Availability: Ready to download

As a society, we are only just beginning to understand the degree of damage that bullying inflicts on individual teenagers and on their relationships later in life. In this groundbreaking work, James Garbarino and Ellen deLara uncover the staggering extent of emotional cruelty and its ramifications and counter the nursery rhyme that words don't hurt. In this groundbreaking As a society, we are only just beginning to understand the degree of damage that bullying inflicts on individual teenagers and on their relationships later in life. In this groundbreaking work, James Garbarino and Ellen deLara uncover the staggering extent of emotional cruelty and its ramifications and counter the nursery rhyme that words don't hurt. In this groundbreaking work, James Garbarino, the bestselling author of Lost Boys, and Ellen deLara uncover the staggering extent and consequences of schoolyard bullying and classroom hostility, flat-out contradicting the nursery rhyme that "words can never hurt you." The authors then present evidence that teenagers—hundreds of whom they interviewed—have the solution to school violence, if only adults would listen. Bullying has long been regarded as a way of life. Ever since Columbine, however, student reactions to harassment and intimidation are, finally, driving parents to consider this phenomenon seriously. And Words Can Hurt Forever teaches parents to accept reality (bullying occurs daily), challenge old beliefs ("Kids will be kids" or "If I lived through it, so can they"), and ally with other parents to take on the school system. Revelatory and ultimately uplifting, And Words Can Hurt Forever doesn't just highlight the problem, but offers steps that can be taken—must be taken—to solve it.

    Very disappointing in its paucity of solutions, particularly in failing to take into account the myriad and steadily multiplying legal constraints on schools with respect to discipline.

The book focuses on the topics mentioned in the title and includes many interviews with real students on the tough subjects. This book was pretty interesting. The authors are mostly gearing the book towards parents, but as a future teacher I still think it had a lot of good and interesting information. I mostly enjoyed hearing about bullying and harassment from the students. The chapters end with suggestions for parents, and I mostly skipped over those. I found the chapter on peer predictability the most interesting, because it was something I'd never explicitly thought about but that makes a lot of sense: students feel safer when they can predict their peers' actions. Overall, this book was worth the read, and I think another going to work at schools can benefit from this.

    This is a very thorough book on the topic of bullying, harassment, and emotional violence. The discussion had lots of documented facts from research, as well as quotes from all those involved - student victims, student bystanders, student bullies, teachers, administrators. Each chapter had a "What You Can Do" section that has a list of good ideas to help with particular problems. I have several of those pages earmarked to reread, or to discuss.

The discussion had lots of documented facts from research, as well as quotes from all those involved - student victims, student bystanders, student bullies, teachers, administrators. Each chapter had a "What You Can Do" section that has a list of good ideas to help with particular problems. I have several of those pages earmarked to reread, or to discuss. There are discussions of everything from serious violence and drug abuse-related violence to "lesser" forms of teasing. Points of interest for me is discussing with a child about various "unsafe" places in a school, different types of teasing (friendly vs. mean), coping mechanisms, and resources for teaching assertiveness.
