Erase the Problem of Bullying
Bullying, discrimination, teasing, and abuse are harmful. Some violate your civil rights, as well. And all of them are wrong. Bullies nearly kept NBA All Star James Donaldson from a successful basketball career. Abby was bullied by her friends' parents because of her mom's occupation. Federal prisoner Cedric Dean learned at a young age to bully others to get what he wanted, but now works to educate troubled youth. Their stories, along with many others, offer insight into bullying from the perspective of both the victim and the bully. Experts, from authors to retired court judges, share information and resources to help both kids and parents learn their rights and ways to protect from bullying. Others have survived bullying and built successful lives. You can, too!
