This began Carrie Goldman’s journey of writing Bullied: What Every Parent, Teacher, and Kid Needs to Know About Ending the Cycle of Fear. (HarperOne (August 14, 2012)
Bullied is a captivating blend of stories, current research and practical guidance. Carrie Goldman’s odyssey as a blogger mom at the epicenter makes her a powerful voice for positive change. Her insights make this a comprehensive and indispensable bullying prevention resource.
