you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: The people I deal
with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest,
jealous and surly. They are like this because they do not know
how to tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good,
and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer
has a nature related to my own not of the same blood
or birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine.
And so none of them can hurt me. No one can implicate me in
ugliness. Nor can I feel angry at my relative, or hate him.
We were born to work together like feet, hands and eyes, like
the two rows of teeth, upper and lower. To obstruct each other
is unnatural. To feel anger at someone, to turn your back on
him: these are obstructions.

Sheras, professor in the Curry Programs in Clinical and School
Psychology, with Sherill Tippins, author. Your Child: Bully
or Victim? Understanding and Ending Schoolyard Tyranny. Simon
book is intended as a hands-on, practical guide for the parents
of the nearly one in three schoolchildren affected by bullying.
The authors cover such topics as knowing when its time
to step in and talk to other adults to protect your child and
how to refute common (and dangerous) myths, such as boys
will be boys and just ignore them and theyll
go away. They also describe successful school programs
that combat bullying.
