Giveaway - Bullying Resources

Bullying Resource Giveaway

"Be kind whenever possible.  It is always possible." - Dalai Lama

No one likes a bully.  They wreak emotional and physical havoc on our kids, in our schools, at work, and in our families.  The impact bullies have on their victims can range from minor annoyance to suicidal depression.  Let's arm ourselves with knowledge and stop the cycle of violence.

In that spirit, I am giving away three excellent books on bullying.  You can enter multiple times (see the rafflecopter box below) to improve you chances of winning one, two, or all three of the books.  I will cover all shipping expenses and there will be no cost to the winners.  The winners will be chosen on March 31, 2014.  Good luck!  

Book One: "Please Stop Laughing at Me" by Jodee Blanco

"In her poignant work, Jodee Blanco tells how school became a frightening and painful place, where threats, humiliation, and assault were as much a part of her daily experience as bubblegum and lip-gloss were for others. It is an unflinching look at what it means to be an outcast, how even the most loving parents can get it wrong, why schools fail, and how bullying is both misunderstood and mishandled" - Amazon

Book Two: "The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander"by Barbara Coloroso

"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." - Amazon

Third Book: "Odd Girl Speaks Out" by Rachel Simmons

"The national bestseller Odd Girl Out exposed a hidden culture of cruelty that had always been quietly endured by American girls. As Rachel Simmons toured the country, these girls found their voices and spoke to her about their pain. They wanted to talk-and they weren't the only ones. Mothers, teachers, counselors, young professional women, even fathers, came to Rachel with heart-wrenching personal stories that could no longer be kept secret." - Amazon

  1. I thought I had commented before? To help with bullying, I will do what I am doing now- stand up for the bullied, and stand UP TO the bullies. I also write to share support with parents of bullied kids. It's an isolating time.
