Newly revised and updated, it''s the ultimate resource for any kid who''s ever been picked on at school, bossed around, blamed for things he or she didn''t do, or treated unfairly - and for any kid who sometimes feels frustrated, angry, powerless, or scared. Simple words and real-life examples show how children can stick up for themselves with other kids (including bullies and teasers), big sisters and brothers, even grown-ups.

Kids learn how to build relationships, become responsible, manage their anger, grow a " feelings vocabulary," make good choices, solve problems, set goals, and "store" happiness and pride. Questions from real kids are paired with answers about how to handle specific situations calmly, confidently, and effectively. A special note to parents and teachers explores the "self-esteem backlash" and explains what self-esteem really is - and why kids today need it more than ever.

"A great resource for classroom exercises, as well as for any group that works with kids".--National Parenting Center
