“Taking the Bully by the Horns”

by Kathy Noll & Dr. Jay Carter 0-937004-11-1 (Alt.ISBN 0-937004-06-5) 

This is a book for children and educators. It offers practical strategies and explains the motivation for bullying behaviors. Why do kids want to hurt other kids?

“Taking the Bully by the Horns,” won National Awards for “Saving Children’s Lives, Making the World a Better Place, and Empowering Those in Need.” This book covers the serious issues of bullying, school violence, and low self-esteem. It is based on Dr. Jay Carter’s best-selling book, “Nasty People,” and is designed to bolster the self-respect and self-esteem of both the victims and the bullies. It addresses this epidemic issue that has been depriving children of self-esteem (sometimes leading to violent crimes and suicide) by offering smart, empowering, proactive “BULLY” solutions.

This book teaches children and teens how to successfully handle bullies while maintaining a good, healthy self-esteem. There is even a chapter directed at the bullies themselves — helping them to stop their negative behavior.  Many bullies started out as victims. We need to break the “Bully Cycle.”  Students in Elementary through Jr. High can role-play scenarios in this book.  This helps them see first hand how their actions affect others.

We recommend that schools order a copy of  “Taking the Bully by the Horns” to keep in the library or counselor’s office so that it is available for students in need.

This book is an essential tool to improve school safety and save children’s lives.

1 out of 4 kids will be bullied this month.  IT’S TIME TO DO SOMETHING

(Autographed collector’s item/illustrated — For Educators, Parents, and Students of All Ages)

“The EDA Bullying Workbook”

by Kathy Noll ISBN-13: 9780937004036

“The Bullying Workbook,”  was developed by request from educators and parents seeking an interactive follow-up to “Taking the Bully by the Horns.”  After each story in this Workbook, students take notes to discuss bullying and other serious issues while examining the actions and behaviors of the characters — including how certain situations could have been handled better. Kids are asked to compare these situations to their own lives and decide what they’ve learned. There is a Q & A section at the end of each chapter and pages for note taking. Each chapter shows examples of someone doing good or helping someone else out who is being bullied, or is in a difficult situation. This is what the author, Kathy Noll, is encouraging the bystanders of bullying to do. The book encourages kids to care enough to get involved in stopping negative behavior and preventing others from getting hurt.

This workbook helps kids build positive character traits, conquer fears, make the right choices, and improve self-esteem. The book also helps bullies lessen their anger, understand how their behavior affects others, and gives them something positive to aspire to. The stories are motivational, inspiring, adventurous, and sometimes humorous to keep the readers attention so they don’t miss the “lesson.”  Children (& adults!) enjoy this book & benefit from it. Teachers & Parents successfully use this book with their kids in the classroom and at home. For All Ages.

“The Bully Caterpillar”

Harold was a Bully Caterpillar. He was the biggest caterpillar around. He picked on all the other caterpillars because he thought they were weak.  He hid his loneliness and sadness with meanness.  He hid his lack of confidence by being arrogant. He was afraid he couldn’t actually fend for himself, so he acted entitled to take things from others. He couldn’t admit to himself that he was actually jealous. He needed something special to happen to him, then one day a butterfly came along and changed his life. This story teaches kids how bullying affects the victims and the bully, and why it is wrong.  It is a touching story — adults love it too.

In workshops for younger students, Dr. Carter picks a volunteer or two to help him tell the story of his book, “The Bully Caterpillar,” which he shows via colored transparencies on a projector.  This is an excellent role-playing program for elementary schools to use in their classrooms. It’s entertaining, educational, and gets their attention. The book and story have also now been made into a short film which can be shown at assemblies as well. It recently won Awards at the New York Film Festival!

Discounts available for ordering multiple copies.

***This story is also available on DVD as an award-winning animated film.
