Format: Paperback
Although the book is aimed at children aged approx 8 years old I bought this book to read along side my 6 year old daughter. She has had problems at school with speaking out. The text is easy to understand and very positive and empowering for the child. It tells kids about acquiring personal power but reminds them that they are still children and have to accept some aspects of parental input. It encourages respect of others and encourages problem solving. There is a section that focuses on feelings and names them. It encourages the child to explore feelings and to own them and how to deal with them. The only drawback if I could call it that is that it is typically american, however this takes nothing away from the content. A brilliant little book and I would recommend it for anyone wishing to prepare their child for living.

Fantastic book dealing with issues like responsibilty, making choices, ownership of feelings, believing in yourself,etc. Lots of examples and very short stories children can relate to that make it a very friendly easy to read book. Its like having lots of good counselling sessions in one book. My daughter loves it and she's only 8! Defnitely a book I'd recommend and will keep sharing with her into her teenage years.

What a wonderful book for teachers to use to enlighten pupils about a much neglected subject in school life - and as the cherry on top, it might also be a powerful ally in sorting out many of the bullying problems.
This book would inspire future mothers, dads and anyone else important in a childs life, about the important areas to feed into our children - and maybe even to support ourselves to mature emotionally in preparation for child bearing years and beyond. It is simply and clearly written in a manner that child or adult will understand - giving the specifics without an overload and repeat of information, and so keeps ones focus.
I am a grandmother and bought it for my grandson, yet was amazed how meaningful I found it in applying it to my own life!

I first read this book seeking inspiration for my work with children at my Samurai School program. What I actually found was some very clear and concise explanations that I was able to apply to my own life and experience and as a direct result I have been able to make positive change. It is so wonderful to be able to lead, rather than simply direct. I am so impressed it has inspired changes in my syllabus and teaching guides and my program is now an enjoyable positive influence in local schools. This book is for all ages and many lives are all the more better for the authors efforts.

If you have a child like my 9 year old son who is not street wise and who has so called friends who take joy in making him feel bad about himself - then this book will help him or her to understand the way that makes them feel and how to handle it. This book brought my son awareness of his feelings and emotions, and helped him to understand himself a little better and put things in prespective. Also a great way of making him see that he is responsable for his feelings and behaviour.

I bought this book for my 8 year old son. He seems to be struggling at school at the moment with his feelings.

He is abit of a perfectionist and believes winning is the only option but when he is not achieving his goals he is setting it is making him lacks confidence. He is also struggling how to cope with other children's directness (We have some very head strong children at his school). If some one says anything to him like "your not playing" he takes this negatively. He really takes it personally and beats himself up about it.

I wanted a book to help him understand his emotions/feelings and to channel them in a more positive way instead of a negative one.

I have bought a few books now and I always read them before I give them to him to read. Some books can be very deep in talking about feelings but I feel this book does it in a positive way.

This book is good at talking about our own personal self and encourages problem solving. It also explains feelings, which helps and there is a section that focuses on feelings and names them. It encourages the child to explore feelings and how to change there thought pattern and how to deal with them.

Great little book not too long aswell. I will see how he gets on with it over the next few weeks.

This book was exactly what I was hoping it would be. It was exactly as it describes itself in the title. Easy for a ten year old to read and so it allowed my daughter to think about possible ways of altering her behaviour to reduce the teasing she had been getting at school, without me having to interfere in the normal way by talking to her teacher. I think it was particularly good that it allowed her to deal with it all herself, and was easy to understand. I think my 8 year old would also have been perfectly able to read and understand it if needed. Younger children would probably need to work through it with an adult. I see there is also a teacher's guide to go with it now. I would certainly recommend it to any school or parent.

The best recommendation is that my daughter stopped biting her nails to bleeding point and has really got a much more positive attitude to any minor disagreements she and her friends have.
