Description
The Bully Brakers, a most realistic, highly informative, children’s novel is a Must Read for students, educators and parents. It takes an intense look a social, verbal, sexual, physical, and cyber bullying from inside the schools as told by those most involved- the students. Elementary, middle and high school students trying to get an education have found comfort and sound advice on how to handle overly aggressive behaviors in students at school. Bullies (5 types) including the cyber bully, victims (2 types), and bystanders (4 types) all learn the roles of each and how to prevent these roles from halting the educational process. People from around the globe will find this e-book highly informative, action-packed, and extremely educational when considering how to engage urban students in schools. Classroom teachers learn how to control classroom climates, increase student study habits, strategize on how to advocate for victims and bystanders as well as redirect the bullies’ behaviors in the schools and community. Teachers in schools in the United States have learned how to use this book as part of their lessons due to its easy application to The Common Core Standards and Bloom’s Taxonomy for student learning. School administrators now employ the printed version of The Bully Brakers due to the positive effects the intertwined lessons have on the student populations and teachers’ attitudes. Administrators can get back to ensuring that teaching and learning are taking place in all classrooms instead of taking precious moments to figure out how to handle the overly aggressive children’s behaviors. In my experiences as a guidance counselor, several parents have found themselves lost in the shuffle while trying to figure out how to interact with their children as they pass from those grade school years into secondary education. The Bully Brakers explores the changing mindset of children as they transition through what has been called ‘the turbulent teen years’ by some parents and grandparents who’ve had experiences in child rearing. Parents have to understand that this change is inevitable and WE parents must be willing to learn how to recognize the changes our children undergo as necessary. Parents hold the key to making this experience a good one or a horrible one depending on how we react to our children when they test the house rules, regulations, and boundaries. The Bully Brakers help to maintain or restore order within the home as it teaches how to rebuild the relationship between the students and parents, parents and schools, along with the students and the educators. The Bully Brakers is much more than another book on the bullying subject. It is a MUST READ for all educators, students and parents. Schools, students and parents have already begun to feel the impact of this realistic novel. Order your copy of The Bully Brakers today!!
