Anyone who has seen my post about 10 Great Books to Help an Angry Child knows that I have had a lot of success with child-led inquiry. Basically, this is when a child is able to discover the answers to their problems. The books featured below do just that.
I was surprised how many of my students checked out the following books out on my lending library shelf in my self-contained emotional impairment classroom. A few of my students said they were only looking at them because they wanted to see “how stupid they were”. Regardless of their claims, these students read the books from cover to cover. They also did a great job when answering the prompts from when they made their own bullying dice. Guess I need to find more “stupid books”!

There is a wonderful website called www.bullies2buddies. Izzy Kalman, psychologist, teaches children how to respond to bullying on their own without need of intervention. The communication techniques he teaches are so fun and easy to learn, and so effective that within a couple of days, the bullying is over and the bullies are now friends with the kid they bullied. It is amazing to watch, and the bullied kid gets such a kick out of seeing their former bully confused and stammering. Please visit this website, for your children's sakes, because in one or two fun private sessions, he can teach your child communication techniques that besides being effective, promote social confidence and emotional maturity. I know a child who learned it and within two days, the entire class was turned around and everyone was friends.

That's amazing! That's what kids should be learning about how to respond to bullying
