This book is designed to help parents vaccinate their kids against bullies and other obnoxious petty people. By preparing for them in advance you can effectively inoculate yourself against the worst of their behavior. It’s based on behavioral conditioning techniques and will help you learn what exactly has to happen to make a bully stop.
This is a great book. Even though it is geared towards non-religious parents, it still lays out the principles of Humanist parenting quite well and can provide you with helpful ideas on how to provide for the needs of your increasingly independant child.
