Item Description...
Many parents struggle with "going to bat" for their children without alienating the authority figures involved. Whether that authority figure is a coach, a pediatrician, a principal, or a mother-in-law, it takes courage to be an advocate for your child. It also takes wisdom to do so without being defensive or demanding. Author Vicki Caruana provides real-life examples and the confidence parents need to be champions for their children.

Great Resource for Adoptive Parents!  Jul 25, 2007
I speak and write on the subject of adoption and am an adopted person myself. Being bullied is a hot topic for adoptive parents because their children are often the brunt of criticism and bullying because of their adoption. I'll never forget kids on the playground taunting, "Sherrie's adopted, Sherrie's adopted!" How I wish my mom and dad would have had a resource like this. Even though they didn't, I can pass on a rave review to parents of adopted kids. Vicki gives creative and substancial ways for parents to stand up for their kids, yet keeping the crucial line of respect and privacy for the child. Thank you for writing this, Vicki!
For All Parents  Jul 24, 2007
What a compelling title and topic. The difference between advocating and abdicating is explained, and is a challenge to readers. This one-of-a-kind book helps parents stand up for their child(ren) in a variety of situations.

As a speaker/writer to parent audiences, I encourage them to be their child's best advocate. Kids desperately need a Mom or Dad who campaigns on their behalf, but one who does so while modeling wisdom, appropriate behavior, and negotiation skills. I often speak on Boosting a Child's School Success, and reference this book. It compliments what I share and takes the issue of school -- and life -- success beyond my podium.

Author Vicki Caruana writes with candor, sharing personal antidotes and insights, and uses examples and stories from other parents. I enjoyed reading this book and learned a few things myself.

Chapter titles include, The Buddy, the Bully, and the Hero; Knowing When to Step In; Learning to Stand Aside; and When Your Best Isn't Good Enough. And the list of "helicopter parent" behaviors is provocative.

At 168 pages, this is a short, easy read and I recommend it to parents as well as professional educators!
