Adult Driven Abusive Behaviors Must be Eradicated: Blame Students No More
By Rick Jetter, Ph.D.on November 28, 2016

Shifting gears from conceiving bullying as a child issue (that we must eradicate), Dr. Fraser presents a twist that is both thoughtful and poignant: Bullying stems from adults. It is modeled by adults. It is picked up by children. It is a learned behavior. This book sent a chill up my spine and placed a new call to action within my bones for anti-bullying reform and advocacy ...

By Steven R. Shaw., PhD on August 28, 2015

Dr. Fraser presents a series of case studies considering bullying by teachers, coaches, and peers. Creating a childhood free from authority figures who are intimidating, creating trauma, and discouraging is her primary goal. She presents a compelling and readable account of exactly the type of trauma created by harsh teaching and abusive coaching tactics. I hope that her message is accepted by all ...

Kudos to Dr. Fraser
By Randy P Nathan on September 3, 2015

Bullying in Sports is real!! Kudos to Dr. Fraser for raising awareness on this very serious issue. This needs to be required reading for all athletes, parents and coaches at all levels of sports!

A great resource!
By Alicia H. Clark, PsyD on June 7, 2016

An important read on the dangers of bullying at the hands of trusted coaches and teachers, and a powerful call to action to name (and stop) it. For parents and educators alike, this book exposes a prolific culture of bullying under the guise of "old school coaching," dives into the prevalence and background of a topic we wish didn't exist, reminds us to pay closer attention to the emotional health of our children, and inspires us to act.

A book for all parents.
By Josh Chisholm on May 8, 2016

Teaching Bullies is as much a textbook look at the corruption that hides in our school systems and the lagging laws to protect students, as it is a deeply personal insight into a family's plight. The prose is both technical and painfully emotional.
We all want to believe that we are sending out kids to a safe place in our schools. Sometimes evil hides in the most inconspicuous places. Every parent needs to read this book!
