7 Insightful Books On The Act Of Bullying

Learn what drives the bully and how to stand up to them.

Bullying is a despicable act, no matter how you look at it. It is a way for the bully to impose themselves and their opinions upon whomever they pick as their target. An escape valve to let their internal aggression out on someone that has nothing to do with it in the first place. It is quite simply a reprehensible act that should be punished accordingly.

The thing about eradicating bullying is that it is an impossible task. There will always be individuals who enjoy imposing themselves as a way of feeling powerful, be it at the classroom, the office, or the boardroom. So it’s imperative to learn how to effectively deal with these personalities who, more often than not, are weak and cowardly themselves. Learn the ways to dismantle a bully by reading these books.

#5 Odd Girl Out by Rachel Simmons

Odd Girl Out by Rachel Simmons
Odd Girl Out is a MUST READ for EVERY parent, teacher, counselor and coach of girls ages 11 – 18. Simmons provides truth bombs and invaluable insight in to an often overlooked topic of female aggression. As a Licensed Professional Counseling Associate who specializes in teens, this book provided me with a deeper insight in to the subtleties of symptoms to look for and a reminder of the social dynamics of middle and high school.

I recommend getting the updated version which includes information on cyberbullying and the importance of social networks. I cannot recommend this book enough as a resource to help further understanding of female bulling and providing the language to accurately articulate and process the topic with the girls in our lives.
