The success of virtually all interpersonal relationships hinges on the ability to be a friend.
This book advises children in such areas as the basics of conversation and friendship do’s and don’ts. Included are nine easy-to-follow “people” skills such as giving and receiving compliments, introducing yourself, and showing respect and sensitivity, that put getting along with others into manageable steps. A special chapter deals with the challenge of shyness, giving kids practical advice on how to conquer it and grow in self-confidence. For ages 10 and up.





This book is a great resource for adults working with young people who could use some assistance in developing healthy relationships. It includes a lot of good common sense concepts and is written in an easy to read style. I wouldn’t expect a lot of teens to read it themselves (although some might) but if you can deliver the content to them via small group discussion or one on one counseling it can have a great impact.
