The subject of “bullying” has been gaining momentum, replacing a nonchalant attitude driven by a nonchalant label. Evidence emerges on the psychological front that bullying has lasting, debilitating effects on mental health and self-image, as evidenced by a surge in eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and suicides. Bullied children often spend their adulthoods casting themselves in similar roles, perpetuating the cycle.
The National Youth Violence Prevention Resources Center and The Health Resources and Services Administration reports that 15% to 25% of students in the U.S. are bullied. US bullying behavior has seen a 5% increase. Children who are obese, gay, or have disabilities are at a 63% increased risk.
Bullied children as well as their aggressors are more likely to be experiencing family dysfunction, domestic violence, conduct and personality disorders, and criminal conduct than the general school population. Bullying magnifies these genetic and environmental predisposing risk factors.

Beyond Bullying: Breaking The Cycle of Shame, Bullying and Violence Dr. Jonathan Fast
Fast delves into the psychology and sociology of shame and concludes that this powerful emotion is the common thread explaining the recent rise in domestic terrorism and gun violence, school and online bullying, and suicide among adolescents. Fast hopes that by understanding shame-why we feel it and how it can fester-we can develop strategies to prevent the acts of violence and hate that are motivated by it.--Scientific American MIND

Bullying is not a new topic. It has been around since biblical times with such stories as David and Goliath, and Joseph whose brothers were so jealous of their father's favoritism that they sold him to the Egyptians and told their father he was dead.
Today, bullying has taken a a new phase with cyberbullying. Kids can be involved in bullying behind a screen, anonymously in their own homes.
Today's special guest, Jill Vanderwood has experienced bullying first hand. In the fifth grade she told on a boy who stole her eraser. All the boys in her class vowed to get her back. The bullying began that year and continued into high school. One boy even brought a gas mask to school for his friend who had to sit next to her in class.
In her new book, Erase the Problem of Bullying Jill Vanderwood shares her own story along with the stories of others who have been bullied, such as NBA All Star, James Donaldson, who nearly gave up on a basketball career because of the problem he was having with bullies.
Jill Ammon Vanderwood is the award winning author of eight books. Her books have won the Indie Excellence Award, Gold and Silver Quill from the League of Utah Writers, USA Best Books Award and the National Mom's Choice Award.
