Teenagers will find this strikes a chord for a multitude of commonly-met situations.
Teachers will find it a wealth of assembly content and advice.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
My nine year old daughter is being bullied by two girls at school and her "So Called Friend" joins in when it suits her.
This book has been invaluable in helping her to deal with the bullying.
She wrote down coping strategies from the book on a piece of paper to take into school (which caused me to burst into tears but is a good sign that she is taking back control).
It has also helped her understand that the her "so called friend" is not a friend at all.
It is funny and has made us both laugh.
She loves the quizzes that are throughout the book.
We have role played situations and body postures that have made us cry with laughter (and she has already used some at school).
And it has helped me to help her as my initial advice of "just ignore it" was clearly rubbish!
For any other parents who are felling the anguish of a bullied child, BUY THIS BOOK NOW!
Good strong consistent appropriate advice on how children can build their self esteem, this does not mean read the book and life issues are resolved. The book is a tool, mantra and support is required to reinforce this until issues are resolved and children are more able to help semselves.
Brilliant buy - do not expect all schools to support children who are bullied. Bullying policies are often disregarded and it is easier to remove the child being bullied than the bully. In conjuction with this book there is advice from Kid Scape and ABC on the internet.
