Looking for something to do during school shut down with your pre-teen or teenaged daughters (besides letting them watch copious amounts of Netflix... which is okay too!)? ORDER THIS BOOK!
It was a game changer for me in how I learned to handle conflict with a strong and kind voice.
I originally took it out from the library so I could teach my grade 9's more effectively. By the end of the first chapter, I was weeping in relief. It showed me that I had no idea how to handle things in a way that would actually resolve an issue and feel GOOD at the end.
This is the book I recommend the most to families - it will help both you (mom) and daughters figure out how we've been socially conditioned to resolve conflicts - and, show how those ways aren't all that productive. It will also give you a clear way to start expressing yourself that will make life SO much less tricky and much simpler. (And don't we all want that while we're hanging out together for copious amounts of time in the near future?)
Buy it! Now! You'll thank me for SURE!
