Kids Are Worth It!: Raising Resilient, Responsible, Compassionate Kids by Barbara Coloroso


Barbara Coloroso's international bestseller delivers a powerful message about giving children the gift of inner-discipline and the importance of offering them opportunities to make decisions, take responsibility for their actions and learn from their own successes and mistakes. Rejecting the "quick fix" solutions of punishment and reward, Barbara uses everyday family situations -- from sibling rivalry to teenage rebellion -- to demonstrate sound strategies for giving children the inner discipline and self confidence that will help them grow into responsible, resourceful, resilient and compassionate adults.


Barbara Coloroso is an international bestselling author and an internationally recognized speaker and consultant on parenting, teaching, school discipline, positive school climate, bullying, grieving, nonviolent conflict resolution and restorative justice. She has appeared on Oprah, CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN and has been featured in the New York Times, Time, U.S. News & World Report, and Newsweek, among others.


Her uniquely effective parenting and teaching strategies were developed through her years of training in sociology, special education, and philosophy, as well as field-tested through her experiences as a classroom teacher, university instructor, and mother of three.


Over two dozen copies have kindly been gathered for us from across Alberta by the Medicine Hat Public Library via interlibrary loans. Please feel free to visit their circulation desk to grab a copy for yourself! A library card is only $5 for the year, if you don't already have one. (A big thank-you to Keith McLean with MHPL for his support!) Please note: Kids Are Worth It! has been published many times since its first release in 1994. The small differences between the publications will not impact your experience. Whichever version you find will work!


Our book club meeting date for this title will be Wednesday, Dec. 5th @ 8:30 pm (immediately following our Parent Council meeting) at River Heights School.


Please connect with Laura Gale or Laura Underschute if you have any questions!
