These real-life examples of bullying review the actions of parents, school administrators, children, and others involved in the bullying incidents. Readers will benefit from the "lessons learned" from the experiences of others in handling or even recognizing a bullying problem.

These are not scientific case studies, but rather detailed illustrations of actual events. Some have a good outcome, others were not resolved successfully. By examining these stories and reviewing the actions of parents, school administrators, and youths involved in the bullying cases, readers will gain practical, user-friendly advice from the lessons learned by others in handling or even recognizing a bullying problem. Chapters include:

  • An overview of bullying facts and myths, including definitions and how to identify targets and aggressors
  • A parental "toolbox" of of step-by-step suggestions for action to prevent and intervene in bullying
  • More than 40 case studies categorized by age group and type of bullying
