If there’s one goal . . . it’s to dispel the myth that bullying is just a harmless rite of passage or an inevitable part of growing up. It’s not. —President Barack Obama at the first-ever White House Conference on Bullying Prevention, 2011
Cosmic Citizen continues from last week's show on Bullying, with inspirational speaker, author, activist. researcher Kristen Caven - Co-Author (along with her mother Dr. Louise Hart) of The Bullying Antidote. Kristen lives in Oakland CA, with her family, where she writes blog: the Zorgos Reader, & Life in the Fast Brain, a popular blog about ADHD, for ADDitude Magazine and is also PTSA president at a large Oakland high school. We look forward to exploring the ideas and the ripple effects turning to waves as groups of parents to learn the principals outlined in this MUST READ, amazing book.
Hazelden Publishing asked Dr. Hart to write a book on bullying, which she agreed to as long as Kristen could co-author. They researched all the best knowledge on the problem of bullying and wove it together in The Bullying Antidote, which presents this societal 'human rights' problem that can be solved by parents & teachers who are willing to create more positive environments.
Her mother, Dr. Louise Hart, is an acclaimed international speaker and author of The Winning Family, On the Wings of Self-Esteem, as well.
Their blog shares the best current thinking on bullying issues. Check out links at: www.zorgos.wordpress.com, www.kristencaven.com and www.drlouisehart.com for books ordering and more contact information.
