Every day thousands of young children and teens wake up afraid to go to school. The statistics are startling. One in three American schoolchildren in grades six through 10 are affected by bullying. Eighty-three percent of girls and 79 percent of boys report experiencing harassment. Bullying affects millions of children regardless of race or class. Many parents and teachers don't always notice that a child is being bullied, and if they do, many are unsure what to do about it. Intervention is necessary and education is essential in order to stop bullying in schools, homes and workplaces.
TeachAde, the leading online site that provides free resources and communities exclusively to support educators, is facing the epidemic of bullying head-on by offering valuable educational resources that focus on bullying, cyber-bullying and student safety via the TeachAde Store. Books and DVDs such as “121 Strategies For Bully Proofing Your School,” and “Bullyproof Your Child for Life,” are just two examples of newly available resources offered by the TeachAde Store that can help educators and parents address and offer solutions to this subject.
According to statistics from the National Education Association, 71 percent of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school, 282,000 students are physically attacked in secondary schools each month and 90 percent of fourth through eighth graders report being victims of bullying.
In addition to resources dealing with bullying and student safety, the TeachAde Store also contains more than 300 unique and often hard-to-find books and videos for children, teens, parents and teachers about adolescence, growing up, and other valued topics. These resources are directed at all levels of development and need, from toddlers and teens to parents and educators.
“This store was built with the purpose of providing hard-to-find educational books and videos in one easy-to-use site that educators can utilize,” said Michael Pearce, CEO of TeachAde.com. The Teachade Store accepts purchase orders from school systems instead of requiring educators to use personal funds.

A website that pioneered the idea of providing free service online exclusively for educators, TeachAde helps educators break out of stagnant information ruts and discover a world of trusted resources that enrich their classrooms and their careers.
