Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
This interesting workbook is one of two "What to Do" guides to help children work through negative behaviors and practice new ways of responding to stresses in life. Designed to be used with an adult—a parent, preferably—it begins by explaining to adults how some children react differently to life's stressors and how they can help to change a child's reaction, simply through practice. The book's 12 short chapters are interactive and progress from defining grumbling to recognizing it in oneself to offering alternatives. Illustrated with cartoon-like drawings, the book offers plenty of exercises to engage the child and uses an understanding tone that is all positive reinforcement. The suggestions and activities are ones that can be revisited when necessary. For more serious issues, the author suggests that the book be used in conjunction with professional counseling. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.

This very child-friendly workbook is easy to use and tackles an unusual topic. As both a social worker and a parent I have often struggled with how to talk to kids about their negativity and have been unable in the past to find a helpful resource. This book provides excellent examples, pictures, and activities that help children truly understand the concepts presented. I strongly recommend this book to parents, guidance counselors, and mental health professionals.

I was looking for something to help my kid who gets into a negative thinking pattern. This book was perfect for my 9 year old. Not only did it have information, it had activities. It was right up her alley. She could not wait to have the time to work on it. Thank you for this book.

My son's the one who says he likes nothing we are having to eat at each meal, he doesn't want to play with that toy, or be with that child. Then he does and its fine. This book hopefully will take that initial complaining/grumbling away! I love the series - Worry Too Much is another we have!
