Greeley, CO.-- As young people from preschool through high school begin this new school year in a highly charged climate, parents, educators, and students need to have a serious conversation about bullying and its intended and unintended consequences.
Barbara Coloroso is an international bestselling author, and for the past 48 years an internationally-recognized speaker and consultant--on parenting, teaching, school discipline, positive school climate, bullying, grieving, nonviolent conflict resolution, genocide, and restorative justice.
Her uniquely effective strategies were developed through years of training in sociology, special education, and philosophy, as well as field-tested through her experiences as a classroom teacher, laboratory school instructor, university instructor, seminar leader, volunteer in Rwanda with orphans from the 1994 genocide, and as a mother of three (now grown).
Barbara is the author of four international bestsellers: kids are worth it! Giving Your Child the Gift of Inner Discipline; Parenting Through Crisis;-Helping Kids in Times of Loss, Grief and Change; Just Because It’s Not Wrong Doesn’t Make It Right—From Toddlers to Teens, Teaching Kids to Think and Act Ethically and her latest book, The Bully, the Bullied, and the Not-So-Innocent Bystander—From Preschool Through High School and Beyond, Breaking the Cycle of Violence and Creating More Deeply Caring Communities. In Barbara’s book, Extraordinary Evil: A Brief History of Genocide...and Why it Matters, she discusses the premise that it is a short walk from hateful rhetoric to hate crimes to crimes against humanity, and that the walk begins with verbal taunts.
