Stop Bullying in Its Tracks: The Pre-K/K Years

Are you the parent of a Pre-K, Low-K or Kindergarten student? Did you know that bullying behavior--which differs from normal childhood conflict--begins as young as age three?

We've put together a selection of books targeted toward the younger child. Our booklist focuses on bullying, strong friendships and empathy building. Storytelling and the conversations that result are a great way to reinforce positive behaviors and help children deal with stress.

We've also provided a tip sheet to help you and your child "work" the anti-bullying tools in his or her built-in toolkit.
