Joey Mason is a shy fourth grader who loves to play with his dog and cat. Joey lives in Toronto, Canada, in a residential community with a nice park where he is free to play outside. Unfortunately, after school one day, Joey's outdoor playtime turned into a nightmare for him. Why? Because of the bullies.

Joey was just minding his own business, but for some reason, (which was completely out of his control) he became the target of a group of bullies. For some kids, bullying is “the easy way out,” but more often than not, bullies learn how to behave that way at home.

Ask yourselves this question: What could Joey have possibly done to upset a few random strangers? He was just playing outside and keeping to himself. But there are many reasons why bullies, well…bully. Some families operate through control, verbal aggression, intimidation, making the aggressors feel small and helpless. And now, these bullies were planning on taking out their frustrations on someone else: poor little Joey.

For some reason, a group of teens had recently turned their eyes to him that spring. For weeks, it seemed that every time and everywhere Joey went after school, they were there to bully him. But Joey was a tough kid and didn't let the name-calling get to him. That was, until one day, the bullying took a scary turn.

We do our best to bully-proof our kids, and Joey had some great social skills to handle this issue. So far, his bullies had stuck to verbal-aggression and intimidation only. But when this group of mean boys decided to kick things up a notch, Joey ended up stuck in a tough situation, and he needed help...fast.
