How can a parent help a child who feels sad, worried, shy or angry? This imaginative book uses photos of children with simple stories to help both parent and child discuss these difficult emotions. Clinical psychologist Samantha Seymour has created a 'storybook' resource for parents to read with their young children (aged 27). Each story contains ideas for how a child might deal with times when emotions overwhelm them. Practical information for parents is, also, included. Samantha Seymour writes 'If children are often thinking about things in a negative light, then it is probable that their emotions will also be negative. It's vital that we help children learn to develop more positive and realistic ways of thinking. Research shows that children who can understand and cope with emotions do better in school, form stronger relationships, have fewer behavioural problems and generally lead happier, healthier and less stressful lives.'
