Emotionally Resilient Tweens and Teens by John Kim Payne and Luis Fernando Llosa is essential reading for parents of grade schoolers through teens experiencing bullying, social exclusion, and teasing—with uplifting stories from young adults who have navigated those experiences and triumphed.
“This book is a great tool for parents to support their teens and tweens that are experiencing bullying in any form.”
“Filled with advice for parents about what to do and not to do, about “belonging”, bullying/cyberbullying and how to let their children know they are there for them.”
“I like the real life stories from teens who have had challenging experiences in school. Each story explores the teens experience with being bullied and ways they tried to get it to stop. Each of these teens find someone, an adult such as a parent or teacher who helped them through that time. The stories are open, honest, emotional and inspirational. These stories can help parents learn strategies to support their children who are having a difficult time.”
“I like how this book is organized with the practical advice at the beginning and then the ten true life stories. There are a lot of strategies to help parents and caregivers support the teens and tweens in their lives who are going through difficult situations.”
“I found it to be easy to read, well organized and interesting. The stories are very personal and true to life and parents will get an idea of what their children may be going through.”
“I think this book would be a good one to buy for parents and anyone working with tweens and teens- so teachers, counselors, social workers etc.”
