From the moment your child starts playgroup or school and some kid steals their play lunch or favourite toy, parents worry about bullying. It's no wonder. Everyone is bullied at some stage in their life, and childhood memories of miseries in the playground or at home with siblings put parents on alert. Mark Dobson knows all about it. As a schoolboy he watched bullies in the playground and when he joined a youth club it became even worse. As a youth worker he decided what was needed was a strategy to help both parents and children - and today he talks to more than 10,000 people every year about how to deal with the problem of bullies. BACK OFF BULLY offers practical strategies not only for dealing with the schoolyard bully, but the bully at work, the boss who won't listen and how to resolve conflict without tears. This book will change lives.
