Grandparent of eight grandchildren
By Melvin g. Ostroff - August 5, 2000
As a Grandparent of eight grandchildren, I have read Cathi Cohen's book with great interest and have recommended it to the parents of our grandchildren. It is a simple building block approach to acquiring social skills and self confidence in children who are struggling to be accepted and do not know why they they are meeting with failure. It is extremely beneficial to the parents who may be challenged in trying to help their youngsters meet with success. I only wish I had it available when I needed it.
A mothers' guide to raising a happy child...
By A Customer - July 31, 2000
I am the mother of two very different children. This book contains logical and understandable guidelines that can be used for both of my children. While reading through the examples, I found myself saying "Yes, that's just like my daughter/son" and "that may not work with my daughter but would work with my son". The chapters are well written and easy to understand. Ms. Cohen has combined her experiences as a therapist and the reality of being a mother and placed them in a very valuable tool for parents. Thank you Ms. Cohen..
Raise Your Child's Social IQ
By A Kid's Review - August 1, 2000
Raise Your Child's Social IQ is a "must have in your back pocket" therapeutic cookbook for working with children presenting with social skill deficits. We use it regularly in our pediatric group psychological practice. You will find the book to be well-organized and logical in its presentation. Importantly, its easy for parents to understand and use along with your child's clinician in developing targeted treatment goals and implementing them in the child's daily life. Our typical approach is for the parents to use one of our copies for their work with the child at home. Together, clinician and parent(s) make a formiable therapeutic team. If you have or treat children with social skill problems and you don't have this book you have missed the boat on an excellent resource.
