And like a virus, their obnoxiousness can be debilitating. Which is why she wrote The Bully Vaccine: How to Innoculate Yourself Against Bullies and Other Petty People. Jennifer and Craig talk about how to treat bullies (slapping them upside the head is a no-no. Whodathunkit??), techniques you can use to stop bullying effectively, how bullies and untrained animals are not dissimilar and other things you can do to stop bullying in the workplace. There are also some great tips on how kids can stop bullies as well.
Her book provides very specific and practical information on how exactly to go about ending bullying. The more you understand about the dynamic of what is happening, the better able you will be able to help yourself navigate the social situations you find yourself in. And the sooner you learn these skills, the better off you are going to be.
