Ben is being bullied at school. Other boys shove him, call him names and leave him out of games. Who can help him? What can he do?
One in five children are bullied at school. Bullying can be overt: physical and verbal, or covert: passive-aggressive and excluding. Bullying can create a legacy for life if no one intervenes.
Beating the Bullies is a guide for 7–11 year old boys and girls written by Clinical Psychologist Dr Lucy Blunt. In the form of an innovative children’s chapter book, it gives age-appropriate information aimed to “upskill” the child and give them “bully-proof strategies” for coping. Beating the Bullies also has two invaluable resource guides; one for parents (who often feel powerless and helpless at this time) and one for teachers (with class specific questions and activities).
Illustrated by Dr Blunt’s daughter, Chloe Osborn, Beating the Bullies is engaging and interactive and an essential resource to tackle the damaging and important issue of bullying.
