No Kidding About Bullying Update

My warmest thanks to all the teachers across the country who've offered to participate in the research study of No Kidding About Bullying. There are so many people wanting to take part, and I wish we could say yes to all of you! However, there are no longer any openings for the study. We may do a Part 2 after this one, so look for future notices in upcoming blog posts and newsletters.

The book is available to everyone at, and if you decide to use it with your class or group, I would love to hear about your experiences. I am about to launch a No Kidding About Bullying blog. Anyone using the book is invited to post their thoughts, questions, and writings (including student work). I will let you know as soon as the blog is up. By the way, click here for a free session from No Kidding About Bullying on helping kids deal with exclusion and rejection. You can download and use right now. If you are a parent, feel free to pass it on to your child’s teacher.
