Goodreads review- Raising a Cool Kind Kid – Bullying Prevention Tips by Barbara Gilmour
Gayle Pace Bemiown’sReview—Condensed
5 out of Stars!
…It isn’t easy being a child or a teen these days. SO much peer pressure. If you are the least bit different, you are subjected to bullying… Some kids don’t learn the values of kindness and respectfulness at home. To reject bullying, children need confidence and social skills. The author tells about how being “Cool” is being kind, caring and respectful. Being “Uncool” is being a bully. Children must learn to stand up for themselves and learn how to say “No” when needed. Don’t let bullying continue. If you see it happening, step in and help. Be an advocate for stopping bullying. A nice feature is at the end of the book there are some spaces for the young ones to write what they would do “if”. It gives a personal touch for the reader. We need these kind of teaching books for our young ones.
