Bullying is a social relationship problem.
Bullying is a relationship that is characterized by disrespect and is a warm-up for long-term relationship problems.
With cell phones and Internet, children and teens are now being cyber bullied around the clock, in the safety of their own homes.
To promote positive relationships, all children and teens involved in bullying incidents – those who bully, those who are victimized, as well as bystanders – must be included in the efforts to stop bullying.
“A gift for anyone wanting an authoritative, comprehensive, and easily accessible guide to dealing with bullying.“
- from the foreword by Susan M. Swearer Ph.D., Co-Director, Bullying Research Network, University of Nebraska – Lincoln
