Books About Bullies

Bullying is a serious subject lots of kids face. Now there are two new books about bullying. Whether you have been bullied, are being bullied, know someone who's being bullied or are a bully yourself, these are two great reads that can help you learn more about the topic - and help you learn how to put an end to bullying.

How To Handle A Bully By Nancy Wilcox Richards

This is part of a series of books by Nancy Wilcox Richards that includes a cast of characters who have to dealk with different kinds of bullies. In How To Handle A Bully, Rilla and her friends meet at the park every day to practice for their town's first annual Fitness Challenge - first prize is a brand-new bike! But Rilla's challenge won't just be to ace all the events, including the bicycle obstacle cours - she's got to be able to handle the playground bullies, too.

I Am Jack By Susanne Gervay

This is a very special story by Susanne Gervay about a boy named Jack. Jack has a problem. The school bully has started calling him Bum-head. Soon, the whole school is calling him names, spitting at him, even hurting him physically. Jack can't tell his mum because she has too many other things to worry about. He will have to work it out for himself. But there aren't any quick fixes or Band-Aids to fix Jack's problem - the solution comes only when the people around him work together to tackle the problem for Jack and for all other victims of bullying.

@rainbowpoptart Well, I'd have to disagree with you there my friend. Naturally the audience that buys Barbie dolls are young girls. At a young age and with multimedia today girls are highly influenced by what they see on the TV, Magazine, and you guessed it their toys. Seeing is believing and with the unreachable beauty standards you see in magazines, it's kinda hard for girls to not want to pursue to be skinner and the likes. But anyway, your right with the Barbie being independent woman that don't need a man. But I think this new line is showing that all types of girls can be independent. This new line is expanding its skin colors, giving different hip sizes and different heights and different types of hair styles. It's no longer the blond haired and blue eyed type of deal. I think this is representing that there are many different kinds of people and different kinds of shape a sizes. With the television showing perfect fictional girl characters, or models on magazines, and other places, I think that it's good that they're showing different body types.

@urifour11  I don't disagree with that. Well, not entirely. I disagree with your Barbie comments. Pink is Barbie's everything, and making something not pink for the female Barbie dolls would be a bit.. not Barbie.  I don't like their changing of the body shapes all too much. Barbie is supposed to be an exceptionally good-looking woman who shows girls that they don't need a man to be happy with their lives (though some people may think otherwise because of Ken's existence) and that they can do literally whatever they want to. It sounds really harsh, but I think it's the individual's fault for thinking they need to look a certain way to be accepted.  Although I strongly disagree with the newer dolls, I do completely respect why they're doing it. I'm sure they're working on the Lego sets. They already have dolls, so Legos should be here any day now, haha. And @Pink_Cool_Girl I want to look into the computer thing you were talking about to continue that discussion, but I'm super busy right now (I'm multi-tasking like crazy ugh). It'll have to wait until tomorrow. :P
