonsense action plan for all adults determined to turn the tide of children’s bullying.
Bullying Epidemic was a finalist in the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards in the Education category.
