Special features of this book:
* Information on family-school partnerships to engage families in the development of a caring community and to reinforce teachings about empathy and mutual respect.
* Techniques to teach children how to think about and manage their feelings in a safe and appropriate way.
* Tips for teaching children how to act appropriately as a "bystander." Children who stand by while a friend is being teased and bullied may be uneasy or even scared that they might be next. They feel powerless and learn negative ways to interact with others. Teachers have the opportunity to work with bystanders, helping them to develop the confidence to stand up for a friend. As a result, children will become more able to stand up for themselves and not tolerate teasing and bullying behavior.
The Anti-Bullying and Teasing Book creates an environment that reinforces the positive messages essential to children's sense of safety and well-being. Some such messages are quoted from "Hurt-Free Schools" by M. Christine Mattise:
