My latest children’s book, “Pepper and the Bullies,” is now available through CreateSpace and Amazon. In the fifth book of the Connie and Friends series, Pepper is terrified when two big dogs bully him. Days later, he remains skittish and scared until a romp in the woods brings him face to face with one of his enemies! What will Pepper do? Will he help his enemy?
Bullying is a serious issue for many children in today’s culture. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), bullies target those who seem to be less powerful, not as strong or “different.” Bullying can be physical, verbal or electronic and may include hitting, name calling or sending insulting emails or texts. A bully might also spread rumors or exclude a person from activities or conversations. The CDC warns, “Bullying, teasing, and harassment should not be considered normal rites of passage or just ‘kids being kids.’”
