    1 thought on “Bully Nation

    1. This book highlights the important discussion we should be having, especially in regards to labels and how they shut down productive conversations and conflict resolution. It should be read by all legislators before they pass any additional laws regarding bullying.

    2. This book was incredibly successful in challenging my perspective on how we currently deal with bullying in our schools. The anti-bullying rhetoric shouldn't be blindly accepted. However, as much as Porter challenged the current system, she couldn't actually prove that her beliefs were any more grounded in truth. The book is filled with anecdote after anecdote, which can be interesting to read, but doesn't further the argument that bully rhetoric is harmful. In the end, I enjoyed reading Porter' [...]

    3. This book really opened my eyes to the reality of bullying amongst children and adolescents. I had never really thought about the lines being as blurred as they are in the cases that Porter uses to illustrate the mislabeling of "bully" and "victim." The divide is not that clearcut. And I can see how our current beliefs surrounding these situations can be detrimental in preventing future incidents.

    4. This book really takes a unique perspective on bullying. She spends 3/4 of the book explaining why we should not use bully language and in the last chapter provides how we should handle childhood issues between peers. As an educator who is on the bullying committee, it gives me reason to pause and think about the labels we are using in these situations.

    5. This book provides best information I've seen yet for parents and educators on the subject of "bullying". Porter's well thought out and researched work is a plea for sanity in how we deal with this issue.

    6. This is a book every educator and parent (and policy maker!) needs to read! It will definitely affect the bullying policy we design for Esperanza.
