Written by Catherine Rondina and illustrated by Dan Workman.
Published by James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2005.


Demonstrating good manners goes way beyond not talking with your mouth full. Rudeness can lead to hurt feelings, misunderstandings, and ultimately conflict. But exactly what constitutes good manners can differ from culture to culture, region to region, and generation to generation. What is acceptable behaviour to some, may be downright rude to others.

Rudeness: Deal with It if You Please shows kids just how harmful rudeness can be, and explains how the keys to conflict resolution — sensitivity, consideration, and respect — are also the basis of good manners everywhere.

  • Rudeness 101 explains how conflict gets started and how it can escalate
  • Letters to the “Conflict Counsellor” show you how to manage in difficult situations
  • Quizzes test your ability to steer clear of arguments
  • A resource guide puts helpful organizations, books and web sites at your fingertips
The Deal With It series helps adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and aims to promote peaceful homes, schools and communities.

Author Catherine Rondina is a columnist and reporter. Her writing for children has appeared in educational anthologies, literacy workbooks for students, and the Deal With It series.

Attractively illustrated, this book is intended for ages 10+.
