Bullying and Image
About the book:
From dating to drugs, modesty to purity, morals to popularity, teens face all sorts of tough issues. How teens respond to these challenges will influence their future, possibly define their future, maybe even determine whether they have a future or not.
Following four successful books in the uniquely packaged Hot Buttons Series, author, mom, and broadcaster, Nicole O’Dell now debuts two more books on two of the most prevalent issues in the lives of today’s teens: bullying and image. Parents can reach for these quick-reference resources to create healthy conversations with their teens about teasing, cliques and gangs, suicide, or self esteem, piercings and tattoos, eating disorders, and trash talk.
Nicole’s creative strategic scenarios, discussion questions, and Bible studies have and will continue to equip parents to proactively prepare their tweens and teens to respond to challenges with courage and grace.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
I really like the Hot Button books. Each book deals with a different topic that teens deal with on a daily basis. In these two book, Image and Bullying it is no different. I think these books are a must if you have teenager or preteens. You can use these book for resources to help you and your children learn how to deal with these special issues. I highly recommend each of these books. They would be awesome for a Bible study group or Sunday school class too.
The Bullying book is especially special to me because in 2013 the 12 year old daughter of my cousin took her life because of her peers bullying her. It seems she had been dealing with this for several years, and despite changing schools and others things the family tried, it still happened. It is so sad that kids have to put up with others cutting them down, and that is why we need books like this to help each of our children and grandchildren, or whoever you come in contact with, to help them deal with this very upsetting thing that happens. I encourage each person who is in contact with preteens or teens, or anyone else who suffers from what others do and say to them, to get involved, and do whatever you need to do to stop it. This is real folks, and our kids are suffering more than we know.
