Publisher Comments:

HELP YOUR CHILD STAND UP FOR WHAT'S RIGHT WITHOUT GETTING CLOBBERED<P>"Hey, Shorty, what's your problem?" "Everyone will think you're stupid if you don't come". "You wanna fight me on that?" Every parent knows the truth: Sticks and stones certainly hurt, and so can names and words. Unfortunately, criticism, teasing, ridicule, coercion, and conflict are an inevitable part of every child's life. This unique book will help you give your children the verbal tools to counter the hurtful words others tell them — and that they tell themselves. Each chapter, based on the characteristics of a particular bird, uses a wealth of examples, sample scripts, and imaginative, easy-to-follow exercises to give kids the confidence to speak up for themselves more assertively, yet gently and effectively. Help your child learn how to: <BR>-- resist peer pressure (the Way of the Blue Jay)<BR>-- accept blame (the Way of the Crow)<BR>-- shut down bullies (the Way of the Hummingbird)<BR>-- resolve conflicts (the Way of the Dove)<BR>-- overcome shyness (the Way of the Blackbird)<BR>-- talk back to self-defeating thoughts (the Way of the Owl)<BR>-- live more mindfully (the Way of the Hawk)

Synopsis:

Simple and effective exercises to help kids, from grade schoolers through teens, stand up for themselves. Illustrations.
