Welcome, friend! This book has been created just for you.
There’s a LOT of stress that kids experience – even though adults don’t always recognize it.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed.
Jayden looked at the floor, then at the ceiling. He looked everywhere but at her face…The words were stuck in his throat.
Children have to constantly deal new situations and issues – and they often don’t have the power to solve them on their own…but that doesn’t mean they’re helpless.
Their activities will hep you practice and exploring how you can be the “best you,” even when things seem hard.
This helpful book shows lots of situations – from dealing with a mean older sibling to a parent getting frustrated with them – and explains what a kid can do.
Mindfulness can help us become aware of our feelings and experience them without letting them control us.
After each scenario, other “kids” from the story give advice on how to work through the situation – like taking a break to burn off the excess energy or slowly counting to ten to get a handle on themselves before continuing.
Overall, I really liked this book!
It’s quick read but a valuable one.
I love the message of the book – that you can’t always fix a problem, but you CAN handle how you react to it. (And honestly, with all the stress associated with grad school, I could use that!).
The variety on the situations and the solutions was really impressive – each one dealt with something completely different and the solutions were equally unique.
The strategies were simple, efficient and very doable for someone who is feeling overwhelmed.
The illustrations enhanced the book and gave it that extra oomph that really made it pop for me.
All in all, this is a fabulous how-to guide and really lives up to its title!
