Praise from readers
“I have only had this book for a week, and already I have learned so much about how to help both of my children with a variety of social struggles they've had.” −Rebekah, Amazon
“Before, all I could do for my child was to nag and nag about her off-putting behavior. Then the book arrived...I was thrilled with how the writers were able to identify my child, the different drummer, and how they did so much more than just give advice. They identified behaviors I was only generally aware of. And they gave real hands on strategies that will clearly demonstrate to my child her responses in the give and take of relationships.” −Diana G., Amazon
