Comments about Sue's books:

Sue Dinwiddie is an experienced, sensitive teacher of young children and a very effective counselor to parents. In these books she shares her skills for guiding children's behavior in a systematic fashion. These books will assist teachers, parents, and caregivers in helping children resolve their conflicts more easily and amicably and will provide the children with a positive model for future problem-solving.

It is essential that we give young people the skills to resolve their own problems. Sue Dinwiddie's book is a valuable resource for educators who want to help students resolve their disputes peacefully.

Sue Dinwiddie has been a source of information and motivation for my staff. Teachers learned specific strategies for facilitating conflict resolution both in the classroom and at home. At our center the children are learning to facilitate the process themselves!

Sue Dinwiddie has presented her problem-solving and conflict resolution workshops to our parents and to our staff. Both groups were enthusiastic and left the session with the practical tools to meet the challenges of parenting and teaching children of all ages.

Staff reacted very positively to the problem-solving training given by Sue. She was able to assess the developmental level of each person and then facilitate growth in their competencies.

Your books are a wonderful gift to all of us who are working with children. Receiving them, and having a chance to absorb their wisdom, was a high part of this past year for me.
