Taking the Bully by the Horns

Written & Researched by Kathy Noll & Dr. Jay Carter

Aggressive behavior that is intentional with an imbalance of power.

The Definition of Bullying

Welcome to “Taking the Bully by the Horns” website and book. Our work has received awards for “Empowering Students, Making the World a Safer Place, and Saving Children’s Lives.” Our hope and intention is to lessen this epidemic issue that has been depriving children of self-esteem (sometimes leading to violent crimes & suicide) by offering smart, empowering, proactive “bullying” solutions.

Bullying Takes Many Forms

Teasing / Mean WordsThreats / Harassment
Physical Abuse / HittingMental / Emotional Abuse
Cyber Bullying / Harmful TextsRobbery / Damaged Property
Leaving Someone Out / ExclusionGossip / Rumors
Manipulating OthersPlotting Mischief / Sabotage
Negative Body LanguageIntimidation

Children who are statistics of bullying fit into 1 of 3 categories:

  • Bully
  • Victim
  • Bystander

Bystanders of bullying are those who stand watching and do nothing.
Many bullies claim to have once been victims of bullying themselves. We need to help prevent this cruel endless cycle.

Victims of bullying would benefit from reading our book “Taking the Bully by the Horns,” helping them improve their self-esteem, find their strength, and learn to trust again.

I faced the thing I feared the most

and now it all seems clear.

I found the strength inside of me.

And all I’ve lost is fear.

“Taking the Bully by the Horns” – learn more about Bullying. Self-help Manuel for Schools & Students.

Students require the right tools to prevent bullying from happening. This book gives the reader the opportunity to be an active participant in openly discussing this issue either as a class group, or privately in the provided note section of the book.

Bullying Prevention needs to be top priority in schools now. Half of all schools do not take bullying prevention seriously which puts them at risk of:

  • losing students,
  • earning a bad reputation,
  • risking the safety of staff and students,
  • and dealing with angry families seeking legal action.
Consequently, the courts usually take the side of the family due to the fact that more and more bullying laws are being passed by state governments — leaving less excuse for schools to not already have bullying programs set into place, including bullying books and instructions available for counselors and students in their libraries.

A recent study reported that victims of bullying are 10 times more likely to report suicidal thoughts than other children. Let’s start working together now – “Taking the Bully by the Horns.”
