This book shatters popular myths about bullying to reveal its stark realities. You'll learn who's playing the intimidation game, and how they play it, from social exclusion, physical violence, and emotional backstabbing to sexual sleaze and cyberspace cruelty. But No Room for Bullies takes you beyond problem recognition to proven solutions. Parents will find: how to advocate for a child and work with the school when bullying is a problem; a safe Internet-Surfing contract for kids that lays down the law on Internet use at home; helpful strategies on what to do when a child acts like a bully, is a victim, or suffers from "bystander silence". School administrators will find: suggestions on how to measure the social climate of schools, including sample surveys to give to students, staff, and parents; a 12-point checklist on preventing problems in hallways, classrooms, and common areas. Teachers will find: advice for creating and enforcing classroom rules, including an "Airport Rule" that gives students a sense of safety; ideas to minimize the chaos that occurs during passing periods and in "unowned" areas like restrooms and hallways.
