WILMINGTON, NC, March 15, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to information found on BullyingStatics.org, upwards of 50% of children will experience bullying at school. Many of them will experience this on a regular basis. Special needs kids, like everyone else, experience this every day.
Jody Sharpe is uniquely qualified to address this issue, as she is a retired special needs educator and is the author of a newly released book that addresses bullying, 'Town of Angels'. She recently offered some information on her website that offers a unique way for special needs kids to handle bullies.
"Teaching children to handle bullying was primary in my teaching career," Sharpe stated. "These children are most vulnerable yet can be taught tools to help. One teacher I admired taught a very timid student a most remarkable way to counteract the bullying. The teacher taught Tammy, a teenager, to stand up for herself when other children would tease her by saying and spelling the word, R U D E! Then Tammy would add with a smile, 'How rude!' It was remarkable to witness this extremely quiet and shy teenage girl to actually find power in her comment given with humor back to those bullies. The teacher found a way to strengthen Tammy's self esteem and Tammy enjoyed her newfound strength. Teaching all children to stand up for themselves makes the angels sing."
Jody Sharpe is an award winning author of several books about angels. She recently announced that her latest book, 'Town Of Angels', is now available in both print and ebook format. The new book is also available in print from online and traditional booksellers.
It is angel vs. bully in the town of Mystic Bay, California, where a well kept secret lies. Angels live as humans there. After angels appeared to three children all was blissful in the town full of psychics, and ordinary folk. But as a bully, Klaus Waxman, comes to town, Angel Ken Leighton, a storeowner, must carefully guide his flock of humans not to give to in to the bully's efforts. As Klaus opens a store mocking the resident angels sightings, Angel Ken guides psychic Justine Greer and her family to thwart his efforts. And with the help of the indomitable oldest psychic in town, Madam Norma, the bully meets his match with soft voices and intuitive minds…
Sharpe also presents stories and interviews about angels in her 'Tuesdays With The Angels' blog series.

Jody Sharpe knows angels exist. Her first book, 'The Angel's Daughter', was written in memory of her daughter Kate. Her second book, 'To Catch An Angel', was written in memory of her husband Steve.
Over a decade ago, when her daughter died tragically Sharpe faced down the most difficult challenge of her life. She was determined not to just merely survive, but to live; to honor the life of her beloved daughter, her twins, her husband and the rest of the rich life she had created before the tragedy. Blessed with an inherently positive outlook these trying times were strengthened by influences from the late Norman Vincent Peale to the children's book character, Wilbur the pig. For Sharpe, ministers of spirit and guidance took the form of angels. Sharpe's openness to change led her to write her first novel, 'The Angel's Daughter'. The story that takes place in the fictitious town of Mystic Bay, California and encompasses all Sharpe's attitudes about goodness, healing and moving on.
Jody is also the author of 'To Catch An Angel', written in memory of her late husband Steve. In 'To Catch An Angel', miracles happen in Mystic Bay, California, the town with the psychic and angel vibe. Angels are calling. Psychic Maggie Malone returns home to find she's swept up in the miracle of it all. She can't imagine why her mother left or who her father might be. But these questions pale in comparison to the wonder of the angels. Maggie meets writer, Noah Greenstreet. They realize they've met before, but where? Maggie and Noah embark on a journey to find our world is all awash with angels.
Jody was chosen as a winner in the annual '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' Book Awards. She was chosen from a field of hundreds of authors through a public voting process.
Sharpe's books have received a large number of rave reviews. A recent Amazon review stated, "This book would make a beautiful Christmas Hallmark movie.
