Synopsis

Teaching children how to navigate the complex social universe, this everyday strategy guide helps them to develop healthy social skills. Informed by current research on character development, this handbook helps parents, educators, and health-care workers understand which critical social skills determine future success and how to incorporate the teaching of those skills into everyday life. Practical advice emphasizes building children's resilience and the management of social conflicts while teaching them how to make and keep friends and appreciate their own strengths and the strengths of others. A troubleshooting section addresses common problems and how to solve them, and two addenda focus on specific socialization issues faced by educators and health-care workers.
