Teach life skills based on the very latest evidence-based research. All purchases help advance our goal of helping kids take control of their digital lives.
Hailed as “an absolute must-read” (Jean Twenge) and a book that “will change your kids’ lives” (Jack Canfield), UnSelfie by Dr. Michele Borba explains what parents and educators MUST do to combat the growing empathy crisis among children today—including a 9-step empathy-building program with tips to guide kids from birth through college, and beyond.
Girls struggle with misogyny, sexism, and issues of identity and self-esteem. But they’re also more isolated than ever before: They don’t talk face-to-face to the people around them: they’re texting or on social media for hours at a time. A timely, readable combination of insightful research and real-world examples that illuminate the challenges young women face and the ways to address them.
