This book can help. In simple words and real-life example, it shows how you can stick up for yourself with other kids (including bullies and teasers), big sisters and brothers, even parents and teachers. It tells you things you can say without putting people down, and things you can do without getting into trouble. You'll feel better about yourself, stronger inside, and more in charge of your life.
You'll also learn about yourself and what's important to you. You'll find out about your feelings, needs and dreams for the future. You'll see that you're responsible for your own behavior and your own feelings--nobody else's. You'll learn positive ways to deal with strong feelings like anger, fear, jealousy, and shame. And you'll discover simple ways to "store" happiness and pride for times when you need them the most.
