Beyond Sticks and Stones: Bullying, Cyberbullying, and Abuse
★★★★★ "It's no secret that bullying is a serious issue for today's youth. With newer technologies giving cyberbullies more tools to work with, and the terrifying reality of bullycide (children killing themselves after being bullied), it's important for parents to be in the know on this topic. This book may be brief, but it is jam packed with important info about the history and different types of bullying, as well as signs parents should keep an eye out for if they suspect their child may be being bullied. The end of the book also highlights important bullying cases that have been in the news over the past few years. Great read for anyone looking to learn more about bullying!" - JennyS
