What parents are saying"My nine-year-old daughter was being bullied on the school bus. I didn't know at first and was so frustrated when she kept getting to bus stop late and I had to take her to school. I knew something was wrong and she finally admitted that another girl who was two years older was making fun of her. I did some internet research and came across Beyond Being Bullied and we've really enjoyed working together and looking at all the wonderful things about her. She still isn't happy about riding the bus, but she feels much more confident and is able to tell me when she's just not comfortable enough to ride to school.""Thank you so much for this valuable resource. It's been helpful with our son since he started being bullied in fourth grade this year. He's really been able to take those negative messages and turn them around.""My wife and I have been very worried about our eleven-year-old son. He has mild autism and finds it difficult to make friends. As we all know, some kids can be cruel, but this book has helped him really explore feelings he has difficulty getting in touch with. He's also learned how much he likes to write and I think it's given him such a wonderful skill and way to learn more about his own and other people's feelings."
