Dr. Fraser presents a series of case studies considering bullying by teachers, coaches, and peers. Creating a childhood free from authority figures who are intimidating, creating trauma, and discouraging is her primary goal. She presents a compelling and readable account of exactly the type of trauma created by harsh teaching and abusive coaching tactics. I hope that her message is accepted by all--to be an academic or athletic success high standards are required, but abuse is not necessary and is counter productive in both the short and long term. Supportive coaches are winning coaches. Supportive teachers are successful teachers. The culture of teaching and coaching needs to change and Dr. Fraser has created a compelling case for change.
