Cool Calm Kids: Resources to Help Prep to Year 2 Find Better Ways to Deal with Conflict and Bossy Peers

Cool Calm Kids aims to help young children explore better ways to handle conflict and bossy classmates. It follows on from the authors' successful book Bullying: A Whole School Approach and provides guidance, resources and activities for teachers and parents.

The book helps children from Prep to Year 2 explore better ways to deal with conflict and bossy behaviour in a fun and energetic environment through role-play and participation. It helps to develop social skills, body awareness and appropriate language early in a child's life. Students will discover a common language by which they can deal with friendship issues and learn a range of non-violent strategies to deal with peer pressure that are aligned with the ethos of the school.
