Every parent wants their child 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. Maguire has worked with thousands of families dealing with chronic social dilemmas, ranging from shyness to aggression to ADHD, and more. Here she shares The Play Better Plan to help children of all ages gain the confidence to make friends and get along with others. -- adapted from jacket
