Featuring Rosalind Wiseman, New York Times best-selling author
When first published, Rosalind Wiseman’s New York Times best-selling book Queen Bees and Wannabes launched readers head-first into a world where teens face the everyday trials of cliques, frenemies, reputations, gossip, rebellion, bullying, crushes, and relationships. While these issues continue to play out among young people, recent advancements in technology and media have – for better or worse – profoundly altered the speed and ways in which boys and girls communicate. Humiliating photographs can spread around an entire school as fast as the click of a mouse; private conversations become public information when posted to Facebook; and kids are fed media messages everywhere from their cell phone texts to video games to YouTube. Wiseman guides you through the transformations in the adolescent landscape over the past several years, and you will learn concrete strategies for helping children navigate conflict ethically and with social competence.
