As promised, I’m running a giveaway of “Gifted, Bullied, Resilient” over on Goodreads! Details here.
A couple of reviews of the book from the site:
“Quick essential read for parents and anyone that works with kids. I loved the distinction between normal childhood conflict (with its benefits) and bullying (with its long term health, emotional, psychological, and social consequences for EVERYONE involved, not just the victim). The author gives clear and concise definitions and explanations interspersed with relevant anecdotes. I was glad to see she touched on Levine and Kline’s (Trauma-Proofing Your Child) vital understanding of trauma being in the eyes of the beholder, not merely a function of the specifics of the events. Simple practical tips to follow and I can’t wait to dive into the wealth of quality resources given at the end. This is definitely a book I’ll be coming back to again and again as my kids grow and encounter new social challenges.“
“This has some good points and again emphasizes the need for adults to understand when there is a problem and work to help all the children involved. Not backing up children when they need help handling social situations is not the best way to handle this important issue.
I wish we would take this issue as seriously as we take sports and teach our children how to behave and care about other people as stridently as we teach them to read or kick a ball.”
