But is it Bullying?
Teaching Positive Relationships To Young Children

`The guidance is clear, practical and teacher-friendly and encapsulates current best primary practice' - TES Extra for Special Needs
Bullying establishes itself as soon as young children begin to engage in social groups - someone is left out… someone is different… someone gets hurt. If you are eager to intervene early to support children aged 5 - 12 years in forming collaborative and empathic relationships, this is the resource to help you do it!
Using research findings from over 400 children's views, the book looks at:
- physical aggression
- verbal harm
- taking and breaking
Each lesson plan follows the same format with a poster-related discussion, class and follow-up activities, developmental work, research activity and lesson review. The book comes with a CD-ROM to print out the six posters as well as 48 individual illustrations. You will not be disappointed with the ease with which the author's ideas translate into classroom use!

I delivered a workshop to a charity working with children with learning disabilities. I recommended this book to them as it was accessible and gave simple yet excellent advise.
