From the cover:
"Roni Cohen-Sandler [shows that] kids can learn lifelong lessons in these [social] experiences. They need to know there is meanness in the world, and they need to figure out how they are going to deal with it." -- USA Today
"Cohen-Sandler is well aware of the difficulties of raising a girl in today's complicated world. . . .She provides mothers with lots of reassurance as well as real strategies for maintaining strong, loving mother-daughter connections." --The San Diego Union-Tribune
"...the book is clear, concise, engaging, and practical, and delivers insights and information in a way that allows ease of access for parents and teachers. . . .It should help teachers assess, reflect on, and respond more effectively to student behaviors and needs. . . .I could see this as a text used in counselor education courses that emphasize adolescent behavior and school-home partnerships."
--Mary Monroe Kolek, Ph.D., Assistant Superintendent for New Canaan (CT) Public Schools
A very good resource for parent entering the tween years with girls -
