A recent study found that child violence emerges from feelings of persecution or harassment, and from being bullied.
"It's My Turn! Authors Dwyer and Schuepbach capture in pictures and rhyme the hurt and fright that bullied children feel, and offer parents, caregivers, educators—and most of all, kids—tools to break the cycle of violence." ---Barbara Coloroso, Author of The Bully, The Bullied, and The Bystander: From Pre-School to High School--How Parents and Teachers Can Help Break the Cycle of Violence.
"Philip's experience with bullying in It's My Turn! reflects the reality of many students across America. Anxieties about bullying all too often disrupt learning and seldom are intentionally resolved. It's My Turn! provides classroom teachers the opportunity to speak to this issue through the voices of imagined characters rather than real students, prompting conversations that offer both acknowledgement of the problem and hope for a solution."
--Dr. Phil Hunsberger, National Distinguished Principal of Illinois, NAESP, Director of the International Network of Principals' Centers.
