Unfortunately, bullying happens to kids of all ages. Parent, teachers, and school administrators are expected to know how to manage bullying. In book 3 of the "Kids Have Problems Too" series, five-year-old, Kaylee describes how she and her friend Brittany do their best to deal with bullying at school.
I wrote this book to provide caregivers, teachers, school counselors, and clinicians with a tool to help kids begin to talk about strategies for handling bullying empathetically. I hope you find this book and the subsequent discussion questions and tips helpful as you support a child in your care.
