Synopsis: Is there a bully in your life that you don’t know how to deal with?
I had one too.
It prompted me to write ‘Chestnuts: A True Story About Being Bullied,’ a book outlining practical strategies for defending against bullies and resolving the conflict and aggression that often plagues victims of bullying.
Inside these pages, I will take you through my own harrowing journey with bullies – from boarding school beat-ups, to violent attacks from crazed skinheads on the streets of London, to bullies in public school in America.
In each chapter a reflection of my personal story will show you what I did wrong, and how you can actually defend yourself in this modern day and age.
* How bullying is perceived by bullies, victims, parents and teachers
* What goes on in the mind of a bully, and what you can do about it
* How authority figures often make bullying even worse
* The steps you can take to defend yourself, find help and heal from the trauma
In ‘Chestnuts: A True Story About Being Bullied,’ you will find out how to deal with psychological, emotional and physical bullying – and even what to do when one of your teachers is being a bully.
The author, who was a victim of bullying, shares his painful experiences. He changes from a happy child who loves to learn into a child who only seeks to get through each day. He struggles to gain help from authority figures, who sometimes appear to be bullies themselves. The challenges faced by the author are effectively used as teaching tools to enlighten readers and aide in ending the suffering bullies inflict on their victims. The book reiterates that victims must report bullies, but also provides tips to outsmart them. This helps victims to invoke their inner strength and ultimately overcome the bully.
Chestnuts: A True Story About Being Bullied is a thought-provoking, eye-opening book. It is a good read for anyone facing the tragic epidemic of bullying. Available on Amazon.
