Great Resources for Parents on Bullying and Cyberbullying

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. It also happens to be the month in which I’ve taken public my months-long research project into the impact of bullying upon gifted and twice exceptional (“2E”) kids and their families. The research will culminate in a book for GHF Press in 2015.

UPDATE October 2015: The book is available NOW!

Although it was only early this week that I first shared my research/book project, I’ve already been inundated with information, book recommendations, and other suggestions from friends and social media followers. (You can read about my survey here.) Thank you all for sharing your thoughts!

In recognition of what a “hot topic” this is for my readers and friends–and in honor of bullying prevention month, I want to give you a sampling of resources that I’ve found useful. Bear in mind these are resources about bullying in very general terms. I welcome your recommendations and ideas as they pertain specifically to the gifted/2e population.

Do you have any books or other resources that you’d like to add to this list?

Moving forward, I will be keeping a Pinterest board (in collaboration with Gifted Homeschoolers Forum, the parent non-profit of my publisher) on the topic of bullying and relational aggression. If this topic is of interest to you–or if you’d just like to see how one author uses Pinterest to collect information, you may wish to follow that board.

Note, too, that you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Sulia and now Goodreads. You’re also welcome to subscribe to this website via RSS feed. I anticipate continuing my “blog to book” series with this project (as with the last one, How to Work and Homeschool ) in order to give you, the reader, a sense of the process one goes through when creating a non-fiction book.
