“Not only does this book provide a Singaporean perspective on bullying and the sad accounts
of what some children have had to endure, it is also well researched and discusses this issue
with much depth, insight and sensitivity. Excellent!”
Counselling Psychologist, Singapore
Breaking the Silence provides a peek into what bullying is really like in Singapore. True stories and large-scale surveys conducted with children in Singapore schools provide a comprehensive account of the nature and prevalence of traditional and cyber bullying in both primary and secondary schools. This book examines the risk factors involved in bullying — for the victim, the bully and the community — together with the harmful consequences, and also considers the roles parents and community leaders can play in combating this serious problem.
