This is a great book for mothers to read to understand relational aggression and how to counteract it. As a counselor, I already knew a lot of it, but it is a nice, concise book of information and ideas.

Didn't feel that there was anything groundbreaking in this book. I didn't feel it was well written and parts were repetitive.

Although the authors repeatedly said that RA begins in the preschool-era, there were no actual chapters with solid advice on how to counter the 4 year old version of RA. I hear all sorts of stories about my kid and her classmates using very RA-like words at preschool, and my current advice to her just seems to ring hollow (let alone actually curb any of the activities I'm hearing about). Really, at 4 I'm hearing that my daughter has to wear a dress to school or a particular couple of girls won't ...more

The book Girl Wars: 12 Strategies That Will End Female Bullying by Cheryl Dellasega and Charisse Nixon is a great book for mom's whose daughters are struggling because of aggressive bullying. However, I wouldn't recommend this book to girls in middle school or below because of all of the scientific language. I found it very hard to follow the book because of all of the scientific vocabulary. Although something that I really enjoyed about the book was how the girls shared their stories about diff ...more

The book, Girl Wars: 12 Strategies That Will End Female Bullying by Cheryl Dellasega and Charisse Nixon, is a parenting book for mothers, who are trying to prevent their daughters from going through bullying. This book gives a lot of research, and details about what goes on in a girl's mind when she is bullied. It also gives the causes and effects of things that occur during bullying. I wouldn't recommend this book to middle schoolers, because the text in this book is quite challenging. Although ...more

Overall it was a very informative book about girl aggression. It allows one to understand that any time aggression (aka girl drama) takes place, that isn't a faze that should ever be acceptable, endured, or put-up with. It has strategies to help prepare, avoid, deal with, and overcome girls who are having problems with their relationships. The only thing that I wish it had is more advice and support for younger girls and teachers who have problems with students who deal with relationship aggress ...more

The book, Girl Wars: 12 Strategies That Will End Female Bullying by Cheryl Dellasega and Charisse Nixon, is a read for mothers who are trying to help their daughters get through bullying. I would not recommend this book to middle schoolers because the text is more complex than what we usually read. Although, the stories that the girls wrote from their experience of bullying were very interesting. I could relate to the narratives in the book because I had memories very similar to these girls in t ...more

Wonderful and inspiring!: This book on female bullying is an absolutely wonderful. "Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can break your heart." That's what female bullying would hurt girls deeply. This book is worth reading and there are some great take-home points. I really enjoyed the book and found it helpful. Only if I read it earlier!

Read this book if you have young girls or work around them! RA- Relational Aggression is one of the biggest problems in schools today. "RA ...is the use of relationships rather than fists to hurt another". p. 2

This is a must read for anyone who has a young lady. The idea that we don't have to settle for the usual attitude of "that's just the way girls are," is a message that I feel is extremely important. This is a very good book, complete with a step-by-step solution to handle Relational Aggression.
