Peacock Writers donate their time and stories willingly to benefit charity. A different theme is picked each time and authors invited to join in. ChrisJean Clarke explains her reasons for doing this.
Bullying knows no boundaries, such as class distinction, age, culture, etc. For many people, especially children the fear of having to face your tormentors daily becomes as daunting as the name-calling and the physical abuse. However, should the tormentor be a young child; they may not realize their pranks may be perceived as bullying.
I truly hope our storybook; 'Springtime Bullies' will bring comfort to any child who has/is experiencing bullying and in turn show children their constant teasing may be construed as bullying.
‘If You Want to be My Friend’ illustrates the importance for a child of school age to learn to laugh at themselves instead of crying. Often this is all it takes to make the teasing stop and new friendships may be forged.
‘I’m No Bully’ illustrates the need for children not to be judgmental or jump to conclusions as everything may not be as it seems. Although, the child may feel justified to be angry their elders may not agree and accuse them of bullying.
