Book signing Wednesday 10/2 at 7p.m.

Local authors Dr. Louise Hart and Kristen Caven will be speaking at A Great Good Place for Books tomorrow night about their new book, The Bullying Antidote: Superpower Your Kids for Life.  

Bestselling author Rick Hansen, who wrote The Buddha’s Brain, says it “provides parents with the knowledge and skills necessary to raise strong, resilient, assertive and emotionally healthy kids.” Jonathan Cohen, President of the National School Climate Center, highly recommends it. A recent trade reviewer said, “This is a well-written, understandable, and comprehensive book which your customers will be relieved to find on your shelves.” And one therapist wrote, “If you are looking for the definitive book on Bullying, you have found it. In fact, this book is so comprehensive, it covers societal factors, parenting styles, childhood development, self-esteem, emotional intelligence, brain science, best practices in schools, communication, and family dynamics, and all of the ways these factors contribute to the cause of—and then the solution to—bullying.”

 
 It’s National Bullying Awareness Month, since this is the time kids are back to school and adapting to their new social scene. 

 
If you know a parent anywhere who is struggling with bullying, be their child a bully or a target, please consider sending them the book this week. The authors are asking everyone they know to purchase a copy this weekend so their sales create a “blip” in the publishing world and their hopeful research can find its way into the hands of a wider range of parents.

The book contains many stories from right here in Oakland. We certainly have our troubles, but we’re also getting a lot right!
