Bullies Don't Bother Me: Biblical Conflict Resolution Strategies for Kids
Bullies are noisy, bossy, rude, threatening, or annoying people that lack courage and respect for themselves and others. They hurt or harm others emotionally or physically. Bullying is a form of behavior that causes conflict. The behavior can be obvious (e.g. fighting, hitting, or name calling) or it can be sneaky (e.g. excluding someone from the group, whispering or posting something online about them). The Bible has many examples of people that handled conflict well. I hope these strategies will help you to respond to bullies the way Jesus and other Bible characters did. You can read my book alone or with a parent. It can be used as a devotional or activity book. Be sure to read the exciting Bible stories suggested with each strategy.
