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!
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.
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.
