McMillan Palgrave
By the author of the national bestseller Raising a Thinking Child, an indispensable guide or parents of preteens.

Raising a Thinking Preteen introduces a unique series of exercises, games, and discussions that parents can share with their eight-to twelve-year-olds and in so doing will help their children recognize and express their feelings, as well as help identify why others behave the way they do. This book can be used by those who are familiar with the "I Can Problem Solve" program from the best-selling Raising a Thinking Child, where it was applied to younger children ages four through seven, or they can easily learn its benefits here for the first time. Using the same pathbreaking technique she described in her first book, Myrna Shure shows parents how her ICPS program can teach the skills all preteens need to learn in order to face challenges confidently and be more successful in nearly every aspect of life now and as adolescents and adults. It also makes a parent's life much easier, as it helps children: Learn to wait for what they want Cope with frustration Get along better with peers Control their impulses and aggressions Resist feelings of depressionThe preteen years are often the last opportunity for parents to teach their children how to think for themselves. This book is the only source with a proven plan to help them do just that.
