I Want a Friend
But friendships come with challenges - and children need a guiding hand to help them meet those challenges.
I Want a Friend! tunes into the lives of Shira, Dovid, and Tamar - three siblings who learn tried-and-true strategies to:
- cope with rejection
- create friendships
- stand up for themselves
- express what's bothering them
- apologize and make up
- process anger
- identify unhealthy relationships.
Reading these stories to your children, while involving them by discussing their own similar situations, provides a perfect springboard for teaching your children essential, lifelong social skills.
Devorah Benedict's new book enables children to create mutually beneficial relationships that take into account both their own needs and the needs of others, and gives them a strong sense of belonging within their social circle.
This book is also a valuable resource for parents, helping them understand their children's experiences and making them full partners in their children's emotional world.- Yitzchak Becher, psychologist
