Talking about bullying ISBN: 9780749653927
Sanders, Bruce
Published by Franklin Watts (Talking About series), 2003
Using a question and answer approach, this book emphasises feelings - those of the bullied and the bullies. We are told that it is never the fault of the person being bullied, and this is repeated in several contexts. Problems with gangs are covered, and there are 'Think About It' and 'Did You Know' boxes as well as short personal stories. The photos show us clean, well-brought-up children in middle class neighbourhoods - no graffiti or inner-city roughness here. Some good coping strategies, courtesy of Kidscape, are given, and there is much emphasis on talking to a trusted adult. Useful addresses, phone numbers and web sites complete the information.
