BULLIED: What Every Parent, Teacher, and Kid Needs To Know About Ending the Cycle of Fear

2020: Featured as Amazon Editors’ Pick – Best Nonfiction


Multiple-award-winning author Carrie Goldman has garnered national and international acclaim for her work on bullying and social conflict. In Bullied, Goldman brings together the expertise of leading authorities with the candid accounts of families dealing firsthand with peer victimization to present proven strategies and concrete tools for teaching children how to speak up and carry themselves with confidence; call each other out on cruelty; resolve conflict; cope with teasing, taunting, physical abuse, and cyberbullying; and be smart consumers of technology and media.  Bullied won a National Parenting Publication Award and a Mom’s Choice Award, both at the gold medal level, which is the highest honor offered.

As a mother, Goldman calls on us all–families, schools, communities, retailers, celebrities, and media–to fiercely examine our own stereotypes and embrace our joint responsibility for creating a culture of acceptance and respect.

For parents, educators, and anyone still wrestling with past experiences of victimization and fear, Bullied is an eye-opening, prescriptive, and ultimately uplifting guide to raising diverse, empathetic, tolerant kids in a caring and safe world.

Even ninja turtles need a little advice on bullying, sometimes!


Encouraging messages are important! This one says “You never deserve to be mistreated. Not based on your gender, your size, your race, your religion, your abilities, your nationality…never! You deserver respect. You matter. You are important.”

An Amazon reviewer of Bullied says this: “I devoured this book in two days, and immediately knew I would be making changes to the conversations I have with my daughter.”
