Marina Koestler Ruben

Reviews & Press

"A thoughtful, humorous, and practical guide for parents, teachers, administrators, and policy makers.  And students too!  Reading and discussing this book with children will be time well spent.  Excellent grist for a faculty meeting.  Goes well beyond the title."

—Dr. Lea Ybarra, Executive Director of CTY


"Marina Ruben uses wisdom, experience, and laser-sharp intuition coupled with support and concrete tools and strategies. This is a must-read book for parents of every school-age child."

—Dr. Fran Walfish, Child and Family Psychotherapist and author of The Self-Aware Parent
