    A Valuable Resource

    This new book from Jonathan McKee is a MUST-READ book for everyone! For parents, grandparents, teachers and anyone else who has young people in their lives. The Bullying Breakthrough is full of helpful suggestions to help deal with this serious problem that is plaguing our society. Have you ever had your child or grandchild come home from school and appear to be starving? Most of us would question or perhaps assume that they hadn't eaten lunch because they didn't like what was being served. What if "they skipped lunch in fear of walking through certain areas, or because their lunch money was stolen or their lunch tray dumped again". (p.124) The author himself was once bullied and he describes his bullying and how he felt. In a very telling paragraph he relates that "...I had an amazing home life. And I can tell you, if I had access to a gun in junior high, I would have considered blowing away not only the entire "Kill Jon Club" but every one of of the smug bystanders who laugh at their jokes and T-shirts! (Wow, did I just put that in print?) By God's grace, I never did. But take it from me, public ridicule does something to you mentally. It festers and boils, becoming something poisonous." (p. 159) In his introduction McKee mentions the hundreds of surveys and interviews he conducted over several months so that he could write this book. He shares the stories of young people that we recognize from news accounts but there are so many more mentioned who have experienced this hurtful behavior and we knew nothing about them until now. He also offers many tips for recognizing, understanding and reaching out to these victims. Page after page, readers are offered "real help for parents and teachers of the bullied, bystanders and bullies". Because, as guilty as the bullies are, there is also guilt that should be placed on the bystanders. People who watch and laugh and people who watch and do nothing. At the end of each chapter there are discussion questions and the book ends with several pages of notes to help us find more resources discussing this problem. I would hope that every school and every church would add this book to their libraries and I will suggest that my local public library purchase it also. I cannot recommend The Bullying Breakthrough enough! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

    A must-read for those who want to know more about

    The Bullying Breakthrough is an eye-opening book that will help anyone dealing with "the bullied, the bystanders, and the bullies." Written by a man who experienced bullying in his own life, this book seeks to help give an inside glimpse into why people bully others, why people stand on the sidelines without taking action, and how the people who are bullied are affected. Mr. McKee has interviewed many who fit into each category and has provided helpful insight into the who's the why's and the how's of bullying. If you or your children are or have been bullied, have been a bully, or have stood by not knowing what to do, or if you are a teacher or youth worker, this book will help you more fully the dynamics of bullying. Especially rampant, cyberbullying has taken this issue to a whole other level - one where it has been multiplied by the pervasiveness of the internet in our and our children's lives. Read this book, share this book. It is an important tool that will help you, if not solve some cases of bullying, at least help get into the mindset of all three parties involved. Every little step in understanding this issue is a step in the right direction. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. The thoughts and opinions are mine alone.
