A sequel to The New York Times bestselling memoir, Please Stop Laughing at Me¸ this groundbreaking investigation walks down the hallways of today’s schools to find realistic solutions to the serious problem of bullying. Trusted advice on how educators, parents, and caregivers can prevent school bullying is weaved throughout the author’s own survival story as well as narratives from other victims of intimidation. Exposing weaknesses and vulnerabilities in the American educational system, this vital social critique shows how to help both bullies and victims change for the better, why traditional punishment is counter-productive, how to inspire compassion in the classroom, and how to discipline a child in ways that benefit self-esteem.
