Bullying is a major concern for parents, and with good reason. According to an American Justice Department school bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics study, 77 percent of the students said they had been bullied, and 14 percent of those who were bullied reported they experienced severe reactions to the abuse. One out of every five kids admitted to being a bully, and it's reported that a whopping 160,000 students miss school every day for fear of being bullied. Whether your kids are getting bullied — or doing the bullying — before heading off to school, check out these books to help talk to your kids about the difficult topic.
