Inhaltsangabe: The first book to give parents the tools they need to talk with their children about violence, featuring ten scripted "family talks" tested by moms, dads, and kids
In the wake of the devastating string of school shootings, parents everywhere are asking themselves the same question: What kind of violence does my child face and how can I help?
Dominic Cappello, a renowned parent educator and policy advocate on school violence and harassment prevention, offers parents useful advice on speaking with their children about this vital issue. This resourceful book outlines a series of ten easy-to-manage and engaging talks, including real-life scenarios to which every child can relate.
The creative, proven approach of this book comes from more than five years of working with parents, kids, educators, and professionals, focusing on violence in schools, on television, the internet, and in families. Without spouting theory, Ten Talks offers practical steps and real words that will help parents prepare for an honest, direct, and possibly life-saving conversation with their children.
Rezension: A child happens upon a Web site created by classmates that threatens students who don't fit in. A teenage boy approaches a younger girl walking home from school and starts telling her how good she looks. Harmless or potentially violent behavior? Unquestionably, some violent acts (murder, physical abuse) are easy to spot, while others prove much harder to identify. In Ten Talks Parents Must Have with Their Children about Violence, Dominic Cappello, of the National Education Association, sets out to help parents teach their children how to avoid violent situations and stay safe. Each chapter includes a fairly brief but compelling introduction to its topic--violence in the home, in the media, at school, etc.--and then offers thorough notes and questions for adults to ponder. Guidelines on how to launch the conversation with children follow, along with words to review and single-sentence stories for discussion. Most helpful are Cappello's post-talk notes, which guide parents through an assessment of their dialogue and help them identify warning signs. Excerpts from actual parent-child talks and suggestions on engaging the "less-than-enthusiastic child" help illuminate how these sessions can actually produce results. --Liane Thomas
