This banal story, thousands children daily live it under anxious eye of their parents, divided between guiltiness and helplessness. These violences touch also the "good students ".

A story, a context is hidden behind each fact which put in presence an attacker and attacked, but also there are some spectators more or less active. Strong of her experiment of pédopsychiatre, Nicole Catheline analyzes these complex processes and underlines the regulating part which the adults should play - parents or teachers. To live its schooling in safety is a basic right of the child: that supposes to supervise and punish, certainly, but also to listen the students, to help the parents and to set up suitable educational policies. We must work together to have a healthy school .
