Self-assured, assertive kids are not only less likely to be picked on by their peers, they're also less likely to bully others. But it's not always easy for children to find a healthy middle ground between passivity and aggression. If your child is a frequent target for bullies, or has begun to tease and take advantage of other kids, the easy and effective activities in Cool, Calm, and Confident can help. These simple exercises help children stand up for themselves without coming across as aggressive, learn to be both kind and assertive, and develop self-confidence and a positive self-image. Using this workbook is an easy and effective way to instill self-esteem in both passive and aggressive children-a strength that will prove invaluable in childhood, in their teenage years, and throughout their lives. Help children to: - Learn the difference between passive, aggressive, and assertive behavior - Behave in ways that discourage teasing - Understand their rights and stand up for themselves - Stay calm and learn skills for managing anger - Make real and lasting friendships

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from will turn to again and again I love the exercises in this book on identifying assertive language and using it. MY FIVE YEAR OLD gets it and has begun employing it in our every day life - instead of "I wish I had that" , he actually says "Mom, I want that - may I please have it for my birthday?" a small, but significant change in how he expects to be heard that he will use for the rest of his life. We are so happy and will turn back to this book with every challenge down the road...again and again.
