Author and teaching major Courtney Jefferson pens new book on popular and important issue in today’s school systems
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – According to the National Education Association, it is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. With staggering statistics such as these, it isn’t hard to see a growing problem for today’s youth. To help those being bullied, or even those who are bullies themselves, Courtney Jefferson has penned her new book Shoo, Bobby Don’t Bother Me! (published by AuthorHouse).
Shoo, Bobby Don’t Bother Me! tells the story of Billy Bubbles, a youngster who is being bullied at school by Bobby Mitchell, the biggest boy in class. Through his trials and tribulations, readers will learn important tactics on the proper way to deal with a bully and that it is okay to speak up for themselves.
Jefferson was inspired to write her book when she met a little girl who was being bullied her first year in school. “She was in kindergarten and was already having problems with a bully,” she explains. “I then began to think about all the other children out there who are being bullied, have been bullied, or are bullies themselves. I wanted to address this issue head on.”
“Bullying is starting younger and younger and my book addresses it on an elementary level.”
