New York Times bestselling author, renowned clinical psychologist and international speaker



Michael G. Thompson, PhD, is a consultant, author and psychologist specializing in children and families. He is the supervising psychologist for the Belmont Hill School and has worked in more than seven hundred schools across the United States, as well as in international schools in Central America, Europe, Africa and Asia.


Best Friends, Worst Enemies brings to life the drama of childhood and adolescent relationships, guiding parents to a deeper understanding of the motives and meanings of children’s social behavior.  Here you will find penetrating discussions of the difference between friendship and popularity, how boys and girls deal in unique ways with intimacy and commitment, whether all kids need a best friend, why cliques form and what you can do about them.  Filled with illuminating anecdotes, Best Friends, Worst Enemies probes the magic and the heartbreak that all children experience with their friends.  Parents, teachers, counselors—indeed anyone who cares about children—will find this an eye-opening and wonderfully affirming book.
