Model for Effective Communication among Children Revealed in Illustrated Book

Teacher advocates against bullying through reference material

Nevada, US – WEBWIRE

Second graders are taught a vocabulary of feelings, words, and colors. Active listening and congruent sending is the model followed. The main sentence taught is this: I feel ________ when _______, and I wish to see ___________. Here is the example: I feel hurt when you call me names, and I want you to stop.

Good behavior is learned during the formative years of a child. Although it is primarily the responsibility of the parents, teachers also have a role to play in a kid’s character development. This is embodied in MaryJo Clark’s book, Teacher Teacher: Problem Solving without Bullying.”

The illustrated book helps children process their emotions in an effective way. If done right, this will hone their communication skills, which, in turn, will help them create good relationships with others. Originally intended as a material against school bullying, “Teacher Teacher” educates the young ones to resolve issues arising from negative emotions without resorting to violence or hurtful words.

In a review published by Your First Review, Valerie Porter wrote: “There couldn’t be a better time for this book, with so much violence and bullying where children are involved. Any effort to counteract this with down-to-Earth methods should be very welcome in the marketplace and educational world.”

Readers also praised the book’s contribution to developing a child’s behavior. “As a parent, I don’t want my child to feel that she is in no position to talk about her feelings. I’m glad this book is helping her out in that department,” said Constance J. Lattin.
