She also dispels persistent myths: that girls bully more than boys, that online and in-person bullying are entirely distinct, that bullying is a common cause of suicide, and that harsh criminal penalties are an effective deterrent.
The author tries to break down what the research says about bullying and its effects, offering ideas for what can and should be done to minimize or reduce it.

The author shows how educators can flag problematic behaviors and frame effective responses. She puts a special focus on "gateway" behaviors--those subtle actions that, unchecked, can quickly escalate into more serious misbehavior--and explores how students perceive their own and their peers' behavior.
