Personal anecdotes from prominent antibullying activists and celebrities alongside essays from renowned experts, authors, government officials, and educators offer powerful insights, resources, and concrete steps to combat the bullying epidemic. An essential part of any campaign to decrease bullying and increase empathy, the book also follows the stories of the families featured in the film beyond the big screen, who contribute valuable advice on the timely topic of bullying in our nation. This guide is crucial for parents, educators, school administrators, and anyone who is committed to the 13 million schoolchildren who will face bullying this year."--Back cover
