"This topical book begins with an appeal to teachers to remain positive in spite of what's happening outside the classroom and provides ideas to build confidence in addressing students' troubles. It offers valuable insights into dealing with any number of challenges, from children's worries about the world to the parental tendency to overprotect to teachers' need to "recharge" in the midst of a stressful day. Practical and accessible, the book suggests simple ways of guiding honest and responsive discussion, as well as liberating activities that encourage students to disengage from their fears. It addresses children's heavy exposure to violence and stereotypes, especially through the media. It shows teachers how to explore major issues in the lives of their students in a healthy, positive way, and how to encourage stronger, more aware, independent, and successful learners."--Publisher.
