Item Details

Carrie Goldman became an unexpected voice for the antibullying movement after her blog post about her daughter Katie's bullying experience went viral and an online community of support generated international attention.

As a mother, she calls on us all--families, schools, communities, retailers, celebrities, and media--to fiercely examine our own stereotypes and embrace our joint responsibility for creating a culture of acceptance and respect--From publisher description.

This book is incredible. Even if you are not a parent, don't have bullied children, or even if you are not an adult, this book is a great tool for everyone to use to become more socially accepting of our world and the people in it. I absolutely loved this, it teaches things from both side of the equation. Techniques, real-life bullying stories, it's all here. 5 stars all the way.

Goldman is an excellent speaker as well as writer, and I would highly recommend her as a presenter to school or community groups. She give specifics on how to distinguish bullying from normal social conflict, how to respond to bullies, (or defensive parents and school officials) who deny the harm done, and how kids can flip the hurtful statements around to deprive them of their power. She tells kids how to minimize the impact of cyberbullying: don't keep the phone on in your room at night, don't share passwords, don't keep re-reading the bad stuff. Best of all, she offers wonderful, practical suggestions on how bystanders can support victims, from the riskiest option of directly confronting the bully, to safer, but also effective methods: distracting the bully, building alliances with other bystanders, or even simply sending the victim a supportive note or text later on. A great discussion starter for kids, parents, and anyone who works with youth.

It was amazing to see Carrie Goldman at the civic center! She worked real hard to put together a book that can help schools, parents, teachers, and students alike to combat bullying.

"None of us is without blame. None o us is without strengths. If we keep these two truths in mind, we are well positioned to take on the problem of bullying with grace and maturity. Every person has a voice that deserves to be heard, even the marginalized and the mute. We just need to listen, and change will occur.
