Bullying is Bogus

October is National Bullying Awareness Month. It's important to talk to your child about bullying and accepting everyone for their differences.

According to PACER -- a national bullying prevention center-- "more than 55 percent of bullying situations will stop when a peer intervenes. Student education of how to address bullying for peers is critical, as is the support of adults."

Here's a list of books to help you get the conversation started:
