Adults talk less with children about bullying the older they get. And the older the children become, the more embarrassing it gets to tell them about your own experiences of bullying and ask them about theirs. This book provides answers to questions young people do not always dare to ask: Isn’t it better not to be a friend, than to be a false friend? Is it okay to prioritize yourself and the ones you have most in common with, or are you then contributing to freeze out someone? How can you help a friend who is being bullied? Is it my fault that I am being bullied? Once a bully, always a bully?

The book contains stories and questions from children and young people, and gives a brief introduction to their rights and what they can expect from the adults around them.

In 2010, Kristin Oudmayer (b. 1973) published the book Because I deserve it? A book about bullying, hope and responsibility. The book was a collection of stories she received following a frustrated message she posted in social media. After the publication, Oudmayer was offered a position in UNICEF Norway to lead their Norwegian program. In 2014, she published the book You are more important than you think – A book about the prevention of and dealing  with bullying, which was well-received both by the general public and professional circles. Oudmayer is frequently invited as guest lecturer.
