By Scott Cooper

What if every kid had a handy toolbox of ways to get along with others? That’s just what this book is: a collection of 21 concrete strategies kids can pull out and use to express themselves, build relationships, end arguments and fights, halt bullying, and beat unhappy feelings.

For example:

  • the Mighty Might, which takes all the fun out of teasing
  • the Thought Chop, which helps kids resist self-defeating thoughts
  • the Squeaky Wheel, a type of persistence that gets results
  • the Coin Toss, a simple way to resolve small conflicts

Each tool is clearly described, illustrated with true-to-life examples, and accompanied by dialogue and lines kids can practice and use. Stories and anecdotes show each tool in action. A terrific resource for any young person – and any adult committed to teaching social skills. Includes a note to adults.

128 pages. 6 x 9. Softcover. 2005.
