Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy
Bully. If one of Emily Bazelon’s objectives in writing Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy was to help readers think more broadly about the subject of bullying, she succeeded with me. As a journalist and attorney, Bazelon approached this subject open to understanding the complexity of the issues involved. What preconceptions she brought to the subject became questioned as she investigated a variety of situations. The stories she presents in this book reveal the many gray areas involved in individual incidents of bullying and in the culture in which we live. Parents are an obvious target audience, and this book gives a lot of information to be worried about as well as some suggestions on what to do when raising children.
