Local father writes anti-bullying book

Posted:

A Bristol father is taking a stand against bullying.

Two weeks ago, Marvin Mitchell released his book titled Bully Me No More. He says his 9-year-old son Marvin Mitchell, Jr. inspired the idea to write the book. "One day my son came home and was being bullied."

Mitchell says that's the first time bullying hit so close to home. "It's hard and it's really painful to see your child come home in tears from being bullied. You try to protect your child anyway you can."

His book is for ages 4-9 because he says bullying starts at a very young age. "I'm hoping it sends a positive message."

In 2005, Mitchell says he published his first children's book. It was an adventure book called Peter and the Dragon, but now he has switched his focus. "I'm hoping that the kids will actually pay attention to the story and relize that everything and everyone has been bullied and that it needs to stop."

He plans on releasing two more anti-bully books this year with hopes that the message to stop bullying will spread quickly. "I believe it should be in every school and every library."

His son says Bully Me No More is his favorite book and he hopes all bullies will listen to the message of his dad's book and stop.

Bullying Me No More can be found at Amazon and Barnes & Nobles. For Martin's official website, click here.
