              Please, Don't Call My Mother!: How Parents and Schools Can Team Up to Get Kids Back on Track (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Rev ed.)

              What's one of the most serious problems with kids today? Discipline, most parents and teachers will agree. But that doesn't necessarily mean more or even stricter rules, believes Lazares, an experienced school administrator with a special interest in middle-school students. Inste...ad, he tells parents and teachers how to make sure rules and penalties--at home and at school--are clear; if anyone can find a loophole, it's a teenager. Communicate your rules and monitor infractions. And when punishment is necessary, think creatively: what's the easiest way to ensure a child will never break this rule again? If you're the parent or teacher of a child who is a troublemaker, you'll appreciate this book's recommendations for getting kids back on the path to success. John Lazares has been a public school educator for almost 30 years, working as a teacher, principal and superintendent. The founder of an alternative school for at-risk kids in grades 7-12, he is a recipient of the National School Public Relations Award of Honor. Coleen Armstrong spent 30 years teaching grades 7-12. An award-winner for her teaching of journalism, she hosts a television talk show on educational topics.

              Teasing's terrible--but it's one of those problems kids have to learn to handle. Like all Kids Can Choose books, Heidi's Irresistible Hat helps children think through several possible solutions to an interpersonal issue. It shows how a girl deals with a classmate who just can't k...eep his hands off her special hat. She--and the reader--can try several alternatives for controlling the teasing. Heidi could get help from a grownup, ignore it, create a walking wall of friends to protect her, tie the hat on her head so tightly it can't come off ... or? Each choice leads to a different ending for the story. Kids can decide whether they like this ending or want to go back and try a different way of solving the problem.

              Make teaching about feelings fun with this set of whimsical elves. They grin, grimace, groan and gesture through 20 emotions to help children learn how to identify and express such different feelings as pride, anger, excitement and disappointment. Each bright, full-color elf appe...ars on two cards; one is printed with the emotion's name in three languages--English, Spanish and Japanese. The corresponding cards use only the elves, so the cards can be used in a wide variety of matching games. You can play Old Maid, Go Fish--or one of the several special emotions games created by Crary. Each game is described on its own reference card. Engaging and Fun are how parents describe these cards, which provide a balance of comfortable and uncomfortable feelings as well as illustrating intense, moderate and mild emotions. An excellent companion to The Way I Feel, page 38, our Dealing with Feelings series, pages 42-43, and our other books on emotions (see pages 38-45). Ideal for use in emotional literacy lessons, in rehabilitation therapy and in foreign language and English as a Second Language classes. Appropriate for both genders and all ethnic groups.
