A very sensible guide to helping primary-school age kids get on with each other, 20 Sept. 2013
It covers a lot of different reasons why children struggle to make and keep friends or even just to get by in a group, with chapters on children who are shy, intimidating, short-fused, vulnerable, little adults, pessimistic, domineering or just marching to their own drum. It offers lots of different suggestions to make it easier for them to manage their problems and get along with other children, with plenty of examples. It's nicely laid out and easy to read. Most children probably benefit from more than one chapter and the book recommends other chapters. It would be nice to have a version for children at secondary school age!
