Tips & Strategies
Signe’s books and workshops are designed to provide professionals, parents, and young people with important insights into kids’ thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while also giving practical, easy-to-understand, and ready-to-use strategies and solutions.
Keep in mind: there are no easy answers to problems such as anger in children or bullying. If these issues were easy, you wouldn’t be researching them and I wouldn’t be writing books on the subjects. This is challenging stuff–both for kids and the adults trying to help them. The tips and strategies on these pages are not designed to minimize the complexity of the issues facing kids, parents, professionals, and schools, but rather to make these extremely challenging issues more manageable.
