Exploring why children bully others and what schools can do about it
Are children born to bully others or is upbringing and schooling to blame? The answer is clearly not straightforward. Dr Graham Ramsden addresses these and other important questions in an attempt to explore what schools can do to address this very damaging and endemic social act.
The Bully in The Greenhouse puts the child who bullies at the very centre of this exploration and scrutinises the act of bullying from range of perspectives. As we circle the greenhouse – a metaphor for looking at things from different perspectives – the book explores how societies create their own bullies as well as what some of the key components of child development tell us about why some children choose to bully others.
Written in an easy to read and often humorous style, The Bully in the Greenhouse uses social and psychological research to identify what schools, parents and children themselves can do to reduce bullying in schools.
