Helped my daughter through a difficult time,
This review is from: Stand Up for Yourself and Your Friends: Dealing with Bullies and Bossiness and Finding a Better Way (Paperback)
This book was wonderful in helping my 6 year old daughter through a difficult time with a child she deemed a friend.
She could not understand her friend's on-again, off-again behavior. This book was valuable to my daughter as it
was clear cut, easy to read and chock full of different examples on how to handle situations that hurt her feelings.
It also taught my daughter that the kids that say or do hurtful things may be dealing with their own issues at home or in school. The book talks about not letting others take your power/self-esteem away...and how to hold on to it when you feel sad and powerless in the "moment". It talks about strategies, who to talk to, how to react, how to help and when to bring in an adult. This covers mean kids all the way to bullying. We read the whole book in one sitting and she paid close attention. Really well written, layout is very clear and I would recommend to any parent dealing with the social arena at school.
