We are putting the final touches on our new e-book, Bullying – What Adults Need to Know and Do to Keep Kids Safe and it will be available later this week.
I’ve been working on much of this book for many years, but always had too many other projects to get it done. Finally, about a month ago, after another round of tragic news stories, we got a call from a mother whose daughter was crying every day before she went to school because of bullying.
This family was living in a place where we don’t have a Kidpower program. With so many heartbreaking stories of kids who had not gotten the help they need fresh in my mind, I couldn’t bear to just sent this mother to our website, so I spent an hour talking with her on the phone about how to get support for her daughter, how to advocate for her daughter at school, and how to make a plan to keep her child safe.
After this very emotional call, we made it a top priority to get this book done as an e-book, so we can share the information and skills from our over 20 years at Kidpower with people everywhere. We will gather feedback and ideas and then publish this as a printed book next March.
