The Bullying Antidote
This big-picture look at bullying by community psychologist Dr. Louise Hart and her co-author, Kristen Caven (other books include The Winning Family and On the Wings of Self-Esteem), takes on the challenge of correcting the common and widespread parenting practices that contribute to today's bullying epidemic.Drawing from psychological, medical, sociological, educational, and neurological research, they build a theory of bullying that spans across communities and generations, one that will ring a bell for most parents. The book teaches hundreds of specific, positive practices to turn the next generation of children into richly developed, healthy adolescents and adults who possess what the authors lightly label "ZORGOS," the superpower that defeats bullying. The overall intent is not just to stop a single bullying incident, but to develop immunity in today's children to future bullying events. The Bullying Antidote shows how parents and community leaders, by becoming educated about the mechanics of power dynamics and prevention, can build bully-free, emotionally safe families, neighborhoods, and communities.Some of the things parents will learn in this book:1. Parenting styles that can either nurture or interrupt bullying behaviors2. Three ways parents with good intentions unknowingly raise bullies3. What bullying is and what it is not4.
