Stop Bullies - teach your kids about bullying while they are young!


I had to share this important book with you – hopefully it will save some of your children the pain of bullying or being bullied.

One day after major surgery, my friend Nadia Sahari was looking out her window and began to think of what to do during her six month recovery. There it was right in front of her face! She saw him - THE BULLY CAT. The title came instantly and the story began.

Star was a bully cat and he was mean to all the other cats in her yard. She pulled out the laptop and wrote the story as she lived it and as she saw it for the next six months. All the cats were her inspiration as well as the news on TV and in papers. She could not stand the idea of another child being bullied and then possibly committing suicide. Her heart broke each time and each time it caused a setback for her. She thought of the children and the animals that are so innocent and have no control over what happens to them. Something had to be done!

I knew her children’s book, THE BULLY CAT would definitely help younger children understand, learn and give them the teachings from an interesting cat story since all kids seem to love cats. She made it fun and colorful, too.

The statistics are alarming. According to the ASPCC each day an estimated 160,000 in the USA refuse to go to school because they dread the physical and verbal aggression of their peers. Many more attend school in a chronic state of anxiety and depression. It's reported that 6 out of 10 American youth witness bully at least once a day.

Buy this book for your own family or someone else, but spread the word and help stop this terrible trend. Thanks for your care and concern.
