Ever walk into a book store and just get overwhelmed. I have read more than my fair share and I am happy to share my opinions. Below you will find various resources I have personally read and reviewed to assist with bullying and life in general.

By Paula Todd
I really got more than I bargained for with this book. I was looking for something more about cyber bullying. This book covers cyber bullying minimaly. But it opened my eyes to a variety of online threats that parents should be aware of. I created an overview for you here.
Quoted from the inside leaf:
