Reading about bullying can help you give your child tips and tricks on how to handle bullies. It can help you talk together about bullying, and give you a chance to let your child know that she can always come to you if she's having bully problems at school.
Here are two lists of helpful books on bullying:
• Books you can read with your child about bullying
• Books you can read about bullying
If you don't find these books at your library, ask your city or school librarian to recommend others.
