My wife, Donna, and I love this book. We have five kids and have been married 32 years. We wish we had "I Can Handle It" when our kids were little. But the good news is that we do read this beautiful book every night. We read it to our 6-year-old baby girl, Cassidy O'Brien Casey, our granddaughter whom we are raising. Every night, Cassidy says to me, after dinner, "Papa, it's time to read the 'Handle It' book!" And we do. She goes to school the next day armed with all your wisdom. Donna has taken the book to work and she has about ten colleagues and friends in a frenzy wanting to get the book for their kids. Susan, thank you for writing it. It has given us much pleasure and is a conduit of love between our baby-girl and us.

Reasonable, but not astonishing. We'd already deployed most of the tactics in this book - from pure common sense. Nonetheless, in some respects in reinforces views and perhaps gives a new angle to them. Average.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough! I like the way it is made up of various stories/scenarios that kids find themselves in and then provides a positive approach to dealing with them. I think adults would also find that Dr Jeffers book provides them with useful tools for difficult situations. I certainly find that when I come up against something unfamiliar or uncomfortable, the mantra "I Can Handle It" helps me to deal with it. I will definitely be buying several copies for my friends and their children!

I feel that this book is excellent, and so does my son Calon, and this is definitely a favourite book of ours at the moment.

After a brief guide for parents, on each two pages there is a story, titled on each page with a child's name on e.g. Eva/Lily/Nick/Joe etc.etc.
Then there is the appropiate title 'I can handle......fear/frustration/sadness and loss/big,big loss/anger/pain/embaressement/responsibility/guilt etc

In first person (i.e. the child 'Eva/Joe etc', a situation/story is described of a problem which results in the emotion in the title.
The solution tells us how 'Eva' handles this situation, what she thinks, what happened etc.

On the two pages there is a stick person, saying stuff like 'No matter what happens, I can handle it' or questioning 'How can I handle this?'.

Yes, we had discussed many of the suggestions in the book before, but these stories reinforce these ideas as being good ways of handling these situations, and I think Calon finds it good and useful to hear stories of other people going through these situations, what they do in these situations, and what happens when they implement these good ideas.

My only qualms are that I wish there was even more stories in it, as there are even more situations that could be included, but 50 stories is a lot so it's still 5 stars from me and calon. I hope for another book too though.

and some stories I would put in different categories than they are in, for example some that I would put under anger are under the titles of frustration or embaressment, but they are also stories of frustration/embaressment so that is fair enough.
