If your children haven’t already been affected by bullying, it is very likely on the way. Published by the National Center for the Prevention of Community Violence, led by career police officer Bobby Kipper, this concise guide is designed to answer the plea heard all over America, “What should I do?” What should I do when my child’s reputation is being destroyed online? What do I do if my child becomes the bully? What do I do when physical confrontation is inevitable? Should I confront the parents of a bully? Parents and Guardians, Teachers and Coaches, Youth Leaders and Child Advocates, our children are in danger. Prepare for the eventual encounter with the 21st Century New American Bully. Make informed and thoughtful decisions on how to handle these encounters. Ultimately, No BULLIES and its predecessor No COLORS — 100 Ways to Stop Gangs from Taking Over Our Communities, together address “best practices” for making a difference in the civility crisis in our nation that is impacting an entire generation.
Since 1992, there have been 250 violent deaths in schools, and in virtually every one, bullying has been a contributing factor to the violence. As in the Columbine High School shooting in Littleton, Colorado, most of the students who committed these violent crimes were victims of bullying who decided to get revenge. Such violence has become one of the most serious problems in America today, and both bullies and their victims need help. Chapter One defines bullying as a form of violence among children and discusses characteristics of bullies. Chapter Two identifies myths about bullies and presents research that dispels those myths. Chapter Three considers how serious violence begins with seemingly innocent put-downs and teasing. Chapter Four explores how bullying may indicate the beginning of a generally antisocial and rule-breaking behavior pattern that can extend into adulthood, and presents successful programs and interventions. Chapter Five presents useful solutions and strategies to stop bullying.
