The bully, the bullied and the not so innocent bystander

Review by Rachel Walker, School Teacher

Coloroso, B. (2016). William Morrow Paperbacks

Reflection is how we look at ourselves, what we have done or said and gives us the opportunity to make changes going forward. This book provided me with many opportunities to reflect on my past experiences as a student, a teacher, but more importantly, as a human. Some of the discussions scared me and made me think that maybe I hadn’t done enough in previous situations. Others reassured me that I was doing the right thing. 

No one is perfect but if we acknowledge and learn from our past, it might just help someone to overcome what they are going through as a bully, a bullied or a not so innocent bystander.
