Julia describes in candid detail how she made it through it alland abusive soccer coach sabotaging his team, a school administration unwilling to support new ideas, a bevy of envious students bent on taking me down a notch, a sexual encounter of dubious consent, a faculty actively involved in teenage melodramas, a fathers ugly small town election loss, and the ever-competitive arms race of college admissions. Far from being a blanket condemnation of a town, Bullied explores the different types of bullies, the environment that allowed it all to happen, and the way Julia got through it. It introduces and lauds the unlikely friends and the caring adults who sought to protect her. Stories from the future are weaved in to show how different events affected hersuch as how a horrible night complicated future relationshipsand to give hopelike when Julia was asked to speak at her college graduation after being denied the honor in high school as the valedictorian. Julia was bullied mercilessly in high school, in almost every way one could imagine, not because she was shy, or awkward, or homosexual but because she was pretty, ambitious, and wanted morewhich only attracted jealousy. Unlike the more tragic stories, Julia triumphed. She eventually went on to win a full ride in scholarships to Georgetown University. She got a Masters on a major fellowship and went on to law school. In short, Julia put high school behind her and blossomed. Find Bullied: True Tales from an American High School on Amazon Kindle at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0051GTXL0

  young adult author - Submitted by susan on July 29, 2011  
  The young adult novel, Eaglebait, is back in print. Originally published in hardcover by Harcourt, Eaglebait won two major awards: The NY Public Librarys Books for the Teenage, and the International Reading Associations Young Adult Choice. Eaglebait is cited on numerous anti-bullying websites, including Social Issues Booklist and A Resource Guide to Bullying. A career educator myself, I find that when English classes read and study Eaglebait, both students and teachers benefit. The same goes for counseling and parent advisory groups dealing with bullying issues. Both boys and girls identify with the 14-year-old male protagonist. The theme, bullies in the schools, is relevant and important and of utmost interest to young adult readers, especially in middle to early high school. Eaglebait is recommended by national reviewers such as Horn Book Guide, Booklist and School Library Journal. The novel will be popular in all school libraries. Visit the website: www.susancoryellauthor.com to learn more about Eaglebait. You will note a study guide which may be downloaded for educational purposes. Please consider recommending Eaglebait for Bullying.org's library or curriculum resource list. The Authors Guild BACKinprint Edition is available at all on-line bookstores for $12.95.

  Grandma why didn't God make me a bird - Submitted by Amanda Conley Hines on May 27, 2010  
  My name is Amanda Conley Hines and I would like to share a story with you. One afternoon I was watching the Oprah Winfrey show and a woman was sitting there heartbroken because her pre-teen son had committed suicide. Her child had been bullied and as a result his life was shattered. That woman's pain was too hard for me to imagine. Since I am a parent, fear began to enter my mind. Could something like this happen to my children? I began to think about my own experiences with bullies and self-esteem issues. I could see how things could spiral out of control. As I became older my experiences turned into valuable knowledge. I learned that most of the time bullies themselves have low self-esteem. They try to hide behind the pain they inflict on others. I wanted my children to have this knowledge early. That's when I began to pray and God turned my fear into determination and thus this book was born. "Grandma, Why didn"t God Make Me a Bird?" was written from my heart. The grandma character was influenced by my own great grandmother; who was an amazing woman. She loved God with her whole heart. The little girl, Kayla, was influenced by me and many others. Kaylas character deals with bullying and self-esteem issues. The story comes alive when Kayla notices a blue bird and wonders what life would be like as a bird. Kayla doesn't have many friends, but there are two things that Kayla finds joy in, God, and her talks with her grandma Annie. Kayla decides to talk to her grandma about her wish to be a bird. Grandma Annie listens and lovingly explains to Kayla that she is already special. Kayla does not immediately understand, but her grandmother is kind and understanding. She explains to Kayla that being created in the image of God; makes you pretty special. Grandma Annie also explains to Kayla that her actions and reactions define her...she is not defined by other people. With this knowledge and a few other kind and loving words; she understands her own self-worth. And now dealing with difficult people and situations does not feel insurmountable. I am not under the assumption that this book will save the world. My prayer is that this book will open a dialogue between parents and their children. Now that you have had a glimpse into my heart; I hope that you will help me spread the word about this book. And if there is truly a closing thought it is this if God created you, then no one can take your uniqueness away.

After experiencing various levels of humiliation, the individual have to pick up the damaged pieces and rebuild their self-esteem. This is the time in which your true friends are tested. This book shows the Bully that sometimes payback can occur much later in their life. The moral of this story is to the extreme. However, the message is still the same  Dont Bully. Please advise if this book could assist in your efforts to stop bullying in the workplace. The book also cover bullying in the workplace as well. Thanks. Sandy www.twinjusticesurvived.com

  All the Bad Things - Submitted by Jason on April 11, 2012  
  To Whom It May Concern: I am happy that bullying is getting the attention it deserves whether it be through the release of a documentary about bullying or through organizations such as yours. I am writing because I, too, have been an advocate to stop bullying. Last year, my debut novel, ALL THE BAD THINGS, was published by Lucky Press, LLC. It is the story of Robbie Toe, a social outcast who falls prey to the relentless scorn of those in a small Pennsylvanian town. The type of bullying he receives is as nefarious as it is creative. I would like to offer my book to your organization as a way to help spread the word about how vicious bullying truly is. More can be learned at http://www.jmichaeldew.com Thank you, Jason Dew

  Love the Wounded - Submitted by Lynn Dove on June 18, 2012  
  "Love the Wounded" by Lynn Dove is the final and dramatic conclusion to her brilliant Wounded Trilogy series that has followed the lives of teenagers Jake, Leigh, Mike, Dylan and Tim as they come to terms with a series of tragedies and events that have made each of them question why God allows "bad things to happen to good people". Leigh does not know who to choose...her heart tells her she will always love Jake, but he has changed so much since the death of their friend, Ronnie, and with his mother going through breast cancer, he has totally closed himself off from her emotionally. Now she is dating Dylan and try as she might to accept him for who he is, she can't stop thinking about Jake! Dylan has never gotten over the loss of his father and little sister, killed by a drunk driver when he was just a young boy. After a horrific accident that has put both Tim and his little brother, Evan in the hospital, everyone knows that not only is he being bullied at school; he cuts himself to cope with it all. But meeting Cassidy has given him the courage to stand up to the bullies and at the same time give her what she so desperately needs...a life-giving bone marrow transplant. Jake's mother keeps telling him that "God works all things out for good" but with all the things going on in his life and with his friends, he's just not sure anymore. It is only after Mike is paralyzed in a car accident that Jake was partially responsible for that all the families and friends will be brought back together, not by coincidence, but by God's design and then Jake will finally believe that God truly does "Love the Wounded". "A life of working with youth has inspired Lynn Dove, a Cochrane mother to turn her experiences into a book trilogy...(the Wounded Trilogy) series that parallels the struggles of students...(and) covers the angst of some of the real serious issues that teenagers face today, particularly with bullying and gossip.

  "Taking the Bully by the Horns" is different from other books on bullying because most bullying books that are out are either children’s fiction, or simply a long list of statistics only adults would be interested in that you can easily find on the Internet. This book is Self-help. Intended for children to read themselves since it is written in first person and speaks directly to the child/young teen. It could also be read to a class by a teacher or shared with a younger child by a parent. It also fits in the Psychology category (and Self-esteem) thanks to Dr. Jay Carter’s input, advice, and editing. This is very important because both victims and bullies need help with their self-esteem. Obviously the victim’s self-esteem is shattered by the bully and needs rebuilding, but what a lot of people don't know is that bullies also have a low self-esteem. Don’t mistake arrogance for a healthy or high self-esteem. If they felt good about themselves then why the need to “control” other people all the time? This book is not only designed to help the victim, but is also the only book that has a chapter speaking directly to the BULLIES. The book works on reforming the bullies as well so what is referred to in the book as, "The Bully Cycle," is stopped. Bullying creating more bullies. Many bullies started out as victims who were victimized to the point where they couldn't take it anymore, stopped caring, lost all hope, and became "the bully" themselves.  
  You and Me Bully Free - Submitted by Frank on January 09, 2004  
  This new book is an innovative approach because it aims at dealing with bullying before it actually occurs. It is for children of all ages. If children can learn about the different types of bullying and the best ways to get it stopped they are much better prepared for what happens. It also aims to show bullies what other people really think of them. The book is for use as a school resource or at home with parents and children reading and discussing it together. My kids love it and I originally wrote the stories just for them. I decided to turn it into a book after I saw how effective it was. It is available by sending a check or money order to: Frank Davis P.O. Box 300 Merewether,2291 N.S.W. Australia. The price is Canadian $11.80 or US$9.20 This includes postage. If you would like any further details you can e-mail me at youandmebullyfree@hotmail.com. I would like to hear from you anyway even if it is nothing to do with the book. Isn't www.bullying.org the best Website around? I tell everyone that it is the biggest and best in the world and it is streets ahead of second.

Producing an effective antibullying policy in schools

by Barbara Maines and George Robinson

Schools have a duty of care to the pupils and that duty includes the responsibility to reduce the frequency of bullying and to respond appropriately with a safe intervention when it has happened.

Occasionally a pupil or ex-pupil might, looking back on a time of unhappiness and school failure, choose to prosecute the school or the LEA for failing to deal effectively with the bullying.

Recognising this responsibility Bristol City Council has commissioned a programme to support schools in drawing up and implementing a safe policy. The video training pack comprehensively illustrates the necessary elements of the policy and includes views on racist and homophobic bullying, record keeping and an expert opinion on litigation.

  No Easy Answers: The Truth Behind Death at Columbine - Submitted by Anne on February 14, 2003  
  This compelling true story answers many questions about the two boys who horrified their community and the world by shooting to death twelve students and one teacher at their high school in Littleton, Colorado in April 1999. In the hope that his story will help prevent future acts of school violence, Brooks Brown pours his heart and soul into the retelling of this tragic event that affected so many. In No Easy Answers, Brooks Brown, with co-author Rob Merritt, relates his personal experience of growing up with Dylan Klebold, one of the two Columbine shooters, and attending Columbine High School with Dylan and Eric Harris, the second shooter. He argues that the antagonistic environment at the high school led to the vilification of a group of “outsiders,” which included himself, Dylan, Eric, and others. Brooks describes the hostility that Dylan and Eric developed in response to the bullying they experienced and the ways in which that hostility found expression. Shocking as well as inspirational and insightful, No Easy Answers is an authentic wake-up call for all the psychologists, authorities, parents, and law enforcement personnel who have attempted to understand the murders at Columbine High School. As the title suggests, the book offers no easy answers, but instead presents the unvarnished facts about growing up as an alienated teenager in America today.

  Dangerous Schools: What We Can Do About the Physical and Emotional Abuse of Our Children - Submitted by Bill on September 17, 2003

ISBN: 0-7879-4363-0

July 1999, Jossey-Bass
US $25.00

From the inner-city to the suburbs, thousands of school children are being systematically subjected to mandatory classroom policies which inflict both physical and emotional harm. Hundreds of school officials from across the country have been found guilty of sexual harassment, the illegal use of undercover agents, strip searches, corporal punishment, verbal abuse, punitive isolation, and other forms of institutional abuse. In Dangerous Schools, Professor Irwin Hyman and Pamela Snook, passionate advocates against the institutional maltreatment of children, reveal exactly what is going on in our nation's schools and what we must do about it.

"This book makes a strong argument against school abuses and offers clear and proven strategies for change. It will appeal to parents who suspect that their children have been maltreated by educators and for advocates who desire a blueprint for social change."---James Garbarino, codirector, Family Life Development Center, Cornell University; author, What Children Can Tell Us

  Bullying Trends and Interventions - Submitted by Lindsay on May 02, 2003  

Wednesday, April 23, 2003

Toronto: ?Bullying Trends and Interventions?, a pilot study among callers to Kids Help Phone, indicates that the plight of bullied children and youth is not improving, despite increased attention the issue has garnered in recent years.

?Schools, social service agencies and other organizations concerned with the welfare of Canada?s children and youth have all worked hard to implement bullying policies and programs over the past ten years,? says Christine Simmons-Physick, Kids Help Phone?s vice president, child and family services. ?In that time, we?ve also seen an increase in media attention to the issue through the coverage of several high-profile cases. All of these efforts should be applauded.

?We decided to do this study because we became concerned that the programs and interventions we?ve put in place aren?t doing enough to eradicate bullying completely.?

Early analysis of the results indicates that in very few cases the bullying stopped completely after victims sought help. Most participants indicated the bullying continued after seeking help and for some, the bullying got worse.

The pilot study sample was derived from 7,393 calls to Kids Help Phone about bullying received between 1996 and 2002 in addition to random in-depth interviews of 27 callers between February 11 and March 10, 2003.

The study also found:

? Most of the interviewed participants are aware of the resources, supports, programs and policies in place in their community;

? All of the interviewed participants had sought help from one or more of the following sources: a) a teacher/school staff; b) a friend; c) a parent; d) Kids Help Phone; e) the police; f) a coach; g) a doctor.

? Responses they received from adults were sometimes inconsistent and unpredictable ? some felt they were still not being taken seriously.

?Our early analysis of the results of this study makes me wonder if we?re paying enough attention to the effectiveness of these interventions and programs. Are we effectively following up to ensure they?re working?? asks Simmons-Physick.

?We?ve all done a great job on the first step, and now it?s time to collectively re-focus our efforts on the next step ? making sure these programs and policies are actually putting an end to bullying among young people.?

Since 1989, Kids Help Phone?s professional counsellors have been talking directly to Canadian children and youth on the phone and, more recently, on the Internet. Since 1996, it?s been consistently tracking those calls and holds one of the country?s richest databases of issues faced by Canadian kids. Every year, Kids Help Phone collects more than 120,000 records drawn from over 3,000 Canadian communities.

?Bullying Trends and Interventions? is a pilot study of initial data. It is the first installment in a series of annual studies and reports that Kids Help Phone will issue as part of a long-term look at the issues faced by Canadian children & youth. Kids Help Phone hopes the studies will help identify emerging issues affecting young people, resulting in public policy changes and front-line programs that will directly and positively impact Canadian children and families.

Today, Kids Help Phone?s counsellors answer approximately 1,000 calls and online questions every day from young people about a range of concerns, including sexual, physical and emotional abuse, drugs and suicide.

  Let's Get Real - Submitted by Debra Chasnoff on April 08, 2004  
Let's Get Real:
A powerful new documentary where kids speak up about bullying
Name-calling and bullying are at epidemic proportions in schools across the country, particularly in middle schools where children are first learning to navigate through strict social hierarchies. Unlike the vast majority of videos made for schools about the issue, Let's Get Real doesn’t sugarcoat the truth or feature adults lecturing kids about what to do when “bad” kids pick on them. Let's Get Real gives young people the chance to tell their stories in their own words—and the results are heartbreaking, shocking, inspiring and poignant.

Let's Get Real examines a variety of issues that lead to taunting and bullying, including racial differences, perceived sexual orientation, learning disabilities, religious differences, sexual harassment and others. The film not only gives a voice to targeted kids, but also to kids who do the bullying to find out why they lash out at their peers and how it makes them feel. The most heartening part of Let's Get Real includes stories of kids who have mustered the courage to stand up for themselves or a classmate.

Of all the films in The Respect for All Project about young people and prejudice, Let's Get Real is turning out to be the most sobering, the most real and, perhaps, the most important.
Since 1978, Women’s Educational Media has produced and distributed films on issues ranging from environmental concerns to affordable housing to preventing prejudice. No matter the topic, we approach each project with the goal of creating lasting social change, and we have a proven track record of achieving results.

  Town of Hannah, Alberta adopts anti-bullying bylaw - Submitted by Bill on November 21, 2007  

Town of Hannah, Alberta adopts anti-bullying bylaw

Jackie Gold
Tuesday November 20, 2007

The Town of Hanna decided to take a firm stance against bullying during their Nov. 13 meeting, by voting to adopt policy 07-01, effective immediately.

Under the newly adopted policy all Town of Hanna facilities, events and programs will enforce a zero tolerance level for bullying.

At the meeting councillors were told that the intent of the policy is to "respect the safety, health and welfare of people."

The policy noted that bullying would be construed as conscious, willful, deliberate, hostile and repeated behavior by one or more people to harm others.

"It may include the harassment of others by the real or threatened infliction of physical violence and attacks," the policy noted, as well as racial, ethnic or gender based put-downs and name calling, both spoken and/or written down.
The policy noted that consequences of breaking the zero tolerance bullying policy will result in severe consequences, which will depend on both the form and extent of the actions.

Additionally the policy stated that the Hanna RCMP would be notified if acts of bullying during an event, program or in a Town facility that broke criminal code laws took place.

Hanna Town council was told that the policy was in preparation of Bullying Awareness Week, which began on Nov. 18 and runs until Nov. 24.

In their brief councillors were told that in North America bullying is the most common form of violence, with between 15 and 30 per cent of students and seven per cent of seniors facing some form of emotional or financial abuse. Council approved the policy as presented.

  Bullying Amongst Females - Submitted by Caitie on February 08, 2003  
For a class project I did a project on bullying amongst females in Toronto Catholic Schools. This is what I found out:
-3 out of 4 thought it was more common for girls to pick on girls, than boys to pick on girls
-most bullying amongst girls happens between the ages of 7 and 14
-30% have skipped or wanted to skip school to avoid a bully
-almost half of the girls surveyed admitted to spreading rumours about someone to get back at them
I found these points very interesting. Hopefully this will help some people to become more aware of problems caused by bullying.

  The Spit Brothers - Submitted by Neill on February 12, 2003  
  The Spit Brothers © Words & Lyrics by Neill Kramer Musical Composition by Dave Mampel Download script and listen to two demo songs at: http://www.cyberpuppy.com/spit/Spit_Brothers.htm Contact: Neill Kramer --- neill@cyberpuppy.com *** Synopsis *** Topic: Bullying, father-son and peer-to-peer relationships Length: 45 minutes to 1 hour Cast: 2 main boy actors (ages 8-10); supplementary kid actors (3-5 boys ages 8-10, 1 small girl – or girls playing boy parts); 3 adult actors; kid dancers (between 5 and 20). The Spit Brothers is a contemporary musical that concerns itself with the relationship between two boys, as we see them through their father and son and peer relationships. One boy, RUSTY, has a father that’s too busy to spend much time with him, while the other boy, ROB, has a very caring Dad. ROB has a physical handicap and is confined to a wheelchair during the key section of the play. However, he is mentally normal. RUSTY’S Dad is a businessman. He cares about RUSTY but is desperately trying to keep his business afloat. ROB’S Dad is a clown and is enamored with his son but is also a bit silly. RUSTY is a socially aggressive kid and when he is in a peer group he knows how to control the others. He likes to think he’s a “rock and roller” and a movie star. It’s his way of drawing attention to himself, since try as he might, he can’t get the full attention of his Dad. ROB tries to be an equal to RUSTY, but most of the time it doesn’t work out. There are several scenes where RUSTY repeatedly bullies ROB around. RUSTY eventually pushes ROB''S wheelchair over (after ROB makes a derogatory remark to him). In the next scene, out of sheer frustration and with the help of some of his friends, ROB ambushes RUSTY and smashes eggs onto RUSTY’S head, admonishing him. The resolution of the conflict between RUSTY and ROB occurs when a film crew comes to town. The kids stand behind a roped-off area while the DIRECTOR asks for one local kid to be in a scene. To the surprise of everyone, RUSTY volunteers ROB for the scene. RUSTY then does a cool “move” and suddenly the DIRECTOR wants RUSTY and his “move” to be in the movie, too. The final scene is the repeat of an earlier RUSTY song, “I Think it’s Groovy to Live in a Movie,” but now ROB is up there singing by his side. An epilogue is then performed. RUSTY and ROB are adults. They are amazed to see their babies give each other the same “spit brothers high-five handshake” that they used to give each other when they were kids. Notes: While the play is meant to be performed with children in the lead roles, it is conceivable that adult actors performing as children could work.  
  Do interventions to reduce bullying in a school really work?" - Submitted by anonymous on February 12, 2003  

Dr. Ken Rigby's paper, "Do interventions to reduce bullying in a school really work?", presents valuable insights for educators and parents.

This is a sweeping meta-study of over 13 different evaluations of bullying intervention programs Dr. Ken Rigby, educator and author, presents the most thorough review yet of successful and unsuccessful anti-bullying methods.

His downloadable paper "A meta-evaluation of methods and approaches to reducing bullying in pre-schools and in early primary school in Australia" he compares and contrasts programs in several countries including Australia, Belgium, Canada, England, Finland, Norway, Spain and the United States.

His paper outlines similarities and divergences in anti-bullying programs worldwide and presents detailed thoughts on successful methods and useful combinations.

He concludes that overall, interventions ARE successful in reducing bullying in most cases to varying degrees while noting that interventions begun in kindergarten and primary grades were more successful than with older students. He also notes key success rates differences related to programs that focus on measures related to victimization vs bullying others.

  Together Against Bullying is an ongoing iEARN project in Cario, Egypt, aiming at making the school environment a more peaceful place for students.

We are a group of students from Ramses College for Girls, who simply dream of making this world a better place for children. We thought that bullying is a spreading danger in schools all over the world, which is something worthy of our attention. As students, we believe that our role is also needed in facing this phenomenon and finding effective solutions for it.

We are holding a campaign in our school under the motto: "Together Against Bullying". We are trying to raise awareness about negative effects of bullying, its reasons. We want to find ways to help victims and how we can stop bullying at school. We are also trying to issue some rules against bullying, which we hope will help students in our school and other schools all over Egypt... and the whole world!

We need your support: students, teachers and parents. Let's all cooperate to avoid this physical and psychological torture that children are subjected to from their colleagues. Let's spread a message of love and understanding that will hopefully find its way to the hearts of students all around the world.

  The Stand Up! Speak Out! Project - Submitted by Community Child Abuse Council of Canada on April 09, 2003  

The Stand Up! Speak Out! project including this Resource Curriculum, has been made possible through a grant from Canada’s National Crime Prevention Strategy and is dedicated to the memory of Denyse Rodger-McQuilkin.

This resource is designed for use with students of Grade 7 and 8 age. Our goals are that youth, adults and the community as a whole will:

  • Understand the impact of bullying on its victims.
  • Support the victims of bullying.
  • Believe victims when they report incidents of bullying.
  • Develop strategies for dealing with bullying.
  • Establish consistent consequences for those who bully others.
  • Be responsible and report incidents of bullying they witness.
  • Take action to prevent and/or put an end to bullying.

Each lesson is designed to take approximately 25 – 30 minutes. Teachers and facilitators may modify and adapt the lessons to fit the needs of the learners and the time available. Although the lessons are arranged in an appropriate sequence, lessons may be arranged in an order that is appropriate for the audience and the objectives of the user.

  The Diary - Submitted by Community Child Abuse Council of Canada on April 09, 2003  

“The Diary” is an educational play for youth in Grade 7 and 8 written by Hamilton author Christopher Lane and performed by local students.

The focus is bullying and its effects on victims, bystanders and the bully. Jenny, a young adolescent, relives her experiences of the last year and a half. As Jenny reads her diary entries, portions of her story are re-enacted. As the drama unfolds, the audience is made aware of the impact of bullying on the victim.

The play with the accompanying curriculum identifies the problem of bullying, suggests ways to confront and stop the behaviour, and provides opportunity for continued discussion and learning.
