To help Zack cope with a real-life experience he had with a “friend”, he and his mom wrote a book to help prepare other kids to deal with a range of problematic situations. I Said No! uses kid-friendly language and illustrations to help parents and concerned adults give kids guidance they can understand, practice and use.
Using a simple, direct, decidedly “non-icky” approach that doesn’t dumb down the issues involved, as well as an easy-to-use system to help kids rehearse and remember appropriate responses to help keep them safe, I Said No! covers a variety of topics, including:
- What’s appropriate and with whom
- How to deal with inappropriate behavior, bribes and threats
- When and where to go for help, and what to do if the people you’re turning to for help don’t listen
- Dealing with feelings of guilt and shame
