More about the book:
“Why Will No One Play with Me?: The Play Better Plan to Help Children of All Ages Make Friends and Thrive” is a groundbreaking program that has helped thousands of children struggling with social skills to make friends, find acceptance, and have a happy childhood.

Every parent wants their child to be okay – to have friends, to be successful, to feel comfortable in his or her own skin. But many children lack important social and executive functioning skills that allow them to navigate through the world with ease.

Caroline Maguire has worked with thousands of families dealing with chronic social dilemmas, ranging from shyness to aggression to ADHD, and more. In this groundbreaking book, she shares her decade-in-the-making protocol – The Play Better Plan – to help parents coach children to connect with others and make friends. Children of all ages – truly, from Kindergarten to college age – will gain the confidence to make friends and get along with others, using tools such as:
*Social Sleuthing, to learn to pay attention to social cues from other
*Post-Play Date Huddles that help kids figure out what to look for in a friendship
*Reflective Listening that can improve your child’s relationship with their peers
