Bullying, both physical and verbal, is a growing problem in schools, affecting children of all ages, from all backgrounds. The effects of bullying can be far-reaching, resulting in health problems and even destructive behaviour, which can isolate bullied children from their parents and peers as they struggle to find ways of coping. Children who are being bullied may feel ashamed, and try to disguise their feelings. Parents will know something is wrong, but may feel unsure of knowing the best steps to take - to protect their child and to encourage their self-esteem to recover and grow. Jenny Alexander is one of the UK's leading experts in this field. Her practical and empowering book provides a wealth of tools and techniques for parents, showing how you can work with your child to overcome the problem of bullying.
