The Bully The Bullied And The Bystander
Author: Barbara Coloroso
The #1 National Bestseller from Barbara Coloroso, one of the world’s most trusted parenting educators and author of Kids Are Worth It!
It’s a Recipe for tragedy: bullies who get what they want from their targets, bullied kids who are afraid to tell, bystanders who either watch, participate, or look away, and adults who see the incidents as a normal part of childhood. Some bullying victims have fought back with violence that has shattered entire communities; others have committed suicide; many more suffer in silence, their lives a constant round of emotional and physical pain. In The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander, Barbara Coloroso gives parents, caregivers, educators—and, most of all, kids—the tools they need to break this devastating cycle of violence.
Drawing on her decades of work and troubled youth, and her wide experience in the areas of conflict resolution and reconciliatory justice, Barbara Coloroso looks at:
- THE BULLY—what bullying is and isn’t; the difference and similarities between boy and girl bullies; the short-and longe-term impact on the bully
- THE BULLIED—who he/she is; when the bullied becomes the bully
- THE BYSTANDER—peer, sibling or adult; how bystanders can be peacemakers
This compassionate and practical guide has become a ground-breaking reference on the subject of bullying.
