Children’s book “Enough with Beating!” launched in Chisinau

The children’s book “Enough with Beating!” – a translation and adjustment from French that was printed at the RP Editor publishing house – was launched in Chisinau. The book was written by Virginie Aladjidi, Caroline Pellissierand Kei Lam with the assistance of French experts in non-violent communication with children, IPN reports.

The launch involved primary school students of the Romanian-French Lyceum “Gheorghe Asachi” of Chisinau, psychologist Daniela Sîmboteanu, who heads the National Center for Child Abuse Prevention, and the editor of the book Rodica Plugaru.



The attending students discussed such issues as quarrels and fury based on the story “Enough with Beating!”, giving multiple examples, including from the period of the pandemic, when they felt frustration and dissatisfaction as they were unable to see their schoolmates and friends. On the initiative of psychologist Daniela Sîmboteanu, the children performed an interactive activity that enabled them to understand that it is normal and human to have feelings, including negative ones, and that everyone feels the emotions in a different way.

Daniela Sîmboteanu underlined the importance of accepting all the human feelings, including the negative ones, which form part of the everyday life. Another important aspect is to learn to control the negative emotions and to express the feelings in the social relations by showing tolerance and respect for the others.

The teachers of the Chisinau Lyceum “Gheorghe Asachi” stressed the necessity of treating the theme of violence among children both at school and in the family and welcomed the message of peace and empathy conveyed by the book “Enough with Beating!”.



The head of the National Center for Child Abuse Prevention noted that the book’s massage is of empathy and non-violence among children and promotes the idea that life tomorrow can be made nicer and better through non-violent communication.

“Enough with Beating!” is available from the bookstores Librarius, Bestseller, Cărturești, Cartier and Făt-Frumos in Chisinau and all over the country and from Elefant.md.

Virginie Aladjidi and Caroline Pellissier are French authors who wrote together over 100 children’s books.
