"This book offers real steps for helping empower kids. The lessons are designed in such a way that all children within a classroom would benefit, whether they are the child for whom the lesson was designed or the one for whom the lesson will build empathy, compassion, and understanding. Most books out there are not user friendly, providing off-the-shelf lessons. Mr. Greene has taken a truly easy-to-use methodical approach to problems kids face that can become a pivotal point in turning them around at an earlier age."

"Very practical and usable units, easy to understand and carry out. . . . Child-centered and internally empowering for the student."

Greene details instructional principles to help educators model and mentor effective life skills behaviors for their students.

Helping Students Fix Problems and Avoid Crises includes:
- Insightful stories for teachers and students illustrating each problem
- Practical activities and exercises illustrating techniques to help students address each problem
