This is an awesome book! It covers 50 social situations and gives ten tips for how to manage each situation successfully. The authors cover a lot of social situations, such as how to join a group or managing conversation challenges. My favorite section is probably the tips for being a good friend, where they give common sense strategies for being a good play date guest, or good play date host and how to handle varying house rules. It is a super quick read and great for both kids and adults. You can look up which specific situation you are faced with, and you can flip right to that section. I highly recommend it!
Nadine and Donna also have recently published a new book “How to make and Keep Friends: Coaching Children for Social Success”. This is a book geared towards parents and professionals who work with kids who are struggling socially. I will be reviewing that book in a couple of weeks!
