No parent wants to see their kid suffer.

Review from Professional Counselor:
“I don’t think I’ve ever written to an author before, no matter how much I enjoyed a book. This time is an exception, for good reason. Before I have finished reading your book I was able to use it in a counseling session with a client. She came in completely emotionally distraught over an ex-husband bullying her. I was able to use several phrases of yours to help her gain insight into her situation, see the bully for what he is, and help her realize she can improve her situation. She gained hope in 15 minutes! Your book is to have the credit for the success in that moment. I’m so grateful for having read into that little book before she walked into my office. And I had no idea that book was preparing me for that moment. I’ve already found your website, signed up for the newsletter you offer, intend to order at least five more of the book to offer to clients, and to learn more about your brand and practice of humanism. I am a contract clinician at Healing Hearts of Southwest Oklahoma in Lawton, OK. I will share this book and encourage the other clinicians to read it and use it. I guess you might say, You’ve made a believer out of me (I didn’t want to say “disciple”). With gratitude and appreciation,” – D. Strange LPC NCC
“The Bully Vaccine is an easily digestible book that should be added to your anti-bullying bookshelf. Don’t let the kid-friendly book cover fool you – Jen addresses issues that are relevant to adults as well.” – from Nuggets of Wisdom in “The Bully Vaccine” by Andrea Weckerle of CivilNation.org
“I really enjoyed reading your book. I think it can be a great tool for kids and parents alike! It was interesting, provided helpful, useful, real-life tips and was ‘readable’ for young people.” – Maggie Davenport, assistant director for ALSO Out Youth – Please consider donating to this charity for GLBT youth in Sarasota FL
Your book fills a void for so many folks, young and old-thanks! – Gail Hendrick
This is a very practical and thorough book that helps handle bullies of all kinds and helps the reader learn the skills they need to live a life without fear of other people hassling them in minor or major ways. This book goes right to the heart of why bullies do what they do and breaks down the game they are playing in detail, to teach us to not fall into their traps, to be confident with ourselves and not be as bothered by the pathetic behavior of the insecure bullies. I recommend this for anyone, not just school children, because there are bullies everywhere, and we can all use some help learning to be less fearful of those who would make us feel small. – David Musick
