Description - Easing the Teasing by Judy Freedman

This book provides the tools you need to help your child learn to cope with painful teasing. Traditionally, teasing was viewed as a rite of passage, something to ignore until (you hope) it just went away on its own. But teasing can have damaging and lasting effects on your child, including low self-esteem, chronic stress, anxiety, dislike of school, or even aggressive behavior. Children need concrete ways to cope with teasers and the emotional turmoil teasing can cause. In "Easing the Teasing", Judy Freedman draws from seventeen years of experience as a social worker in a suburban Chicago school system.Her groundbreaking program successfully teaches children and parents how to effectively deal with teasing and develop life-long coping skills. Here you will learn: the roots of teasing and why some children engage in this behavior; how to talk to your child to find out why he or she is being teased; the ten strategies for dealing with teasers that really work, including self-talk, ignoring, visualization, reframing the tease, disarming the teaser with a compliment, and using humor to lighten up the situation; how you can work with the school and teachers to combat teasing; and, how to help your child form healthy friendships and foster empathy and mutual support. Full of reassuring advice and real-life success stories from children and parents, "Easing the Teasing" shows parents how to give their children the confidence and self-esteem they need to put an end to teasing.
