Good morning friends of the Wordspinner’s place.
Last weeks experiment into problem solving was interesting. The response at best was mediocre. The content at best was diasappointing.
That tells me this blog is not doing what it was supposed to do, which is to bring fresh ideas into a world of stale platitudes.
Therefore, I will return to my original format and stray no more.
That being said, I want to take this opportunity to re-run a review of the Hiron’s book “Death to Bullying”. What brings this up is the Zimmerman Trial. No matter what your feelings are about the trial, I don’t think you can avoid the conclusion that George Zimmerman was being a bully that fateful day.
Here’s the review:
Bullying takes many forms, some of which are covert and subliminal.
I came across a book recently that does an outstanding job of looking not only at the various types of bullying, but one that also offers programs to deal with the issue.
Rather than going on, I’ll paste my review below. I highly recommend this book to teachers, parents, supervisors and anyone who has either bullied or been bullied.
5.0 out of 5 stars BULLYING NO MORE, April 6, 2013
By Kenneth J. Janssen (Centerville, OH USA) – See all my reviews
This review is from: Death to Bullying (Kindle Edition)
There are a lot of books and magazine articles about Bullying on the market, but this is the first I’ve seen that not only identifies all aspects of bullying, but offers practical programs for dealing with it.
The book was authored by Dale Hirons with contributions from Robert Hirons and Gary Hirons.
Death to Bullying is nothing less than a complete guide to dealing with a practice that has been with us from the beginning of time. I experienced my fair share of bullying and to my shame, did a little myself.
Death to Bullying means just that. The irreversible damage done by bullying needs to stop. Read this book, watch for, and correct, any of your own bullying behavior and tell your friends about it . The more people understand this insidious behavior, the sooner we will put an end to it. Bravo to the Hirons for this magnificent work.
That’s all for now. Next week we’ll take off on a new adventure, so be sure to come back to The Wordspinner’s Place.
In the interim, my very best to you,
Ken (The Wordspinner)
