Sobre o livro
Bullying is wrong, it is unacceptable and just like we do not tolerate rape, murder, drinking and driving we should not tolerate any form of bullying in our societies. So many lives are being affected in a negative way and to this day we still don’t seem to figure out what to do to prevent bullying from happening. Our kids have the right to and deserve to grow up in a safe environment where they can live their youth fully and happily without fear.
Not knowing is not an option anymore. The purpose of this book is to provide to parents and children with a guide, techniques and various tools that will allow them to take the appropriate actions when facing bullying. It also helps start the conversation between parents and children using case scenarios and family discussion topics.
The “Bully Proof” book is divided into four main categories: the Players (bullies, victims and bystanders), the Behaviors (Physical, verbal, social, cyber and self-bullying), the Environment (at home, at school, online and within the community) and the Solutions (the parents, the youth, the schools and the community).
In order to effectively prevent bullying from happening, we need to first understand what is and what is not bullying so we can make sure that each support group (parents, children, the communities and school) is equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to help prevent bullying from happening.
The “Bully Proof” book covers all types of bullying ranging from self-bullying, verbal bullying, physical bullying, social bullying and cyberbullying. It details what they are, the reasons why they happen, the consequences and the solutions.
It also highlights the importance of living an active life which is directly connected to self-esteem. In addition, it also provides various case scenarios as well as basic self-defense techniques to safely get away from the different forms of physical bullying. As an extra, there are tips and tricks to help with eye contact, body language and knowing the difference between certain behaviors (e.g. telling vs tattle telling).
There is also real-life stories about bullying that ended up with the victims taking their own lives. In addition, you will also find some sample documents (e.g. letter to the school, action vs responses and more you can use.
