It hits me on every page, what happened in my life, and how it was handled inappropriately or not handled at all. When my daughter was bullied at school every day by a group of boys, and she was afraid to tell me. When my other daughter was a bully, scaring others. When I was lonely as a child and passed on loneliness to my children. How and when to help, or stay out of, conflicts kids have. How to be supportive and sensitive without taking away their autonomy, their opportunity to learn how to treat others, both family and strangers. How to empathize with others who are just as fearful, hurt, or angry as you are. How to just reach out with kindness and be willing to understand, and willing to sit and listen. What do they do about bullies, at school, on the net? What do they do about gangs of kids who are mean, destructive, intimidating? How do working parents find the time and energy to give personal guidance to kids struggling to survive in this messed up society? How do we pry the electronic toys out of their hands, turn off the TV, and teach them how to live, not just survive, but thrive in this world? There is so much hope and potential, if you read this book.
