- When I was in Education Assistant practicum, I met this student who had been badly abused at home. Social workers had taken her away from her parents to live with her grandparents. She had some behaviours such as running away from school, and I didn’t really understand what it is like to be in her situation, and how her experience with abuse has affected her. So, I bought this book called “Scared Selfless” written by Michelle Stevens.
This book taught me so many things about abuse and what happens to those children who have been abused.
- I really love this children book called “How Full Is Your Bucket?”.It represents how giving pointed individualized praise to those in your family, friends and work can lead to far-reaching mental and physical benefits to productivity and health.
